The Sound of Silence

The sound of silence gifts us with presence, allowing moments of mindfulness to unfold and inspire.  It is the ability to humbly hear, and pay attention to that which is greater than what we interpret through the limited lenses of our linear perception. That inner knowing is the sound of silence urging us to pay attention and be mindful.

 

The sound of silence allows for pause. When we are not mindful, this pause is rare and perhaps nonexistent. It can be blocked out with distractions of what the ego needs to feel important. Although precious, this guidance is wise, unconditional and it does not judge whether we pay attention or not.

 

The sound of silence is deafening to the ego. It threatens the perceived perception of control that the ego needs to feel separate, important and right. The ego battles this unconditional support system endlessly. However, the graceful movement of the sound of silence is an endless vibration. It is most accessible when we observe and allow. The Sound of Silence is a State of Being.

This is my first writing challenge submission, any feedback is greatly appreciated 🙂

When we recognize and understand this language we have the advantage of great insight(s) into our lives. This symbolism, as Caroline Myss describes, connects every single one of us.

Archetypes are not to be confused with labels we project onto others rather they serve as a guidance system into our real selves.

What propels you in one direction or the other?

Archetypes are universally recognizable, however, the challenge lies in finding the ones that drive and describe you personally.

Have no fear; Caroline writes her expansive ideas with clear and concise intention. Her message is conveyed with an honest integrity. Upon reading her work, I felt she really wanted me to get it by understanding and applying this wisdom. Caroline thoroughly outlines the most prevalent archetypes in society during this time.  She defines and differentiates the archetypes on a deep and soulful level that will leave the ego either resisting or insisting.

This book ignites a deep discovery for conscious decision making in our lives. Grab a highlighter, make some notes and have fun with this symbolic language for and in your life.
