Today, it is so easy to fill the quiet moments in our life with noise. Have you noticed this? Do you find yourself itching to turn the music on in the car, even for a five minute drive? Do you constantly need noise, or the presence of other people to avoid your own thoughts? Our thoughts shouldn’t scare us that much! But if they do – and our response is to drown them out – we will never be able to properly deal with them unless we respond by stopping and listening to the silence.
