So lets talk about talking.
Why talk about talking? Don't we all talk about talking all the time?
Why give a break to the mouth that is blabbering a lot. Or for the ones who haven't caught the bug, why even talk to yourself when your mouth isn't blabbering a lot?
Now for a moment, just shut up. Shut your trap. Shut your mouth Shut your mind off. Even shut down the voice that you use when you are seeing these words. All you are seeing would now be the silent words, that seem to make sense to you, yet leave no vocal imprints in your thought space.
The silence that is always there is staring back at you now.
The awareness that was always there is suddenly more aware now.
All that you can feel is right now.
The gift of presence, is in being present.
Now that we have touched upon the silence within, lets now talk about talking.
Why talk now? Why would one want to spray point with our common blabber mouth over the masterpiece Mona Lisa of the present moment? Let those spray painting disappear into the silence along with your worries about the future, anxieties about your past and memories, and anything else that seems to distract you from this moment .. right now..
Its natural for your breath to be more present in these moments of silence.
The rising of breath.
The falling of breath.
The slow and relaxing breath, simply brings you more into this moment.
Why talk about talking now? Lets talk about life living itself through the silence. As the silence talks its way into your life.
