Words and Silence

Good morning Spring.  So what if you’re a little chilly on my skin, the Sun eases the nip.  I decided to sit here and see what happens when I give myself to this morning moment.  Let words ease out of me with the Sun rising behind the pines, as the thin layer of frost melts away.  Let the silence settles into my body and mind waiting to let the words roll out here with you.

Words are powerful.  What I say, what you say, has impact on someone, something, somewhere. IMO.  I desire to be mindful of my varied rants and idle drivel.  I don’t always feel success-full as I’m a chatty girl (shush about it) and am given to speaking before I consider how I might come across or impact other.    I have a desire to share knowledge and give advise.  It can be a fine line when that is unwelcome to the receiver.  and… maybe my advise is not what you need to hear.  Maybe.. just maybe…very likely… it works better by asking questions that lead you to your own discovery, your own answers that ignite your own wisdom.  For example, rather than tell you my experience of relationships, ask you what yours are and what worked for you in the past.  Get you thinking about that for yourself.    I’m of the mind that self discovery is yours for the asking.  Your truth is what you decided it to be.

I feel it’s also important to speak to my truth and share what I feel about how you/life/the world impact me.   Silence has it’s importance. Silence can leave me void of self care, so full up of what I need to share, I’m sick with holding it in.   I’ll burst if I don’t break the silence.  I’m scared I won’t be loved if I share what’s really going on with me.  Hiding in silence is not like embracing silent moments for the opportunity for prayer, or meditation; some contemplative moment that needs calm and quiet so intention can be heard on deeper levels or with your God, your Source, your Oneness, your heart knowledge.  Contemplative silence is as important as breaking the silence of words that need to be spoken.

What needs saying in your life that is bursting to be said?  How does silence become a sacred experience for you?  Can you believe that you will be loved for all of who you are when speak your truth?
