Silence is a place, beyond mind. When mind ceases to exist, one experience silence.
To live out of silence is an art. An art is an expression, in any form. To live out of silence is an art & a human has to learn the art before it expresses himself through silence.
To live out of silence is a skill. A skill needs to be developed. It’s not a gift, but it is developed with practice. Once we have practiced enough, we can live with it all the moments of our life.
To learn silence is to learn to fall in love with our self. We look for love in others, when we don’t know our self. To fall in love with our self, we should know our self from within. To know our self, one should learn to be comfortable with him.
When a man is born, he is a bud from inside. That bud needs to be nourished & cultivated from time to time. If we don’t take care of the bud, it will die & perish, but if it’s nourished in a right way, it will flourish into a flower, & will spread his fragrance, all over the place.
Nobody can blossom from outside. We can only grow from inside. Howsoever, hard we try outside, we cannot blossom from outside.
Life exists inside us. It happens, inside out. If we search for life, at a wrong place, we will only have a by-product of it.
All the outside world is the by-product of the inside world. We try to look for the essence in the by-product, but we will not find anything. We grow & evolve from inside. All the outside growth is possible, working from inside.
Life seems to be struggle in the outside world because we forget to look inside. When the inside world is a mess, all the outside world looks like a mess.
When the mind thinks too many thoughts, & we look at the outside world, from that mind, then even a single activity looks like a chaos. The problem is not with the outside activity, but from where do you see that activity.
At night, whatever chaos happened in our life, but when we wake up in the morning, with our peaceful mind, the whole world seems different, & the things happened at the previous night seems clear.
Your whole life, you focus on manifesting life, but you miss to understand the mind, which is the source of all manifestation.
Silence is possible through meditation, & meditation can happen, only if we learn, how to meditate. Knowledge about meditation helps the mind to understand, how meditation is done.
Once we know, how to go about the meditation, it becomes easier to understand our mind.
Our mind creates thoughts. It’s a box from where different thoughts originate, at a rapid pace, & before we try to understand, what is happening, with our life, we get carried away by our thoughts.
When we slow down the pace of our thoughts, through meditation, we can read our thoughts, & the movement of our thoughts.
Mind serves us with different quality of thoughts. As the pace of our thoughts gets reduce, our mind serves us with the quality of thoughts. More & more we reach into the space of silence, better the quality of our thoughts become.
All the activities of the day depend on upon the quality of thoughts. The activities of the day define our life. If the quality of thoughts is good, the quality of life is good. The quality of thoughts is improved with meditation.
A person can go deep in silence, & create the world, the way he wishes to desire, in the outside world. Life is a choice, & one can only realize this, if he designs his life in silence, & live to create it accordingly.
To learn silence, it requires a sincere & dedicated practice. Anything can be fun in life, but before we reach the level of fun, it demands a high level of practice, & sincere dedication towards it with each passing day.
If we don’t bath regularly, we start smelling bad, in the same way, if we don’t practice each day our craft, we start losing our grip on the craft.
“Silence is the language of god, all else is poor translation.” ― Rumi”
If we really want to live closer to god, silence is the only way. The real growth of life is a vertical growth. We grow vertically inside, & the same spreads horizontally in the outside world. Silence helps us to grow vertically.
We only lack anything, if we choose to grow horizontally. When we grow vertically, we are always in aligned with the law of nature, & we never see anything missing in life.
” If you go on looking for perfection, you will always have something to be perfected. The perfection is an illusion of mind.”
When we live outside, we create things in the outside world, without knowing its base. When we don’t the base of the thing, we always live out of fear, collapsing our outside world.
Silence is a base of all the existence. With silence grows awareness. With awareness, we can see things clearly, & we make correct decisions in all the situations, of our life.
With silence, a knowing gets develop in a person. Wisdom comes from silence. Knowledge is from the past, but the wisdom is for the moment, to carry us in the future.
“Yoga is the cessation of the movements of the mind. Then there is abiding in the Seer’s own form.” ― Patanjali, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali”
