Does silence play a part in your life? If your world is filled with constant noise, how can you really focus and energize the good stuff? If silence isn’t part of your environment, as a practice of sort, you are missing out on this instrumental tool, it empowers and manifests clarity to those who realize its gift. Whether you embrace silence spiritually, in a sacred space, to energize oneself or you sit silently to empower others through attentive listening skills, the presence of this stillness is profound. As cited by Mindvalley.com, Alfred Brendel, (an Australian musician, poet and artist) once said, “The word ‘listen’ has the same letters as the word ‘silent,’” used wisely and with the intent to instill or impart, this quietness manifests tranquility.
In this silent realm, you are able to embrace and align the wholeness of you, in full, mind, body and spirit.
During Deepak Chopra’s 21-days of Inspiration, he shared a quote by Paramahansa Yogananda, which I believe, makes for a beautiful affirmation. His words, “Today I will open the door of my calmness and let the footsteps of Silence gently enter all of my activities. I will perform all duties serenely, saturated with peace.”
May you find ways to thread stillness into the fibers of your being for this blanket nurtures and warms your spirit!
