Meaningful silence can be hard to find – even when our surroundings are free from distractions, we may still hear the inner dialogue that makes it challenging to focus.

However, once we clear the mental landscape and allow quiet to enter our consciousness, silence can be the gateway for great clarity and strength in our meditations.

With peace in our sights, here are a few quotes to help settle the rippling pools within…

“When the mind is not quiet… our attention feels like it is being pulled in a thousand different ways…With awareness, we realize there is a deep silence that exists behind all of those voices.” (Don Miguel Ruiz, Jr.)

In becoming masters of our minds (instead of the other way around) it can be helpful to see that silence is not just the absence of noise, but the active presence of something much larger and filling.


“Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom.” (Francis Bacon)

Silence helps us grow in ways that are invisible to the eye but essential to the mind – we learn to analyze our world and think critically through our reflection, rather than our expression.


“Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.” (The Dalai Lama)

Quiet minds speak loudest. Even though being vocal all the time can build an image of confidence and intelligence – real wisdom grows from a place of stillness.


“Silence is a source of great strength.” (Lao Tzu)

Much of the distractions that cloud our vision are self-created. Difficult though meditation might be at first – learning to develop “quiet minds” gives us inner strength on which we can always rely, no matter how many other distractions fill the world around us.
