Then there was silence. It’s as if the whole world conspired to just watch… for a fleeting moment. It was a moment of change, a turning point. While the world was busy and unrelenting, I, the rather relentless one, was beginning to enter another opened door that leads to my destiny.
The perpetuity of changes in life is a proof that one is maturing and attaining triumph. Each step that he takes is a big leap of growth and strength. Another vision is being realized, another dream is made come true, and a new path is being laid out. There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing oneself advancing not in years, but in wisdom beyond his years.
True enough, the distance between life-changing moments and the mundane, depthless things is just… a time of silence.
Silence for grieving. For hurting. For encouraging oneself. For hoping. For believing. For falling down. For standing up once again. Silence for hearing the truth. For listening. For understanding. For being a coward. For being brave. For following the light. Silence for love. For seeing the truth all over the face of one’s love. For courageousness. For dreaming. For not giving up. For living… And continuing to overcome.
One can hear a lot more in silence than when there are sounds, or words. It is in quietness that one can hear a heartbeat, a whisper. And there, in the land that was promised, a still, small Voice is calling out… And only in serenity and stillness of the soul that one can hear it.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak… – Ecclesiastes 3:1-7
