ANSWER THIS #67 QUESTION

#67 question
In which situations do you choose words over silence and vice-versa?

Know! The power of silence and words for you.

“When words don’t matter silence works wonders.”

– Farheen Dhanjal

How does silence is good?

The power of silence is versatile. Silence can transcend speech, speak without words, and complement where verbal language is lacking.

And keeping silent also has advantages in terms of creativity, mental health, spiritual and religious practice, achieving the upper hand in negotiations, and even as a way to intimidate.

Silence is all-encompassing: mysterious but clear. soothing but painful, idle but useful, consenting but rebellious, and elusive but accessible. Silence is everything!

Four benefits of being silent.

(1) The quieter you are, the more you hear.

When we let go of all the words, we open ourselves up to other voices previously suppressed by continual verbal noise. These could be inner voices (as philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson called the ‘inner knowing’) and outside voices and sounds that one misses because of a lack of listening.

We can listen effectively if we keep quiet, inside and outside. By keeping quiet, we become receptive to our surroundings. We pay attention to what our senses observe, so we learn and eventually become smarter and wiser.

If we refuse to keep quiet nor listen to what others have to say, we only share what we already know and don’t learn anything.

(2) Silence boosts creativity.

The theoretical physicist Albert Einstein argued that silence stimulates the creative
mind.

When he couldn’t come up with an idea, he’d just stop thinking and “swim in silence,”(as he called it) and wait for the right information to come to him. Therefore, like many other great minds, Einstein spent a lot of time in solitude, using quietness to his advantage.

As he stated, and quote: “The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulate the creative mind.”

(3) Silence can send a powerful message.

In many cases, keeping quiet can send a much stronger message than using speech. By responding to words with silence or using rightly timed pauses during conversations, we’re able to communicate effectively without speaking or writing.

Silence allows us to express what discourse cannot. The many words uttered, ideas shared and promises made, never fully encompass the human experience.

However, the power of silence as an answer to tragedy is that we acknowledge that no amount of words do justice to what we seek to commemorate; it’s so significant to us that we’re willing to stop talking and be silent for a certain amount of time.

(4) Silence improves well-being.

How can one take refuge from a noisy world and a noisy intellect?

Innumerable experiences of many different people across the ages tell us that silence helps us calm our busy minds.

A significant body of research suggests that silence relaxes the mind, enhances sleep, and lessens insomnia. Also, a study found that two minutes of silence has a more calming effect than listening to relaxing music. Other studies show that environmental noise exposure increases stress hormone levels and can cause disruptions in sleep structure.

CONTENTS OF THE QUESTION

Each question would consist of 3 parts:
Part 1: QUESTION – It would determine the path of knowing you as an individual.

Part 2: KNOW – It would let you know what you learned about yourself.

Part 3: QUOTE – It would depict the righteous approach to the concept being asked in the question.

HOW TO PRACTICE THIS ACTIVITY?

You just have to reply to Part 1, and just read, learn and reflect on Parts 2 and 3.

Grab a pen & paper and start writing your reply. Remember! Nothing is tough when it comes to doing it for yourself. And, you just need to be truthful to yourself.

Feel free to share.

Happy “soul-searching”
