The More You Can Hear

"The quieter you become, the more you can hear."  - Ram Dass

It is pouring rain, truly buckets of rain are coming down, lightening is flashing and the dogs are trying to sit on me.  But this rain coming down tonight inspires quiet time........I think sometimes
there is so much noise around us, so much frenzied energy that quiet scares us.   

When you are quiet, that's when you can listen to you.......the answers are there, deep inside......but we search for them in all the wrong places, as far away from ourselves as we can go.

Quiet for me, is is contemplation, it is rest for the mind and spirit and the senses.  I spent some time this afternoon being still and quiet.......I realized after a short time how much I needed it today.
I heard over and over, my body saying rest......and I agreed......

This weekend, find some time to be will soothe jagged nerves, and worn out bodies and frayed minds........if there are problems or issues to be solved, you might just "hear" some answers......or, maybe just hear a bird sing.


  1. It's raining here too...and like you, I love quiet. I love a cozy day...dark, with time to get things done and maybe some music to sooth the soul. Just love a day like that!!

  2. I believe wholeheartedly in what you wrote. It never fails and I need it daily. And yes, the rain that fell last night was a lovely sound to me, even with the thunder.
