An Inner Restfulness

Truth and serenity lie sleeping in silence and solitude. The greatest malady of our time is the absence of stillness and silence. Empty your heart; sit in stillness. Quiet your fears; rest in God.

Without listening, it is impossible to know God – or peace. Prayer emerges naturally from silence. Silence produces an inner restfulness that helps the soul to soar. Silence gives us space for receptivity; it allows us to hear the speechless language of God and to respond with our hearts. To become more and more silent, to enter deeply into creative silence, takes courage. The wordless is foreign to us. Yet God transcends language and intellect.
