Find That Deep Place of Silence

October 3rd, 2006 by Laura Moncur in Motivation

“That deep place of silence…”

It’s very rare for me to find that deep place of silence. I call them my Zen Moments. When it comes, I usually spend the entire time telling everyone around me how pretty everything is. I have experienced it at restaurants, in the car and just sitting.

It has NEVER come to me while in prayer or meditation.

I wish I could control it. I wish I could have enough mastery over my mind that I could move into that place of silence whenever I wanted. Instead, it attacks me like a vampire. I have filmed a couple of my Zen Moments. You can see them here:

I know that I can achieve that calm silence that makes the whole world look beautiful anywhere or anytime, but I can’t control it. I guess that’s the next step.
