Just two years ago, I would listen to music or radio talk during my daily walk. The music I listened to would inspire/motivate me to "press on"! Today, I walk to silence. I crave it now as I never had before! In my "silence" of today's walk outdoors, the wind, birds, movement of the trees, cars passing were "my song"!
In "silence", everything is magnified. . . awareness is heightened . . . I can be . . . and be with whomever I wish to be. Too, in it (silence) I can best hear God.
