Nothing to hear

What do you hear?
Stop and listen for a few moments before reading on...

I hear:
the hum of this computer...

...and Silence.

Do you hear the silence?
Beyond all the other the's there.

Our constant stream of thoughts can get in the way of psychophysical well-being.  Stopping to listen for the silence is a wonderful way to calm those thoughts.

Stop and listen now for a few moments before you go on.

Do you notice any changes in your mood?
Do you notice any tension in your body that you weren't aware of before you stopped?
Can you let go of any of it while you pay attention to the silence?

You don't need to strain to listen to the silence...because there is nothing to hear.
