Take refuge in the silence, in the stillness, in the emptiness, just breathing, just waiting, for restoration, recovery, reassurance, realization, revitalization, renewal, direction, courage, confidence, balance, harmony, stability, security, determination, and the will to go on. The silence, etc., is good for all of this and more. A day without silence is like a day with nothing but noise. Noise is anti-life. Which is to say lifeless. Which is to say death. For every minute of noise in your life, you need an hour of silence, etc., to even things out. How is your ratio looking these days?
