A State of trance

When I walk alone in the deep sea of love, I think I am alone but I am not. I am in a trance, a trance that is neither created nor built, neither brought nor thought…it’s a trance which has always been there, sometime conscious sometimes unconscious.

It’s a trance of harshness, a trance of sadness, a trance of passion, a trance of intensity, a state of compassion, a thought of romanticism..all in one. Yes all in one!

In moments of frustration and sadness, I am in deep trance of emotions. Sometimes the emotions are like the sea before a storm…all silent, all calm. A few waves here and there …then suddenly tides of passion with wrath take over but are soon undertaken by the bouts of depression.

The trance is where your eyes are no more just a sensing organ. Your eyes are source of revelation…your eyes are a source of passion and an outlet of emotions. The tears pour down and a sense of relaxation takes over you.

The ears are not just hearing, but also filtering what you want to listen. The voice of the air, yes the air’s voice passes by to the soul but the voice of people is blocked. Voices of your breathing are too strong to do away with the voices of those who seem senseless at least right now!

Your hands are still, like rocks or stones. Heavy and numb, you can’t feel them as if your limbs are broken or taken away. You can neither move nor think of lifting them up. You have never been so light and helpless at the same time!

This is trance, the trance which connects you to another state of your own subconscious. Experiencing trance is just like exploring a sea shell that you collected once in your childhood but dropped it years ago under your bed. Now, if you have found it, make the most of it!

One thought on “A State of trance

  1. What I am going to write in response has no bearing on your article but in a way it is linked historically.

    The Assassins ie Hashashins of the Ismaeli sect during the Crusades near Alamut were drugged by their mentor Hassan Ibn Sabah with Hashish to kill their enemies and that brought them into a state of trance where they did not know about their surroundings but were in a dwelling of their own dreams!

    In their state of trance they were told to assassinate their enemies and in a very close call for Saladin the famous general he was almost assassinated by one of these Hashashins.

    They were a remarkable order that was able to last till the time of the Mongols or even after that which I don’t know about.

    Amazing to see what a human being is capable of doing in a state of trance is unprecedented! Everybody in their way do experience the state of trance in someway or the other!

    Anam your way of experiencing it is very normal and ask the addicts who take heroine and cannabis or cocaine! I have seen what happens to them with my own two eyes! Not a pleasant sight their state of trance and when it ends they go on a rampaging spree!

    And lastly keep on writing. You do a wonderful job. Blessings to you.
