The challenge

When I meditate or when I am in a meditative state of mind when not meditating I find that I become silence itself, fearless, unmoved, infinite. Like the calm inside the eye of a storm. It’s almost like I’m a different person. The real me emerges. When I move out of that silence, I become subject to desires, fears, wayward thoughts and emotions, like a leaf tossed about in the storm. The challenge, the moment-by-moment challenge is to stay in that silence, to stay faithful to my true self.
