Silence heals. Silence is like a mirror. Everything is clear. The mirror does not blame or criticize but helps me to see things as they are, releasing me from all types of wrong thinking. Silence revives the original peace of the self – a peace that is innate, divine and when invoked ever-flowing.

A stage of deep silence is a stage free from desires. Since desires cannot be eliminated completely, there should be only one desire, which replaces all other desires – that is the link with the Supreme. Desire that I want to experience the highest bliss. I want to realize myself. It is desire that motivates us to action – mental or physical. Even my effort for attaining that stage of silence must be born from the desire to realize my original state – one of silence.

Silence is an opportunity to rest in the lap of my own greatness. You must remember to care for yourself with special attention you would accord to any great soul. Silence is an inner space of learning. When I do not understand something, I continue to hold on to it. When learning has occurred, I can release it and move on. Silence is a discipline, not of doing, but of being.

Silence provides the opportunity for me to identify the qualities in myself that have the capacity to transform me. In silence I can connect to the highest quality of my lightest, clearest thinking. In silence I can listen to the call of God, the call of nature, the call of others in need. When I elevate my thoughts to a higher level of consciousness, I maybe looking at the word, but my inner experience is of connection with God. So my vision a benediction, a blessing, a silent current good wishes and spiritual power.

Silence is not lack of communication. This is a subtle language that connects us to one another through the eyes, with a smile, or a gesture. The language of the soul is the language of the eyes. Fluency in this subtle language calls for our ability to observe the small details of life. As we develop this subtle language, we find that we are less dependent on the mechanical device that can connect us but that can also make us feel more separate. “Dhristi” : The vision of love and good wishes one soul has for another.

One of the true gifts in a busy life is an extended period of silence, a time when we intentionally turn our attention away from the rush of conversations and commitments, images and messages, and lists and obligations, and quietly attune ourselves to an inner space.
