The man whose whole activity is diverted to inner meditation becomes insensible to all his surroundings.

They are dissipated in futile imaginings, producing nothing external to themselves.

How do we meditate silently? Just by not talking, just by not using outer words, we are not doing silent meditation. Silent meditation is totally different. When we start meditating in silence, right from the beginning we feel the bottom of a sea within us and without.

So, either we shall imagine this sea of silence within us or we shall feel that we are nothing but a sea of poise itself
When you meditate you have to try to quiet and calm the mind. There should be no thought within the mind. Right now you feel that if you can cherish twenty ideas at a time, then you are the wisest man on earth. The more thoughts that enter into our minds, the more clever we feel we are. But in the spiritual life it is not like that. If consciously we can make the mind calm and quiet, we feel that a new creation dawns inside us.
