There is a power residing in silence. We spend our whole life being bombarded by noise and it can be difficult to find a space to drop into that silence. There are a number of people who create noise as they do not want to be in that place of silence for fear of hearing what their spirit is telling them. You do NOT have to have absolute silence to feel it, you can create it by quietening your mind, taking time in nature, practising mindful breathing, perhaps on the yoga mat.
Sometimes the best response is to remain silent.
