The Christ Mind that was in Jesus expressed life's goal in these words: "And now abide faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is Love."
Beyond human definitions of silence and love, there exists the realm of original Silence, Peace, and Love, where conflict and duality do not exist and where all are in Ultimate Union with the One. Here, no words need be spoken or thoughts responded to. Being in Absolute Love is to open oneself to Absolute Silence, Peace, Presence, or God.
In a world dominated with practical necessities, there can be nothing more practical than having a consciousness able to find an Absolute Silent Clarity of mind
--- so at Peace that it can see through worldly confusion and duality to know what is truly necessary in this world.
