The first unwritten scripture was coded in silence, millions of years ago, before humans arrived on this planet. That continues to be the language of creation. God’s mother tongue must be silence! The word spirituality starts with the word Spirit who communicates through the medium of silence. God is attuned to earless hearing and wordless speaking.
I regard silence held in love as the best prayer ground before God.
