Megha Bajaj gives herself a momentary break from the workaday routine to enter her inner Silence
In the busyness of her day, through the humdrum, she knew she needed her reprieve, and she closed her eyes.
The gnarled old trees seemed to be meditating. The sparkling river flowing through the forest too seemed to be in contemplation, and even in her movement, one could sense a stillness. The red-naped bird sang her song in Silence. Everything was quiet. Everything seemed to be bathed in mysticism. Waiting. For something. For someone. For The One!
And there she came. Flowing curls. Huge eyes filled with wonder. Thin lips, like rosebuds. The forest seemed to come alive with her presence. She sat by the river and just watched.
Away from her life as an author, away from all the roles she played so well, all the doing that she did complete justice to. Here was her Silence, her own space, within the chambers of her mind. She retreated here every now and then, and it gave to all that was outside her.
This forest was hers. Known. And yet, its depth remained unknown even to her. And each time she entered, she had no clue just how far she would tread and what would transpire. Though she entered it daily, what would happen here remained a mystery even to her. Sometimes she just sat; othertimes she danced around her peacock-coloured Krishna. Sometimes it was peace that enveloped her; othertimes, bliss. Sometimes she even carried questions from her life outside to this forest within and mulled over answers. And more often than not, found them.
Although the soft mud under her bare feet existed only in her mind, it was real. Though the breeze that caressed her cheeks was a figment of her imagination, it never failed to tousle her crazy hair. Everything about this forest was as real to her as her writing desk, her cup of mocha, her pink quilt outside.
Sometimes she wondered if there were two worlds—the one outside her and this one within. But, over time, she began to realise that it was just one, connected in such an incomprehensible way.
How else could she explain that the moment she came into her forest and Silenced herself, the peace could be felt for hours even when she opened her eyes.
How else could she explain that each time there was a discordance with someone in the world outside—when she retreated to her forest and sent love and peace to them—it made a difference to the relationship.
And how could she ever explain that so much of what existed in her life outside had been seeded in her Silence, in her forest. Her forest was literally her womb of creation, and all that she saw there, in time and with efforts, became a reality.
How she wished she could tell everyone in the world to find That Silence, those woods, the sparkling river, the red-naped bird within. For it was so intimate. So personal. So powerful. And yes, so Silent.
Her eyes fluttered open to the beep of a WhatsApp message.
She felt ready.
To do what she must.
For she knew, in time, she would once again be in the depths of her forest.
