The Soothing Sound of Silence

Noise. We are surrounded by it more than we know. Whether it’s the television, our phones or airplanes overhead, we are subjected to a great deal of sound every day.

SilenceSilence is very rare indeed. Yet it is in the silent inward gaze that we gain the most power for ourselves. It is not in the distractions of every day life that we find what we are looking for. It is within.

A wise friend of mine once said much can be said in silence. And I have a few special friends that enjoy that silence with me. Nothing must be spoken outloud because we already share a knowingness. It is simply there.

And that is extremely comforting because some things are beyond words, beyond our comprehension, beyond our understanding of reality.

Invite some silence into your day and see what you experience. You might surprised at what you find lurking just beneath the surface, waiting to be heard in the soundless space of your heart.
