God's breath is heard in quietness and felt in stillness. Beware the noises and clamor of ego which drown out the divine whisper.
...it is in the stillness, in the silence, that the word of God is to be heard. There is no better avenue of approach to this Word than through stillness, through silence. It is to be heard there as it is -- in that unself-consciousness, for when we are aware of nothing, that word is imparted to us and clearly revealed.
