The Path of Silence


In reality, there is more than one kind of silence: the silence of death and the silence of a higher degree of life.

Scroll down page to read a longer description and the table of contents.

How wrong we are to think that silence denotes emptiness, nothingness, the absence of all activity or creation. In reality, there is more than one kind of silence: the silence of death and the silence of a higher degree of life. It is this silence, that of the higher degree of life, that concerns us here and that we must try to understand. This is not the silence of inertia; on the contrary, it is the stillness that surrounds a work of great intensity taking place in a climate of perfect harmony. Nor is it emptiness or absence; on the contrary, it is fullness, a fullness comparable to that experienced by two human beings who love each other very deeply and share something that cannot be expressed in words or gestures. Silence is a quality of the inner life

1 review for The Path of Silence

  1. Hassan from Chelsea, London

    I have just started reading ‘ The Path of Silence’ again as it seems very relevant to helping me resolve present day difficulties. I find it hard to remain spacious and still and saying that I have just opened the book and read the following paragraph:
    ” You spend your time brooding on all your worries and grievances and do no positive work on yourself. Silence is a condition that prepares the way for the work….The real work is to concentrate freely on the infinite goodness of God.
