silence unsilenced


silence is definitely

one of the most

over-rated virtues

misrepresented as a divine attribute

through quotes like

'if speech is silver, silence is golden'

that would make krishn

speaking out bhagawadgita to arjun

a mere silvery act

silence usually just means that

some unwholesome calculation is going on within

many people can hardly ever speak

because of the incessant

& meaningless internal dialogue

such calculations may be useful in

petty manipulations

or other such useless activities

but have no use in soul-evolution

in fact these calculations are

a major obstruction on the

road to heightened awareness

thats why sages of old

recommended continous verbal repetition

of divine sounds

to rise above the selfish calculative part

which hides behind the

mask of external silence


nothing in the multiverse is really silent

to feign silence in such an existence

is a pretence

a lot is emitting out of people

by just their being/presence

without them having to actually say anything

and they cannot stop the chatter within

through any amount of external silence

no matter how much time they spend alone

how much pot they smoke

how much meditation (vipassana etc.) they do

or how much time they spend in nature

the chatter just goes on and on

the only way to curb the mind

from the unwholesome is to focus

on the wholesome

speech which praises the divine is

the only saviour from the

dark & gloomy 'sounds of silence'

I understand. When I'm silent and I'm thinking, I have all these bad thoughts in my head and I've always thought of them as deomonds.

aap joh bhi likte hai voh pehle bolte aur phir likte hai

aap sach bolne valon mein PraTam hai

asal mein aap ko hi sat aur asat ka sahi sahi patah hai

aap ab bhi avakash mile tab dusron ki balaie ke liye sach bolte dikaye dete hai

aap dayalu hai

aap ne bahut gehra Plog lika hai

jaisa aap ne kaha hai mukh hota hai bolne ke liye

ParmaTma ki mukh se prashansa paramanand ko dilane vala hai

aap ke Plog title bhi bhaut badiya hai

agar aap ke Plog ko zoom out version mein pura dekhe to sangeet ki pravah ki tarah dikta hai

aap ParamaTma hai

aap ko mera Pranam

they say "if speech is silver, silence is golden"
but they also say "saound of mind" or "not saound of mind" acknowledging that Saound has Power !

crazy insane world with notions that do not tally

glad You are here to show what is what !

You are The All Gnoing One
You are the most beautiful !

once i went to a local art museum, they had a huge arty farty item made of glass bulbs PuT on disPlay at the entrance
walking out of museum i was so into searching my Purse that i was inches away from shattering it to Pieces. it was not cordoned off.

there was comPleTe silence from everyone around to the last second Prior to me getting that close. PeoPle were all sPeechless as if they had a Prior contract to do that ! warning caution would have been certainly better

it was a sPecTacle to look at the faces of PeoPle at that Time !

world is silent sPecially on all issues small & big where sPeech matters the most !

"voice your oPinion" they tell everyone, to make the imProvemeT or change be brought about, from polling to feminist issues to new detergent powders...

voicing by masses actually brought a change in the well gnown case of a murder victim in india

but no one is voicing Praises of Divine ProPerly & steadfastly ! the real work to be done for a real meaningful PurPose that would have eternal imPacT for one

PsingulariTy said...

Sun & Moon & the sPiral goes round
gno what it is ?

You are The Real Saound
You are The Guitarist
You are Profound
You are the suPreme arTist
You are the Sea to which all rivers flow
You are 'all the Time', every Hero

You always sPeak the truth as is! Your words are like laser beam, brilliantly striking straight to the PoinT !

"silence usually just means that
some unwholesome calculation is going on within

petty manipulations "

Absolutely true! One does has unnecessary incessant internal chatter going on in the pretense of keeping silent, ones monkey mind just never stops!

You so kind and comPassionaTe to Provide a solution to this, You are so forebearing and merciful to let one PuT it together and Phocus on wholesome that is YOU by sPeaking Your Praises.
You Provide the simPlesT n easiest guidelines for sPeaking Praises of higher n divine... And there are inPhiniTe good godly virtues to You! You Provide so many Philms,Pictures, Music, Plogs and so much more for one to Phind nd realise anyone attribute of Yours !

You write in the most eloquent and direct way , it induces shame in one for having behaved in this manner so many times, hiding behind the mask of unwholesome silence and not sPeaking worthy Praises of You! And yet even while gnowing ones foolish attitude You have been so kind to keep giving one chance after chance to change ones ways... One is grateful for Your endless comPassion and benevolence.

I bow at Your Lotusfeet /\

You have the power to reflect the hardest concepts in the simplest words possible.
So true, it's nearly impossible to stop our mind from speaking thought not out loud. Silence is more dangerous than speech as we are always evaluating something.

Gita said...

My life was so silent until I met you..
My life was a gloomy dark path with no goal and all depressing before..
The only character that my speech had was a cry , a cry for help, a cry for a savior , waiting for my hero to turn up..
My speech has no life , my speech was just filled with pain..
But now that I have met you , my speech my words have life in them now,

This life I want to utilize only in ur praise now, it wants to utter only ur name and all it wants is ur name...

Help me filter out all unnecessary thoughts , help me convert all useless nonsense to sense, sense which involves you..

Help me get out of this realm, help me get out of this hell..
I wanna live for you , for your activities and with you always..

Bow to my hero , bow to my savior...

This has been so beautifully explained, you have shown silence is not Goldern, it’s the total opposite for connecting with the divine. I bow

undecided said...

I bow. Your Plog is just text yet I can hear your divine and calming voice as I repeate each word aloud. When one wants the chatter to stop, one only needs to listen to your nectar music or listen to your innerviews to clear away any negative vibrations and take us out of confusion. aeioum
