Daily Steps In Self Mastery – Day 12: Silence
Verb; cause to become silent; prohibit or prevent from speaking.
Today I will listen much. Silence gives thought time to mature and deepen. It suggests power in reserve. Through frequent periods of silence, think things out to a conclusion and form sound judgements.
Silently dwell on these:
- Talk most and you learn least.
- Still waters run deep.
- Real growth is silent as it is gradual.
- The mightiest forces in nature are silent.
- To hear the spiritual, you must listen.
Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves together; that at length they may emerge, full-formed and majestic, into the daylight of life, which they are henceforth to rule. ~Carlyle.
