Dying Daily #240: Mindfulness and Silence

I wrote about silence a few weeks back.

I posted a bunch of quotes.

An increased desire for silence has affected my life in numerous ways.

If I am home alone, the TV is usually off.

I mentioned driving in silence.

I find fewer things worth having an opinion on. Even fewer worth talking about.

This isn’t just an external silence though, there is all kinds of noise in our modern world.

Without our thoughts about things, everything is pretty okay.

Take a few moments in silence and see what arises.

What things bother you?

What are the things that push you to fill in the silence?

What are you uncomfortable with?

These are the things can teach us the most, the places we can grow.

Fewer words and less noise is a good thing.

What keeps you from being able to tolerate silence?
