Am I getting old or is there a change in me? I went for a function where there was loud music and a lot of people. I talked to many and eventually I was exhausted. Many years ago, when I worked in sales, I could talk all day. Now I run away, close my eyes and rejuvenate in silence. I enjoy being social yet, the joy of being by oneself is a whole new experience. We need thoughts to communicate but no thoughts to heal ourselves. We need not live isolated lives. We should get tired from the noise of the world so we can truly benefit the gift of silence. — Satish Daryanani
