The sound of silence

"The life of every being has some vast emptiness in it. Unspeakable, grievous. There is a field in the middle of my wood where no one goes. It is the heart of my loneliness. I go there to dance and be quiet. And I love the intensity of its silence. You must know every contour of your emptiness before you can know who you wish to invite in." -- Taisia Kitaiskaia

Sometimes I think we are too afraid of quietness. Of being still. Of being alone.

There is a difference between being alone and being lonely.

But we needn't be afraid of being alone with ourselves. To know our ins and outs. To know the intensity of silence.

We need to become aware of our life's flow.

The essence of what makes us be.
