Most of us are surrounded by sounds throughout the entire day. Many people seem to have grown uncomfortable with what’s going on in their own minds and drown it out with the constant presence of noise. Vijay Eswaran says this is a mistake and quietly listening to your own thoughts is a very important part of life.
In addition to describing the importance of an hour of quiet each day, Vijay Eswaran also talks about other subjects in “In the Sphere of Silence”. This includes really listening to other people, making sure that you don’t speak until you’ve thought about what you’re going to say, and making and following up on to-do lists each day.
In the book he provides quotes from famous historical people whose wisdom can still be used today. This includes the Prophet Mohammed, Aristotle, Mother Theresa, and Keats among others.
Vijay Eswaran breaks up how he does his hour of silence in his book into steps. The first step is to think about what you did the day before.
This includes how he could have taken actions in a better way and, importantly, why he didn’t do so. In the second step he writes down his agenda for the day, and in the third part writes down his goals for the next week, month, and then next five years.
Step four for the hour of quiet includes reading for 15 minutes, including spending the last five minutes writing about what you just learned. Finally, the last step is to communicate with your God in whichever way you do so.
