Embrace Silence

We live in a noisy world – television, music, airplanes, sirens, construction equipment, trucks, leaf and snow blowers and tree cutters. The car radio must always be on when we drive. Whenever there is a moment of quiet in a conversation, we chatter meaninglessly.

There is a moment of silence between your thoughts that you can become aware of with practice. In this silent space, you can find the quiet peace that you crave in your daily life. You’ll never know that peace if you have no spaces between your thoughts.

Demand more time for silence in your life. Make meditation a daily practice. Don’t worry about doing it right or wrong, simply do it. There are many opportunities to access silence; use them.

Your sense of peace will bring others into harmony with you.
