The Sound of Silence

My natural self is being my chirpy best and it’s needless to say that Silence creeps me out. For me silence was always interpreted as emptiness, a hollowness and fear of the unknown. Silence is a powerful force. By its nature it builds anticipation, and that can be where the stress comes from. But what is life if you don’t learn a few things and unlearn many more.  It’s liberating to understand a fresh new perspective and sometimes quiet challenging.

Life actually teaches you a lot, but in silence. No one knows what you are learning and that indeed is magical. There is a wisdom that Silence brings.

“Fear less, hope more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Hate less, love more; And all good things are yours.” ~ Swedish proverb

Silence is a precious gift. In that space between our words, it’s where we find ourselves. When the mind is quiet, when there are no thoughts and no words to be said, we can hear our own heart talking to us. We can hear our own soul and our own intuition.

“It has been said that it’s the space between the bars that holds the tiger. And it’s the silence between the notes that makes the music. It is out of the silence, or “the gap,” or that space between our thoughts, that everything is created including our own bliss.” –  Wayne Dyer

The problem lies in accepting Silence. Probably the reason why there is so much stress and clutter in our minds is that we haven’t yet learned how to quiet our minds and embrace silence. We haven’t yet learned to appreciate and see the value and the wisdom that comes from being quiet.

“What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 A lot of times we just talk and talk but without actually saying anything. Maybe it’s because we want to feel that we’re heard and that people acknowledge our presence and existence. But is that really the way to go about it? I wonder if it be wiser to talk less and say more while at the same time immersing ourselves in those moments of silence and allowing them to just be?

I have always found silence to be an uncomfortable form of awkwardness. Instead, I yearn to hear the sound of silence. It is beautiful to understand someone else’s silence. Silence can be a very powerful way to “be” with another person, especially when they are troubled. It can communicate acceptance of the other person as they are as of a given moment, and particularly when they have strong feelings like sorrow, fear or anger.

“Listen and Silent are spelled with the same letters. Think about it”

So clearly this post has no reference to fashion, style , beauty what so ever but sometimes its essential to pen down a piece of your mind. Nevertheless,

Stay Stylish, Stay You
