In silence and stillness we dial in our capacity to pay attention- to focus- and to concentrate. With practice, the space of silence allows distraction to fall away as we simply and quietly observe with some ‘distance’ our impulse to indulge. With forbearance and curiosity we become more thoughtful, reflective, and insightful. As the ‘chatter’ and ‘noise’ of the mind quiets, we begin to really see and to hear the subtleties of our embodied experiences- directly and intimately. Listening attentively in this way becomes the insight and bridge to our understanding.
