Silence is the relative or total lack of audible sound. By analogy, the word silence may also refer to any absence of communication, even in media other than speech. Silence is also used as total communication, in reference to non verbal communication and spiritual connection. Silence is also referred to no sounds uttered by anybody in a room and or area. Silence is a very important factor in many cultural spectacles, as in rituals.
The easiest way to get touch with this universal power is through silent Prayer. ... Perfect prayer does not consist in many words, silent remembering and pure intention raises the heart to that supreme Power. Shut your eyes, shut your mouth, and open your heart. This is the golden rule of prayer. Prayer should be soundless words coming forth from the centre of your heart filled with love. ..
"Silence" in spirituality is often used as a metaphor for inner stillness. A silent mind, freed from the onslaught of thoughts and thought patterns, is both a goal and an important step in spiritual development. Such "inner silence" is not about the absence of sound; instead, it is understood to bring one in contact with the divine, the ultimate reality, or one's own true self, one's divine nature

Bonjour, cher Georgios,
La méditation consiste à être conscient de chaque pensée, de chaque sentiment; à ne jamais les juger en bien ou en mal, mais à les observer et à se mouvoir avec eux. En cet état d'observation, on commence à comprendre tout le mouvement du penser et du sentir. De cette lucidité naît le silence.
Très belle composition.

Une superbe composition. Le plan d'eau est un miroir parfait et fait ressortir encore plus la beauté de la maison dans son environnement naturel.

Bellisima composition of this quiet and charming corner, the situation of the house certainly is privileged with the terrace overlooking the pond and the beautiful environment, the reflections are delicious, as well as beautiful range of colors in these beautiful tones.
Very good management of the brightness and sharpness for recreation in the beautiful work.
Have a great evening.

πολύ όμορφη εικόνα! Η ομορφιά του τοπίου σε κάνει να νιώθεις πληρότητα και σεβασμό, ο τίτλος και το σημείωμά σου ταιρίαζουν πολύ. Εξαιρετικό φως και χρώματα τονίζουν τη γαλήνια ατμόσφαιρα. Πολύ εντυπωσιακές οι αντανακλάσεις, διπλασιάζουν την οπτική απόλαυση και χαρίζουν φως σε όλη την εικόνα. Μπράβο και ευχαριστώ!

Hello Georgios. December. Lots of greenery, blue skies, wonderful light. A sight almost like summer. And indeed, everything seems very quiet and contemplative. I look at the photo with pleasure. Rgds, Wolfgang.
