Is Silence a Way to Wisdom?
Date: 12/7/2019 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Tom Woodworth
Synopsis: Pythagoras, one of the best- known champions of silence, is thought to have said: “Silence is the first stone of the temple of wisdom. Listen and you will be wise; the beginning of wisdom is silence.” What happens in silence? Many argue that silence can invite reflection, contemplation, and discipline. Others say it is not important at all. Is cultivating silence a way to becoming wise? Join us to see how secrecy and silence play a big part in the masonic teaching.

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
Albert Einstien
