Finding time for Silence

Image

If you are like me (which is a scary thought) then you probably find yourself running from one commitment to another, sprinkling in just enough mindless social media, hobby participation, and sleep to reach the allotted 24 hours of a day. What is often missing is silence.

Regularly as I drive, prepare for the day, and even engage downtime I am listening to audio books, music, or caring for needed phone conversations. In fact, silence at most comes in 5 minute increments. So, it is no surprise that I find myself with an overstuffed brain as I prepare to down-shift.

For much of the world, this is the Holy Week. Celebration of Passover for Jews and the Death and Resurrection of Jesus for Christians (and frankly life in general for others) necessitate that we force a stop of the busyness that runs our lives and slow down enough to examine our beliefs, values, celebrations, faith, inner-nature, etc.

This weekend, please – stop, breathe, examine. You will understand who you are better when you do!
