I believe the thirst for silence is not a longing for the absence of sound.
Instead, it is a thirst for inner stillness, a thirst to stop the incessant interior thoughts and commentaries.
This interior dialogue repeats things like this:
“I am not loved.
I am not confident.
I am not good enough.
I could have done a better job.
I am not happy.
I am bored.
I am afraid to try new things.
Don’t pick me, I can’t do this.
I am jealous.”
We desperately want to stop this dialogue.
We want to hear a different Voice, the Voice that says, “I love you.
You can be confident.
You are good enough.
You do a great job.
I am all you need to be happy.
You no longer need to feel bored.
I have new plans for you.”
I am not just writing here about positive self-talk, although that can be highly beneficial.
What I’m describing is a connection with a deep-down profound affirmation of the substance of our being.
