Silence

I am not talking about the calmness or stillness of a moment.I am talking about the chaos,confusion ,hopelessness and despair when everything is beyond your control.There seems no way that the world understand what you are going through.

When you have a small argument with your best friend and you know you have rocked the relationship...
When someone passes an unneceesary comment about how you look in front of everyone...
When you made a mess but have no way to hide the damage done...
When the person who has wronged stands in front of you ,but you cant do anything...
Whne you give up everything for the person you love and they leave you ...
When you work very hard and everyone except you gets the prize...
When you have a path to the ultimate experience in life but you are stuck in your dead end job...
When god laughs at your every plan...
When you have a voice to shatter the injustice,a will to change your destiny and still there is something which has chained your soul...

Is silence the best option???

Silence helps sometimes. But it is not a one shot cure for all types of people... Some would like to shout it out before they get over the event...

"This too shall pass" approach helps... But then one gets it only from experience...

neodawn,
i discovered "this too shall pass" approach few years back .It was quite helpful.
Here silence was more of acceptance ..in good or bad situations.But sometimes when some injustice occurs and we scream there is no one to listen.

That is why my favourite Hindi song is Rafi's "Main Zindagi Ka Saath Nibha Tha Chala Gaya". Though very difficult to practise initially I guess that is the one practical approach to life that would enable one to lead a tranquil life. But again a cynic would ask why lead a tranquil life. There you would have got me.
You are posting regularly :)
But a pity I am not able to do that :(

sridhar,
We have to live ..we can change our life and our life changes us..we cant get out of it .May be death is the only escape...

If a person leads a tranquil life then there is no personal growth.
Then you can ask me why we need growth??
then why the journey called life??
answer most of the time :I dont know..
