There is truth in the saying "Silence is Golden". In silence, we learn to truly hear what the ears cannot. With silence, we can hear the deepest desires of our hearts. Silence allows our souls to discern the true path to enlghtenment. silence allows us to hear the cries of anguish of our neighbors -- their cries for help. That is why it is important for us to allow for moments of silence everyday, for then, and only then can we really, truly hear.
