The power of silence


Introversion, inner contemplation, leads to a calm response.

Buddhist Monk, sitting by a river.  Pouring a water from a height and sitting in contemplation.

The power of silence. The power of solitude. The power of solution. Solutions can only be found when the mind is silent and ready to hear and see the answer. When we force an answer, that answer will always be wrong, because it is forced.

The power of silence and solitude leads to solutions. A quiet mind can hear the voice of the Universe, God and even your inner voice. A cluttered mind can’t hear, it can’t reason, and it can’t think. That is why silence, peace and solitude are necessary. Slow, patient and deliberate contemplation is required. Not a hurried, reactive, response. Quiet, silence, deliberate and slow thinking is required for finding the best solutions. When you make a good a decision, it leads a happy and peaceful life and no repercussion. But a rushed decisions always leads to more corrections and more stress. So take it slowly, quietly, peacefully, in silence and solitude.

  1. I know I’ve told you about the chapel hour I spend each week at church in silence. It’s a great way to spend an hour contemplating God. At the very least, if there are any old ladies there they will make sure you stay silent 😑.

  2. I love this. Silence became very profound last year, at the start of the pandemic. I wrote a few poems about the lessons learned in the silence. I will spend a lifetime learning, I am sure. We spoke about this topic today in the writing workshop I help teach.

  3. I absolutely loved this post!!! Truly. Every single line you wrote and the quote itself. Any rushed forced choice or decision is a recipe for future suffering big or small. It is this lifetime’s work to cultivate our relation to our inner guidance to become skilled at listening and following it. Again I loved reading your post multiple times, it is perfect :)))
