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
Mother Teresa's quote is reaffirmed when we go out into nature. You cannot get close to, or interrelate with her wild creatures without quiet. You cannot fully appreciate and feel the gentle winds or the cooling rains without quiet. You cannot smell the full fragrance and bouquet of the flower without quiet. We need to use all of our senses including hearing, to truly be aware of ourselves, our surroundings and to be closer to nature and God.
