Q: What’s the purpose of silencing the mind in spiritual practice?…new MJ Awakening Blog

silence

 

The point of silencing the mind is so you can access a deeper knowing. It’s always here, but as long your attention is on ego and its chattering away about its endless schemes, desires, worries and concerns, the deeper wisdom within you remains obscured.

In other words, when the “me” is there, God, Source, Universal Intelligence, etc. isn’t noticed. When “me” is not there, guess what is left? That’s right, the Truth that was not seen because our attention was on the false.
