Silence helps to get in touch with one's own pure, perfect self. When we take time and spend it in silence, we are able to get in touch with our pure, perfect self. It helps us to go within and recognize our inner own inner truth. It is not just to stay within but to recognize one's own inner worth and deal with the world with it. Even during the worst situations, we need to take time to be in silence, become introverted and look within ourselves and see our own inner worth. We will then naturally be able to maintain our self-respect. This enables us to be stable and happy, whatever the situation might be.
