The quiet can be so loud.
So many of us are constantly bombarded with sound. Whether it’s from our phones, our televisions or the radio, there always seems to be some kind of audio output being processed by our eardrums.
But what if we were to take all of that sound away?
What if we were to embrace the quiet? See it as a friend, rather than a foe?
During one session last week, A, one of Brian’s friends had a rather interesting take on why the quiet makes people uneasy.
THERE IS NOWHERE TO HIDE FROM THE QUIET. WE ARE CORNERED TO FACE OUR THOUGHTS. THE PROSPECT OF THAT SCARES PEOPLE. THE MORE PRESENCE OF QUIET MAKES SOME FEEL LIKE SUFFOCATING TO AN EXTREME. IT IS KIND OF FUNNY TO ME THOUGH. THE QUIET IS PEACEFUL IN SO MANY WAYS. YOU CAN BE ONE WITH YOUR MIND AND BODY. THE SILENCE ALLOWS FOR DEEP THINKING. SOME OF MY REALLY SPECIAL THOUGHTS IN GENERAL HAVE COME WHILE I’VE BEEN IN TOTAL SILENCE. YOU SHOULD TRY TO THINK IN SILENCE. IT WILL ALTER YOUR THINKING COMPLETELY.
