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 the noise.
The noise I’m talking about is the noise that continually comes from the tv, the radio, newspapers, magazines, the internet, twitter and ourselves.
Noise that is meant to instill fear in everyone…, men, women, children.
Noise that incites anger and haterd.
Noise that distorts the truth. Noise that goes to the drumbeat of a war.
Noise that separates and pits people against one another.
Now, 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, there is no mental activity what so ever.
WE CAN START THAT PROTEST RIGHT NOW.
(20 seconds 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 just a reminder of what’s coming at us, each and every day, and what we can do. We can lower the volume, we can change the channel, or better yet, we can turn it off.
We can turn it off and focus on what’s inside of us, something that that noise will never, never, never, tell you.
And what’s inside each and evey 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.
The hope here is to assist in maintaining an awareness in the world that promotes Peace & Harmony, Joy & Happiness, Love & Compassion, Prosperity & Abundance, and Physical Well-Being.
The 20 seconds of silence, conducted here or anywhere else as a protest against the noise, is meant to be a reminder of what’s coming at us each and every day and what we can do.
