“Silence is deep as Eternity; speech is shallow as Time.”
When I get scared and I've been scared a lot lately and I'm full of anxiety, I sometimes feel compelled to fill the air with talk. I may be saying nothing of substance, but still, the noise is somehow comforting to me. It affirms that I’m here, that I’m active and alive.
The sound of the spoken word can be a wonderful tool for healing, yet I must learn to feel the value of silence. I can do this by surrounding myself with quiet, instead of the sound of my voice.
The older I get the more silence seems necessary if I am to listen carefully to the messages my soul is trying to send to my over active brain.
Cliches' become cliches because they are true--Silence is golden.
Question: When do you talk when silence is what is really be called for?
