The Word of the Month for September, 2019 is the word Silence. The saboteur of Silence is Noise. Silence is a key ingredient to meditation. You may have a quiet place meditate, but there can still be a lot of noise in your own mind once you sit down to rest. We must learn to find the silence within ourselves throughout the day, in order to heal our own minds, and to find a place where we can respond to whatever is in front of us instead of merely reacting. How do we access this space? Practice!
