The Drama of Silence

The Drama of Silence


The pause in time. 

It exists in every moment.

Many live with a lot of it.

Many live with little to none. 

Not all silence is created equal.

There is silence that exists on a car ride. 

There is silence in a heated argument with another.

There is silence in nature. 

There is silence in communication with others.

There is silence that exists between the pauses of words and phrases spoken by a good friend. A partner. A family member. A colleague. A lover.

There is silence that exists within both moments of certainty and uncertainty. 

Within the silence, I invite you to observe your thoughts.

I invite you to listen to your mind.

These words and associated meanings and feelings you have are an act of your own creation.

It is your deepest freedom.

Is your mind still? 

Is it hurried?

Is it worried? 

I wonder what language habits you can change to serve the feelings you desire.
