Spirituality from Daily Word: “In the Silence” (Espiritualidad de la Palabra Diaria “En el Silencio”)

In the Silence

I rest in the Silence.

After a busy day, my body may want to rest, while my mind continues to process or replay events. But beneath the noise of my mind lies a constant source of silence that is always available to me. Regardless of what is happening outwardly, when I enter into the Silence within me, I experience a peaceful calm.

I close my eyes and allow my attention to move from my thoughts to the presence of God within me, dropping deeper into stillness as though sinking into the water. Just as sounds become muffled in that vacuum, outside noise becomes muted as I deepen my awareness of God. In the Silence, I am free from the noise of my thoughts; I am free from anxiety, stress, and fear. I rest in the Silence.

He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm.—Mark 4:39

En el Silencio

Descanso en el Silencio.

Después de un día atareado, puede que mi cuerpo desee descansar pero mi mente permanece atribulada. Si eso ocurre, recuerdo que debajo del ruido de la mente yace una fuente de quietud siempre disponible para mí. Sin importar lo que ocurra externamente, en el Silencio siento calma y paz.

Cierro los ojos y permito que mi atención pase de mis pensamientos a la presencia de Dios en mí. Voy cada vez más profundamente a la quietud de la Presencia, como si me sumergiera en un lago cristalino. El ruido de la vida se desvanece a medida que me sumerjo en la conciencia de Dios. En el Silencio, me libero del murmullo de mis pensamientos, de la ansiedad, del estrés y del temor. Descanso en el Silencio.

Jesús se levantó y reprendió al viento, y dijo a las aguas: «¡Silencio! ¡A callar!» Y el viento se calmó, y todo quedó en completa calma.—Marcos 4:39
