Silence of the World
This stunning forest shot was taken by photographer Teresa Florak, and combined with the incisive words of the Trappist Monk Thomas Merton from his novel No Man is an Island. The depth of space and silence of this expansive Autumn forest are highlighted by the words which invoke reverence for the forests and mountains of the world. This poster will fit well in a yoga studio, or in any room close to a natural setting, or which needs a reminder of the beauty of our natural surroundings.
Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was a Trappist monk, author and poet who combined social criticism with a reverence for the natural world.
Text on Poster:
Those who love their own noise are impatient of everything else. They constantly defile the silence of the forests and the mountains and the sea. It is the silence of the world that is real. Our noise, our business, our purposes...these are the illusion. -Thomas Merton from No Man Is An Island
