If a silent mind is without thoughts or movements, what place is there for thoughts of the Divine or for spiritual aspirations?
In the entirely silent mind there is usually the static sense of the Divine without any active movement. But there can come into it all the higher thought and aspiration and movements. There is then no absolute silence but one feels a fundamental silence behind which is not disturbed by any movement.
