What is Silence?
Why talk about 'Silence'
For all talk of silence is Noise
Awareness reveled to Me
When I acted to solve the conflict
Of the 'known' from the 'Known'
All talk of silence is Noise
Helping others perceive the 'Known'
You get caught in the 'known'
Trying to modify 'known'
Making others aware of 'Known'
Can it bring an end
to their Misery and Sorrow?
Can our Actions
Arising from Conflict in any form
Inner or Outer
Conscious or Unconscious
Ever lead to others Enhancement?
To me Understanding at times
Comes in a flash
Action in Inaction
cannot be perceived by all
I 'Perceive' it immediately
While others don't even See it
How can they Perceive what I See
When it is not part of their Consciousness?
My Inaction in Action
Cannot be perceived by all
So my Actions from the 'Known'
Naturally leads to Conflict in their mind
For my 'Known' is 'unknown' for them
To avoid this conflict
I must Not alter the 'known'
I must Not change the 'known'
Nor attempt to make others Aware of my 'Known'
I simply remain Aware of the 'Known'
Let who-so-ever come in my Awareness
Let him part the way he is
Or with a sense of Enhancement
But never with a sense of being diminished
You are not aware 'Silence' is Unity
So you seek silence of many types
Silence of environment
Silence of speech
Silence of taste
Silence of senses
Silence of "Raga, Dvesha, Moha"
Silence of the mind, and so on and on
Your focus is always on 'Silence of ' something
Be it 'some-thing' gross or subtle
It's this objectification of silence, that leads you to 'Act'
In your perception now, this 'something' is 'Noise'
You the 'subject' and that 'something' as the 'object'
Once again you are caught up in the world of dualities
Do you still hope to find 'Unity' through such 'Acts'?
The silence you 'know' is absence of 'something'
The silence I 'Know' encompasses everything
To 'Know' what this silence is
'Silence' is the meditation
What kind of a relationship can there be
Between one, only aware of the 'known'
with the One, aware of the 'Known'?
What is the relationship of 'Such' a Mind
to a mind that is 'Not such' ?
In such relationship there can be
Only communication but No Communion
0nly when both 'See'
At the same 'Level'
At the same 'Time'
There can be Communion
So what does 'Such' Mind do?
It remains 'Aware', in his 'Mauna'
'Silence' is the only Way
For he Knows
All talk from Silence is just noise for others!!
