¿Why Silence is so important in my life?

•septembre 17, 2020 • Laisser un commentaire

Silence is a space where we can just be.
Where the world of noise, distractions and inputs takes a break.

It’s a moment to contact with myself.
To learn to listen: listen to my body, listen to my heart, my emotions.

It’s a secret and safe place to be if I can stay aware to accept what’s arise.
It’s this path to the light into myself.

What Is a Silent Retreat?

Silent retreats encourage participants to take a vow of silence for a given time. That means no talking during meditations as well as during meals, yoga, and other activities. By removing distractions and verbal communication, participants can reach a deep level of contemplation and personal reflection.

How a Silent Retreat May Benefit You?

You’ll benefit from a digital detox

Considering no talking is a primary tenet of silent retreats, that means parting ways with your phone. Without the constant stream of distractions in the form of impossibly long text threads and ever-changing social feeds, you may find yourself more focused and more deeply connected to your fellow practitioners—even without talking to them. The concentration and efficiency afforded by a digital detox will likely extend beyond your retreat, too.

You may find more joy and beauty in the world around you

In reality, silent retreats aren’t all that silent. But by removing many of the noises we as humans can have control over, we’re left with the calming, serene sounds of nature. And because silent retreats often take place in gorgeous, tranquil settings, you’ll be able to appreciate the picturesque scenes right in front of you.

You’ll likely become more mindful

Mindfulness, or “maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and the surrounding environment through a gentle, nurturing lens,” is the basic training in many silent retreats. Several studies back up the connection between silent meditation and mindfulness, while other research suggests mindfulness can boost immune system health, benefit people with insomnia, and improve quality of life.

You’ll be better equipped to handle the tough stuff

By turning inward through silence, you may be faced with some uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. Prolonged silence can help you better process and manage negative thoughts and teach you to stop reacting to negative sensations—both during the retreat and long after.

Your brain may become more efficient

One study that compared the effects of a seven-day silent meditation retreat on the brain function of practised meditators and people who did not regularly meditate found that non-meditators had reduced activation in certain regions of the brain. They interpreted this result as increased brain efficiency.  An earlier study found meditation training improves brain efficiency, probably by way of improved attention and impulse control.

You’ll be proud of yourself

It may be hard to compare running a marathon to a silent retreat, but they’re both challenging in their own ways. Devoting so much time to your own thoughts takes patience, diligence, and even bravery. At the end of your retreat, it’ll be hard not to feel proud of the work you put into your mental health and wellbeing.

You’ll create conection with others.

Even if we don’t have verbal relation with the rest of the group, knowing that you are part of it is a very powerful tool to life. You become more aware of other signs of presence of other person. Your attention to yourself is improved by the secure thought of « feeling part of this group ». The conection you create with other is on a deeper level.

Is it that the world I live in?

It’s long time that I don’t take the time to write in my blog. Not that nothing was important this days or months but just that I started to work with Instagram and share my pictures there. But now.. it’s time to write again.

The image is not enough. I need to put words on my feelings.

I am sad. Deeply sad. Even if I can feel the gratitude in every moment I also feel that I am never on the right place. I feel a gap between the world and me. Like the loneliness feeling or this feeling of never be adequate where I am.

This feeling to be in a world cold and competitive that I don’t recognize like the world I want to live in. I don’t want to live in a society where we are just looking for our individual wellness, where there is no more « free » offering to others and where all is counted.

What I give you, you need to give me! Is that our world now?

where is the altruism, the offering, the free giving.. just the care of other before our own, individual and selfish needs? I am not sure that I want to walk in this cold world.
I love to share, to offer and also realize that I am looking to feel that other also share, care and protect me.

Is the path an individual path? I have learned that yes. It is an individual path and sometimes other person meet you on the way, make some steps with you and then go back to their own individual, selfish needs?

My question is what to do with this? Where do I have to go? where is the world I want to live in?  This world of kindness, offering and peace. Not a stupid loving place.. but a serious world where sanity, listening and trust are there to make people growing in their own basic goodness. Just this.. offering the person to touch, feel and be this inner basic human goodness.

We are all born with it. Why not make each step of our life with this as partner? With the wish of wellbeing for other and not the supression of other’s succes. The opening to vulnerability, to our heart because we trust that nobody will try to hurt us.

Where is this world? can I create it? Can I survive in this society if I build my life, my relationship, my work on confidence, heartfulness and kindness?
I don’t know?!

There is the sadness in my heart. The not knowing  if it is possible. Maybe I become an adult? I used to believe that it was possible. Now I ask myself if I miss the correct moment to came on Earth… and be just a vulnerable, sensitive human being.

let go and fly..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It was a dream or was it this vision that you are expecting from so long? Some idea coming from an universe where feelings don’t have words but just energy.

Some place where you don’t really know if it’s real or not.

I could see him so clearly and hear his warm voice with the same rhythm as she was.

I was wondering and questioning a previous reply. But not from him. This reply that I couldn’t believe. « Only me? »

Is it right? is it what I have to do? Nobody could answer me. I had this thought in me already from a few days, weeks or maybe years.

I know that deep inside me I had loved to have someone to care this question with me, to help me to see if the path is correct.

And he was there. This night, the last one of the year. And which year!

He said just this, looking at me: « promise me to not come back ».

All was said.

I could feel my body becoming lighter. I could feel the power of his eyes and the tenderness of his love and care for me.

I could let go.

I could fly.

I woke up.

 

Patience
