FINDING PEACE AND HAPPINESS IN MOMENTS OF SILENCE — by Catherine Morgan

Where did the saying “I just want a little peace and quiet” come from? Obviously, from someone who understood that peace can only exist in silence. The noise of life is like a barrier that stands between you and peace. But, quieting the noise with silence can break down this barrier, and open the door to the peace that is within you.

Quieting your mind, for even just a few minutes a day, can make all the difference in the world. You can have a full day of work or family related stresses, but in a few minutes of stillness reclaim the peace that is sometimes lost in our stressful lives. Using a guided meditation can be very helpful with this process.

As silence is the road to restoring our peace; peace is the highway to our happiness. You can have everything you ever wanted in life, but without peace you may still have trouble finding true happiness. Even if your life is very troubling or stressful, happiness and peace does not have to allude you, just find yourself some moments of silence. But, don’t take my word for it. Give it a try. Get yourself some peace and quiet.

    One of the most challenging things for some people to do is to stop thinking and just be. That is a form of conditioning that isn’t widely taught in Western societies. Its nice to see Eastern and Zen influences becoming more appealing and practices more widespread. Often, we have faith in the physical body as our greatest source of strength when the mind really rules awareness, choices and our overall well-being.
