In the past few weeks I’ve noticed many moments when I’ve been meditating or just connecting with others where words don’t seem necessary. Thoughts fall away effortlessly and the euphoria of being surrounded by a feeling of peace is all that is.
Many of my friends have also been noticing this delight of dipping into silence. Whether it’s a loving exchange simply sitting next to a dear friend or observing nature, getting deeper in meditation or just being content in that moment with who you are and what you are doing, they are having the same sort of feeling.
When I bask in this peacefulness for a moment, I find that I fall into a place where I wish that words didn’t even exist. Words cannot truly describe this peace, this joy, this bliss, but you wish everyone could feel it. It’s almost like tasting the most amazing new dessert and while you want to describe the flavour of it to a friend, it is so unique and delicate that it’s hard to find the right words. Yet when they taste it, they know exactly what you are talking about.
I feel like this is another step on our evolution, as we get more and more in tune with our inner being, our true essence that words become unnecessary, that is of course, when you are connecting with others who are at the same place.
I believe that there are many special children who are labeled as being autistic or with special needs who are already on this plane, but the people surrounding them simply aren’t there, so they are desperately trying to teach these children how to function in the “real world.”
When you consider that 60-90% of our communication is non-verbal, it doesn’t seem quite as far-fetched to let go of words. So much is communicated through your body language and your presence. Just think of an experience when you’ve walked into a room and then people who have been fighting become quiet. You don’t hear the words, but you can certainly feel the tension in the air. The same is true when you walk in the room and your kids are up to something mischievous. The look on their face, their behaviour and their thoughts of their plans hang in the room.. every parent can sense it.
I invite you to bring your awareness to silence. Let yourself indulge in silent moments and notice how you feel. Close your eyes to see if you go any deeper. How quickly do you relax. Dip into this rejuvenating pool of no-thingness to see how it refreshes you.
