God Usually Speaks in a Whisper, so Stillness is Required to Hear — A Quote from François Fénelon in “Talking with God”

“God does not cease to speak, but the noise of the world outside us, and the noise of our passions within, prevent our hearing him. We must silence every creature, including self, that we may perceive the ineffable voice of the Bridegroom in the deep stillness of the soul. We must lend an attentive ear, for his voice is soft and still, and is heard only by those who hear nothing else.”

— François Fénelon, “Talking with God” (Translated by Hal M. Helms), p 56
