It’s not such an advantage to be a go-getter when you’re trying to sit in silence. If you’re going to “go get” the objective, you have to do more than just pause: you have to stop. You have to feel the silence all the way to your toes, keep blinking (sleep is not the same as silence, I don’t care what my body tells me), and trust that the world won’t end just because you stop for a brief respite.
Try it. Silence is therapeutic. The ensuing chaos of your life will be bearable because you renewed yourself in the silence.
