Silence - the absence of sound, being still... so still that even the mind quiets, the endless chatter softens and settles. It's something most of us long for more of. We all want, as our parents used to say, "Peace and quiet." Ah, now we get it. When we find that moment of silence we can pay attention to things like breathing. Are we really filling our lungs, or is our breath shallow and intermittent? Are we on the path we really desire? Is this truly what we want from life, or is there more to enjoy and experience? Silence offers us the space to dream and drift into another realm outside of our reality.
