Practicing Inner Silence

Share ~

Blurred trees with quote from mother teresa

How is it possible to reach inner silence? Sometimes we are apparently silent, and yet we have great discussions within, struggling with imaginary partners or with ourselves. Silence means recognizing that my worries can’t do much.

Silence means leaving to God what is beyond my reach and capacity. A moment of silence, even very short, is like a holy stop, a sabbatical rest, a truce of worries.

Practice stillness, silence, calm, meditation…it doesn’t matter what you call it; just do it for at least 10 minutes every day.

Attended St. Matthias many years ago and keep in the loop about St. Matt's happenings through my mom (Reta Craig) and sister (Jennifer Craig) and more currently, my work to bring the St. Matthias Community online.
