Elegant Silence

During the time you are practicing mindfulness, you stop talking – not only the talking outside, but the talking inside. The talking  inside is the thinking, the mental discourse that goes on and on and on inside. Real silence is the cessation or talking – of both the mouth and of the mind. This is not the kind of silence that oppresses us. It is a very elegant kind of silence, a very powerful kind of silence. It is the silence that heals and nourishes us. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective  #thay #thaysaid #mindfulness #healing #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #silence #elegantsilence #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes
