Why is Silence Deafening?

Guest writer for Wake Up World

One of our greatest fears is silence.

We run from it: in our lounge-rooms, in our cars, in our workplaces, in our conversations.

In every place, you will notice our habit of drowning out the dreaded silence with noise and stimulation.

It’s like the grim reaper or a dark omen that follows us around eternally.

Many of us don’t realize it.

Many of us live under a veil of oblivion, not realizing how afraid we are to be in silence and stillness with ourselves.

We will turn up our stereos. We’ll turn on our music or phones. We’ll turn on the radio or the TV.

We will find anything to fill that void of emptiness.

And constantly, we’ll pollute ourselves with noise and stimulants, that numb our minds so that we live our worlds in a thoughtless dream-like state.

Silence makes us uncomfortable.

We may even argue that it bores us to embrace that silence. But what really bothers us is ourselves: we don’t know what to do with ourselves, or what to think, or even who we are.
