The Peace of Silence

6 posts in this topic

I was first introduced to this concept in Eckhart Tolle's book, "Stillness Speaks", in which he recommends listening to silence. 

I've found that listening to silence leads to peace and even joy.  If you haven't tried this before, I highly recommend it.  Just sit in a comfortable position (I sit in a chair), at a time when there is no noise in your immediate environment, and simply notice the silence around you.  Really pay attention to it.  After doing so for a few minutes, you will begin to experience deep peace.  Give it a try.  You won't be disappointed.

@Beginner Mind Don’t get stuck in ‘feeling good.’ Spirituality usually involves huge suffering, because growth requires suffering. Although enjoyable, I doubt this technique will actually grow you.

Oh I've had my fair share of suffering.  I'm much more interested in experiencing peace at this stage of my life.

Of course it will. Silence the mind and let God speak.


Loving a new world into being.

Energy healing, music making, tree hugging, sacred being.
