When I am silent, I hear my true self and reach my soul.
When I am silent, I hear with a caring heart.”
. . . . . Thomas Merton
Spend the day in silence. I think one of the best gifts you can give yourself is to spend the day (or even longer) in silence. If you live in Texas, there are several places you can go to get away and be silent. Below is a listing for Lebh Shomea Retreat Center near Kingsville, on the Texas coast.

If you live somewhere else, google for “silent retreat centers.”
Or, you may have a place of your own that you can go to to be quiet.
Deepak Chopra says he goes somewhere to be silent once per month. Turn down the noise outside your mind and you will turn down the noise inside your mind.
This is one of the most powerful mind techniques I know.
Why not make it a New Year’s Resolution to spend at least one day per month in silence?
