Silence is like food

Are you nourishing your soul with silence? Paying attention to your sonic environment is one practice in global awareness. Here is a Daily Sound Journal practice for bringing attention to the sounds in your daily life. Choose one day and make note of the sounds that you encounter in a given day.
  • What are the qualities (texture, volume, color, shape) of these sounds?
  • Where in your body do you feel a response to these sounds?
  • What thoughts appear in your mind when you hear a sound?

    Nosing around your site like I just dropped into Wonderland. This post really resonates with me. (So to speak.) It's a bit of a crusade of mine. Popular technologies cause people to spend all their time listening to manufactured sounds pumped through tiny speakers. In a sense, they are emulations of sound, including only a microscopic fraction of the full range of physical vibrations. The real sounds around us are immensly richer.
