What makes being together in silence comfortable?
– a shared feeling
– rules and rituals
– resting in the moment
– being part of the same “tribe”
What makes it uncomfortable?
– unspoken words that are stuck somewhere.

– not having a ‘click’
– restlessness and a busy mind
The other aspect of Silence is the one in solitude.
As most human beings are group animals we like to be part of a tribe.
But consciously choosing silence in solitude is another form of connection.
It’s the portal to feel the connection to yourself and to all the beings and things surrounding you. Now: Do you experience moments of shared silence?
In connection? In touch? Do you have any moments of silence in solitude?`
If so, do you enjoy it? Is it awkward?
Notice for yourself when you experience silence as comfortable or as uncomfortable.
If you enjoy shared silence and being together- or if you prefer the silence in solitude:
create moments in your daily life to have them!
How? Shared silence in connection:
Hug your loved ones. Spooning with a friend. Lay with a dog or a cat. Dance tango!
Silence in solitude: Reserve time by yourself to simply BE.
Notice shapes, colors, sounds, smells.
Allow your senses to open up and connect you to the surrounding beauty.
