There is a lunatic living inside your head. This lunatic is feeding your mind with fear based thoughts that are distorting your clearest, highest and most accurate perception of the world.
In Zen they call this Monkey Mind. In A Course in Miracles and psychology they call this Ego. The author Steven Pressfield calls this Resistance.
Ego is not your friend.
But you need not be victimized by the fearful, negative, angry thoughts of this lunatic. You can get clear. You can center yourself. You can ease your mind and transcend the lunatic.
The calm you seek is inside of you and as close as your next breath. Meditation can take you there, Music can take you there, Nature can take you there, your Beloved can take you there.
Go there. And go back there as often as you possibly can.
The choice of Love over Fear is yours and it’s the most important choice you will make every day of your life.
At night if you’re silent enough
…if you’re centered enough
…if you’re open enough
you can hear
the music of the spheres
Spheres, Muses, Angels
singing, whispering their secrets
The secrets you’ve known
for ten thousand years
but had forgotten
until just now
We live in the information age.
This can be a blessing and a curse all at the same time.
While we have access to humankind’s cumulative knowledge at our fingertips, it’s easy to get lost in the sea of data that constantly streams across our computer screens, televisions, radios and smart phones.
We inherit the information of a billion souls, yet lose touch with the connection to our own.
Too often we are overstimulated by the nonstop cacophony of information that our miraculous technology delivers.
Eons of generations before us naturally had access to extended periods of silence. Especially as night fell and there was no electricity to power the devices that not only inform us, but distract us from the wellspring of guidance and wisdom that dwells within.
More than any previous generation, we have lost touch with silence.
It becomes more difficult to hear that still, small voice that guides, informs and inspires.
All the more reason to consciously, regularly choose to allow silence in our lives.
Go off grid.
Rediscover the silence and the darkness.
There are life changing secrets being whispered to you.
