Noise & Silence

The mind is full of noise.

The more you talk,

the less you hear.

When the opportunity arises,

be silent.

Sit quietly with yourself.

Stop seeking.

Stop reaching for things.

Listen closely,

and you will find your answers buried beneath your questions.

Throughout our busy lives, many of us rarely take the time to reflect. We underestimate the value of doing so and proclaim, “there’s no use worrying about the past, it’s over”. Even when our mouths aren’t moving, our minds are racing with thoughts. The universe is always sending us messages, really. They come in the form of new ideas, songs, poems, great works of art…masterpieces. The problem is that most of us aren’t prepared to hear them. Next time you feel lost, put down the phone, turn off the TV, and think about yourself. What is silence trying to tell you? Don’t talk your life away.
