Shri Kamlesh D. Patel said, “You have centered yourself towards your heart. You are more perceptive, as you are trying to understand things with your heart. When you look at things, your attention is in the heart; your eyes are there. You are always trying to weigh things with your heart; you are not analyzing from the mind. Your inner radar opens up. And this habit has to be cultivated. If you want to become sharply discriminative, then this is a must.”
Today, I am going to take you all through an exercise, an exercise of silence, if you may call it. But before that, I want to listen to this song.
Ronan Keating has the most amazing voice, when he sings, “You say it best, when you say nothing at all.” Does he mean, saying nothing, speaking nothing, makes lovers come together – metaphorically? Does he say, “The heart speaks to the heart in the most intimate way, in silence?”
Silence and meditation, and the voice of the heart have long been associated together. And it has also been associated with lovers and their love. We know love transcends all barriers, languages, countries, races and religions. We have numerous examples from history.
Shams Tabrizi said in his Rule # 5 of love, “Most of problems of the world stem from linguistic mistakes and simple misunderstanding. Don’t ever take words at face value. When you step into the zone of love, language, as we know it becomes obsolete. That which cannot be put into words can only be grasped through silence.”
Even when all words fail, you can connect with that one smile, one look, or even with no perceptive visual observation too.
How is this communication between two people who are so close, possible? I have always wondered, is it because they “know” each other so well? Is it because they understand each other? Is it something deeper than all understanding, research and explanation? Perhaps, it is a bond of the hearts? Perhaps it is because their hearts beat as One? Well, science would surely offer a great explanation. Neurologists would explain phenomenon with evidence. However, for the common man, is it possible to go there, without that one beautiful soul with him/her always?
Well, there … to that deepest innermost confines of one’s heart, in that silence of the mind, where one is able to listen to the Voice of the heart. As the stillness continues, one if able to bask in the light and joy and love of the heart.
It is also believed that most of the holy books were received by humanity through the heart, through intuition, by listening to that Voice, which is heard, which is transmitted into one’s Heart, only when the mind is in stillness, in silence, and the Heart in tune with Divinity.
Well, whether that is true or not, this below exercise surely would help us tune ourselves to hear own Heart’s Voice better and clearer. And perhaps, that Voice of our Heart, is the Language of God?!!
