There is a Silence that we don’t know. And yet it is as near to us as our breath.
This Silence is a subtle and beautiful Stillness that is vaguely familiar and yet unknown to us in our ordinary state of consciousness. The modern world has all but shut-out the beauty and healing power of Silence, and we need to reclaim it if we are ever to become whole.
Silence has been referred to as the Eternal, or Holy Silence, a vast Stillness, or an unnameable Presence. No matter how valiant our efforts may be to pin a label on it, words can only point to the contours of a very great mystery. Silence just IS.
The aim of this book is to illuminate how we can renew and deepen our relationship with Silence. Within the gentle folds of Silence is the freedom we long for. This is the open secret of the sages, and it belongs to you as well.

The beauty and wonder of the natural world offer us a window into ourselves, if we know how to look. It is a precious gift, but most of us don’t know how to open it.
We have been trained to think that nature is separate from us. But nothing could be further from the truth. We are entwined with the natural world, like a tree with its roots.
When we come upon the silence of a majestic mountain or listen to joyful birdsong on a spring morning, we are invited into the present moment, where there is no past and no future. In these rare and wonderful moments, the thinking mind stops its constant chatter, and we encounter a dimension of being where there is no time. It is the gateway to a sacred dimension within every human being.
When we are in communion with nature, we are in communion with ourselves. And it is within this mysterious and beautiful relationship that we begin to see ourselves as we really are.
