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!

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

The Way of Silence

silent_space

Spiritual power enables me to  maintain stability in the face of any situation – good or bad. It is a state of being that allows me to remain positive and empowered within myself, without dependency or influence of any external factor.

To develop this power I need to embrace silence. Silence allows me to hold my awareness within my inner space. If I can remain internalised, in this way, I will be able to remain connected with my thoughts, feelings and attitudes.

When I start to turn inwards I will see how silence becomes the anchor which allows me to chose. Inner silence hands back to me the power of choice. It gives me the ability to think before speaking, step back before judging and a space to understand before engaging in action.

Silence gives me the power of choice at every moment. A chance to choose to remain happy and peaceful whenever I wish. This is known as spiritual power.

 

Om Shanti

My Still Point

fear_thoughts

Let me take the opportunity, right now, to connect with my still point.

Sitting quietly I allow the body to become quiet.

Turning my attention inwards I become the detached observer of my thoughts. As thoughts arise I watch them and see that the majority of my thoughts, if not all of them, are of the past or the future. When my mind strays towards the past or the future, when I move away from this moment now, I lose connection with my still point.

Let me consciously become present in the now with my thoughts and feelings. Let me focus on the silence that this moment holds – let me allow myself to experience that still point where I am beyond all thoughts.

To be in the still point means to experience the true self without the costumes and masks of roles and responsibilities. Within the still point is the awareness of truth and as a result the experience of total freedom – liberation.

How often does the mind allow me to be in this still point? Let me give myself permission to become still – it is my mind after all.

 

Om Shanti

My Still Reality

Spiritual_power

Take a moment to become still.

Let the body become still….allow the mind to become still.
Feel the subtle energy around the body and allow that to also come to a point of stillness.

Now become aware of the soul, the consciousness within. Notice that it has become so still.

Within this stillness let me listen to the silence. Feel and experience the silence.

In the moment is held my reality. Who I am, what I am and what I need to do.

This is my reality.

 

Om Shanti

Step into Silence

silence

One would think that, compared to the big attractive physical world we live in, the inner world of silence would be dull, empty and insignificant.

However when I allow myself to let go, of everything that pulls me out into this physical ‘reality’, and step into my own inner space, then I will see and experience the value of silence.

It is the space in which I come face to face with the reality of myself. The self that cannot be seen but only be experienced. The realisation of my real identity – my eternity, my power and my beauty.

It is a space that is without the ‘noise’ – the sound, colour, movement – of the physical world which diverts me and attracts me outwards again and again. It is only in this space of inner silence that the self can be realised.

My inner silence is deep, subtle and full of riches. There is a very tangible experience of total contentment and of having reached.

Step into silence.

 

Om Shanti
