Silence.

I took a gamble off late. Well not exactly a gamble, but undertook something that I was curious about, though don’t quite believe in. I tried out a new form of meditation/breathing exercise – if I may call it. Now let me begin by telling you that I look at meditation as something almost as close to God – unattainable, invisible, dubiously doubtful and probably very strong. So I got into it, tried some of their breathing techniques, learnt to shut my eyes and kick away every other thought, learnt to relax – or atleast tried to. It took some effort, a lot of nodding and prodding. The result was slow, slightly calming and I’d say – not completely ineffective. And then came the commitment bit. One which every man slays. Once every day – takes half an hour of your day. 

Now, I did take lessons from the exercise – personal lessons. Some were predeveloped earlier, some were tweaked and sharpened through the exercise. And some, I probably still am ignorant about. Having zero expectations helped. I’m still not a committed girl though. Somehow taking the lesson seemed easier than following the regime. Maybe I’d turn into an ubercool zen chick if I follow it. Maybe I’d lose my head or follow mystic saints to the path of enlightenment and utmost nirvana. Or maybe I’d be just fine – with or without it. (There I’ve covered all options) A small bit of mystery though – How much did it help?
Wow, should there be a research on this or what?!

  1. Well you missed one possibility, being conviced that you have been duped, you decide not be the only one and start capturing people around and force – convince – coax them to do it too till they too start feeling that they have been duped!Just praying that this is only a very very remote possibility and you may find peace through silence..btw – did you ever try to listen and read the "Silence" ?

  2. well for me – silence IS peace.. look at space.. can it be more peaceful?then again, there are silences that are deafening..and I love it when someone reads into or listens to my silences and responds it with silent yet powerful emotion. The moment we put words to emotions, we create a boundary and limit to it; the same emotion can and does express zillion times more when its expressed in silence, as it not "bound" by words..
