For today try to enjoy the time you are able to not talk. It can be meditative and informative. Silence will pull information from the past into the present and thus create awareness for positive change. Silence also helps us to be cognizant of unnecessary dialogue. When we become aware of the value in our silence, suddenly "speech" and dialogue take on a new interpretations.

With every word we utter there is a silent gap, whispering to us, "edit, edit, edit...hush, hush, hush"--and so, if we pay attention (awareness) with this new understanding of silence and speech, then what we think, what we feel, what we say and do not say, will fuel us rather than deplete us...

aahhhh The Practice!

So, when that Clock is about to strike 12:00 and that Noon train is approaching around the bend; the tracks are laden with golden bricks pointing you(!) in a Direction and your life is asking you: decide, decide, decide...who are you going to listen to? Silence & your heart? Or, the chatty speech and busy-ness of your little mind? (only time will tell.)
