Moments of Silence in the Morning & Aurobindo’s Poem

Some moments of silence in the morning is the best start to the day. A time when you can be with yourself and enjoy pure awareness. Awareness of the grass, the dew drops, the sky, the stillness. Before the day begins and envelops you in its hustle and rush, give the gift of silence to yourself. It will energize you as nothing else can.

Meditation Serenity Silence

Here is a beautiful poignant poem on silence by Shri Aurobindo:
Silence is all, say the sages.
Silence watches the work of the ages;
In the book of Silence the cosmic Scribe has written his cosmic pages;
Silence is all, say the sages.

What then of the word, O speaker?
What then of the thought, O thinker?
Thought is the wine of the soul and the word is the beaker;
Life is the banquet-table – the soul of the sage is the drinker.

What of the wine, O mortal?
I am drunk with the wine as I sit at Wisdom’s portal,
Waiting for the Light beyond thought and the Word immortal.
Long I sit in vain at Wisdom’s portal.

How shalt thou know the Word when it comes, O seeker?
How shalt thou know the Light when it breaks, O witness?
I shall hear the voice of the God within me and grow wiser and meeker;
I shall be the tree that takes in the light as its food, I shall drink its nectar of sweetness.
