There is a temporary silence in the space between your thoughts that you can become aware of with practice. In this silent space, you will find the peace that you always crave in your daily life. You will never know that peace if you have no spaces between your thoughts. The average person is said to have 60,000 separate thoughts every day. With so many thoughts, there are almost no gaps. So if you could reduce that number by half, you would open up entire world of possibilities for yourself. For it is when you merge into the silence and become one with it that you reconnect to your source and know the peacefulness that some call God. “be still and know that I am God”, was said beautifully in the psalms of the old testament. But the key words are still and know.
Still refers to silence, see how nature – trees, grass, grow in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence and they are all serving their purpose… that’s why we all need silence to be able to touch souls, this include your soul. Know, refers to making your personal and conscious contact with God. To know God is to banish doubt and become independent of others’ definition and description of God.
It’s really the space between the notes that makes the music you enjoy so much. without the spaces, all you would have is one continuous noisy note. everything that’s created comes out of silence. your thoughts emerge from the nothingness of silence. your words come out of this void. your essence emerged from emptiness. those who will supersede us are waiting in the vast void. all creativity requires some stillness. your sense of inner peace depends on spending some of your life energy in silence to recharge your battery, remove tension and anxiety, reacquaint you with the joy of knowing God and feel closer to all of humanity. – Wayne W. Dyer
At times I just choose to be alone in a still ambience and I try to create that time for myself every day, the purpose is to still my body and the only thing moving will be my thoughts, I seize that short moment to connect with my soul and listen to the voice of my innate God; How sweet that is. Even if am with people I have my own style of giving myself that 2-3 minutes’ of silence, and I always listen more than I speak in order to learn and study people.
Loneliness brings about creativity but some finds it difficult to achieve and mistake it with boredom, and that happens because they lack inner resources or they are yet to discover their gifts in life. Being alone in silence reduces fatigue and allows you to experience your own creative juices.
When you create time to be still and know, you will know that you are also god in your own right and you will still be the master of your own destiny, you will find inspiration and motivation that you need to achieve your goals and be successful; also you will discover a life worth living…
