Quote of the Day - Silence



"What is silence? Why is silence held in such esteem by spiritual people of all relgions? Silence is far more than the absence of sound. It is a complex human reality and can be a precious means of entry into the spiritual world. Rightly understood, silence is rich and positive. It is, perhaps, the ultimate modesty of the mind before the mystery of being. And have you ever remarked how the first shock of real beauty renders us silent?"
