The sound of one hand clapping

... is the sound of nothingness... silence…. space… the sound of man perceiving his solitude…and I said solitude… not loneliness… there’s a difference.

Often busy schedules, demanding deadlines, a host of responsibilities is what seem to be ruling and running your life… as if the schedule is in control. We feel like we’ll never catch up, and may even make a mountain out of the mole hill when pressured. I think with the world changing at a pace that is almost impossible to keep up with- it’s important to find some balance and take charge of the schedule…. Not the schedule taking charge of you like the puppet on strings.

For some ... that balance is found within solitude. By cultivating some solitude… we figure out our why’s, what’s and where’s, ultimately finding some direction for actions (however small). And determined actions result in you being in charge of the schedule... and not be the puppet!

The sound of one hand clapping is the sound of man exploring and finding awareness -and himself- in an ever changing world.

  1. With all this chasing after our deadlines and all getting faster and work at a quicker pace, do you really thing that we get more things done?
