In Silence We Find Our Genius

There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.
-Minnie Aumonier

When our hearts are calm and silent,

  • We see things clearly.
  • We build strength.
  • We are in tune to unlimited creativity.
  • Our intelligence sours.
  • Nothing can disturb or interrupt us.
  • We are unstoppable.

It is in moments of clear, focused silence, that we can identify with and cooperate with God, and therefore, gain access to God’s unlimited supply of inspiration and creative power.

About the author


I am Danny Kohn, writer and designer for this site and owner, software engineer and consultant for Inspirations Software Design. My three greatest passions in life are sharing time with my family, software design and sharing inspiration with others. I have the incredible privilege of being able to spend a significant amount of time every day doing each of those three things. I am a single father of Tristen, our 6 year old son. It has been such an incredible joy to watch him grow up and learn so much. Everything he does and says overwhelms me with adoration. We have a wonderful evening ritual of reading books together in a beanbag chair. Nearly every night, we have a laughing attack together. I smile and giggle constantly in his presence and feel truly inspired.
