When silence speaks....

Its early morning, the rising sun beams takes away the chill from the air. Flowers are beginning to bloom and you can see the nature welcoming a beautiful and bright day. The silence of nature is speaking volumes about the beauty around. The bright leaves and the sun rays are spreading their charm.

That my friend; is the tale of silence which nature speaks and we often fail to hear. Stuck in the rut of city life where we wake up to the noise of the water pump and the honking of the horn on the road, our mind is too frantic to observe the silence of a morning. Running from pillar to post, completing chores we are always in a rush to accomplish things. The peace of the day ends before it begins.

But what is it that we are missing out on? Is a question we seldom ask ourselves.
We are missing out on the most precious moments in life which are best lived in peace and tranquility. We are missing out on the feeling of peace and contentment which the silence of nature and the beauty of a morning give us. Lazing in the sun on a sunny winter morning, sitting in the garden during a summer sun rise, are moments in life when we pause and look around. We see that nature speaks and laughs and emits noises which are like music to our ears and a balm for our ruffled nerves.

It is important that we break away from the clutter and soothe our nerves. While this might sound too philosophical, but this is exactly what yoga does. Relaxing your body and sensitizing your senses can be done best in an environment which promises peace and tranquility.
Highest sense of awareness, concentration and introspection need the serenity of nature.

The silence of nature speaks a thousand words that have a calming effect. Some say, it’s therapeutic, I say it’s the simple joy of life in the lap of nature.

silence and nature -- well said. The problem is that the kind of lives we live now -- nature is falling silent in many other ways.
