The silence that concerns us here is not the silence of inertia; it is the stillness of a work of great intensity that is taking place in a climate of perfect harmony. Nor is it emptiness or absence; it is plenitude, a fullness comparable to that experienced by two human beings who love each other very deeply and share something that cannot be expressed in words or gestures. Silence is a quality of the inner life.
Silence is easy to achieve on the physical plane; you only have to close your doors and windows and stop up your ears. But we are not talking about this kind of silence. Physical silence is necessary, of course; indispensible in fact, because it makes possible that other silence, the inner silence of thoughts and feelings which is so much more difficult to achieve. Yes, for it is within oneself that there is so much noise, it is in one's inner sanctum that there is so much turmoil, so many explosions, so many arguments.
