Silence, a basic human need


Why do we need stillness and silence? Because that’s what human beings need just as we need food, we need air, we need nutrition, we need love, we need friendship, we need family, we need lots of things. Well, we also need to respect and deepen this contemplative side of ourselves, and if you don’t think you have a contemplative side, well, you’ve forgotten it, because you do, every one of us here. And if you don’t believe it, then go and meditate with some children, or introduce meditation to your own children, and you will remember then that as a child this contemplative aspect, this contemplative part of you, was real.
