Moving into silence can be one of the most powerful places for transformation. We often fill spaces with words, to do's, consumption, and things. If we can sit with silence and non-doing, we allow for our light to be fueled and relaxed by the breath.
Many people have a slight fear of the silence......Fear of what thoughts may arise....Fear of letting go of the external happenings.....Fear of what others may say or do when nothing is happening.....Fear we will lose control over the moment.
We often fill moments with unnecessary chatter and tasks due to a certain discomfort with silence with the self and/or with others. Take some time to allow silence to have its space. Honor the silence, breathing into it while knowing that all that comes up and occurs in that moment is what is really leading the way. The space and openness is what allows for creativity and blooming to arise. It gives our light a chance to breath in the air it needs to be lit up brightly. It allows for the universe to take over and lead the way.
Inviting silence into your life with a safe and loving embrace can allow for a powerful trust and faith to arise within you. It's within these moments that we can let the non-striving occur, which allows for the unexpected beauty to arise. Its a certain laid back attitude we can invite for a more easeful unfolding of our path. It's trusting in the breath to keep us alive. It's a trusting that our path will continue to unfold in the way it is meant to be. When we can sit with others in silence, we allow for a solid trust to take over. We can rest into the fact that there really is nothing to say or do except breath and receive. It's a transformative moment when we can trust in the safety and security of each moment as a gift that will arise for us just as it is meant to be.
