I have a friend who completed the course to teach transcendental mediation. He seems extremely impressed by it, and he’s someone whose thinking processes I respect. Therefore, though I had tried learning the meditation many years ago (I found the initiation very lackadaisical and superficial) I decided to take up the offer he made, to teach the first five people who responded to his FaceBook post, for free.
One doesn’t have to visit distant forests or wildlife sanctuaries in order to find the beauties of Nature…a visit to the local park will do just as well. Here’s what I did on a recent morning visit to Lalbagh.
Do not be angry If you are met With silence from another. You may not know what screams Echo in the silence of that person’s soul. Screams, not uttered,unheard But no less a torment To that other one, Who cannot, through those screams Hear your words, or sounds. I wish we could speak and hear From soul to soul, heart to heart, Instead of from mouth to ear, and ear to mouth.
