Meditation: Silence is Golden

Have you ever fantasized about completely escaping the noise of the city and having no access to any distractions—books, writing materials, television, computers, cell phones? Have you ever wanted the noise to stop so you could just hear your own voice? Maybe you think that to achieve this you would have to travel to Nepal or Tibet?
