Have you ever stopped and just listened? No, not listen to music. No, not listen to your friend tell you a story. No, not even listen to your parents talk to you. I mean, have you ever stopped and just listened to yourself?
Many people are afraid of silence, and sometimes for good reason. Sometimes it is very scary to really listen to what our mind and body have to tell us. It can be hard to sit in silence. A lot of people want to fill that silence with music or speech. I will admit that I would rather fill that silence with anything. Although it can be hard and scary, it can also be refreshing and enlightening. You never really know what you might have to say unless you try.
