Challenge of silence

Challenge of Silence : In this week , I am taking challenge of not speaking any word whole week , if their any important communication and emergency then I’ll contact or communicate only using what’s app and email.

Benefits of Speaking Less

Wise men speak when they have something to say. Fools speak because they have to say something — Plato.

When we’re unconscious of what we’re saying , these repetitive and negative thoughts become the main ingredients that comprise our speech, what we have to say.

Because most of what we think isn’t worth thinking , let alone speaking.

We might depend on communication , but talking isn’t always communication.

“It’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than a speak and remove all doubt” — Abraham Lincoln.

Intelligence

Speaking less doesn’t necessarily mean thinking less , but it can lead to better quality thoughts.

These are gifts that come when we cultivate inner and outer silence. Because it’s impossible to be perceptive of what’s going on around you when you’re busy talking all the time.

Before you speak , ask yourself if what you are going to say is true , is kind , is necessary , is helpful. If the answer is no , maybe what you are about you are about to say should be left unsaid. — Bernard Meltzer.

  4. When I was in school ( a school where the teachers were religious) we had retreats of three days where we did not speak and had no classes. We prayed in silence, ate in silence and read in silence. I loved these times and found that my silenced mind followed some very interesting paths.

  5. I hope your going without speaking challenge is going well! I can say from personal experience, when you say little, pick the right moment and then speak, it has the greatest impact.

  10. I really enjoyed your post, Amruta, it carries so much truth. The quote by Lincoln had me giggling whilst reading. Yes, a good listener is better then a
    full on talker.

  11. “Wise Old Owl”

    A wise old owl sat in an oak,
    The more he heard, the less he spoke;
    The less he spoke, the more he heard;
    Why aren’t we all like that wise old bird?

  13. Good thoughts! I realize as I look back with embarrassment on my most “cringe-worthy” moments, most of them involve moments I would have been better off keeping my mouth shut. 🙄
