13: The Fear of Silence & Moving Towards a More Mindful Existence

There is a tendency to avoid silence - TV, Podcasts, Music, Books, Movies, Social Media etc are all great as entertainment and education, but they can become an addiction, serving as an effective block against painful ruminations of the mind.

In this episode, Zachary reveals how he discovered his obsession with avoiding his own thoughts, the addictive pull of social media as well as how creativity can be stifled by too much external input.

"If you are always listening to other peoples words, you are always having an external person influence your thinking process ... by allowing for silence, you get to discover what you truly believe and feel about things."
