Silence – Def: A period without any sound; complete quiet.
As I write this blog entry, I turned off streaming music. Ah, silence. I do not experience complete silence. I hear the sounds of the washing machine. I hear a bird singing outside my widow, and my stomach has an annoying habit of making a strange sound every now and then. Yet, in this atmosphere, my mind is free from external noise that interferes with my thinking. Thoughts now race across the movie screen of my mind. Were they always racing across my mind? I don’t know, but in silence, I can hear them. Periods of silence are a good thing. They allow us to come into contact with ourselves. Don’t fear meeting yourself, I have a hunch you may have a new BFF.
