Feeling Frustrated? Listen to the silence

Shhh.

How to find silence in a world so full of noise

My 12 year old son recently said to me ‘Mum one of my favourite times in the school day is when I go to the toilets as it’s always so peaceful and quiet’ He’s got a lot going on in his head, school is busy and he’s finding his way with all the homework.  I’ve shared with him ways he can create some space in his head in class too, instead of rushing to the loo!
If you have questions that you’d like answered, worries on your mind, need clarity, greater focus  – why not allow silence to guide you?

Listen to the sound of silence

When was the last time you listened to the sound of silence?

Why not pause and notice the softness and stillness of the space you are in right now.

At anytime during the day you can ease into this.

Pause, breathe, gradually quieten your mind and body and give your soul some peace and quiet to allow the silence to ‘source’ creative solutions to the frustrations in your life.

But there is so much noise everywhere

Yes there are noises, and there is silence and stillness from where they came. Be curious, playful and explore the silence all around you in the many layers it presents to you. Listen to the birds and notice the silence in between their songs and become aware of the silence from where the sounds come from.

Is their enlightenment in silence?

Notice the silence now. How often can you become aware of it today?
If you have ‘things’ on your mind and questions you’d like answers too, ask them and in the silence let the answers arrive when they are ready to. You may find enlightenment.
