Silence of the heart

Silence and stillness

Silence and solitude are not just luxuries for a committed few.  They are the very ground in which God places his seed and they are possible even in the midst of a busy life and a hectic schedule, for the silence is the silence of the heart and the solitude a trust in God beyond all else.  To gain this inner silence and solitude it is, however, often necessary for us to risk at times entering a period of external silence when we can be alone with God.
