Listen to yourself. Silence the voices all around you. People will come by and shake the snow globe that is your world: A critical comment, some idle gossip, a slammed door, and the snow starts swirling. Be calm, be quiet. Let it all swirl. It will all settle and you’ll discover that the treasure inside remains steadfast and strong. There’s a true place for everyone. Yours doesn’t belong to anyone else.

Silence is critical to self-actualization. Not only to calm the constantly yakking–and even screaming–voices inside of us, but also to shut out the roar of the world. Today’s quote reminds us of this.
