Seek Silence

“If you love truth, be a lover of silence. Silence, like the sunlight will illuminate you in God.” ~ St. Isaac, 7th Century Hermit Monk

What a beautiful thought! We live in a society full of noise and useless chatter. Everywhere you go there is the noise of the media, the noise of gossip, and even the noise of one’s own mind chatter. It is a shame that one has to “get away” in order to enjoy peace and quiet. Why get away? Because right here is noisy!

Create your own sanctuary for silence and peace. It is not necessary to go away because wherever you go, there you are! You must be the peace you seek. When you make the conscious choice and effort to turn off the useless chatter, then you will begin to experience more tranquility in your life.

Just for today, be the calm, the peace and the silence you want to see in your life.
