What to Make of the Silence
It is in the still moments that determine how far you can be propelled in life. What do you do when no one else is watching? Are you comfortable enough to be by yourself? These are important questions to ask considering that in life there are a lot of times where you may feel too afraid to be alone. Say that you are about to go in for a job interview. There are a dozen of other people who want the job just as bad as you. Maybe they have more experience than you do. Do you let that phase you? The best thing to do is let the silence speak for itself. You may ask what I mean by that. What I mean is when everyone else is sizing up the competition, the best thing to do is to center yourself, and get quiet. By focusing on yourself, you can hone in on making sure that you are your only competition.
I do not mean that in a “the world revolves around me and only me” way, but in a way where you do not have to focus on beating everyone else out on the job. That will drive you crazy you should focus only on making sure that whatever you set out to do today, is better than what you used to do yesterday. The best way to begin living out this new ideology is to put it into practice slowly. When you take the initiative to create short term goals, you can achieve more by having a build up to the end result. The catch is there is no end result. Once you get to where you are going, you just continue to reach higher and grow further. This April, Resurrection Sunday is among us. Christ died on the cross for our sins and during that dark period when he was buried and rose again from the dead, there was stillness in the silence. The sun would not shine on that day, and the followers of Christ who mourned for him did not know what to make of the silence until he rose again and they realized that their faith was bigger than themselves.
Jam 4 the Month: Let It Be by The Beatles
“Oh, let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
And there will be an answer, let it be” This month we celebrate Resurrection Sunday, and Christ’s cruciﬁxion on the cross for our sins. Keep this in mind when you do not know what to make of the silence just Let It Be.”
