It is poetic expression of your tender heart SS ---!!!
Trees, flowers, grass etc; grows in all condition---!!!
But they express all its feelings loudly with beautiful silence---!!!
They laugh when it rains and weeps without water---!!!
Express anger and suffers with drying in hot summer Sun ---!!!

So also stars ,moon and Sun moves with Silence among rhythmic sound of Universe---!!!They sparkle with kindness during nights and energies everything during days----But with deepest Silence ---!!!
Silence is more powerful way of arguments between two individuals.
At the end of argument, they rejoin with happiness again with Silence.

The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention.... A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.

..there are some pleasing sounds of nature too.
Such as sound of river flowing esp at a waterfall, sea shore/beach sounds of the waves, birds singing, rain sounds, ..also able to touch souls, rather deeply.

Silence is golden and may be most virtuous ... but we need to realize what it means and, with whom and; at what juncture ... perhaps! no ? some times ... chirping of birds, sound of a stream and MUSIC can be equally touching !

Hi Shintz yes it is true,silence is required to touch Souls.Silence in true sence does not mean not talking to each other,Silence as I felt was Opposite of being Noisy which means not disciplined or organised.Things can get organised only if it is planned in disciplined manner with required Silence. Silence is opposite of yelling.Anyone yelling is not accepted anywhere. Silence is opposite of shouting. Public speaches are spoken loudly on loudspeakers which create sound pollution. So also mostly slogans are said creating disturbance to others. If the public speach and slogans are said in a more smooth way people will able to understand it more better. Hence people ignore it as they dont understand it as they dont hear it ,well. Silence is opposite of Violence because violence is connected with cries,torture and death.Ofcouse,sound of flowing rivers and sound of rolling waves is enjoyable ,But roaring waves and flooded rivers is horryfying.Birds do chirp, but only in the evenings when ...more

`Silence` - the need of the man irrespective of his religion, caste, creed or place of living. Frankly speaking, it has never before occurred to me to ask myself why I am in need of silence surrounding. I have always wanted to have mental peace, to do well, and it was not just empty sentimentality. I have found that the world is full of masks only, rather than what we always wish it is full of joy. Seems chaotic of all aspects is the only pit we have before us to jump in. There are very few among us who do know the value of silence in the life. Certainly we need silence to be able to touch souls and to be in silence, in the highest sense, is essential. Thinking in silence controls the rage and in turn helps nurturing something vital for a man to have the atmosphere singing a harmonious melody. Silence is certainly not an escapism from reality or not living in isolation, not shedding away responsibilities; but on the contrary silence is important to find out why we have never asked ours ...more

Yes very true.but before that we need a soothing sound to wakeup and pacify the souls.silence teaches us so many things in our life.it helps us to know the merits and demerits of violence and to recognise ourselves.
