The complete absence of sound is referred to as silence (noun). Silence (verb) is the state of becoming silent, being quiet, or refraining from speaking. These are only the most basic definitions of silence; however, more resounding, silence has more to offer.
Silence can be painful for some people. It’s difficult to talk about things that have broken them. Silence, for some, connotes the passage of time. It’s better to remain quiet and let time tell the story. For some, silence is a form of sound. People who are detached from reality and society, such as those suffering from depression, hear the loudness of silence. These are just a few examples!
On the other hand, I discovered that silence could be a powerful tool in various contexts, including relationships, the workplace, personal goals, and communication. Let me share five powers of silence with you that will open your eyes to a new perspective.
The Supremacy of Silence
#1. Silence helps you discover your soul’s wisdom.
Through silence, you can discover your soul’s wisdom. How? Silence can give you the time you need to meditate, contemplate, and reflect. Practicing silence will help you find yourself and your passion. For instance, in a time of silence, take advantage of reading good books such as scriptures. It’s a great bridge to get closer to our God Almighty. Listening to His words is a beautiful experience in the heart. Practicing silence will help you become better than your past.
#2. Silence teaches you the value of words.
As the saying goes, “less is more.” Silence will teach you when to speak, how to speak, and what to say. You will develop the habit of only discussing things in terms of values. It will teach you to speak in ways that bring life, kindness, and softness to your heart and the hearts of others.
#3. Silence teaches how to listen and be compassionate.
Many life coach speakers, scholars, and religious leaders teach us to be critical of others and treat them with love. However, silence is wiser! It will lead you to respect, understand, and help others with compassion, humility, and love.
With silence, you will have the opportunity to listen to others truly. People at most want to be heard, but no one is willing to listen. We frequently listen to prepare ourselves to respond. The saddest part is that we sometimes choose to respond with retaliation. However, suppose we allow ourselves to be consumed by silence. In that case, we will understand and respond with compassion and humility.
#4. Silence will help you find peace.
When we are in a heated conversation, we tend to become more aggressive, even shouting to be heard and cutting off the other party. However, the more we cry and become hostile, the greater the distance we create. But, if we practice silence, it will help us surpass all understanding. Instead of dealing with someone resentful, it will bring you more peace and even better health and well-being.
#5. Silence will make you sophisticated.
People close to you will value your thoughts, beliefs, and judgments. They will respect you because they know you value your words and don’t put up with nonsense. They will be intimidated to do wrong against you because they see you as a keen observer instead of an arrogant verbose.
Silence, without a doubt, reigns supreme. It will prevent us from engaging in violent behavior. It can teach us life lessons that we would not learn amid chaos and noise. Silence can help us improve our values and relationships with others and, most importantly, with our Creator.
“Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.” ― Leonardo da Vinci
