I’ve written on here before about silence, and DC has described hearing silence in his essays, but I would like to share a strong experience of silence, today.
My wife and I were walking around a reservoir, which is fed by many small bubbling streams. In the background were young birds cheeping, and trees rustling in the breeze. So, far from silent. But the sounds were such that I became aware of a palpable silence forming behind the sounds, at the same time as an energy wrapping itself around my head.
Watch for that, and for where it may take you, whatever ‘it’ is. It seems more than mere absence of sound.
