“Pause, Breathe, Witness. Be the silent, objective observer–watch and listen–pause in the gaps between thoughts, words, sounds.” ~ Lisa Pearlman #PearlsOfZen
Interestingly enough, after tweeting this “Pearl of Zen” today, I stumbled upon a random blog post that expressed the same truth…reposting it below…

“Only the inner silence is yours.
No-one gave it to you.
You were born with it and you will die with it
Thoughts have been given to you;
You have been conditioned to them.”
As I bathe in solitude, alone in the vastness of nature, a feeling of serenity washes over me. With every cleansing breath, I move further away from Self and settle deeper into a peaceful silence. The truth and all knowingness, the essence of pure consciousness, is all that remains. © Lisa Pearlman 4/8/12
