You haven’t partied until you’ve partied at dawn in complete silence with Buddhist monks.

-Cameron Diaz-

Why is it so challenging for us to be quiet? Does silence hold a deep importance in our loud world?  Today’s Daily Dose, shared by Sadhguru is a short lesson in becoming silent when noise pollution is a common companion.

Sadhguru stresses the importance of silence, not just as the absence of sound, but as an important way of communicating. He encourages us to allow ourselves to become part of life as an observer rather than a judge. Further, he tells us that silence is possible when we don’t think much of ourselves. Sound interesting? Check out the full clip here.

If you want to delve deeper into the power of silence, the BBC did a great story about silence in the modern age. Additionally, you can learn more about Sadhguru via his ChannelWebsite, and new book Inner Engineering, A Yogi’s Guide to Joy.

Enjoy this exercise in silence! Give it a try; you may be surprised at the amount you can accomplish by being quiet.

Have a great day and Stay Wise.
