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.

My Exercise:

Silently dwell on these:

  1. Talk most and you learn least.
  2. Still waters run deep.
  3. Real growth is silent as it is gradual.
  4. The mightiest forces in nature are silent.
  5. 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.
