Am I seeing THIS moment through the mind or Silence? New MJ Awakening Blog

god in silence

AM I SEEING THIS MOMENT THROUGH THE MIND’S IMAGES, BELIEFS AND FEARS OR IN SILENCE? (aka, YOU CAN’T DANCE AT TWO WEDDINGS.)

“Your mind has to be truly silent, empty of thoughts and concepts. It has to become a state of receptivity. Complete silence. While you are looking out into whatever happens to be your current scenery with a false ‘knowing’ that you are ‘short of money’ or ‘lacking in health’ or ‘lonely’ or ‘limited’ in some way your mind is busy entertaining belief-images of its own making.

While it’s doing so Spiritual Allness cannot penetrate. It forever wants to. It is forever ready to. It is forever pushing at your consciousness trying to burst through. But your mind is busy with images, fears and schemes of its own making, thereby shutting Spirit out.”

-Paul F. Gorman

THINKING COVERS PEACE UP, SILENCE REVEALS IT

Right where the mind is claiming incompleteness, lack, not-enoughness, is only ever Wholeness/Peace/Infinite Presence.

there is a voice that doesnt use words rumi

Every moment you’re not thinking, you ARE Silence. And in Silence, there are no words, which means there are no problems, no fears, no anxiety, no criticisms, no judgments, no nothing. Just Silence.

“Oh, this is just escapism…” says the mind. Blah, blah, blah… more mind noise, more “not Silence.”

You can’t think your way to Silence.

You can only BE Silence.

“Oh, but it’s not easy to quiet the mind.” Blah, blah, blah… more noise. “But I have responsibilities that require thinking…” Blah, blah, blah…

Being Silence means being Silence and nothing else.

Is that one, this imagined persona/character/idea of a separate entity actually, literally, ME?? New MJ Awakening Blog

The question is not whether or not my character/action figure/persona/sense-of-me has ups and downs throughout its day. Of course it does.

All “human beings” experience the + and – of duality. There is no escaping this. The ocean can be calm one moment and stormy the next… and it doesn’t require “a reason” to change!

So, the only question, ever, is:

Is that one, this imagined persona/character/idea of a separate entity actually, literally, ME??

Or, am I always, come what may, the observer of that one?

This is what must be looked into deeply in one’s own Heart.
