Thought of the Day: April 11, 2018 – Guidance in Silence
Have you ever spent a day or two in complete silence? No phone, television, music, audio programming or conversations to listen to or be a part of?
I know it sounds far-fetched to turn off all audio communication for a day or two. But is that not what most of us hope to accomplish when we go on vacation?
We want to get away from work, stress, technology and people who are not serving us in a positive way.
We are hoping to have new experiences, read a good book, relax the mind and rejuvenate.
There is so much noise from the moment you and I wake up to the moment we go to sleep. Everything is fighting for our attention.
I understand that today, more than ever, we are a globally connected community.
But would it be of value to your health, state of mind, family, work and soul to unplug from the world, just once a month? (For some of us the more we unplug the better.)
I believe this is one of the reasons many people around the world meditate, go out into nature and have quiet time. I believe they are looking to reconnect to something inside them that they have forgotten.
As the saying goes, Silence is Golden.
