Silence is not the absence of sound. Silence is a type of sound itself. Within silence is energy, one that when truly experienced without the preconceived idea of no noise equaling silence, can be found to be full of noise/sound, even movement. Meditators will be familiar with what we suggest to be so. It is said that before babies awaken fully to the world around them they know no difference between sound and no sound, to them silence does not exist, they only know differing degrees of sound. As they grow further and are able to communicate they begin to realize through interaction that those older than themselves create a great distinction between loud and quiet with the less obvious quiet becoming silence, they lose the ability to hear silence, for they are told there is nothing to be heard – silence is silent. Your world is noisy and though some sounds are much sought after many sounds inflicted upon the average person are unwelcome. Those who are without hearing, of course, have no choice either way, perhaps they would welcome any sound. Mmm… but do you believe that the profoundly deaf hear nothing at all? Could it be they hear sound, just not the same sound as defined by those whose hearing is unimpaired? Is this all seeming no-sense to you? How can there be sound when no sound is present? Sound is a vibration – just as you are – all things natural are a vibration and all things vibrate to their own frequency. So, if we propose sound can be heard in what is named silence, it follows also that we propose there must be something natural, some vibration within the silence. This vibration within “silence” has slowly been forgotten. The world has become and will continue to become far too noisy for some to easily “hear” this vibration, unless one deliberately removes one’s self from the world’s noise. With this deliberate act of removal one can finally sense the quieter vibration, the sound within the silence, the sound that has existed throughout all time, the sound that you heard as newborns and will again if you seek it. Be still, beloved children, be still and listen for the sound within the silence, for, that forgotten vibration is the vibration of you and the universe sounding in harmony, a glorious sound indeed. Be still, be peace and heed this beautiful noise.
