34 Ssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhh!

burning tree sunsetSilence is an art
It is a skill worth learning.
It is a journey in observation,
The examination of thought, and action,
That eventually brings wisdom, & the eloquence of knowing
When to speak,
What to speak,
Where to speak,
How to speak
In the appropriate way,
At the precise time
With just the right execution
Learning the art of silence brings with it the knowledge and understanding that sometimes not everything needs to be said.

  3. Well said. I like this particular post as it reminds me of raising Jordyn. Many times I had to tell her that everything that came to her mind did not have to come out of her mouth.

  9. Excellent.It is not necessary to speak always and pronounce an opinion on any and everything.Most of what we have had spoken would not have made any difference if not uttered at all.Speak if one must but with brevity.Silence adds to powers of observation and mental strength.It is tough initially but silence comes by practice.

  12. Absolutely right. Remaining silent is an art which very few people have mastered ! When you are silent you can concentrate on what you see ,listen, smell,touch,think & dream and thereby gain an ocean of experience leading to greater wisdom !
    Have a great weekend.
