In a world of information, noise and overdrive it can be hard to remember what it was like when life was a quieter place.
“I think 99 times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me.” – Albert Einstein
As Einstein indicates, we can discover rare treasures in the space of silence. The trick is however, allowing yourself to indulge in the art of a quieter mind by choice.
Imagine an hour, a day, or even a week, where the messages on your phone, the news updates and notifications from social media platforms and work emails were a faint whisper in comparison to the strong sense of peace and silence that engulfed your body and mind.
What would that be like?
What would that create in your mind and body?
Some of our world’s most dynamic leaders, entrepreneurs and even creatives have often spoken about the incredible power of obtaining inner silence even while working and conducting our daily lives. Yet, we often push this to the back of our to-do list, or even worst, put it on our bucket list as though it’s something we can only experience once in a lifetime!
Silence is one of the rare commodities that we can still enjoy and indulge in without having to do much other than let go, and receive the stillness in all things.
A detox from the noise of daily life can seem impossible until you choose it.
In the same way that an entire day free from electronic sounds or even music, can be soothing to the soul in glorious and unexpected ways.
Is it time to nurture yourself and take a breather? Not because the noise or the hustle and bustle of daily life is bad or negative, but just because you can. Would you allow yourself that luxury for even an hour or more?
Silence will always give you the awareness in life that you’re unwilling to receive while you’re thinking. If you allow the contribution of silence you will achieve awareness of things you cannot receive any other way.
Is the space of silence just what you and your body have been asking for?
Try the castle. A place of silence.
