Discipline of Silence! January 21, 2015

Silence, we think is absence of sound.

Silence is but a convenient label defining positively the human limitations. It’s not an end of sound, but the marking of farthest reach – the ultimate boundary of our hearing beyond which is the perimeter of animal kingdom, big and small. The sound from the flapping of butterflies wings, the conversations of ants, the whispers of mouse, they exist in its loudest form in the space of human silence.

That’s perhaps why Silence is also a humbling experience. Where the loudness stirs emotions, silence calms the commotion. Silence is an unknowing submission of ego, an unknown submission to our limitations, creating an unfathomable space to listen to the unheard sounds of untold words.

Silence is not absence of an sound. It is┬ávery much a form of sound that we don’t hear. In our silence, the others converse.



When Everything Looks Different January 20, 2015

old man at the beachI realize the distance I travelled in life when I measure the differences of what I am attracted to.

What was of great importance in a distant past – relationship or material possessions – are not so important as the pendulum of time oscillated through space of seasons.

What was less aware, or hardly given any attention gained value as it transformed from being in the present to the form of priceless antique – articles and relationship alike; school reunions became a trend!!

Today sound of life has mellowed to a gentle whisper; events does not surprise, excitements does not carry vibrant colours, aspirations are not counted in currencies but valued in unnamed yardstick of love, health, who you have than what you have. Even love has taken a back seat, and care is what matters most.

There’s no looking back when the distance ahead is nearing an end! The achievements of scaling hills and mountains are less important than focused slow efforts to remove the little rocks and thorns on the way. The laurels from running marathons for fame are less meaningful than the steps cut into half the pace taken to traverse the remaining distance.

It’s all different. You realize how well you enacted your role; you are on the stage, behind the curtains, and the audiences are all gone!
