Sri Sri Ravi Shankar - The purpose of words is to create silence. If words create more noise, then they have not reached their goal. Buddha's words would definitely create silence, because Buddha is the manifestation of silence. 2) Higher state of consciousness is where the normal state, the intuitions develop, the ability to see to perceive, all this happens. The highest is the simplest. All that we need to do is to let go. Let go and you will see the simplest and the most beautiful state of our being that’s been with us all the time and has never left us.
