Noise is all around us, all the time, just about everywhere. Sounds can affect our moods and bodies in ways we may be completely unaware of. Unwanted sounds could cost us more than our hearing; it could cost us our lives. It is practically impossible to find a truly silent place, anywhere in the world. Meditation, whether it is sitting in silence, eating in silence, or walking in silence can help a person to be present, fully, with the body and mind united in peace. Different spiritual leaders speak about the power of silence with healing, centering, focusing and improving one’s over all being.
