There is a story that goes like this:
Once upon a time, a student went to a great sage to ask about the meaning of life and how to attain the direct experience of the Highest.
He asked his question, but the sage gave no answer. He just sat there.
Again, the student asked about how to find and fulfill the Purpose of life. Again, the sage just sat there.
The student tried different words, and appealed with great emotion. The sage just sat there, as before.
Finally, the student became frustrated, and blurted out, in an angry tone, “Why don’t you answer me!”
The sage smiled, and said, “I have been answering you, but you were not listening. The answer you are looking for is to be found only in Silence.”
To sit in stillness and silence for even a few minutes each day is a very useful thing to do.
May you find that silence which leads to Silence.

It might take many more lifetimes to make any real progress. click to read more
