A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on paramahansa, yogananda, spiritual diary, silence, practical, inner, discipline, castle, and peace

Build your inner environment. Practice Silence! I remember the
wonderful discipline of the Great Ones. When we used to talk and
chatter, they would say: "Go back into your inner castle." It was
very hard to comprehend then, but now I understand the way of peace

A Quote by Mother Teresa on mother, teresa, a simple path, silence, prayer, god, and listening

I always begin my prayer in silence, for it is in the silence of the
heart that God speaks. God is the friend of silence—we need to
listen to God because it's not what we say but what He says to us and
through us that matters.

A Quote by Walter Russell on soul, creator, beauty, music, technique, knowledge, love, sound, vibration, silence, light, divinity, truth, stillness, and god

The beauty of a piece of music is not in its technique but in the Soul of its creator; nor is it in the
sound vibrations of the piece but in the silence of the Light from which the sound springs.

A Quote by Li-Young Lee on speech, silence, presence, and breathing

I've been thinking about something for a long time, and I keep noticing that most human speech—if not all human speech—is made with the outgoing breath. This is the strange thing about presence and absence. When we breath in, our bodies are filled with nutrients and nourishment. Our blood is filled with oxygen, our skin gets flush; our bones get harder—they get compacted. Our muscles get toned and we feel very present when we're breathing in. The problem is, that when we're breathing in, we can't speak. So presence and silence have something to do with each other.
