Silence

By Ellie Liedl

“To be in silence can start with a journey in the mind.  Be with oneself and start anew.”  I have used this way of thinking for most of this trip.  The key to succeeding and truly seeing in the silence is personal silence.

How can you stop, look, feel and listen?  I’ve learned that stopping and being quiet can bring more joy than obtaining our greatest material desires.  I sat in the village square and watched as children ran around me playing.  I couldn’t help but think of my own little sisters – would they play like this all day or ask to go inside and watch TV?

To stop and listen is to start a journey in the mind.  Go be by yourself and you can find the things you never noticed – they were there all along.
