Darkness – The Mystery and The Magic

It is the Season of Advent which always Coincides with Winter Solstice. My Advent Reflections have been many. This familiar song brings many of those reflections to life. May we use the lyrics to speak to you during this season of darkness. May we find our voice this season, speaking for those who cannot speak. May we open our ears to listen and respond, rather than react. Let the Silence Speak to You …Do not ignore the voice deep within you. Do not let it be the cancer that wants to drown us. What do you need to do in 2020 to make a Difference?

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silenceAnd in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence”Fools” said I, “You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silenceAnd the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, “The words of the prophetsAre written on the subway walls
And tenement halls”
And whisper’d in the sounds of silenceSource: LyricFindSongwriters: Paul SimonThe Sound of Silence lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group

Life is a series of choices. The choice are up to us. Choices are not easy nor simple, and most of them are made without much thought. This Holiday Season allow your inner self to awaken and choose from the heart.

The Light Within The Darkness is Only Seen by the Heart
