Silence is the absolute
poise of balance of body, mind and spirit. What are the fruits of silence? They
are self-control, true courage or endurance, patience and reverence. Silence is
the cornerstone of character.
home we find a place where we can be quiet for an hour, carefully reviewing
what we have done. We thank God from the bottom of our heart that we know Him
better. Taking this book down from our shelf we turn to the page which contains
the twelve steps. Carefully reading the first five proposals we ask if we have
omitted anything, for we are building an arch through which we shall walk a
free man at last. Is our work solid so far? Are the stones properly in place?
Have we skimped on the cement put into the foundation? Have we tried to make
mortar without sand?
