    It Brings Me Back To Myself

      I have never forgotten one of the experience when I was a child and my parents would say bad things about me again. I could not understand the reason to live and why I had to exist in this world. I remember running out of the house and looking for a place to cry, close to a...

    ...............

         With all the thoughts, ideas and dreams that run through my head I never seem to ever want to speak about most of them. I like being the quiet one, the one out of the spotlight. I usually try to speak less while saying more, which just leaves me sounding cryptic and...

    In Silence Is Where My Heart Speaks

    A month of exile away from stress with a stress I faced with was actually an opportunity for me to find my inner peace. The solitude I always wanted. Though I kinda discover a lot of things about myself, my co-workers, and about life... At least I can say that I have found few...

    Oh, The Noise

    I often find that I can't be around groups of women. No offense, ladies. It's just that usually when 3+ girls get together, they talk over eachother. It's overwhelming. I get dizzy trying to follow what everyone's saying while trying to put my two cents in while trying not to...

    How To Be A Hero

    Be ever ready to be private of Aura, such is spiritual honesty. Unlike human honesty, which you should never abandon. Silence of the Spirit is Unique in that it is simply, disappearance. When they came I wasn't there No one came just a story

    Stability

    The more I am silent, the more clarity I seem to gain. To the point, where I start to be silent from everything. The silence of the eyes from things to see, the silence of the skin for things to touch, the silence of the nose from things to smell, the silence from the mouth from...

    Mother Teresa

     “We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls...

    I Hate Sounds

    Some people leave a trail of noise behind them. I never understood it. It's like they don't feel siginficant unless everyone knows they're there and what's going on all the time. I was never like that. I like things quiet and mellow.

    Silence is a private moment.

    A moment that most find difficult. To me, silence is a holiday from noise. A short stay in my own mind, the world around me dissolving for a heartbeat. All worries melting away, just my own sensation of being and my surroundings holding my attention. It is beautiful. It is...

    Every Morning

    I spend an hour and a half to two hours cleaning stalls and doing horse chores. It's a peaceful and quiet morning- there is only the horses happily munching hay and the occasional breeze bringing soft cold flurries of snow. It's on these cold winter mornings during the silence...

    Some of the best moments in life happen in

    silence. I don't know what it is about cuddly someone and holding them and just not talking that I find so comforting.. But I do. It's like silent serenity. <3

    A Time And A Place For Everything ...

    I have noticed that so many people will walk into work or wake up in the morning, or go into their house and one of the first things they do is turn on something like a tv or stereo. Actually what I noticed is that I don't. When I'm alone, I can wake up and go about my business...

    We have a lot of silence here. It's very loud. Unfortunately, it's also speaking a foreign tongue so I don't often know what it's saying.
