Jinendra Swami - The Sound of Silence



Have you ever listened to
The Sound of Silence within you?

The Silence arises
    from the void of the 'Heart'
This void is
   the throne  of your 'Atman'

Do you know
What matters to the  'Heart'
...  ...  ...    matters  'You'?

But what is this  'Heart'?
Who is this 'You' ?

The Body    ...   ...  is not You
The  Mind  ...   ...  is not You
The  Intellect   ...   is not You
Nor, the Emotion and Feeling is  You
But do you  'Know'
What's in the HEART  is  YOU ?

It is highly fashionable
 ... ...    to be 'Rational'
But, can you find 
  the ME in Rational?  


The words have their own consciousness
Let the alphabets in the words speak to you
Be  ' E_M_O_T_I_O_N_A_L '
...   ...   and  Un-Scramble
...    ...  ...   the Cosmic Code 

Let-go ... ...  your-self ...  ...  in spiral
... ...  to experience ... ... a Revelation
There is ....ME
There is ....MOTION 
There is ....NO-TIME
There is ....only you.....ALONE

ME is Awareness
MOTION is  creativity of Life
NO-TIME is eternal Timelessness
ALONE is the Self - the Witnesser

When the Heart goes
....... tick, tick,   ... tick
The intellect goes
...  ... one , two , three 
Can't  you  SEE ?
 ... ... that the ...   ...  1 , 2 , 3
   is simply the reverberation
   of  the ... tick , tick... , tick 

The Rational is just 1 , 2 , 3
Go beyond   ...   ...  this 1 , 2 , 3
....  to the Source of  the
....    ...  TICK , TICK,  ...  TICK
For in this  ' T_I_C_K '
You'll experience . ..'IT '  
...   ...   ...  Listen to  'IT '
...  ...  ...  ...  Be with 'IT '
...   ...   ...   Merge with 'IT '
This merging is Meditation
This merging is Real 'Bhakti'

Contemplate ... deeeeeeeply 
   on the  void of the  'HEART '
It is NOT
  the ordinary organ-heart
It is
  the throne of your 'Atman'

You'll  'KNOW '
What the  'HE-ART'  is
When you experience in it
  the truth that is  'HE'

Listen to your  'HE_AR_T'
'HE' calls  HEAR, HEAR
Come silently   ... Come quietly
...   ...   a little closer
...   ...  ...   just a little more
NOW, open  your  'H_EAR_T'
  and discover the inner 'EAR'
It is through this inner 'EAR'
That  you can  'HEAR'
... ...  Loud ...   and clear ... ....
...  'SOHAM, SOHAM, ... SOHAM'

This Soham is
The sound of silence within you

IT beckons you
   to return to your-Self  
'Soham' brings you back
To the void of  your  'Heart'
...   ...  the throne  of  'Atman'

You too can discover
  the source of your I
Search for, who am I ?
Abide in it
  and be an Enlightened being
Now you 'understand'
Now you 'know'
What matters to the 'Heart'
 ...   ...   matters  'You'

You can 'know' a great deal
If you know 'how to Read'
Do you really know
  what the word  'understand'  means?
Or for that matter
  what the word  'know' means ?
And you still think you can arrive
  at the Abstract meaning
  that hide behind the words you Read ?

Be aware and perceive rightly
Then the words come alive and become meaningful
If not, they are like writings on water
Soon to disappear into meaninglessness!!
