all you need are seeds…

socio-political self-help and stuff

hush now

how often do you tune out and turn it all off? sometimes? often? does never sound more like it? in a time of  portable phones, social media, amongst other obligations – it seems that we are so distracted that finding and taking a few moments to go within is an impossibility. it’s like if we go too long without checking in, others may think we’ve checked out – so we stay connected. preventing the development of a deeper connection within.

a good way to re-connect with who you are is to take some time in silence. yep, shut the h-e- double hockey sticks up! unplug from it all. be still. hear that inner voice. that means no calls, check-ins, status updates, chit-chat – nothing that involves communication outside of yourself. because the body talks…

Silence Please (I Guess)

i’m not even going to pretend that it’s easy to be quiet. my first attempt involved me trying to interact with the world – using non-verbal cues. not realizing that my points and grunts meant that i was still talking. completely missing the point. but as i’ve traveled along this incredible spiritual journey, i’ve had the opportunity to absorb the importance of silence. and i do it frequently these days.

the thing about silence is all that you have to do is be it. and you can have it anywhere. say you’re a busy parent, shuttling children from activity to school to activity – carve out a few moments at the start or end of each day to completely disconnect from the world. or make silence a game with your children. you get what you need and they learn the practice from an early age. win – win.

another beautiful aspect of silence is that your time is what you choose to do with it – quietly, of course. have a bath. meditate. do absolutely nothing. but don’t forget to listen. to your body, your spirit, what-have-you. my silent moments are where i find incredible clarity and inspiration. you’ve really nothing to lose, how about treating yourself to some silence…
