Seek Silence

Brent BaldwinShutting down the din, the noise, and the dissonance seems to be more and more difficult. Indeed life has become very noisy.  

Finding a rare moment of quiet is typically elusive for most of us as we marathon through our day, trying to keep pace with the pack.

 

Just outside our window noise pollution permeates the world with the drone of traffic, a sirens wail, or the rumble of a bus, truck, or train. All adding to the cacophony. Inside there is a constant hum that punctuates our every move, phones ringing, far off voices, HVAC systems.

The sound of stress is in the air.

It is so much a part of our life that in the main we don’t consciously hear it. Subliminal noises play like the score to a bad movie; punctuating every moment, building note by note, yet shut out and inaudible.

Regardless of our consciousness, the sounds of daily life impact our focus and our effectiveness. We can’t stop it, but we can orchestrate a strategy to find and embrace silence on our terms.

Silence is always available

But not always accessible. Practicing silence like any other discipline requires practice and mindfulness. It is like any muscle in your body, left to its devices, without regular use and systematic exercise will atrophy

Self-orchestrate intentional moments of silence.

Moments set aside with purpose and experienced, breath by breath.

Silence has incredible restorative powers. It is a prelude to peace and often the gateway to elusive answers and understanding.

Your only investment is time. The ability to experience and the power of silence indwell in each of us. It’s not magical or available only to a select few; the only requirement is your intention.
