Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over. Octavia Butler Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom. Francis Bacon Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation. Jean Arp Silence. In the quiet of the early morning, the crickets can be heard heralding the new day, the new beginnings. Silence, then slowly the Mother earth starts to wake up. The robin red-breast starts to sing, the morning glories open faces to the Sun, Father Sol. The beauty of the silence is broken in the song of the universe. Here we stand. In the midst of the glory of the day, knowing hope has risen with the glow, with the silence. For only in silence, can we hear the gods. Only in the quietness of our minds, our hearts can the small whisper of spirit bring a knowing that we can only get from listening. We forget to listen. We fill our days, our nights even our sleep with the sounds of the World, of the people, as if we are afraid to hear our own inner truths. And so we must return to silence. And Hope.
