It is a paradox that we encounter so much internal
Noise when we first try to sit in silence.
– Gunilla Norris with thanks to Friends of Silence
Silence is a privileged entry into the realm of God and into eternal life. There is a huge silence inside each of us that beckons us into itself, and the recovery of our own silence can begin to teach us the language of heaven. For silence is a language that is infinitely deeper, more far-reaching, more understanding, more compassionate, and more eternal than any other language.… There is nothing in the world that resembles God as much as silence.
– Meister Eckhart with thanks to Friends of Silence
