I'm blind and Matthew's commentary on inner silence, light, darkness, life, death & (dis)ability pointed me to these words of Sufi Saint, M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen:

O Man!
You think that you can come to know
the nature of all things found everywhere
solely through your investigation.
There is however
a Truth that governs such knowing.
That Truth is as follows:
The State of Silence will be invaluable to you.
Let the Form of Divine Luminous Wisdom grow
from within that Inner Silence.
Realize yourself as the Consciousness
within the Form of that Divine Luminous Wisdom.
It will appear as One.
That Form is That.
And That is You.
That State is One.
It is That which resplends everywhere
as the All-Pervading Radiant Effulgence.
That is not contained
within the divisiveness of religions.
It is beyond the beyond.
It is Silence in the Form of Consciousness.
This State is extremely rare.
One who has realized this State is also rare.
