The best sound is silence. It’s something about the way you can really hear everything in silence. You can hear nature going on about its business, you can hear your thoughts clearly, and you heart suddenly doesn’t have to yell at you to get your attention. Prayer and meditation are heightened to their most effective capability. Calmness is free to move over you. If life is too hectic like you are falling through the sky silence can ground you. Silence can force you into deep thought and can ease an anxious soul. It is profound what we can achieve, what we can hear, and what we can discover in silence.
Outside of silence, other sources of sound can have a profound impact on our lives. Music being the number one motivator. Different music has different effects on us. Through happiness and sadness, through love and anger, through motivation and discouragement, we find different ways we can relate to music. Music can lift us up from our lowest points, or it can break down our walls as it tugs on the strings of our hearts. The vibrations can stir quite strong emotions in our soul. Music can bring us together, and also drive us apart. The beauty of music is that there is something out there for all of us for any occasion. Some find their home in music, and some are reminded of home. Music is an expression of the soul.
