20 Seconds of Silence:
A Protest Against The Noise

At This Moment In Time,
We would Like To Stage A Protest

This Is A Protest Against Noise.

The noise I am talking about is the noise that continually Comes from the TV, the radio, newspapers, magazines, The Internet, Twitter, and ourselves.
Noise that goes to the drumbeat of war,
Noise that breeds ignorance’
Noise that stirs up hatred, inciting anger and violence,
Noise that is meant to instill fear into everyone…
Men, Women, and Children.
Noise that distorts the truth,
Noise that separates and creates walls between people,
Noise that pits human beings against one another…
Man against man, country against country.
And these noises can always be found…
Coming from the TV, the radio, newspapers, magazines,
The internet, Twitter, and even ourselves.
The way we stage this protest…
Is for 20 Seconds, we just deal with some silence.
But the key to this protest,…
Is that during this 20 Seconds of Silence,
The Key is…that there is complete silence.
Meaning…no mental activity what so ever.
(After 20 seconds has elapsed)
I would like to thank you, for participating with me in this protest against the noise.

The Power of Silence Is Golden

This protest is a reminder,
Of what’s coming at us, each and every day
And what we can do.
We can change the channel,
We can lower the volume
Or better yet, we can turn it all off
We can turn it off and
Focus on what’s inside each and every one of us,
Something that that noise
Will never, never, never tell you.
And what’s inside each and every one of us is…
Some peace and harmony,
Joy and happiness,
Love and compassion,
Prosperity and abundance,
And physical well-being.
It’s all inside each and every one of us.
But… If we continue day in and day out,
Listening to, soaking up, digesting
And believing in all of this noise.
We’ll Beg TO Differ.


Alan Watts’ ideas and philosophy have primarily eastern roots which through his talks and lectures he ever so eloquently presents to a western audience. In this video Alan Watts talks about the continuous chatter that goes on in our minds. He explains to his audience what all they could experience (or not experience) if they simply stopped talking to themselves. Alan Watts also explain the real purpose of meditation and the process one can undertake to reach a meditative state.
