I reflect on myself and everything going on in my life.
Silence is very peaceful to me. I don’t like a lot of noise. I love any nature sounds outside.
I love the sound of the ocean and the seagulls.
Not the answer one might expect, but the truth at the moment is, tinnitus caused from the medication that I have to take following the open-heart surgery. It is frustrating but at least I survived the surgery to have the problem. When I am experiencing it, I am putting on a book to listen too. It always seems to be at night.
The roar of Love.
Don, your answer is so much better than mine. Love it.

So today I woke up grateful and make me anticipate about the question of the day a lot of my mindfulness is based on the past impediment. what I can do to improve my situation is modeling myself after a copper water pot. But, if there has to be just one guru, and as The master Depok chopra says you are consciousnessmind use it to develop higher consciousness in my life. practical application not just in my mind but becoming my words and action.
I notice myself, the world around me and the moment I am living.
I notice where my mind goes. I can
see the loops that play over and over
in my head. The stories that I tell myself.
I can gauge the current state that I’m in,
by how difficult or easy it is to focus.
In the silence, my body speaks to me and tells me how tense I am and my monkey mind wants to chase its thoughts. As my dear 100 year old uncle says, “You suffer from analysis paralysis.” Meditation is always a challenge for me but so worth my time. It helps me hear and feel the calm that dwells at my core. I love today’s quote. It speaks a profound truth to me: “What you are, the world is. And without your transformation, there can be no transformation of the world.” It reminds me that I have to “Be still to know.” When will we ever learn the difference between revolution and evolution???
A calm that calls for more. I am not fearful of silence. It feels like home for me.
It does feel like home Yram. Thank you
What I notice in silence changes, the content arises and falls; happiness, the sensations of love, the beauty of what my senses rest upon and my thoughts//sensations/ emotions. pleasant and unpleasant coming and going. However, if I actively seek out silence, as in standing or walking in a blizzard, then I purposely look to feeling into the silence around me merging with the inner silence.
the simplicity of my breathe, In. Out. repeat. Connection to the Divine, my Life Source
The hum of Universal energy flowing through my body.
I notice that I am not really in silence. I hear the neighbor in the condo above, walking around, probably getting ready for the day. I hear the refrigerator humming and the clock ticking. I just heard the first birdsong of the morning in my backyard, even in the darkness. The bird and squirrel symphony will be expanded as the day moves forward.
In silence, I am alive…it is where I thrive. My home is in a wooded area, no close neighbors, no road noise….just the sounds of nature…in the night it is all dark- no lights, a dark sky in the forest…and I find myself so very grateful.
The absence of the cacophony of modern civilization. I live in a very quite and dark night area. The sounds of the earth and it’s non human occupants fill the silence.
