The Sound of Silence...42/52 Weeks

"Silence is the great teacher, and to learn its lessons you must pay attention to it. There is no substitute for the creative inspiration, knowledge, and stability that come from knowing how to contact your core of inner silence. The great Sufi poet Rumi wrote, Only let the moving waters calm down, and the sun and moon will be reflected on the surface of your being." - Deepak Chopra


It is imperative that we understand the importance of silence in our relationships because it truly can speak louder than words. There are times our hearts are so full of love that there are no words that can express the depth of it and the sharing of the silence between lovers is a sacred thing. Other times, we can be so angry that, while there may be words to express it, it is best to keep silent because words spoken in anger cannot be taken back. It has been said that the man who doesn't understand your silence will never understand your words. I think we should all the take the time to embrace the silence and listen with our hearts, only then will we truly understand.
