Practice Daily Times of Silence.

Everyone should insist upon a quarter of an hour of absolute quiet every 24 hours. Go alone into the quietest place available to you and sit or lie down for 15 minutes. Do not talk to anyone. Do not write. Do not read. Think as little as possible. Throw your mind into neutral. Conceive of your mind as inactive. Begin to listen for the deeper sounds of harmony that are found in the essence of silence. Author Starr Daily once said, "No man or woman who knows how to practice silence and does it has ever become sick to my knowledge. I have noticed that my own afflictions come upon me when I do not balance expression with relaxation."
