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?
I sit quietly with myself. I allow my thoughts to slowly focus and become present in the moment, now.
I feel deep appreciation and connectedness with myself. My whole world is here, inside of me.
The place is inside.
The questions are inside.
The answers are inside.
The results are felt inside.
And in fact, I am actually also inside.
I realise the importance of keeping my inside clean, clear and pure. The need for myself to be careful not to develop a negative attitude towards the self or to be too critical of the self.
A great deal of love, patience and understanding is required. Then all that is on the inside will begin to shine outside and touch all aspects of my life.
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.
Someone said something, someone did, or did not, do something and I am hurt by that. No matter how much I wish to stay in a positive and happy place, it seems as though others influence and change that. They continue to hurt me and cause me pain and sorrow.
However the fact is that I have no control over anything or anyone except myself. When I deeply and practically learn to accept this in my life then I will realise that no one can ever hurt me. People can behave as they wish to but it is what I do with someone’s negative behaviour – the shape and power I give that negativity inside my mind – that will decide if it causes me to hurt or not.
It is not an easy lesson to accept but the reality is that how I choose to respond is entirely in my hands. .
Let me empower the self by applying this lesson practically in my life from this moment onwards. Let me chose to remain happy.
I turn inwards and through the window of my inner eye, I look into the world within.
I watch and I listen to the incessant internal chattering and the scenes of drama that are being enacted. I see the various characters of my personality at play. How the ‘goodness’ within is influenced by other more negative aspects of the self. How jealousy plays out its role and greed and even irritation. And the biggest and strongest player of all is that of my ‘all knowing’ ego.
I observe that these negative characters actually ‘fight’ for me, for what they believe to be advantageous for me. However in doing so they weaken and even kill the purest and honest ‘goodness’ that I possess intrinsically and naturally within the soul.
It is my own inner world and I am the hero of this world – yet I allow the characters to play out their parts without any direction or control. The responsibility actually lies with the self, The Director, and not the characters or the play.
Let me wake up to my inner world and let me play my hero part there.
When my inner world is healthy then the outer one will follow suit.
There is an universal spiritual law that says – what I Express, I will Experience.
Like a boomerang, whatever I emit into the universe will come back to me. The time it takes to return is uncertain and variable but every thought, word and action will come back to me as a ‘gift’ from the past.
At every moment I have a choice of what and how I express. Then what comes back to me in the form of experience, I have no control over.
Understanding this and deeply accepting it will allow my subconscious mind to imbibe it. Unless I have imbibed it into by ‘belief system’, my present behaviour pattern will not change.
The situations and people that come to me in life are the ‘gifts’ from the past. Let me choose to respond to them wisely so that the ‘gifts’ I receive tomorrow create the experiences I wish to have.
