To Dwell in another Realm

We live in a world governed by politics, economics, turmoil, excitement, vulgarity, violence and constant noise. We plough through life in a desensitized state lost in a maze of man-made laws and mess.

To understand oneself we need to turn off all the noise. In this silence we become sensitive and everything starts making sense. We see the subtle, unchanging laws of nature which governs all existence. We  will see the amazing perfection, symmetry, beauty, equality, purpose and meaning of all of creation and ultimately our own.

In this silence, we will tune in to our body. We will feel the body through the different stages in a month. We will notice the heightened sense of sexual desire during certain times. We will see the effect of certain foods, why we feel lethargic or tired. We will understand our moods and feelings and why people around us react or behave the way they do.

This understanding is essential for our happiness and well being. A quote from Albert Camus that aptly summarizes this. In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.
