None can say to the Divine, "I have known Thee", and yet all carry Him in themselves, and in the silence of their soul can hear the echo of the Divine's voice. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwm/14/relationship-with-the-divine#p6</ref>
In the perfect silence of the contemplation all widens to infinity, and in the perfect peace of that silence the Divine appears in the resplendent glory of His light. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwm/14/silence#p14</ref>
Truth is above mind; it is in silence that one can enter into communication with it. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwm/14/truth-is-above-mind#p21</ref>
Silence all outside noise, aspire for the Divine's help; open integrally to it then it comes and surrender to its action, and it will effectively bring about your transformation. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwm/15/transformation#p29</ref>
It is obviously in the silence of the mind that it is possible to perceive the Divine Command. The true way of knowing is above words and thoughts. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwm/10/aphorism-262-263-264#p6</ref>
Feeling alone in the midst of human beings is the sign that you are beginning to feel the need to find in your own being contact with the Divine Presence. So you must concentrate in silence and try to enter deep within to discover the Divine Presence in the depths of your consciousness, beyond all mental activity.
