The book Stillness Speaks is organized into ten chapters whose subjects range from "Beyond the Thinking Mind" to "Suffering and the End of Suffering". Each chapter is a mosaic of individual entries, concise and complete in themselves, but profoundly transformative when read as a whole. This book of course, uses words that in the act of reading become thoughts in your mind. But those are not ordinary thoughts - repetitive, noisy, self-serving, clamoring for attention. The book can be no less than awakening for readers willing to give the words a chance to work their quiet magic.
