Shh....... That is what i need at the moment. Silence. Freedom from noise. Freedom not from the external noise, but freedom from the internal noise. Freedom from the perennial noise that exists within me. The noise of ego, expectations, fear and disappointments. The noise which keeps playing and replaying the loud egotistical and fear driven conversations in my head. The noise that skews my sense of self and that of the world around me.
And isn't it paradoxical that whenever we are feeling down, we are told to party, hang-out, go shopping, get a make-over and blah blah blah... Resorting to the external noise to get rid of the internal noise. While these can be the temporary solutions but can't lead to the permanent blissful state of freedom from internal noise.
Distractions come easy. So, everyone buys the distractions of external noise to silence the voice within. Distractions lead us to a state of limbo. But Meditation will bring the answers.
