    I have been blessed with the gift of entering into that state. When I am feeling particularly troubled and cannot find resolution, it has become easier to turn off the troubling thoughts and allow the emptiness to take over;  which, in turn, may sometimes be accompanied by a blissful state. This was not something that I trained myself to do, although I have practiced yoga since I was a teenager; rather it was a gift from whom I do not know. I am grateful - for it brings a sense of peace to a life beset with stress and doubt. Even as I compose these words, the silence abides beneath all thought and perception. It is always present.
