Enjoying KEMOSABE Gourmet Coffee To The “Sounds Of Silence”

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 8/31/2016

This morning as I was sitting quietly in my kitchen enjoying a cup of my favorite gourmet coffee, Kemosabe french vanilla gourmet coffee, I began to think about the concept of silence.

From the time we wake up to the time we go to bed we are constantly bombarded with man made sounds. Phones ring, radio play, televisions blare, machines operate, children play and conversations are continuous. Everywhere noise is amidst. This everyday environment leads one to ask, have we as a society created a world that is at odds with the silence of our very creation; the silent universe, the silence of  life’s development within the womb or the silence that nature provides when standing in the woods and gazing up at the stars? Is the stress and hostility we experience everyday a function of us being at odds with the silence of our inner self?

So how do we cope with the people in conversation who pummel you with rapid fire words to the point that their behavior reminds you of one of those talking dolls that speaks continuously until the end of the string recoils into their neck? Perhaps the answer is in silence; after all people never expect silence they expect dialogue. Through experience I found there are two effective ways to communicate using the power of silence. First, inject prolonged silence into your conversation when your conversation follows a statement you made with a tone to it-What do you suggest? People instinctively feel uneasy when a conversation turns silent-they are programmed to expect dialogue. Second, conscious silence can be effective through body gestures.

Most people do not conscientiously attempt to inject silence into their lives on a continuous basis to obtain “peace of mind”. The majority of us when exhausted simple state, “It feels good to just rest and hear no noise,” or words to that effect. While other’s find solace in prayer, meditation or simply enjoying their morning gourmet coffee in a tranquil setting.

Now that I have enjoyed my moment of silence while drinking my Kemosabe french vanilla gourmet coffee it time to face the noise of the world and go to work.
