The journey of soul searching and self discovery is a path that has no end, it’s limitless. Want to know a secret? It’s my favorite journey. I enjoy being silent and feeling the messages from the most inner depths of me.
I am by no means perfect at this, however, I have noticed that I as I become more aware, and more comfortable with silence I am able to reach this state with a tad more ease as opposed to a year ago. It’s quite the amazing feeling when I am able to be completely vulnerable with myself, knowing that there is no judgment being placed and I am able open my mind to things that otherwise I would have never been open to.
If I could stay in the state of silence and contemplation I would, but that isn’t possible in this lifetime. Balance is key. I ensure that I make time for silence so that I am able to nourish that side of me. Going for nature walks, sitting in a quietly in a park and at times I will even have silent weekends.
The next time you have have a few minutes to spare, close your eyes and be open to what your soul is trying to communicate to you. No destination train, I’m on board!
