Rejuvenating power of silence

Nirvesh:

I was recently hired as a news reporter for a local television station. The
job position I had of being a News Reporter was quite demanding and
took up a large extent of my time. For a lot of the time spent on the job,
my mental energy was depleted rapidly on a daily basis which caused
me to be quite tired both physically and mentally very regularly.
I wanted the feeling of being completely relaxed and on a vacation
without actually going on a vacation, and going to the movies or looking
at television never struck me as truly relaxing. I wanted to feel
something that relaxed as well as rejuvenated my energy. I realized
whenever I got home from work I would mostly enjoy and prefer a
peaceful silent evening, so that led me to understand, I just wanted and
longed for that peace and silence as it felt unimaginably great reflecting
on the past day in silence.
Physical outer silence was important, but not as important as silencing
the mind of the day’s problems. Every evening afterwards I made time
to go into silence at least for half hour and feel my energy being
replenished whilst my mind is cut free from the clutter of problems. The
practice of meditation/reflection helped me greatly in controlling the
mind as well as decreasing the large amount of waste thoughts I would
usually have causing me mental tiredness.
After some time, I left my job as a News Reporter to pursue other
endeavors. Upon leaving, the head of news for the department I was
working in said to me, I would truly miss your positive energetic
vibrations. That statement made me realize that the power of silence
rejuvenates your power as well as sends vibrations wherever you go.

Nirvan:

As a University student, I have a lot of responsibilities which
can be quite tiring at times. A couple days ago, I had my classes to
attend as well as cater to my responsibilities of overseeing the running of
a social club I am in charge of at the University. These events demanded
a lot of my time and energy. By mid-day my energy level was on empty
and I had only 5 minutes before my class lecture. I sat in a quiet room
alone. I closed my eyes, took 3 deep breaths and ceased the constant
racing of thoughts in my mind. In this silence, every breath felt like a
wave of renewed energy. From then, every problem began to show
solutions, every thought became positive and powerful all because I took
the time to stop, observe my thought pattern and steer them the way I
wanted.
