"Perhaps the most important thing 
we bring to another person 
is the silence in us, 
not the sort of silence 
that is filled with unspoken criticism 
or hard withdrawal. 

The sort of silence 
that is a place of refuge, 
of rest, 
of acceptance of someone as they are. 

We are all hungry for this other silence. 
It is hard to find. 
In its presence 
we can remember something 
beyond the moment, 
a strength on which to build a life. 

Silence is a place of great power and healing."
