My Life – Above Ground


The Silence is Deafening

Let’s face it… our world is LOUD!  It’s non-stop.  It’s ‘always-connected.’  It’s everyone.  Everywhere.  In your face.  From the moment we wake up, to those last few moments before drifting off.

Don’t you wish it would all just stop?  Just for a second? 

Is it any wonder why we are all so uncomfortable with it?  We yurn for it, but really – even the shortest moment of silence makes the vast majority of us uneasy.  We have to SAY something… we have to DO something.  

Think about it – when you’re in a group, or just you and one other person for that matter… just sitting still and not talking… not doing anything… it’s uncomfortable, huh?  But it’s something that we need so badly.

Try it.  When you’re next by yourself.  Sit still.  Be quite.  And think.  Ponder.  Think about the your life.  Your friends.  Your family. 

Then try it when you’re next with someone or even a group.  Suggest that you all take some time to think.  Don’t talk.  Don’t DO anything.  Sit still and think. 

Like I’ve experienced, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the results.
