Words and Silence

Popular belief is that only the spoken Words are heard but if you really want to increase the effectiveness of your voice then Silence is the most powerful tool..!!

As Margaret Weis rightfully says “Words can never fully say what we want them to say, for they fumble, stammer, and break the best porcelain. The best one can hope for is to find along the way someone to share the path, content to walk in silence, for the heart communes best when it does not try to speak.”

More often we expect from the ones who matter to us a lot, to say it in Words what they mean to say just because we want to "hear" them for we believe that these words transform to feelings but in reality it is the profound enigmatic Silence in the company of true love and concern that evokes in us the feelings we so much yearn for. Only after one has used words as a medium and experienced it's limited power is one truly ready to experience and appreciate the unlimited power of silence. It takes a lot of maturity and understanding to realize how intimate a connection we share with Silence deep down in the pure layers of our inner consciousness. It keeps unveiling to us in so many mysterious ways depending upon the circumstances. It is amazing how expressive Silence could be..!!

In our day to day lives, we continuously let heaps of words, seep into us through our five senses and pile up on our brain thereby cluttering it. Some off these we evaluate and react to; others we just eschew. We are designed as such that words touch most of us only superficially and hence the colossal damage in the form of misinterpretation and misunderstandings which have a cascading effect on our lives. It takes only the intellectual DNA's to interpret words for their true meaning and essence.

Au contraire to popular definitions, Silence is not absence of noise it has a realm of it own with a light that can only been seen with the inner eyes. It is present in everyone - its just that most never bother look within. Once connected with this, it helps us handle the most difficult decisions of our lives with a clarity of circumstances and pros n' cons like never before. If you have a gift of the gab, learn to speak only when you have to else adopt silence. Pause when necessary and when you have nothing to say at all, SAY NOTHING. Such approaches will have outlasting impact. Learn to use Silence - It is a powerful tool in many contexts.

Silence is not a sign of weakness or loneliness
it's a powerful weapon of souls with fortitude
it has its own energy, substance n' style
which it bestows on us, by condescending us
by showing us its pristine inner light..!!
