It is written.
There is a language of the world, a universal truth, not specific to one person more than any another, but to all.
It is unspoken. It happens in the silences, filling the gaps between us. It wisps around, an energy that is cosmic.
To hear it, we must believe in our collective oneness. Your personal journey is linked to mine, and my experience of this world is yours too.
We are using it, right now, in response to an external force. It is felt. The collective nod, an extended heart, a sadness we share.
It is Maktub.
