Sounds of Silence
by Chief Joseph and John Cali
I’m blessed to live in a rural,
remote area of Wyoming, far from the racket and rush of the city. It
wouldn’t suit everyone, but it’s perfect for me.
One of the many things I love about Wyoming is the
intimate closeness we have with the natural world. We’re literally
surrounded by all things wild and wonderful — the beasts, the
birds, the mountains, the vast open spaces.
This time of year is particularly beautiful. The aspen
are amber, the skies are blue, the sagebrush is gray, the air is
crisp and cool. The mountains are already snow-capped. The geese
are flying down from the north. The deer and elk are coming down
from the high country.
In the vastness of this land I feel closer to God than
I’ve ever felt in any church. Or anywhere else. I love it all.
But what I love best is the silence — the sounds of
silence. Here’s Chief Joseph.
Here’s Chief Joseph.
You need more silence in your world. We don’t mean just
outer silence — an end to the raging wars, the political turmoil,
the highway traffic, etc. Those you can do little about. They just
But you also need inner silence — silence in your hearts,
minds and bodies. To use John’s words, the “racket and rush” of
the cities are taking their toll on your hearts, minds and bodies.
We’re not saying you should abandon the cities. After
all, that’s where most of you live. But in the midst of your
cities and all their distractions, you need to find your own quiet
places of silence.
One of the best ways to do that is regularly practicing
meditation. A simple, yet powerful, way to meditate is to
consciously breathe. Focus on your breathing, in and out. Just a
few minutes a day can be enough.
You don’t have to do “formal” meditations. Almost
anything that relaxes you and which you enjoy can be a meditation.
Spending time with a loved one, with a beloved pet, walking among
the trees or on a beach. Anything you enjoy and which brings you a
sense of peace and quiet.
We know you lead busy lives, even if you live in places
like Wyoming where John is.
It is good for you to be busy doing the things you do.
But it is not good to be so overwhelmed by, or engulfed in the
world “out there” that you forget the world “in here” — in your
hearts and souls.
You will find it much easier to face the world “out
there” when you come from a place of peace “in here.”
If you create your own realities — and all of you do —
then you will create much more powerfully what you want to create
when you come from that peaceful, powerful place within.
It’s vital that you have this place within — your haven
of peace, your safe harbor. When you do, you’ll know a greater
sense of peace and power than you’ve ever known in this lifetime.
Listen to the sounds of silence. Then you will remember
your way Home.
