Every walking moment we are thinking. This is so in dreams, too. This addiction to thought results in tensions, anxieties, and worries. The mind is splintered by multifarious thoughts. The question therefore arises as to whether there is an alternative to this chaotic mind. This is found in the method stressed by Ramana Maharshi known as self-enquiry. In self enquiry, the attention is on the core of the mind, the central ‘I’ thought, on the thinker, away from the innumerable thoughts. Such attention, backed by Maharshi’s guidance, leads to the discovery of the naturally peaceful and silent mind, and the joy of it. Then one works in an atmosphere of tranquility and inner poise. Life itself would be a sport to be enjoyed to the brim. The mind would be unifocussed, alter, attentive. There would be a confluence of work and wisdom.
