Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is
the silence in us
not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken
criticism or hard withdrawal.
The sort of silence that is a place of refuge,
of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are.
We are all hungry for this other silence.
It is hard to find. In its presence we can remember something beyond
the moment, a strength on which to build a life.
Silence is a place of great
power and healing.
