Peace, Silence and Power

mahabharat

Peace of mind begins when there is no waste or negativity within my thinking. It is then that the incognito battle within the mind stops. Thoughts slow down and become few and I experience peace within my mind.

If I allow anything to come and disturb this state of thinking then I myself am responsible for the peacelessness that arises. Peace or peacelessness are a state of mind. Peace cannot be kept by force, it can only be achieved through understanding.

From peace I consciously take a step into silence. I connect with the feelings and vibrations around me and within me. This opens the door to experience the subtlety of my authentic self.

Within the experience of self, the power of spirit emerges. A spiritual strength which gives a sense of contentment and completeness. Of having reached my destination.

 

Om Shanti

I Stand Still

silent_space

I stand still in this present moment of silence. The world also stops and becomes silently still – united with me in this deep and meaningful experience.

I become so still inside – in my thoughts and in my feelings.

This moment feels like the first and also the last moment within my own eternity.

It is the most authentic, unadulterated, original experience – and my soul dances in silences, within that stillness, as it touches its natural state of being.

 

Om Shanti

My Authentic Self

consciousness

Let me take a moment to stop. Stop physical activity, stop the thoughts in my mind and the feelings in my heart.

Having stopped let me now take a step inwards into that space that is at the very core of my being. That sacred space where I am alone with my conscience …my authentic self.

What is the authentic self – Is it my name, my role, my position or possessions? When I become focused in this space, detached from activity, thoughts and feelings, I realise that I am none of these.

My authentic and real self is the in-visible spirit within this body. Authentic is that which is original and always. That which is today and will be tomorrow. Let me take a moment to see, understand and experience the authentic self.

Everything in life changes, even my own personality and so what is authentic within the self?

 

Om Shanti

Am I Extroverted?

extrovert

Extroversion has many forms and we have developed a habit of extroversion as a means of dealing with life.

When we are extroverted we try to prove or project an image of our self which we are not really inside. Living too long with this habit or interaction divorces us from our self over time.

Projecting an image of ‘being good’ is a trap that we fall into so that others will like us , love us or respect us. The long term consequence of this is that we lose our connection with our self and our authenticity. We lose the ability to be comfortable in our own skin.

By being extroverted we hide the truth from the world but, worse we also distract ourselves from having to face the truth.

There is a place inside us that goes beyond this limited ‘I’ and ‘me’. Developing the practice of introspection will allow us to connect with our authentic self – the one that needs no external supports or approvals and no facade to sustain.

Take a moment out and sit quietly. Let go of all that you know about yourself and in silence take a journey to the core of your spiritual self. Sit in the awareness and the company of your own silent and gentle, authentic self.

Develop the habit of introversion!

 

Om Shanti
