Does Silence evoke something in you?
I recall my childhood days when All I did was play and stare at the line of ants and wonder how they were so efficient.
There were days when I used to lose track of time and my mother used to come and break me out of my reverie!
I found solace in the joy of being by myself.
At school, I was labeled as this quiet child who doesn’t speak a word.
This was something I took offense at but then I was happy with the myself so it didn’t matter much. I used to speak when I was spoken to and didn’t get caught up in endless chatter.
But then as I grew I got lost in the workings of the society. It dared me to speak up and be an individualist etc. etc.
Well there I was caught up in the manipulative workings of the civilization.
And the bottom line I wasn’t happy all the time except for a few occasions.
It is only in the recent years that I realized, I was giving much importance to the external things rather than my inner well-being.
The Tide has changed and my main priority is getting in touch with my inner space and growing as a person with that foundation.
This journey gets me back to the times when I was a kid; always joyful!
Now I am joyful every moment and it is a beautiful inner journey which keep me up and about my life!
Being lost in the Silence and stillness is something that I get into quite naturally now, thanks to Yoga and Meditation!
Have you experienced the inner journey?
