Sometimes silence can be disconcerting and can make people feel uncomfortable, it can also be interpreted as a way to stop or simply postpone communication. I enter into silence for profound contemplation about life in unity with the all.It is also an opportunity to take time for deeper reflections to discover better ways to approach interactions in a peaceful manner, conducive to wellness. It becomes a great resource to listen to the inner wisdom that comes from within in a spirit of expanded awareness in meditation. It is from this inner source that speech becomes meaningful in each interaction, facilitated by a conscious employment of silence – within and without.
Silence is also a way of awakening to the potential of communications that come from the highest of our values and ideals.
This day, my sharing with you arises from the little book of aphorisms of the Spaniard, Balthasar Gracian:
“A prudent silence is the sacred vessel of wisdom.”
