The sound of Silence

Love the simplicity of this

Let`s sit in a very quiet place.

What do you hear?

Is there any sound outside?

What about inside?

Is it quiet inside?

Are there any voices?

Is  there a voice?

Is anyone having a monologue inside my head?

It is actually very noisy inside.

It is very loud.

So loud that I can`t hear the silence from outside.

Let`s try to be silent inside.

Let`s try to have peace.

Let`s try to stop that inner chattering

Let`s meditate

Let`s breathe

Just for a moment

Just be

Be still

Be silent

Be Silence

About Jill M Jacques

I grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa, and have spent most of my life here doing the usual things - marrying, having children and caring for an array of pets ranging from dogs to silkworms and chameleons. I first became interested in philosphy and its practical application in everyday life in my early 20s and spent many years as part of a group that pursued this goal. Drawing on this experience, I have been running "How to live in the Now" programmes for over 10 years. I wrote this book in response to requests from group members for something "simple and practical". I tend to see the funny side of life situations and enjoy writing humorous back pages as well as short stories and some poetry. Some of these have been published. Being here now is what really matters.
