Silence your body to listen to words.
Silence your tongue to listen to thoughts.
Silence your thoughts to listen to your heart beating.
Silence your heart to listen to your spirit.
Silence your spirit to listen to His Spirit.

- Mama Maggie

We avoid silence.

But silence is essential, if we are to learn to hear God.
