Solitude and Silence Induce Serenity. {82.}


Causes and effects are related.

The cause leads to the effects,
and the effects can in certain ways
alter causes accordingly.

If this doesn’t seem very clear,
let it be so, for now.

Aristotle’s famous quotes include,
“Whosoever is delighted in solitude
is either a wild beast or a god.”

Love for solitude obviously proves
a preference for one’s own company
to that of others,
and this is something
not everyone is capable of.

Most people flee from their selves
towards friends, into groups and crowds.

Silence in solitude stills the mind,
rendering it fit for divine worship.

I would unhesitatingly recommend
periodic spells of solitude and silence,
as a great tranquilizer and rejuvenator.
