Silence Is Golden

We have so much access to media these days
that many people are actually afraid of silence.

Just because the buffet table is free
you don't have to eat all the time.
The body needs time to digest.
 
Have you lost the art of sitting still and taking in the view? 
 
Life is a conversation with your Higher Self, 
but it becomes a tedious, one sided monologue
if you don't quiet your mind
and listen to your inner Wisdom.
 
Technology is wonderful.
Cell phones are a blessing, 
and computers are a gift from God.
 
You'll get even more out of them 
when you take a break now and then.
