Silence

Ohiyesa - Dr. Charles Eastman- Santee SiouxSilence is the absolute poise or balance of body, mind and spirit. The man who preserves his selfhood is ever calm and unshaken by the storms of existence…

If you ask him: “What is silence?” he will answer “It is the Great Mystery. The holy silence is his voice.”

If you ask: “What are the fruits of silence?” he will say: “They are self-control, true courage or endurance, patience, dignity and reverence. Silence is the cornerstone of character.”
