THE INNER VOICE
It’s that time of the night when everyone’s asleep. At least everyone in your time zone. The night is black outside save for the stars in the sky and the few lights twinkling in the distance. The cool night breeze blows in your face but sleep evades you. You are wide-awake and your thoughts are loud and clear in the night. You have the house to yourself. Don’t make the mistake of switching on the T.V. Sit and connect with your thoughts. Your inner soul has been crying out to listen. But in the hustle and bustle of life you have ignored it. No, put down that coffee cup. Start experiencing what people travel all the way to the Himalayas to experience. Yes, you can hear your thoughts sorting out. Hmm… yesterday’s problem at work, or that project which you couldn’t complete. All your muddled thoughts have unraveled and presented themselves before you. You just realize that your productivity is at it’s best when the world sleeps.Your body is tired from a hard day’s work. Sit down cross-legged near the window. Keep a single dim light on. Hear the past speak to you. It will tell you what the future holds. Your brain is fired up. You want to keep on working, keep on thinking. But this tryst with your thoughts won’t last. Sleep steals over you cunningly, subtly. Your eyelids get heavy and your brain switches off. The time has passed. Some other time some other truth will be revealed. For now just…sweet slumber.
