I am finding more time to sit in silence. It’s incredible when you can sit in silence consistently and listen. For me, thoughts, decisions, and actions, all become clearer.
It’s interesting because I believe I follow the beat of my own drum. I have always been like this. It didn’t matter what class I took or the educational program; I applied what was essential or needed at the time and incorporated it.
I’m not a follower.
Even when viewing social media, my bullshit meter is on full alert. Is it just me, or is everyone else tired of seeing the identical old posts from the same people in the same place they were a year ago talking about the same old problems?
Maybe I don’t have the patience anymore.
I may be getting older.
I may be growing spiritually.
I am happy with my journey and the changes I am making. Is everything perfect? Of course not. But I feel a sense of calm and peace like never before.
I have always been a very optimistic person viewing the glass as half full. But, of course, that has much to do with my upbeat daily mental health.
Silence has heightened my sense of me. It has allowed me to improve the things I want to improve. It has allowed me to focus more on what truly matters to me. It has allowed me to recognize the bullshit when I hear it sooner.
It has also allowed me to understand that I am more advanced in some spiritual areas than I thought.
I don’t have to broadcast or teach upon it to prove who I am.
Silence has been able to help me connect with my higher self, and that’s all that matters.
