The Growth in Silence

The Growth In Silence

Meditation is not an Indian method; it is not simply a technique. You cannot learn it. It is a growth: a growth of your total living, out of your total living. Meditation is not something that can be added to you as you are. It cannot be added to you; it can only come to you through a basic transformation, a mutation. It is a flowering, a growth. Growth is always from the total; it is not an addition. Just like love, it cannot be added to you. It grows out of you, out of your totality. You must grow towards meditation.

The Power of Silence

Silence usually is understood to be something negative, something empty, an absence of sound, of noises. This misunderstanding is prevalent because very few people have ever experienced silence. All that they have experienced in the name of silence is noiselessness. But silence is a totally different phenomenon. It is utterly positive. It is existential, it is not empty. It is overflowing with a music that you have never heard before, with a fragrance that is unfamiliar to you, with a light that can only be seen by the inner eyes. It is not something fictitious; it is a reality, and a reality which is already present in everyone—just we never look in.

Discovering Your Inner World

Your inner world has its own taste, has its own fragrance, has its own light. And it is utterly silent, immensely silent, eternally silent. There has never been any noise, and there will never be any noise. No word can reach there, but you can reach. Your very center of being is the center of a cyclone. Whatever happens around it does not affect it. It is eternal silence: days come and go, years come and go, ages come and pass. Lives come and go, but the eternal silence of your being remains exactly the same—the same soundless music, the same fragrance of godliness, the same transcendence from all that is mortal, from all that is momentary.

Becoming One with Silence

It is not your silence. You are it. It is not something in your possession; you are possessed by it, and that’s the greatness of it. Even you are not there, because even your presence will be a disturbance. The silence is so profound that there is nobody, not even you. And this silence brings truth, and love, and thousands of other blessings to you.

Experience the growth in silence. Embrace the transformation that comes from within. Meditation is not a technique to be learned, but a journey to be undertaken. Allow yourself to be immersed in the positive power of silence, where the music, fragrance, and light of your inner world await. Let go of the misconceptions and embrace the reality of silence, the eternal stillness that remains unchanged amidst the passing of time.

Discover the profoundness of your being, where the noise of the external world fades away, and the truth and love within you come alive. It is not your silence; you are the silence. Embrace the greatness of being possessed by silence, where even your presence becomes a disturbance. Let the blessings of silence unfold as you embark on this transformative journey.
