ELEANOR,

Sacred silence engenders stillness. It IS stillness. And that stillness opens up the dimension of spiritual existence -- that luminous world that awaits our discovery as soon as we redirect our attention from external things to our own radiant depths... Silence is not merely a discipline; rather, it is primarily a state of being. It is in, through, and as silence that we discover our authentic identity, the Self.
~ FROM SACRED PATHS BY GEORG FEUERSTEIN
(TAKEN FROM THE FRIENDS OF SILENCE WEB PAGE)



ELEANOR,
You will eventually tire of me speaking of silence and solitude. That is ok. Maybe it will make you curious enough to develop the spiritual discipline of silence in your life.
May it be so.

An important point the author makes about silence in the above quote should be noted and remembered.

Silence is not merely a discipline; rather, it is primarily a state of being.

Love,
Papa
