Dear Deepak, I just started applying 7 spiritual laws of success and I’m feeling the change in me. What is the difference between meditation and practicing silence? Until now I was thinking that both are the same please tell me difference.
Meditation is a reliable means of contacting the silence of our inner self. Practicing silence can mean almost anything depending upon the state of consciousness of the person in question. For some rare individuals it can be simply closing the eyes and connecting to silent awareness beyond thought and mind. For most people it be closing the eyes and thinking about silence in the midst of thinking other thoughts. But thoughts of silence are still mental activity and not actual silence or stillness. Without a traditional technique like meditation, that takes the mind beyond itself, silence is usually just another thought, not a transcendent experience.
