Silence is one of the best & clearest conversations you can have with anybody.
Speech comes from the head and tends to be clumsy. Yet, when you look someone in the eye, and they hold your gaze and are comfortable being silent with you – this is where true connection and conversation is.
(This is also one of the quickest ways to identify a soul-to-soul connection.)
Today, during one of your many conversations, when the conversation comes to an end or a still point, don’t try to fill it with more speech. Instead, look at them in the eye, be quiet and see what happens. If they relax into being quiet with you, see how long you can be quiet together.
Silence is also conversation. ~ Ramana Maharshi
