Spiritual Tune-up: It Takes SILENCE

God is the friend of silence …
We need silence
to be able to touch souls.

– Mother Teresa

… because, I suppose, it calms US down.

Wow. Even GOD likes it when we seriously calm down.
It enables us to be comfortable with ourselves (or FORCES us to be!),
so then we can be more calm and comfortable with others.
Are you having trouble touching other souls beneficially?

“Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

It does not require long sessions of silence (like hours, or days)
– though that might be helpful sometimes for some people.
But it is a good practice sometimes, maybe fairly often,
to just sit down and shut up for a few minutes 🙂 .
And “shut up” means to let your mind relax too.
That may take some practice, but is a very heathful activity.

“The Buddha compares the furious mind to a runaway chariot:
only those with courage and endurance can control it.”
– Eknath Easwaran
