Real silence

"Real silence is both supremely simple and yet not easy. It draws us into a dimension always open to those who will allow themselves to be centered. But centering bars us from many irrelevances in which we take a guilty pleasure." Wendy Beckett in Meditations on Silence, p.10. 

About the book: I bought this little book second hand. It is published by Dorling Kindersley and the first American edition is 1995. The text copyright is the same year for Sister Wendy. I am assuming that Sister Wendy Beckett does not mind that I promote her book here by using a few of her words about silence. This is to help us to deepen our call to embrace silence.
