Silence is the midwife of transcendence. When we eliminate the frenetic noise from our lives, we see the things that have always been there, only they’ve been cluttered up and obscured from our view. This is one of the reasons why monks are so dedicated to silence. Silence opens us up to the possibility of really paying attention and looking deeply into the nature of things. If your life feels flat, and lacking in meaning, try building more silence into your life.
THIS WEEK: Take a day this week dedicated to silence. No music, no podcasts, no TV, and limit your talking to what is essential. Pay attention to how this day differs in experience from others.
All the best,
Steve Lawson - Monk Manual Founder
