Generally we are trying to reduce the noise of the mind to feel peaceful, and then it becomes like a continuous compromise, negotiation, struggle, adjustment, arrangement and effort basically, like without effort it’s not going to happen. Whereas in the Satsang, there is a possibility of discovering the silence of the being, silence of Your being, which I found to be so loud actually, that you cannot hear any noise of the mind actually. It’s just that you have to focus on the right thing. We are focusing on the mind noise and trying to reduce it, and the invitation in Satsang is to focus on the silence of the being which was shared like this today, and the more and more you focus on this, the more and more you will feel and live the silence of the being and effectively you don’t feel the noise of the mind. Meaning not that mind functioning will disappear or thoughts and movement of thoughts will not be there, but effectively it doesn’t matter to you, meaning it is not relevant anymore whether there are thoughts or feeling or movement of anything inside you or not.
