THE SILENCE

Silence is a state of thoughtlessness. There is neither the outside noise nor the inside noise. What remains now is Silence. Everything around you continues to happen but you are just observer, nothing else.

This short story helps in understanding Silence in a beautiful way:-Four monks decided to meditate silently without speaking for two weeks. They began with enthusiasm and no one said a word the whole day. By nightfall of the first day, the candle began to flicker and then went out.
The first monk blurted out, “Oh, no! The candle is out.”
The second monk said, “Hey! We are not supposed to speak!”
The third monk said in an irritated voice, “What is this? Why did you two break the silence?”
The fourth monk smiled and said, “Wow! I’m the only one who hasn’t spoken.”

For experiencing Silence, remember “I CAN”:-
