The serene yet pseudo silence of mind
The gigantic wheel of mind never really stops. If you do not know what it is about, please read no further. It is personal and private. Find some other sensation do not bother with this rambling.

Do you have mind of your own? Great. Because I don’t. I am frequently able to borrow the mind for doing certain tasks but that’s it. Rest if the time, the mind is on its own.

Speech is unique gift to humans. Other creatures can only yearn for speech while few may imitate human speech without understanding a word.
We take our speech for granted. However communication with speech is not always easy, we have already seen that. So what we do when we are not really trying to communicate?
We are concerned how Governments are being run? Why Corporations are ruthless? How people’s representatives hardly represent anyone but themselves? How people at the helm of affairs, are and were, always callous and insensitive if not ruthless to people? We wonder why is it so?
