      The Power of Silence?



      [ You have mentioned the power of sound, especially when related to
      music, but what do you think of the power of silence? Was that a part
      of the reason for you moving to a very rural area away from the city
      when you were young? ]



      No, it was not, for I had never been without the opportunity for silence
      even when living in the city. But it sure was easier in the rural area
      :- ))) In the rural area one had to go looking for noise occasionally :-
      ) One must have a good balance of both. However, an hour's silence
      each day is an absolute necessity. It is the only time one can be in
      communication with oneself and take notice of the inner pulses and
      drives. Simply going to sleep is not good enough and it is not the same
      thing. Silence whilst awake is essential. But quit doing deliberate
      thinking while in that silence. It is also a healer; a medicine. And it
      can result in even more than that ;- ) Silence IS a good friend, and
      always there to call on when you need it. But don't only wait until you
      need it. A balanced life of all the things which you have is always the
      best way. Extremes of only one thing will drive you obsessive and then
      insane. You need some of the things which society can offer you, and
      some of the things which it cannot offer you. Use both in moderation.
