Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm
~ Depeche Mode ~ Enjoy The Silence ~
The beauty of Silence ... brought into our monkey minds, clarity arises. Perhaps a sense of being alive, perhaps a divine vision.
Silence ... tranquil wordlessness ...
In a world where noise pollution is so great, silence keeps one from going crazy. A break in the chaos of sound. A time where quiet and calm are welcomed, a time when a serene moment is available to collect your thoughts and regroup your senses, a time when a pause gives a noiseless second look at the blur of the world around you.
Although I have always understood the importance of communication .. the ability to talk, listen, explain and comprehend. I think there is also a real need to be quiet, because if we never rest our mouths, never retreat into silence, we can never coherently think. The constant attack of sound grates upon our subconscious, filling our minds with words & thoughts that may not be ours.
The precious moment of stillness, of pure serenity ... the break in the battle of words ... letting the numbness fill the room ... nothing is everything ... having the courage to put the world on pause and let the quiet stillness permeate our thoughts.
In bringing in silence, a sense of extraordinary is found within the ordinary, yet it remains unnoticed. Perhaps true wisdom is found in the silence underlying the words. In bringing in silence, judgement and comparison are absent and the appreciation of beauty inherent in all things is naturally realized. We may stumble upon the treasure we all seek ... if we let the silence do the talking.
