Why silence is full of answers?
"The brain is actively internalising and evaluating information during silence. When you are not distracted by noise or goal-orientated tasks, there appears to be a quiet time that allows your conscious workspace to process things.
Silence as an answer to those who accuse us does not mean we believe they are right. Rather, kindness or silence as an answer simply means that we are wise enough to grasp this truth: A harsh, impulsive word is usually followed by regret. On the other hand, we don't ever have to explain the things we do not say.
Silence has many other benefits, like it does not escalate the fight between two people. If one is speaking and the other remains silent, there will be no argument and the anger of the other person will soon cool down and the fight will also end.
Being silent allows us to channel our energies. It gives us the clarity we need to calmly face challenges and uncertainty. The hour of silence I practice each morning, and encourage you to practice as well, can be a time for collecting our thoughts, training our minds, and deciding how we want to enter into the day.
Silence can be an indication of empathy. When we are really tuning in to how the other person is feeling about what they're saying, we're listening more to the tone of their voice, cadence and speed rather than the actual words, and so replying with words may not be the attuned response.
Silence Helps You Concentrate
One of the major reasons why silence has become an important part of everyday life is the ability to focus as the modern world and its various noises enter your brain all at once. The ability to focus on different tasks is often accompanied by a little background noise.
Essentially, the point of the silent treatment is to make the victim feel confused, stressed, guilty, ashamed, not good enough, or unstable enough so that they would do what the manipulator wants.
The silent treatment is a refusal to communicate verbally with another person. People who use the silent treatment may even refuse to acknowledge the presence of the other person. People use the silent treatment in many types of relationship, including romantic relationships.
Psychological benefits of silence can include enhanced creativity, focus, self control, self awareness, perspective and spirituality. Silence can be used both positively and negatively in communication, and thus can influence our relationships.
Francis Bacon said it this way, “Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom.” The reason why so many of us are under so much stress is because we haven't yet learned how to quiet our minds and embrace silence. We haven't yet learned to appreciate and see the value and the wisdom that come from being quiet.
