In silence I can focus more and connect with God. I like solitude , being silent brings me joy and peace of mind
In silence I notice the mind and body relaxing.
The ringing in my right ear. Good for focusing on in meditation.
Silence is my greatest joy. Peace, solitude, deep reflection, revelation, rest, recoup of energy, return to Spirit and self.
It is a disengagement from bodily senses. It follows stillness. It is something that I “turn” towards in a conscious way. It is ever present. As I face silence, there is a dissolution. It is delightful.
I am not good at silence! Not that I talk a lot but I seem to fill every second of my day with “busyness”. If I am prompted to be still and experience silence, I often tend to fill it with my thoughts, but there are rare times when I can just “be” and then I notice little things – I can hear there is no true silence but I can enjoy hearing the birds, the sound of the waves on the beach (a mile off), the wind, a ticking clock, my heart beat…Things seem to slow down and sometimes it is hard to bring myself back to the world again. Do I feel better for it? Not sure! I personally feel better after a brisk walk in nature, (when there may well be silence but I am not listening out for it). I will try to be more noticing.
In silence – or in quiet (which is more available to me) I can think clearly and pray deeply. Sometimes at-onement happens.
And I realize I don’t have enough of it.
Since my retirement a few months ago, I am becoming more comfortable with silence (and rest). I will often lie in bed early in the morning and just “be.” It is more comforting than I could ever have imagined when I was still working.
Yes, isn’t it amazing! Most productive when not
When I lie or sit still for my quiet time, generally all I hear is traffic noise as I live on a busy street that is only carless in the middle of the night. When I sit quietly in the park I hear the birds and the wind in the trees. There is no such thing as absolute quiet where I live. I am thinking of getting noise cancelling headphones and wear them for my quiet time.
Silence is rarely truly silent thanks to thoughts. Sometimes I am at peace with the silence, sometimes I am at peace with my thoughts. Ananda or bliss is about finding peace and joy with in and without this silence and that is what I strive for on a moment to moment basis.
Silence is golden but listening to the silence is where enlightenment rests
The lush sound of the song birds outside.
Spaciousness. the beating of my heart. everything that is enough.
