Shhh shhh !!!the sound that irritated me the most when I was a little girl because I had so much to say ,so much to express and now I wait for those moments where there is only silence ,those moments where the only sound I can hear is that of a wind or of a falling water from the waterfall of Buddha placed at the enterance of my house .
What is silence ??? And while I was pondering over this ; The universe instantly replied to my question as if he was silently observing my web of thoughts.
*To be controlled by moods is to be a part of matter.
If you keep your mind on the resolve never to lose your peace, then you can attain godliness. Keep a secret chamber of silence within yourself, where you will not let moods, trials, battles, or inharmony enter. Keep out all hatred, revengefulness, and desires. In this chamber of peace God will visit you.*
Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda
I require the pill of silence more than anybody else after becoming a mother and especially after my child 's holidays have begun
I am sure all the mothers will agree with me on this thought.From the time my little one gets up till the time she goes back to the abode of goddess Nidra ..I have to talk constantly as there are so many queries that the tiny mind has which needs answers or there are so many Huckleberry Finn actions that they sometimes need a roar of a lioness.The resultant effect of the entire situation is that I loose my peace of mind.
Thus the message of Shri Paramhansa Yogananda is very important for me because I need to become a true seeker of silence and should create that chamber of silence in my heart where I can always run and find solace when I am tired of the maddening crowd around me .
I know what I will get in that silence will improve my quality of life .It will give me an energy and strength to carry my daily rituals with more ease and perfection .It will enhance my creative skills .I will slowly become a dove mummy from the lioness mummy which I am at present.I know the pill of silence will act as a tranquilser on my monkey mind and the most precious gift that the moment of silence will offer me will be unspeakable..yes it will connect me to my source ..my eternal love ..my eternal self ..my universe..my God ..my inner being .
"It is only in the silence that you can hear the footsteps of God "
