     When we first sit or stand in silence doing consciously nothing we realise with a shock that the universe(including the part inside our skin) is humming with activity, harmonious, melodious activity. We are shocked. How can this be? when "I AM DOING NOTHING"

    In shock we call it noise, a paradox, a seeming absurdity.

    A little later the realisation arises that there is another I which is really the one making it all happen. Whenever this happens that is the end of our separate existence, our loneliness, our suffering, our misery.

    That is the beginning of the timeless existence.

    What name we call it by is immaterial.
