“Stay in your body. The silence is in your body. It’s not out there. It’s in your body. Stay in your body, and you’ll be surprised what happens. To really become immersed in the silence, you need to free your body – purify your body of the past. Only then will there be silence. And that silence is overwhelming, it’s indescribably beautiful. You don’t come in and out of it – it’s always there. It’s all one. There’s no two. It’s all one.”

– Linda Clair
