We are deluged with the sounds of modern life. Television series, movie entertainment, radio talk shows, cell phone conversation, and the multi-faceted cacophony of urban streets all combine to invade our physical and psychological space. Is it any wonder we are frequently exhausted by day’s end?
The antidotes are stillness and silence. Turning off our entertainment media and seeking an oasis of quiet in our homes or nature, we are free to sit in stillness and absorb the silence. When practiced diligently, we are gradually able to discern an energy within the silent stillness that calms our spirit and brings equanimity into our daily lives. We are empowered and ready to take up the challenges of daily life with new energy.
