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.”
    – Easwaran, Eknath.
