The Silence of Our Thoughts

genre_21183_3
How long can you be
alone with your thoughts,
no distractions: book
remains closed, TV off,
no idle conversation,
no music–just silence
and your mind? Where will
your thoughts take you?

Most people are afraid
of being bored, but why
would we find our perception
of our world boring?

Other people may fear being
faced with their ghosts
from the past. Regrets, guilt,
hurt, resentment, should haves…

Then there are worries about
the future; the “what-ifs” that
keep us a prisoner, afraid to
act, to decide, to go forth
with faith and resolve…
but
what if
undistracted
thoughts
lead us
into
discovery?

What might we find deep
within our consciousness?
What worlds unexplored,
full of possibilities and
promises are waiting for
us to be silent and aware.

  1. great stuff!
    it’s always nice to turn the telly off and just listen to thoughts as they speed by, some in loops, some meander and some shift their shape into unlooked for thoughts 🙂

  2. Reblogged this on dyke writer and commented:
    Television is my brain;s life support
    it;s the safest way I socialized

    being on line is my second second life, the one I wish I was living

    instead of just existing between 2 screens

    reeling from real
    thus lurching
    reel to reel

    really

    yes

    rilly rilly
