A Secret Ingredient To Life…Silence

“Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us, not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal. The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are.

We are all hungry for this silence. It is hard to find.

In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment, a strength on which to build a life.

Silence is a place of great power and healing.”

~ Rachel Naomi Remen

Sometimes, there is nothing more that can be added. Sometimes, in order to make a true impact, a statement must stand alone. Sometimes, silence is best.
