What is it, silence? Some say it’s elusive. I suffer from tinnitus, 24-7/365. Even when I sit in silence it isn’t actually “silent”. Then there’s the constant chatter-static of the mind. All the more reason to breathe, acknowledge and let it go. Most everyone suffers to one degree or another from the lack of space for silence in our post-post modern world.
And yet, we can encounter silence. Certainly that is what this 365 day practice is about for me.
Some say silence is prayer. Some say silence is where poetry is born even that silence is a poetry itself. I think it both are true and especially as they happen in the same moment of awareness.
