THE ANSWERS LIVE IN SILENCE

“In quietness are all things answered and is every problem quietly resolved.” A Course In Miracles

“Today I will be still and listen.”

Listening is probably the singular most important activity we can perform for the changing of our minds and our lives. And yet we seldom take a moment to do it. Being still is perhaps our one greatest challenge. We were not taught how growing up and most of us in the western world can’t even begin to understand the value of a silent mind.

And yet …

In silence are the answers to every question.  In silence lives the still, small voice of God radiating His Love through us, His Children, if only we would listen.  It isn’t that God’s voice is small; it’s just that our egos are so noisy. Scientific tests have proven that in being still there are changes in the brain that bring peace to the spirit.

There is listening to God and there is listening to ourselves and others. Begin simply. The next time you are in conversation with someone, practice looking into their eyes and really listen to them. Don’t jump ahead to your next response, but simply take yourself out of the equation and listen. Breathe calmly, quietly and listen.  Listen not just to their words, but to their hearts. You will hear their pain and their joy. You will hear beyond words to their very thoughts and feelings. To their very energy.

And then find a moment in the day, even for a minute or two to grow still and listen to your own breath, your own heart and open to your own energy. In the beginning even a minute or two is enough. As you do this you will begin to experience feelings you’ve never recognized before and travel to a place inside you that you didn’t know existed. This is the place of inner peace, of Divine Love and delight and joy that lives inside you and is waiting to be heard. The more we tap into this inward world, the more time we will want to spend there.
