Silence.
The universe is putting on a spectacular show and we we too clouded by socity to pay attention to it, our thoughts are too loud. WAY TOO LOUD. People live in the past, and act like the future is now. But in reality there is only now. We are too caught up in expectation, to just listen. Just observe, accept, listen in silence like you would a song. And you can sing along, not with words, not with thoughts, but with emotion. Because your emotion is unique, because your emotion is an expression, a reflection, of the universe who is also just as unique. And in this moment you become equals, you become part of the show being played.

We are all part of a very big band that plays beautiful music. But we sometimes see ourselves as a member of the band who is expendible. And when we do that, we forget that infact we are all finly tuned, otherwise we wouldnt be here.

Your role is meditation. It's silence. It's meditation, it's silence. It's connecting on a deeper level with everything. It's so simple to do. It's not some mystical thing. It's a truth that is simple but complex in design.

There is no secret, or mystery. Theres no... tangable impact, it's all emotional and perspective. It's a peek into the universe as the universe takes a peek at you, because it is equaly curious. Because you are a reflection of it, and it is a reflection of you. It's about sharing the experience of now with your surroundings.

And when you have that state of mind, you become more... social, you become less anxious, you see that you contribute... You... are a single raindrop out of the many that come together to create the sound of rain.

And some people say the sound of rain... is just rain, its not special. But are they listening to it? Or just hearing it as background noise? Are they giving it the attention required to see that it is as much a part of now as any of us.. and that, if we payed attention, we would see that we had more in common with rain than we first thought.

Be - utiful. To just be. Outstanding OP.

Staying in the moment is harder than people think.

Try that folks. Sit down in a quiet room, close your eyes, and try to keep your mind from drifting.

3,2,1... gone

I appreciate that.

I was listening to Alan Watts and he said "The sound of rain needs no translation." And in that moment I paused the video and began to cry... because the answer is so simple.. so misconcieved, so taken advantage of.. that something as innocent as the sound of rain is able to make its existance impact our own reality.

How the human personality fits so finly into the analogy is worthy of awe.

Amazingly, this kind of sentiment gets little attention. People are off in their land of destraction, focusing endlessly on Trump, child porn, whatever...

gonna go do something peaceful and walk my dog. Thanks for reminding me of the sounds of silence...

I like noise. It creates different chemistries. Many combinations to aspire or inspire individuals to improve or destroy it's own creative force. Almost like God

It is fine to teach. But learning is divine.

It is fine to be an individual. But being part of something bigger than yourself is divine.

It is fine to speak, but silence is divine.

Noise is a distraction, silence is an appreciation.

It's a mutual respect, it's humble, it's negate of judement. There is a balance, and we all fit into it. Noise drowns out the unity.

To hear a noise is nothing special, but to listen to the noise is bliss.

I find the sound of raindrops on a tin roof or the murmur of the ocean spilling onto the sand enrapturing. They are lovely mediums for focusing your attention and quieting the mind.

Great OP

Liking the sound of rain is common. But most people just say.. "I like to watch the rain." And they sit there... usually in comfortable silence.. much like a fire. And they have no idea why it is they enjoy it so.

But in reality it is when you listen... that you do not speak. So what ends up occuring is an indefiniate moment of silence. Where time is irrelevant, where... your mind is a flowing river. Where nothing is nagging you, watching over your shoulder, correcting you.. And you enjoy these moments, you enjoy these moments because the rain doesnt expect anything from you, and you expect nothing of the rain. You share a silence and even welcome it's existance. No one says a word, and you can just sit there and admire the show.

When I was younger... the rain was not rain only because it elicted an emotion called "forelorn" it was cause for a refection, on the whole. Of course in egocentricism, it was about "me" in introspection... not why would the emotion of forelorn exist out there somewhere? The energy looming and made itself present in that moment when it was not there before... rain is rain.

When a part of nature then such things are not seen as a self but a ground of awareness or being.

So when a mood shifts; who could it be coming from? One says self "me" but if that were the case one's mood would be all over the place like the eye moment to moment moving now here now there.

So this mood that appears is what many try to beat away instead of face... when young we think it comes from us when it is the same "taste" feeling or sensing this taste as not pleasing... many run from that feeling, instead of investigate it... to see where and why it is arising. Then we see that since it has been ran away from by oh so many? Instead of embraced as an energy itself... it cannot be healed.

So embracing whatever arises as feeling; helps resolve those energies.

It can of course be very draining as it takes a lot of equipoise to face what others continually run from in fearlessness.

None of this needs to be said; silence... yes very noisy the mind chattering away at grasping from past to future with intention and typically only weighing a self benefit not an other benefit and the present is left to that planning and ignoring all that needs resolving as that planning appears to be a constant get away from what has past.

So the feeling looms on; and those anantara sounds arise as a cosmic symphony... yet they have always been yet typically unnoticed. Lol the loud conch sound like a fog horn just blew and vibrated the whole ground at typing that.

Here's my advice on these sounds; they are related to chakras... so listen for the unstruck one, it appears in a moment of zen, as you carry that sound. So when you hear one? Mentally recall it and then the one missing? Will sound as you recall it. All seven play on and the 8th is always waiting for you to strike it whenever you feel like joining in; for them to rotate and bring peace/healing to the entire area or being that is just simply awareness.

The universe is a living organism in my opinion and has very many facets, us being the most obvious facet. We are the universe playing out eternally and what an awesome play we are "performing" in.

Alan Watts is a fantastic speaker when it comes to this type of thing. His analogies are on point, he is humours at times.

Try looking up Alan Watts: Silence & Reality
