Time + Silence = Tranformation
There was a time when ten minutes of silence would have been excruciating for me to bear. For in this silence I heard deafening screams. I felt immeasurable suffering. At that time, my mind broke. Unknowingly, I became a traveller on the road to wholeness; to the Self. I had no idea what this undertaking entailed nor did I know what it was called when my journey began. I was asleep.
In no way am I claiming that I have arrived at my destination. I think my life will be a lifelong journey. How is it possible to ever stop learning; to stop growing emotionally and spiritually?
Now the silence beckons me. For, in silence, lies transformation; a connection to others, to spirituality, to the Self. In fact, there are times when I have to MAKE myself leave the silence and interact with the world. I have to keep my life balanced. I have to try to stay centered. It is in this state where I find the most serene peace.
My goal is to not allow negativity take away my peace. This is much easier said than done. But, I do believe I can accomplish this with determined practice.
