The Sound of Silence

 

I hear a sound
Talking to me
All the time
Is that my mind
Wanting to be
All sublime!
Why do we talk
To ourselves?
Is there another
Modality of being?
How about silence?
Is it too hard
To stop the inner
Chat?
To hear the voice
Of Truth?
To rejoice
In an empty realm
Of calmness
Stillness
Emptiness!
The mind knows
Itself through
Endless chatter
No matter
If you’re alone
Or with another
You can’t stop it
You can’t resist it
But you can
Observe it
You can withdraw
Your attention
Unplug the plug!
It draws its energy
From you
Get out
Of your mind!
Without being
Mad
Or sad
Use it for what
It’s been created
For
The sound of silence
Is the sound of wisdom
It’s how you know
Who you are
You can’t hear it
While chatting
With your mind!
But if you reached
That inner stillness
And listened
Just listened
Without uttering
A word
You’d delve
Into an ocean
Of no emotion
No thought
A place of peace
No one knows
What you could
Find there
Listen to the silence
Learn its language
Stay awake
And take
One or two
Lessons
As you leave
The ocean
Of steady
Yet calm
Motion
That’s a dimension
Of you
Of me
Of us all
Which we ignore
Yet it’s there for
A reason
It’s there
To lift us up
From the depths
Of
Forgetfulness
Silence!
