God is the friend of silence. See how nature-trees, flowers, grass-grows in silence;
see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...
We need silence to touch souls.
The Buddha, the Godhead, resides quite as comfortably in the
circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as
he does at the top of a mountain or in the petals of a flower. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance pt1
