There is a draw that is as deep as the call of the wild. Sounds of solitude, quiet, peace echo deep within a person’s heart. There is great treasure there, comfort, peace.
The constant barrage of traffic, TV, cell phones, music, constant stimulation all force quiet from the mind. The noise drives away peace like a drowning man gasping for life giving air, but only taking in a water death.
Sound gathers force, picks up momentum, and wisps its way past silence to leave us in a head pounding, over stimulation of constantly moving, changing, drowning noise.
Somewhere at the end of the noise is a place where silence welcomes one home, like a life long friend who’s always there with open arms, even when there’s no contact.
Silence gently beckons its lullaby of quiet tranquility and peaceful surrender as one by one cares and concerns begin to fall away. It levels off in quiet, and then, and really only then, can one truly begin to hear.
The mind detoxifies itself of stimulation, sound, chatter and stress’ ongoing static. Worries and troubles release like chaff and a gentle inner voice of calm peace makes harvest of the spirit.
Many can’t deal with the noise of silence. Silence forces us to stop and listen to what is real, for only in midst of silence can one truly hear.
May you be blessed with quiet, still moments, for it is then we can hear the most.
