Silence is misinterpreted by the ego. Wanting to know, it will draw its own conclusions, which are always limiting, no matter what they speak about.
When presented with silence, it is time to focus on the inside, on your own Self and release any inflicted “silences”, any disconnections. It is time to recognize beliefs and fears specifically and accept them, for they are a part of who you are. It is the way that you may once again embrace all, through Your knowing and your acceptance.But it is not theoretical, nor can you logically accomplish this. It has to be practical, experiential. You need to sit down with yourself and write down everything, so that your ego will obey Your Will, will not roam around or make up another virtual reality against You.
If you do this in pure honesty with your Self, you will receive the insights as well as the way to release, embrace and expand, connecting energetically to all, no matter what the appearances in linear timing. That is how you are able to re-evaluate, re-focus and re-center yourself. That is how you allow the continuation of the flow of creation to take its course, that it may present you with that, which is your highest Will and Truth.
Because no matter what happens on the outside, it's the inner noise that's hurting you, contracting you and preventing you from connecting, expanding and giving.
