The Joy of Quiet

Gradually, you will return to yourself, having learned a new respect for your heart, and the joy that dwells far within slow time. — John O’Donohue

Inspiration of the Day:
The future of travel, I’m reliably told, lies in “black-hole resorts”, which charge high prices precisely because you can’t get online in their rooms. Has it really come to this? We have more and more ways to communicate, as Thoreau noted, but less and less to say. Partly because we’re so busy communicating. And — as he might also have said — we’re rushing to meet so many deadlines that we hardly register that what we need most are lifelines. So what to do? The central paradox of the machines that have made our lives so much brighter, quicker, longer and healthier is that they cannot teach us how to make the best use of them; the information revolution came without an instruction manual. Celebrated author Pico Iyer explores the Joy of Quiet.

Be The Change:
In the midst of activity, or otherwise, consciously practice some moments of silence.
