Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Found another quote were Ram Dass describes a similar state of consciousness:

The Dass Effect

Ram Dass said the stroke had taught him to appreciate silence: "In my head there's a dressing room where my concepts become clothed in words. But that dressing room has been bombed out. I can have clear thoughts but no words for them, so when I speak, you'll see, every once in a while . . . silence." He invited the crowd to "play in the silence" with him, and for the next three hours, when he fell quiet, a peacefulness seemed to descend on the room as people relaxed with him.

I have experienced silence for a few short moments during meditation, but never this kind of full silence. Way to go! :-)
