Our physical forms are the vehicle through which our spiritual essence gets to experience its own mysterious creation - to be bewildered by its creation, shocked by it, in awe of it and even confused by it.

It’s gonna sound like artsy hipster crap, but there’s meaning behind silence, and it’s important to surround yourself with people who can appreciate that. You’ve got to spend your time with people who can sit silently with you and say everything they need to say without opening their mouth. If they classify your thoughtfulness as an awkward silence they’re rarely worth being around.
