Silence From Within
Meditation can help you find your silence from within. Below is one of my absolute favorite quotes. It really simplifies finding the happiness and peace within yourself. You have to love yourself first, then the silence from within will keep you balanced. I think the ultimate way to balance and settle within yourself, and draw strength, is to meditate. When I first started meditation, I didn’t think it was for me or that it worked. But amazing things have happened in the roughly year and a half that I have practiced meditation. Mindfulness is key to making decisions. I have been able to channel that mindfulness and that has resulted in making better choices in my life.. I am finding more strength within myself every day. I attribute that to meditation.
For thousands of years people have used meditation to move beyond the mind’s stress-inducing thoughts and emotional upsets into the peace and clarity of present moment awareness. The variety of meditation techniques, traditions, and technologies is nearly infinite, but the essence of meditation is singular: the cultivation of mindful awareness and expanded consciousness.

Silence is something that comes from your heart, not from outside.
Silence doesn’t mean not talking and not doing things, it means that you are not disturbed inside.
If you are truly silent, then no matter what situation you find yourself in, you can enjoy the silence.
