Have you ever thought how funny it is that we are almost programmed to feel uncomfortable about silence? We often feel compelled to fill pauses in our conversations and to fill our spaces with music and noise.
Why is this?
One reason is that silence has power. Silence speaks to us with a voice that has an authority far greater than our own or of other people. It cuts through the surface level distractions of our everyday lives, mobiles/TVs/Radios, peels back the layers of protection we have created and reveals truths about who we really are.
Silence is actually our inspiration. Silence is our guide. How many of you have come up with great ideas whilst lying in the bath or just before you get up in the morning? Many of the great inventors of our time would contemplate in silence in order to tap into their creativity.
Let’s make time for silence every day.
