People sleepwalk through their lives for so long that in sleepiness, they would simply think silence is just an absence of noise, as if it is a negative thing. On the contrary, silence has positive qualities, a positive of sound and through mediation, you can distinguish the difference between a silence of your body and a silence of your mind. In fact, you see people get angry, frustrated, jittery, fearful, all kind of mixed emotion when they encounter silence. It is perceived as something negative, empty, such an agony to bare within themselves. However, silence is a totally different phenomenon and utterly positive. It is existential, not empty, and overflowing with rhythm of life itself. Silence is a reality within you, within I, always present in everyone but we never look into it. All of our senses are extrovert and meant to explore the outside world. But there is sixth sense also, which is asleep because we never use it. And no society, no culture, no educational system helps people to make it active. In the East, we call it “third eye” which is inward; hence, just as there is a way of looking in, of hearing in, and of smelling in. Just as there are five senses moving outward, there are five senses of moving inward. In all, human has ten senses, but the first sense that starts the inner journey is the third eye, and then other senses start opening up. Your inner own world has its own taste, it’s own fragrance, it’s own light that is immensely and eternally silent.
There is nothing more beautiful, more blissful than silence. Look at nature, the moon reflects in the water, and if the water of your mind is silent, then the moon reflects in the water is a tremendous phenomenal experience of joy and beauty. It is your state of silence. It is you without the ego and its problems. It is you without any question and without any answer either. Simply silent and there is joy which can transcend in silence. It is your light. It is your delight. Learn silence. So go on experiencing for yourselves if you have not and at least with your friends, with your lovers, with your family, with your fellow travelers, sit in silence sometimes. Do not go on gossiping, do not go on talking. Stop talking, and not only on the outside, stop the inner talk. Be in an interval. Just sit, doing nothing, just being present to each other, soon you will start finding a new way to communicate and that is the right way. Start communicating through silence sometimes such as holding hands of your friend, sit silently. Just look at the moon, feel the moon, and both feel it silently. And see, a communion happens; not only communication, but a communion. Your hearts start beating in the same rhythm. You start feeling the same space. You start feeling the same joy. You start overlapping each other’s existence. And that is communion, you have said without saying anything, and there will be no misunderstanding, no agony of your inner being. There will be never any noise that only you can reach within and that is the silence of your heart. It is a song itself, without words and without sounds. It is only out of this silence that the followers of love can grow. It is this silence that becomes the garden of all nature beauty. Meditation, and only meditation, is the key to open the doors of your own being. ❤️
