Sometimes Silence is the Only Way

Have you ever known the best place for you to be is in silence?

Some folks find their way out of deep rivers through sharing the experience with others.  They lovingly receive life and energy through the heartfelt communication with friends.

Some folks tend to find the strength required to find their way through silent stillness and inner transformation that lovingly retreats from too much talk.

A lot of change has transpired in my life in the past two years, and some things required action and courage not common to me.  I admit, I had to retreat into my stillness to find my own ability to “see” things for what they are rather than how they appear.

I have been contacted personally by many readers and that lovingly extension is sincerely appreciated.  Others, have wished me well in your own way, and I am grateful.  If you are reading this note today after my silent withdrawal, I appreciate that you would take note of my post and visit.

I am so eager now to wander the globe of blogs and visit my friends and family in the blogosphere.

In the Grace of the Moment,


P.S.  I read a post that describes my experience so well.  The author, Jennifer, describes how a stick became a person.  I can’t help but think of how silence became my strength.  Check out this uplifting entry:

  1. Hi Harmony,

  2. Hi Harmony,

    Hi Harmony! I’ve been waiting for you 🙂

    Glad to see you back here in the blogosphere. Funny, but I haven’t checked my reader in a while and just today I did on the same day that you’ve posted.

    Check out Liz Strauss’s blog. She just finished a Blog-to-Show weekend that lists over 260 blogs:

    That will ease you back…

    Hello Davina,

    you are so kind, but let me promise you – I don’t need another 260 blogs to “ease me in” -HELP. It’s enough to keep us with my 100 or so blog contacts. Which reminds me to say how fortunate I feel to think that amid all the words populating the air space on any given day, that a reader would take the time to read mine.

    I so appreciate your words and your spirit. I have so much to learn from you about blogging.

    I have missed your soulfull way of capturing my attention. Thank you for all the encouragement you sent to me over the past couple months.

    Hi Harmony – I read Jennifer’s post. I’m glad you’re now at the stage where you’re eating the raspberries!

    I think we have to be open to find the truth. But as you say, different people have different ways to achieve this. Some of us keep on talking and wait for the truth to emerge. The rest prefer to fall silent and simply listen.

    Thank you for letting me know you are back. I’m delighted to see you posting here again.

    We all need THAT space within to rediscover the strength as clarity and awareness. Action arising from withdrawal indeed emanates THAT fragrance.
    Silently being…. wonderfully expressed Harmany!!!

    “It is very hard to live with silence. The real silence is death and this is terrible. To approach this silence, it is necessary to journey to the desert. You do not go to the desert to find identity, but to loses it, to lose your personality, to be anonymous. You make yourself void. You become silence. You become more silent than the silence around you. And then something extraordinary happens: you hear silence speak.” – unknown

    LOVE your blog. Molly Brogan

    HOLY MOLY, Molly what a quote!

    “you become silence. You become more silent than the silence around you. And then something extraordinary happens: YOU HEAR SILENCE speak.”

    How rich!
