We can’t find the peace of silence without stopping. Running faster and faster, pushing ourselves harder, will never bring it within our reach.
We won’t find it anywhere but here.
The moment we’re able to really stop, both the movement and the internal noise, we begin to find a healing silence. Silence is not a deprivation, an empty void.
The more space we make for stillness and silence, the more we have to give both to ourselves and to others.
