The Full Story
the department of Silence exists for the purpose of promoting the power of silence as an authentic focus of 21st century leaders, thinkers, creators, influencers, parents, artists, dreamers, manifesters, teachers, healers and all those on the leading edge of inner space everywhere.
Some of the greatest minds in ancient and modern history have spoken of its unique powers and beauty.
but most of us dismiss these claims as attainments only for the high minded saints and geniuses of days gone by.
We are too busy in our little bubbles of noise to care for something so abstract.
or else we treat it like a product or process, expecting instruction manuals, and proven benefits.
experimenting with silence is an art. i.e. something creative and enjoyable
it is also a science, i.e something that can be experimented with, and the effects seen clearly.
silence is just a word, but a universal one and one that points to a space or state where words, concepts and time disappear, even if just for a moment and self is present.
when psychologist Abraham Maslow put 'self actualisation' at the peak of his heirachy of human needs, I don't believe he was simply talking about using our unique talents for noble purposes, but also the fulfilment of the self in knowing its own true nature and identity.
Only from that true nature and identity, can someone act with clarity and effectiveness. that my friends, is what I believe to be the greatest need of our times.
in order to get silence into the mainstream, WE WILL shout quietly through whatever means available.
for now, that will we be through writing, meditations and videos. but hopefully will soon include interviews, podcasts and some useful projects.
