"But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you; And the birds of the heavens, and let them tell you." - Job 12:7

 
What is Silent Communion?
By T. S. Nicholson

image What is Silent Communion?

Silent Communion is the precept that all of God's creation is perfect (by His design), and that in being perfectly created by Him, He excludes no life from the ability to commune with Him. Thus, Silent Communion represents not a communion in silence, but a communion that is silent to mankind but nevertheless exists fully in forms that we cannot understand.

Illusions, deceptions, and abuse of mankind's concepts of dominion and stewardship surface each time we disregard that the same loving kindness and compassion bestowed upon us humans by the Lord is also bestowed by Him upon all life and creation. Our minds, egos, and motivations outside the true will of our loving God foolishly develop insatiable appetites that seem to lean toward raising our own status by claiming knowledge in areas that we cannot and do not fully understand.

This causes fallacies in our common sense, science, and theological interpretation and leads us to accept and promote corrupt thoughts, actions, and deeds in all arenas of our lives, both directly and indirectly. Such corruption has existed in various forms over the centuries and further fosters beliefs that mankind is superior and all knowing. The true characteristics of superiority and all knowingness are solely of God, not man, but even many great Saints and intellects have missed this point in their treatment of life outside of our own species.

What is the Silent Communion Website?
A place to examine one's heart.

image What is the Silent Communion Website?

Silent Communion is the brainchild of T. S. Nicholson, born out of a manuscript six years in progress, and is now being turned into this dynamic site to encourage you and present a contemplative method of looking at current relationships between humans and creation that one might need to examine or re-examine in his or her own heart. All change takes place within the heart first. Why don't you take the time to examine yours?

The philosophy of Silent Communion is based in faith, specifically Catholicism, but can be just as easily applied to any Christian or non-faith individual or group. The goal of the Silent Communion website is to challenge currently held concepts and beliefs by providing a means to examine the heart and mind while illuminating truths that often go unnoticed by those of us that live in the modern world. What you walk away with from this experience will depend upon how much you are willing to examine your own heart and mind and then what effort you are willing to put into your personal discoveries.

A new topic from the manuscript will be added to the website each week or bi-weekly until the entire original work exists here. The pace of each addition matches the time that one should use to complete an examination in that area before moving on to the next section.
