Turning Up the Noise to Drown Out the Noise

We live in a world of noise. It is deafening. But how is the world dealing with all this noise?

The noise of this world can drive a person crazy. All you have to do is turn on the news. The tragedies of the day dominate the newscasts and the headlines. Sometimes it’s unbearable to turn on the news because there is so much suffering. So people try to turn off everything and silence the noise.

But there’s a problem with this approach. It doesn’t work. If you live in complete isolation from the world you will drive yourself insane that way instead. You cannot turn off the noise of this world.

So instead what ends up happening is people turn up the noise to drown out the noise. They turn up the music, party harder, do more extreme things and live life louder. They try to anesthetize their pain. The noise of this world hurts so much because it is so relatable. But people cannot turn it off, so instead they try to numb it out by drowning it out. This can also lead to insanity.

So how can we live in this world without going insane? How can we live amidst the noise without becoming numb, either by trying to turn it off or drown it out?

We need a Savior. We need The Savior.
