There is a part of you that is perfect and pure. It is untouched by the less than perfect characteristics you’ve acquired by living in a less than perfect world.
It is filled with divine qualities, so is in a constant state of resourcefulness and well-being. Its total absence of conflict and negativity of any sort makes this part of you a Still-Point -a deep enriching experience of silence.
Make time to practice reaching this inner place of silence. It will bring you untold benefit.
First it allows you to manage your thoughts better. Your will find, for example, that there is no need to think as much as you do, that much of all that you need will emerge, effortlessly, as you simply sit in silence.
Second, the experience of silence releases you from the grip of your negative programming and conditioning. You will more easily experience the truth of your inner peace and dignity – this further aids the mind in remaining focused and capable.
Third – the power of silence can be shared. As you increase your power of silence, your power can help those without power to continue in their efforts of self-development and the experience of peace.
Your stock of silence plus and additional stock of true, powerful thought will help others to go beyond the limited into the unlimited and the divine.
It feels good to ‘go beyond’ in this way; to leave behind thought and speech and become quiet for a little while. It’s so refreshing and nourishing; it’s habit forming. Love for spiritual introversion, solitude and silence complements our life in such a beautiful way.
