Do you know what silence is? Consider Robert Mulholland’s suggestion –
“We tend to think of silence as simply being still…. The practice of silence is the radical reversal of our cultural tendencies. Silence is bringing ourselves to the point of relinquishing to God our control of our relationship with God. Silence is a reversal of the whole processing, controlling, grasping dynamic of trying to maintain control of our own existence. Silence is the inner act of letting go.”
