No need to fill the air with empty pleasantries with me. Sitting together in quiet and sharing quiet is precious. too often we speak merely as a means of controlling our experience. Those who like to talk often have not spent any time learning to listen, not to others, and especially not to themselves.
Silence speaks louder than a volcano erupting … when we understand how to go inside and listen. When we build enough connection inside with our own personal language of silence … then our words carry a different meaning behind them. This is often missed by those who do not understand silence and have not spent any real time listening to silence. Feeling the spaces we can create with silence and how our minds seek to hijack this space because it is inevitably a space of vulnerability. This space which is a threat to the controlled programming of the limited ego mind space – our monkey mind – requires repeated disciplined engagement in order to still the monkey mind and step through the illusions of its programming. If we are rushing from one meeting to the next, from one job to the next how do we let ourselves feel the spaces we hold inside our minds? Inside our hearts? Where is our silence in the moment? What does it feel like? That space inside? What is your language within?
