In order to listen
You need to be silent
Same letters in each
Both used to teach..


When you pay attention
To the sound of silence
What was the sound
That sent this reference

What comes first
Silence or sound
In the absence of one 
The other is found

There is never silence
In the noise of thoughts
To observe you listen
In the mind’s hotspots

A quiet approach
Not knowing is fear
Avoiding the sound
The listener hears 

Before and after
It is in the middle
For silence observed
When noise is still

To listen here
You look for the silent
To turn off noise
Is to quiet the giant 

The noise in your mind
Without observing
Is forever the loudest
And always serving

To hear in the absence
Of noise confound
The fact that silence 
Makes a sound

For Peace of mind
You have to LISTEN
Rearrange words
And spell out SILENT

The mind at peace
Lives in the SILENT
The world in peace
Wants you to LISTEN

To listen we learn
Repeat the words
And talk to teach
What we observe

One cannot learn 
In silence alone
Without the sounds
We all do own

To listen to silence
And learn from sound
In the time it takes
To turn it around 


Some time in thoughts
We quietly chase
The voice of reason
That lives in this space


“What comes first
Silence or sound
In the absence of one 
The other is found”

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, a prolific writer sharing my words. In sharing I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower and provoke thinking. I stand for dignity in humanity. I am compelled to a vision that we are all here for a reason, life is like a deck of cards... “My cards. My deal. Life is learning the game!” #opism What is OPISM? I have come up with this term as my nick name is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctorine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism My Motto! “Dignity is Free” How I live...Embracing Dignity My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care. As one who has trained and coached, mentored and taught; it has become a passion within to witness and feel joy in the achievement and success of others that I have been associated with. I am a lifelong learner and have created and facilitated various training materials. It is through such experience that I discovered the power of positive feedback in both professional and personal manners. I am self disciplined, accountable, determined, humble, loyal and adaptive; but above all I value my integrity! I am a decent human being. It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.
