"The Sound Of Silence"
by Simon and Garfunkel
Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence
As we progress in our journey back home and approach the first milestone, Level 1 Moksha, the experience of a sound in the head may be noticed. To some this is like a monotoned, high-pitched "eeeeeeeee....." and to others is takes on more of a flute-like melody. Modern medicine has a theory about this, they call it "tinnitus" and occasionally there is a sound that arises as a result of injury, illness or trauma. But if you are meditating or adopting an inward, reflective lifestyle, not exposed to loud sounds that could have damaged your ears, and spontaneously one day you notice this sound, usually it comes occasionally at first, perhaps when meditating, then you notice it outside of meditation and eventually all the time, this is Krishna's Flute. Congratulations! This is a common experience and nothing be concerned about, actually you can celebrate that you are one step closer to Moksha.
Everywhere there are pictures of Krishna playing a flute. This quality of Krishna, the one who plays the flute, is mentioned throughout the Vedic Literature. Why? To let you know that when you begin to hear this sound, you are awaking to Krishna's call to return home to Him.
