  1. On Silence

    We may be silent with our mouth, but what’s happening in our mind? So many voices, so many things. Real silence is when the mind is quiet. Scriptures describe silence in different ways.

When you had finally learned to crawl you saw everyone around you walking, and you wanted to be like them! So you tried to walk, and your father, your mother held your finger. You fell down.
