PoUr Some Rain On Me...

Wen the rain falls on my window...
When the fragrance of wet soil fills up my senses
A sweet dream commences
N i wish u were here
'Coz this feels Queer...
Jus like a Colourless Rainbow...

I dont know why the Night seems so Lonely today
It jus seems strangely different
Even Coffee aint acting like a stimulant
Maybe i need something else..like "cocaine"
U never know, it might increase the beauty o the rain
And lead me to a place where i've never been...
And show me a dream i've never seen...
And i might jus utter words that i'd usually never say...

I dont know a lotta things
Including certain Capitals and River-Origins
But i know some things
About Rare meetings and Phone conversations,

Meaningful songs and crazy arguments,
And the happiness they bring...

Words r All I HavE to Take Yr HeaRt AwAy!

If anyone were to explain or define silence as absence of sound, I'd say I've got news for you. Silence is a powerful dynamic with the power to change your life and alter your motives - that is, if you play its game. Silence is as essential as air or water for our well-being, even survival as a species. A Chatterbox like me sayin this sounds weird but recently,I've been catapulted into the awareness of silence, essential silence, so I know through personal experience.. Silence is something that helps u understand yourself bettr..and otherz too. It is directly related to the development of our potential as human beings. Therz this silence inside me, even in the midst of outside noise. I can heave myself inwardly over a sort of threshold or barrier, by an act of will. But my will is elusive. I easily slip out again and find myself in the grey, busy, scattered gnawing of my thoughts and emotions and habits. Again and again I have to make the effort of getting over that threshold.The most startling feature of the silence is that there are messages in there, clear direction, vision or inspiration. Of course, part of discovering silence as a force is to discover that it has conditions. You can't enter into its secrets if you have no intention to follow its promptings or if you just want a sensation of euphoria. Silence is like a sacred space where you meet the Divine essence of all life, by some called the still, small voice. You take off your walking shoes, strip yourself of selfish motives and enter on tip toe to be led in unexpected ways by unexpected means, and it gives you the spunk to play the game the way it was meant.( i cn soo visualize James Blunt's "you'r beautiful")
When you enter the heart of the silence, all you want is to align yourself with it, and be part of it. You know intuitively that you were meant for it, and you have always secretly longed for it. Your whole being is filled with a passionate sense of discovery..yeah something like "Eureka!!" and with it an exhilarating, overflowing sense of love which takes you out of yourself, headlong into a new venture of further discovery. You know you are meant for something great, something special, something only you can do, just because you are you. You know that you are part of a pattern. You know that the future depends on us finding our part in that pattern and that we must help each other find it, and give each other courage to do our part. Suddenly you find you have a passion - a quiet but insistent passion n develop a new awareness of these inner realities which are so predictable and certain, yet so near to being forgotten.Sometimz this very Silence connotes loneliness n not solitude..sometimes it scares me...but i cant really help this feeling- You are never the same once you have discovered the silence. You will tire, you will despair, you will meet difficulties. But nothing can take away your experience of that inner space where Silence is and Truth speaks and Wisdom leads. It is always up to you whether you heave yourself over that threshold again and enter....

I knw most of my readers would be nothing short of surprised to see all this coming from me..but the other day, under the clouds, i discovered the words of Silence..n i think it was one of the most pure, and beautiful feelings i ever experienced...cz sometimes you can say alot, without really uttering a word...hoping the other person would hear u right...

..my mind drifts to the Notting Hill soundtrack- "When you say nothing At All..."

P.s- i have finally updated, my Block is fading away..so Rejoice(cz i am!)!!
