Silence is something everybody should experience every single day.
Real silence. Why? Because when you’re silent, you’re able to exceed your mind, your thoughts and your ego. In real silence there’s nothing more than just you. In real silence you’re finally able to listen to you. To listen to your true self. You are able to transcend. To travel, inside.
And going into silence isn’t only transcending your ego, it’s also escaping all the distraction we create for ourselves. All the distraction the world creates for us. You will feel free from every distraction.
And I can imagine that real silence can scare you a bit. Because what happens when it’s silent? What lies hidden beneath all the distraction we create for ourselves? Yes, our dreams and desires, but also our fears, our loneliness, our insecurities. Sometimes it’s easier to look away, to distract ourselves, to never really be silent. Because what happens if we look our fears, insecurities and loneliness in the eye? It hurts. Sometimes a little, sometimes big time. But after that, past our dark feelings, there is light, laughter, space.
I believe that if we dare to do this, being silent every single day, the greatest growth and happiness is found. Why? Silence is the portal to your inner world. And this is where your dreams, desires, and the true you are hidden.
And isn’t that what it’s all about in life? To discover the true you, to come as close to yourself as you can?
Every day when I go into silence, I feel so extremely close to myself. And it is in that silence that I can hear my soul. I can hear my desires, my dreams, I can here the true me talking. This gives me a feeling of being alive, being authentic, being connected. It is in that silence that I feel more connected than ever to everything around me. And I strongly believe that this feeling is what everybody should feel and experience every day.
It’s a feeling of transcending, of rising above the ego, above your head, it’s stepping out of hustle, business, craziness, stress, fear, anxiety… and landing into rest, peace, calmness, trust.
It’s a feeling of oneness.
And after you go into silence, the way you look at the world will change. You will experience a whole new world that was first hidden behind the hustle, the noise and the distraction you created for yourself.
The colors will look different, more bright. And all of a sudden, you will see trees, nature, animals and people as the beautiful creatures they are, all connected to you.
You will finally feel: life is a miracle, nature is, we are.
