Hello Silence My Old Friend: The Quest For Quiet
The key to the song of silence is personal and internal.
In troubled times, people have endured silence as a way to learn to live in solitude.
Silence makes us lonelier, some say, and others say it’s just silence and it’s the only way we can learn to live with being alone.
The default thinking is that being alone with only our thoughts swirling in our heads is destructive, negative. A constant cul-de-sac that leads nowhere. But silence allows us to listen to our innermost feelings and silence leads to an understanding of who we are- it helps us when we need it most critically – in stressful situations.
Silence has a message for us wanting to understand loneliness.
