Noble Silence

Silence gives one the space 
to notice one's own thoughts. 
Silence puts one in touch 
with the reality of the heart, 
whatever it might be. 
Silence makes it easier 
to watch one's actions. 
Silence protects one 
from oneself. 
Silence of the human kind 
allows other living things 
to have a voice again 
- the birds, the air, the insects . . . 
even silence itself.
