Soul sickness – desire for noise. Conscience speaks in silence. The noisy world is built by a man who does not want to listen to his conscience. One must learn to be silent in order to understand what lives in the heart. When a person is silent, his heart gets warm. – Archpriest Andrei Tkachev
Even in the silence of the world there is still the humming of the florescent lights of our own making. It is as if complete silence would decimate us. So even that which should be silent screams.
I am crushed by silence. I am broken by silence. The whisper of God can bring the universe into existence. And remove it as well. I do not need noise. The silence of God is deafening.
