If you have ever had the good fortune of knowing someone you could sit with, or do absolutely anything with, and not have to say a word; you have come to know one of the greatest feelings on earth. To just be able to be with another person; there’s no other pastime quite like it.
But of course something as profound as silence is perhaps only best understood by those who have the feeling to understand it. If someone does not understand your silence, they will most probably never understand your words.
When it comes to silence in love; maybe it was Rumi who said it best, “Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.” And that inner bond is given the opportunity to become tangible through the intangibility of silence.
Silence isn’t something always meant to be filled, it is not always a void. Silence is a place where beauty and life can truly be felt. Silence is not empty.
