The Second Degree of Silence - Silence in Actions
The contemplative soul who is seeking, or enjoying, union with God performs all his or her actions in a contemplative way.
The best way to practice this is in the kitchen,
- When you make your breakfast, you can make it in a hurried, anxious, or rushed way. Or, you can make your breakfast in a peaceful, prayerful, calm, and contemplative way.
“When we do things peacefully we open our souls to the wonderful presence of God.”
