I found this gem on Fiona Tribe’s (@white_owly) twitter feed. So much so that I have been sitting with this for a bit now, seeking some quiet.
Our lives and our times are often bound by what goes in our head and what we think goes in another’s head! Its a deadly combination.
As I type this, I wonder what you think!?! 😉
I tell myself, ‘Perhaps it is necessary to quieten down a bit. In the mind. Especially, of what other people think.’ I reason, I will have reduced the chatter by 50%. While that is impeccable logic, I am immediately present to what would happen to my chatter about me if it others werent involved in it.
You see, whats the point?
Amidst all the noise, I think the way to get to quiet is to not start with an ideal picture of what quiet is and go after it. Perhaps let quiet evolve.
After a while that begins to make sense. I invite quite by being present to noise.
It makes sense to me.
