Silence

I’ve become more and more aware of the beauty and joy of silence. It is in the pure silence that I have experienced such utter peace or what I sense peace feels like. The silence of no negative self talk or the pesky gremlin questioning my choices or the old, old, old voice almost feels like from another life (call me woo woo if you like) that likes to make me wrong about a lot of things. I don’t think I am alone in this way or somehow especially special. I do know that for as long as I can remember, I’ve been on an introspective discovery of living. When my friends were reading or rather not reading in high school, I was reading M. Scott Peck’s, The Road Less Traveled. I got heckled about my “self-help” interests but I was seeking understanding. Whatever that looks like at 16 years of age. Now I am beginning to understand that my mind will never stop desiring to understand. What I was seeking (and often still do) through the understanding, is peace. And I’m learning more and more each day that peace is in my heart and the way to my heart often is silence. When there’s no words needed to fill a moment just the experience. When the voices I mentioned above are on hiatus. When I’m observing myself in neutrality (yes, that is possible). That silence is perfection and it provides a direct access to my heart in the purest state.

For your consideration…
