In this fast world of timings and running around to fix and get things done, sitting silent can be an impossibility.
It is this, that is a break for the rusher, to build up ease and calm the erratic mind and the freaked out tired body.
At silent moments like this the mind gets to be noticed, and all its wild ideas seen to cross the screen of closed eye vision.
Moments of silent stillness, help to move out of a situation and see the cause of worry and disturbance, and hence, a remedy.
The brain gets a washing ,with no new ideas , and hence a clarity of thought for sane decision making and a state of dehynotised freedom.
