Each morning we wake up and unknowingly go to facebook. we drop some meaningful/meaningless words on the status or comment on others posts.We turn on Television and a train of words, chit-chatting flows on to our minds.
All social networking websites, blogs, micro-blogs websites are full of different types of words. There are numerous heaps of words which are being used by unaware minds.
Modern Human being is imprisoned by words. Man’s whole problem is Words now. Below language is the world of the animals and beyond language is the world of the gods. Between the two is the world of man, the world of language, words — philosophies, scriptures, theories and ideologies. The mind consists of words. Who thinks now before saying. They have internet, they have keyboard, they have right of expression!!
We can not see a rose because our mind is so hazy, full of thoughts and words. We want to utter as soon as possible.
Man is imprisoned by words. Man’s whole problem is language. Below language is the world of the animals and beyond language is the world of the gods. Between the two is the world of man, the world of language, words — philosophies, scriptures, theories and ideologies. The mind consists of words. The word is the brick that the palace of mind is made of, it is the stuff it is made of.
Slowly, slowly, one has to go on dropping the words and one has to enter into silence. And that is not difficult: once you start trying to move towards it, it starts happening. The reality is when all words have disappeared, when you are not thinking but you just are…when there is no thought cloud in the mind but pure awareness, unclouded, an unclouded sky. When there is no thought there is no trembling, no winds are blowing. All is tranquil and quiet. In that quietude, one penetrates reality. Reality cannot be thought about. You can see it but you cannot think about it. To think about it is to go far away from it, because whatsoever you think will be wrong. Thinking is wrong.
You see a rose. What can you think about it? The moment you say it is beautiful, you have gone far away from the rose, from its facticity, from its reality.
How many words we will speak Now? How much life we will ignore now?
Why have we become so insensitive towards Life, towards the miracles which are happening in each moment. How can we keep our children away from the beauty of each moment. Why we want to make them good at words when they can explore their best in Silence. How much garbage our mind can hold???
All Mankind badly needs silence now! We need to drop the words, We need to find ourselves again in the heaps of words.
We need to explore the beauty of Silence, We need to listen the song of Silence Now!
