Most people feel uncomfortable with silence. We equate it with “nothing happening.” Mystics KNOW that silence is the movement of NO-THING out of which it creates everything. Silence allows for the creation of the forever NEW.
The silence most people are familiar with is the silence that is the absence of noise—the absence of activity. This is what David Steindl writing in The Way of Silence—Engaging the Sacred in Everyday Life refers to as negative silence.
This is the only silence that most people are familiar with. For most people they equate it with the absence of noise. Notice how in most places you walk into that there is music or talk radio happening in the background.
For those who identify with the world of words, concepts and the overthinking personal mind silence is an experience of emptiness. There is nothing there. This brings up an unconscious reminder of death. Silence becomes akin to a deadly silence.
Why would anyone ever think there is value in entering such a nothing happening kind of state?
I cannot overstate the power of silence. This is the silence of aloneness that leads to ALL-ONE-NESS. This differs greatly from the silence of loneliness.
