“Your noise is my silence.” ~ Rumi
When you are in silence, you are totally with yourself. You are introspecting, you are looking inside you, you are contemplating, you are satisfied and calm – more than anything you are at peace. You are at peace because you have taken a few moments in your life to recount yourself, you know that the answer is within you for most of your questions. That silence of being with yourself comes from being with you being in the right environment. The place exudes beauty for you, it is special for you and it is not the same for someone else. It is a place where you you are in bliss. This does not make sense for many people – as they cannot be at peace there. It is not for them, but exclusively only for you. It might happen that place is crowded, noisy, loud, small and cramped, dirty or even dingy. That place gives you the most comfort. There are such places in our lives, either the place where we grew up or the places which have left an indelible mark in our minds. It could be also with someone where the location does not matter. You could be totally at peace with that special soul, no matter where the world takes you. You are at peace the minute you are with that soul.
Being at peace amidst all the noise, is your true nature.
When that place or someone is with you, you are able to be about yourself. It is no longer the difference in you and the place or you and the other, all you see is oneness. You do not take yourself away from that place. You are so much with that place or person – you are completely in peace. That peace leads you to realization. No matter what is happening around you, no matter what the other person is saying, you are definitely moving towards realization. Nothing else matters at this point. You are so convinced that you are in the best place and the best situation that automatically you go deep inwards within you. That is what the noise is about. That noise which makes you feel safe, be aligned and be so comfortable. The baby is comfortable in the womb no matter what noises comes, as the baby is so convinced that the mother will take care. This comfort also comes because of the enormous trust you have on the place or the person. The minute you place such a trust with a soul, your life transforms to realization.
Go ahead, find that place, identify that person who is going to take you there. Place all the trust, drop all the expectation, being at peace and being calm amidst all that noise is going to liberate you. You will be in bliss from that minute.
