Once we use words to drown silence, they become meaningless. Saying what we mean and doing what we say are actions a lot of us have trouble with. But our words take on power when they carry depth and integrity. As you grow to find comfort and peace in a silence practice, you'll no longer need to fill space with words hastily. Over time, you'll learn to intentionally measure your words — you'll become better at carrying conversations with articulate clarity. When your words have power, you have power.
There are many reasons to use a day of silence to ask yourself what you need to come into balance and further your personal care. It will allow you to breathe some life back into your dreams and aspirations. It’ll help you tap into your personal power as you align your thoughts, words, and deeds.
