Silence is a lost art and the primary source of realization. Things occur to us out of the silence. We can ponder the solution to a problem for days and take a shower and there it is with a clarity and certainty that leave all questions answered. Or we can wrestle with what to do until we fall asleep, and the right action comes to us in a dream. We can enhance our creativity by being quiet more often, for longer periods of time. With no agenda. No plans. No schedule. No time table for creativity to appear. Just. Being. Still. And. Quiet. With no end or outcome in mind, and no possibility of "success" or "failure." Being silent for the joy of being silent will turn the light around, and enable us to see things normally hidden from view. Making that a new way of life will produce unpredictable enhancements to the life we are living, with surprise and wonder becoming regular companions.
