Silence is a quality of mind, a way of being, and a powerful type of presence in the world.
Nature offers silence – not as ‘no noise’ but rather as ‘noise-less-ness’. This comes from stilling those parts of us that clamor for recognition, validation, achievement and expression.
When we view silence as ‘withholding judgement’ rather than ‘biting our tongue’, we are able to appreciate the complementarities and intersections in our life.The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society
