The gift of silence
Author: Thich Naht Hanh
We live in the continuous search for happiness, and in the relentless race to reach it we do not notice the extraordinary wonders that the world around us is already rich in. Every day, every hour, every moment beauty calls us, but we rarely listen. Because in order to hear his voice and be able to answer it, a condition that has become rare is necessary: silence. In this little book, the Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the path to take to overcome the noise cage that surrounds us by depriving us of freedom, and shows us a path of peace among the most confused and chaotic places of our mind. "The gift of silence" thus allows us to re-establish, within us, that order and that serenity capable of making us look deeply at what surrounds us, to understand who we really are and what we really want from our life.
