Like a smile can brighten our day, a happy “Hello!” can be a beautiful breeze that uplifts our spirits for a moment, a day, or lovingly linger for a lifetime. During holidays and any day, emotions can run high, and it’s ever-evident that the words we speak may be some of the greatest gifts that we give … and receive.
Some infinitely wise beings have given us glimpses into the power of learning without words. It is written, that Jesus spent forty days alone in the desert and received messages from God. Buddha is said to have attained enlightenment while meditating alone under a tree. Mohammed lived in a cave, where it is written that he received messages from the Angel Gabriel. And the spiritual teacher Sadhguru said, “If you have the opportunity to sit with a spiritual person, this is not the time for questions. Just be with them, and an exchange will occur.”
