The missing watch - power of silence
Let this blog find you connected with your inner voice. Here is a short story sent by a friend...
The Missing Watch…
It is said that our inner voice & heart keep speaking to us very softly. Notice that in last many years, the noise, sound & information around us has increased multi-folds: internet, mobile, social networking, 100s of TV channels, media etc.
What has remained constant is our 24 hours each day. All this information overload keeps bombarding on us. The inner voice has very little chance to be heard.
We found a practical suggestion that can allow us to hear the inner voice and get clarity. It is as simple as just SITTING in SILENCE. No accessories required. Only keep your eyes closed. Preferably sit on a mat on the floor with your legs folded in the lotus posture. But any other posture will do. You can even do it while sitting on a chair, in a flight or in a moving vehicle. The only rule is keep your eyes closed & REMAIN AWAKE.
I initially found it impossible to even remain awake for 5 minutes. Slowly with practice the duration increased.
If you do it for just 30 minutes a day, you will experience an amazing level of peace. You will also get lots of new ideas and clarity on the latest issues in your life. Doing it early morning gives a refreshing start to the day.
May you discover a new level of clarity & peace in life.
