Silience: The Art of Being

Aug 17, 2007
Why do we always feel the need to be productive? Always having to be on the move or keep our mind occupied. It feels like any time there is silence we have to fill it with some thing, god forbid there be a moment of uncomfortable silence to reflect in. It almost appears as though we are scared to spend a moment in silence. As though we're afraid of what we might come to realize during our silent contemplation.

To reflect on your own personal reality is one of the most effective ways to get in alignment with your goals, desires and passion. Most people are not even aware of what they want to experience in life; they've become caught up in being "comfortable" keeping busy in order to continue being "comfortable" that they forget that there is an entire universe of possibilities awaiting them.

Silence is the key. From the silence can we begin to see cleary what we want to create in our reality. We must have the idea before we can start to build. The art of contemplation breeds change. We humans are not meant to be like gerbils, running on the treadmill of life. We must be still and listen to ourselves for a change in order to surpass the lifestyle and experience of previous generations.

Can you sit still in complete silence with your eyes closed and your hands in your lap? Could you do that for 15 minutes a day for the rest of your life? Try! Do it and see what happens. I guarantee you will see change in your life if you do this. You will begin to build a relationship with yourself that you once had when you were a child, before your mind became poisened by preconcieved notions. But don't beleive me, do it yourself!

This simple yet underestimated way of experiencing reality is one of the missing pieces to bringing a grander experience of life to every one. Being in complete silence alone or with other people allows you to just be. They should teach a course in school called "Silience: The Art of Being". We must go back to our infant nature and stop trying to fool ourselves in to thinking that we have it all together and understand all aspects of reality.

If we allow the idea that "we have to always be productive" to be prominate in every moment of life it will only hinder our growth as human beings. We'll never take a moment to look and say, hey wait a minute if we keep walking the path we're walking its only going to create more and more suffering, maybe we should change course. With out moments of silence, with our breaks in unconscious mind patterns, we won't be able to co-create a new reality for all human beings to live in. We need to take that time and experience the simplicity silence.

Maybe we'll all finally realize that we're just children convinced that we're adults.

Sit.
