I think I am always a talkative person. I have always been learning to be quieter, as it doesn’t only allow us to listen to others more and better, it allows us to listen to the sound of the nature. I believe the nature always wants to tell us something, and we will be able to get it if we pay attention. Moreover, if we are quiet, we can also listen to our heart, our mind.
As a parent, I always remind myself to be quiet, and let my kids tell me more about their stories or their thoughts.
Ram Dass is an American yogi and spiritual teacher. I just knew that he wrote the book, Be Here Now, and I have always been thinking of getting this book.

Do you enjoy silence sometimes?
Do you always get inspired by quotes?
That’s an interesting quote, which most of us would understand, and yet it does not hold water, at some levels of understanding too.
“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.”
This sort of thinking is thrown out there all of the time, but can’t we also hear stuff, amongst the loudest of noises. Noise, in some ways then, has nothing to do with it, neither has quietness, it’s more what we are listening for, that’s important.
On the other hand, what is quietness, but quieting our mind from thinking, and thinking, and thinking.
But this is our mind’s primary function, to think, so instead of spending energy trying to stop thoughts, perhaps we should just let it go on thinking, doing its own thing, while we step away into our self, and be our self outside of these thoughts, and this then is the real quietness, not the noise of our thoughts, which are quiet to everyone else, but to ourselves, but which is real quietness, inwardly, from these too.
So true, so true, better be quiet rather than keep talking.
That’s a nice proverb you shared and it is very true.
Absolutely I enjoy my silence every day.
I have a favourite corner where I sit and reminisce.
