Silence is the bridge.
When the mind is silent you are in communication with existence,
when the mind is noisy, you are disconnected your own noise functions like a wall around you.
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls."
~ Mother Teresa
