We must let silence exist.
If for no other reason, that is why you meditate and unplug and walk away and be still, to embrace silence. As a medicine, as a teacher, as a friend. Whatever it is, it is crucial that we create spaces and times of silence.
“Silence is becoming extinct,” according to Gordon Hempton in his essay, Learning To Listen, “there are 14 places left on the planet where you can experience no outside noise pollution for at least 15 minutes.”
DO what you can to keep silence alive. Silence is true vulnerability. Silence is the essence of peace.
Let silence exist and it will feed you. I promise, it will feed you.
