Thanks to Kevin Rose’s newsletter, I was able to read this note by Mister Rogers that is so relevant and habit-changing. Hope this fuels your Sabbath and changes your life.
“I don’t think we give that gift anymore (the gift of silence). I’m very concerned that our society is much more interested in information than wonder. In noise, rather than silence…how do we encourage reflection? Oh my, this is a noisy world.”
“I get up every morning at least by 5AM. I have a couple hours of quiet time, reflect about what is important.”
“What can we do, to encourage people to have more quiet in their lives, more silence? Real revelation comes through silence.”
