Silence matters in the living of your life to understand your relationship to the whole. How else would you be able to understand your individual essence if you didn't have the perspective of your self in contrast to nothingness?
Like music notes splashed on composition paper, the notes are in relationship to both each other and that upon which they are written.
You are in relationship to each other and relationship to the silence in which you reside.
Once this awareness has been captured and calibrated, a heightened state of inner peace is received.
