The Mask Series VII


"Prayer is when you talk to God; meditation is when you listen to God." Diana Robinson

“To understand the immeasurable, the mind must be extraordinarily quiet, still.” Jiddu Krishnamurti

“Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and indifference toward the wicked.” Patanjali

This is a mask clicked hanging in my Mask Wall that seems stuck in deep meditation. I often wonder if people who get into substance abuse to escape the "real" world-they find hard to deal with-are nevertheless same as these people who take up meditation to do the same... and they say meditation is addictive once you start... would I be surprized?!

I cannot make out the mask properly from the pic :(
I loved the quotes you added, we sure forget listening to our inner voice in the daily humdrum and at times it is just that momentary silence and peace and self retrospection that provides a solution to most troubles.

@Swarnali: Neither could I understand the concept of meditation Swarnali... Sometimes solutions are received when it is least searched for. Ces't la vie...
