Silence

Silence.
So much more than not speaking.
Everything is transformed.
Every action becomes deliberate.
Every taste becomes magnified.
Every thought becomes cherished.

To be fully consumed by what you are doing.
One experience at a time.
To slow down.
Life isn’t about quantity but quality.

Sit
Breath
Chew
Reflect
Drink
Pray

Be totally involved in what you are doing.
Don’t spread yourself thinly between experiences.
Pick one.

there is silence in which i try to open my self to God's heartbeat; then there is the silence, not of God but of the door slammed shut between two souls. utterly different silences

Anonymous because today i am feeling cowardly

Nice. And so true. Oh, for some silence today! The kids are off at school, so today that is possible. I will relish something today.
