A long time ago, I had a poster that read "the deepest thoughts come in silence". For many years since, I've grown accustomed to the stillness of the morn. It's a time of personal introspection. Usually I walk and and let my thoughts flow freely. It's a time to reconnect with myself and commune with nature.
There's all kinds of noise that fills our lives today: sirens, the congestion of traffic, blaring radios, iPhones, iPods, and Droids. There simply is not enough silence. We all need time to reflect and simply contemplate our lives and the direction we are headed. We need time to simply enjoy being and breathing.
For centuries before us, men have sought and found silence. This is not about religion. We need to untether our souls and free it from the mundane cares of every day existence. As we breathe and take in the silence we renew our connection with the universe and the energy that surrounds us. A moment of absolute silence would do all us all good. Listen to the sound of silence.
