I am a spiritual being

I

I am a spiritual being – a spirit, a soul, an energy that is not visible to the human eye.

The thoughts and feelings that are generated through my mind form a layer of subtle energy around the soul. This is then expressed in a gross form of energy we recognise as words and action. When words and actions are expressed through the body they enable me to build relationships with the world, people and situations in the world.

I move from a core truth of my subtle existence into a gross form and personality and a physical existence. And over time I learn to live in the reality of this outer most world that I myself manifested – believing it to be real and true.

However this manifestation is not ‘I’ at all because I am the spirit, the unseen soul at the very core.I take a moment, become still and silent. In my mind and consciousness, I separate myself from the manifestation – from the layers of creation and creativity…….

I take a moment, become still and silent. In my mind and consciousness, I separate myself from the manifestation – from the layers of creation and creativity…….In this moment I experience my own eternity and the reality of spirit. The spiritual ‘I’ without a name, gender or form.

In this moment I experience my own eternity and the reality of spirit. The spiritual ‘I’ without a name, gender or form. I am

I am spirit.

Free from Thoughts

peace

I have heard it say that, if I silence the mind of all thoughts then I will experience peace of mind.

From nature we understand that one seed gives fruit from which many more seeds will be produced – and so it is with thoughts – one thought gives rise to many other thoughts which then go on to result in many feelings, words, actions and reactions. Perhaps then if I am able to focus on the mind, and ensure it remains quiet, then I will remain stable, detached and in control – mentally, emotionally and physically at peace.

However, thoughts, like seeds produce fruit. Without thoughts it is not possible to get a return. If I plant positive, peaceful and empowering thoughts then the fruit that I will experience within my life will also reflect that. So peace can be experienced through the practice of creating peaceful thoughts within the mind and not as a result of no thoughts – which in fact yield no return.

Let me not try and control my mind but instead learn to transform my negative, critical and wasteful thoughts into positive and peaceful thought so that then what manifests in my life also reflects the same.

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

Courage to Hold Silence

bodyconsciousness

Within silence I become present and mindful. In that moment there is complete clarity and awareness.

Silence of words is important but the experience of silence within my thoughts and feelings is profound.

I wish to reach, and then remain, in this state where silence works like an engine for everything else to follow. And for this it is necessary to give priority to silencing my own inner world – that is my mind and my intellect.

As it stands my mind is constantly generating thoughts consciously and subconsciously. My intellect is using its understanding and learnt cleverness to decide, discern and judge what I should do, how and when.

When I renounce the need to hold and process information in my mind I will allow silence to take priority. Then I will cultivate a vibration of internal silence as a priority in my life.

The power of this silence will enable answers to emerge without the influence of my own thoughts and feeling – Imagine that!

Do I have the courage to hold onto my inner silence no matter what?

 

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

The Voice of Intuition

self_realisation

The voice of intuition comes from the deepest and wisest self – from within my pure conscience.

To hear my intuition I need to become silent.
Silence of words and noises is not enough to hear the voice from within my conscious. Total inner silence is needed. The silence of thoughts and feelings that are unseen but cause so much ‘noise’ within.

When the mind becomes quiet and the heart detached then the intellect also becomes silent as it has no reason to discern. Then within this space my inner ear has the capacity to hear the voice of intuition.

The silent voice of intuition whispers truth from the all knowing self.
To hear the voice or ignore it is then a matter of choice.

 

Om Shanti

Defensive Listening

Am_I_extroverted

Listening is an art that I can truly master only when I am able to be absolutely silent within.

Often whilst listening I hear my inner voice activating a running commentary which continues to criticise, judge, analyse that which is being spoken. Irrespective of who or what I am ‘listening’ to there is a constant critic in action within.

Why do I do this? What is behind this auto pilot critic?

Looking closer at my internal processing I realise that when I am listening I am often holding an attitude of ‘defence’. Internally that little voice is defending my idea, my work, my position etc. My listening, and thus what I hear, is influenced by an attitude that has already taken a position of ‘defence’.

If I truly want to listen and understand the truth behind what is being spoken then I need to learn to listen with an attitude which is free from fear. There is actually no right and wrong or good and bad – it is a matter of perspective and just because someone else has a different perspective it does not make mine wrong.

When I spend time in silence I begin to free myself of deep rooted fears and expectations. This then allows me to truly listen without the need to judge or justify anything.

 

Om Shanti

Within Silence

Spiritual_Pilgrimage

Silence is understood by many as a state in which there is an absence of any physical sound. From a spiritual perspective there is far more to it than that.

If I can stop for a few moments and become quiet – dis-engage from my physically senses and move away from the need to think or feel, I will find myself moving towards stillness. There is a natural detachment from all that is around me, the people, the things and the stories.

Although in this stillness it would seem that we are not ‘doing anything’, the wonder is that this stillness leads us into silence – which attracts the soul like a magnet. Silence is the doorway through which the soul experience many deep, rich and timeless experiences.

In silence I begin to experience the connection of the self, myself, with eternity and ultimately my connection with the Supreme.

Oh the wonder of silence!

 

Om Shanti

Wisdom of Silence

introversion

Deep within our consciousness each one of us holds an awareness of truth and innate wisdom. The soul is eternal, it has always existed and so why should it not be all knowing?

When I am silent and still, the power from that silence sharpens my inner capacity and ability to understand. The silent state allows the habit of continuous thinking and analysing to subside and enables the soul to express its eternal wisdom. This is a very natural experience as though the capacity to know with clarity and far-sightedness is already part of my psyche.

From that inner space of stillness, inspiration emerges. Inspiration which comes from a pure and detached place of eternal wisdom. It unfolds itself, in front of me, without any justification and I merely observe, knowing undoubtingly that this is the truth.

Beyond my capacity of clever thinking and intellectual analysis, the power of silence, reveals wisdom from deep within the all knowing self.

Om Shanti

The Gift of Silence

the_root_of_peacelessness

When we are born into this world we are given the gift of life. Our senses awaken to allow us to experience life to the fullest possible.

We use our physical senses – the eyes and the ears, our nose and mouth to experience and interact with life itself…Wow! such an amazing gift!

But the greatest gift that we receive in this life is the ability to step back, from all that we know as life, detach from those invaluable senses that bring sound and colour into life, and step into silence.

We are not aware when the sound and colour moves into noise and pollution and in that ignorance we also become polluted with the same. Then we lose our happiness and contentment.

Take time to switch off the senses and step into the silence that awaits you within. The sacred still space of power and realisation.

Become aware of the greatest gift of life … the invisible, soundless silence of the soul.

 

Om Shanti
