In the beginning..

In the beginning was Silence.
Then came Thoughts.
Finally, Words.
Still later came- Speech, Oratory,
Fluency.
And people said: He gave a damn good
speech!
And people wrote books: “100 ideas-
How to give damn good speech!”

In the beginning was Silence.
Then, came Thoughts.
Like little waves in a deep ocean.
Thoughts consisted of silence-
Were all pervasive, everywhere-
Made of same substance as the ocean.
Before you asked, someone gave you the
water.
Because thoughts were not divided
by
the artificial boundaries of EGO.
Thoughts were One- we were One.
We understood without words.
Teacher taught without words.
Teacher and Taught sat together in
communion.
At the end, Taught understood
everything,
Even though words were not exchanged.
Then, in an outward (or downward)
movement-
The need to dazzle others arose:
Pun, Hyperbole, Spoonerism-
They all came, marching- as an army of
ants..
Then, came misunderstanding and
confusion.
Thoughts got killed in beautiful words.
Silence vanished..
What was left? Dictionaries, Thesaurus,
Books, Journals..
But little wisdom.
The silence which gave meaning to words
had vanished.
Since all movement is in circle-
I must return to THAT Silence..

    Hmmm, I understand the meaning (partly), but still too young and ambition to follow the directed path!!

    Wonderful.. once this small boundary of ego is dissolved then it will give way for "The One". Where the created and creater become one 🙂

    Still all theory from my side!! 🙂 [Chintamaya Panya] yet to have some practical experience :-)[Bhavanamaya Panya!!]
