I always feel that with the passage of time and with each growing year, I have become quieter and have lost the urge to indulge in any meaningless discussion or conversations. Such indulgence, I feel, is a waste of time as well as energy; which should be rather used in a more sensible manner. So, where on one hand I feel happy about the fact that I am using my energies positively, on the other, carry many thoughts that incessantly bother me. The thought that is it the right thing to do? Is it appropriate when I do not at all talk or feel like talking to anyone? What will the people think about me? Will they think that I am too conceited? Will God punish me for this behaviour and will it become my bad karma?
Lots of such thoughts occur and occupy my mind and put me in a constant dilemma.
Fortunately, though, few days back, I came across this beautiful quote by the famous poet, Rumi, which said- `THE QUIETER YOU BECOME, THE MORE YOU ARE ABLE TO HEAR’ and it cleared all my illusions and apprehensions and reassured me that I am on the right path and there is nothing wrong in my demeanor.
We all must understand that the most important thing in life is to have the knowledge and the awareness of our inner self;the knowledge that if we are able to understand our true conscience, we can get all our answers from within. Our inner self is the only true guiding force which can solve all our problems and then there is no need to wander here and there. But to achieve all this, we need to be quieter in order to hear and acknowledge this voice that comes from within.
In general, all day long, all the humans are deeply engrossed in many endless conversations; most of which are senseless and only bring them into the trap of jealously, anger and anxiousness. Such conversations keep them so occupied that they forget to indulge in any rightful things or acts. There is no self introspection and thus no understanding of the truth and resultantly, all there life is spent in the nescience.
Hence, if we really want to understand the true realities of life and that of our inner self and want to sincerely listen to the voice within, than we surely need to become quieter with each passing day. We have to forbid ourselves from worthless talking and have to spend more time in listening to what our inner voice wants to tell us. If we remain silent than these inner sounds and the voice would become clearer. But if we keep ourselves busy in trivial talking, than we create so many futile sounds around us which prevent us from hearing the most important sound of our life and take us far way from all the consequential things of life and just lead us to worthless engagements.
The knowledge of self is highly crucial because it helps us to understand the real power of the all eternal Almighty and we will only be able to have it when we train our self to speak less ,in order to hear the most significant sound in life; the sound of the voice within.
