A Conversation Without Words

9th of Mar 2013

Bangalore, India

We need to see and observe that whatever thoughts come to our mind, are all useless. Every thought is about the past. These thoughts that arise in the mind are a projection of the past on the consciousness. Whatever has happened in the past, we project the same things in the future.
So it is the thoughts of the past that keep coming up in the mind. ‘This is okay, that is not okay. I like this, I don’t like that’.
What you need to do, is bundle up all these thoughts, and throw them out. By just realising that all these thoughts are useless, the mind becomes free.
Do you understand what I am saying?

Today, some of you who are sitting here are experiencing this. This is called Maun Samvad. When you go deep into silence, then you experience this.
What is it? You experience a communication that happens without thoughts; without saying anything one is able to understand what is being conveyed.
This is when all the questions in your mind disappear.

Questions are only vehicles to reach the destination. Answers to questions are like fuel to the vehicle. So, when the answer to the question is found, the vehicle starts moving ahead. However, it is possible to reach your destination directly also, without the use of questions and answers. How? By sitting in silence. This is the significance of silence. When one sits in silence and a question arises, then the answer also comes along with the question. Has that happened to you? How many of you feel this? (Many raise their hands)

I want to tell you one more thing; an old yet new thing. All these questions and answers are all thoughts, and whatever other thoughts that you are having, just bundle them up and drop them. Just become silent! Only then is celebration possible. Then enthusiasm can arise and then the consciousness blossoms. Otherwise, the more you are caught up in thoughts, the more the consciousness moves towards inertia.

Those who get excessively caught up in their thoughts become inert or lifeless; which means they don’t have any enthusiasm in them.
Look at little children, what do they have? They have enthusiasm, a sense of celebration, love, and a sparkle within. They have very few thoughts, isn’t it? Whenever you look at little children, it looks as if their consciousness is bubbling (with joy).
All these celebrations like Mahashivrati are for that only. For you to drop everything else!

Just drop everything and immerse yourself totally in the Shiva Tattva. Become like Shiva, this means be in that feeling of innocence. What is innocence? Not being entangled in any thoughts, just being simple and natural, and totally immersed in the Self. For little while, immerse yourself in the music.
Music, prayers, chanting of mantras, devotion, faith, these are all a medium for this to happen. A Guru is a medium. Pooja is a medium. All these bring us into the awareness of our Being.
