We are called to embrace silence

"Silence is a privileged entry into the realm of God and into eternal life. There is a huge silence inside each of us that beckons us into itself, and the recovery of our own silence can begin to teach us the language of heaven. For silence is a language that is infinitely deeper, more far-reaching, more understanding, more compassionate, and more eternal than any other language...
There is nothing in the world that resembles God as much as silence." - Meister Eckhart

That is a powerful quote to reflect on today. And remember that silence is God's first language! I learned that from Father Thomas Keating!
