Silence

Silence is really absolutely necessary for the human spirit if it really is to thrive. Not only just to thrive, but to be creative, to have a creative response to life, to our environment, to our friends. Because the silence gives our spirit room to breathe, room to be.
In silence, you don’t have to be justifying yourself, apologising for yourself, trying to impress anyone. You just have to be. It’s a most marvellous experience when you come to it. The wonder of it is that, in that experience, you are completely free. You are not trying to play any role; you are not trying to fulfil anyone’s expectations.
(John Main, The Hunger for Depth and Meaning)
