To be fully with Silence requires that we develop a capacity to be present to both the most subtle qualities of objective touch imaginable and to the manner in which this touch resonates the soul interiorly. That is, to be fully present to this experience, we have to be inside ourselves and outside ourselves at the same time. It is also possible in practice to alternate between emphasizing the interior quality by putting our attention at the level of the interior of the body and then emphasizing the exterior quality by putting our attention at the level of the outer form of our body. Alternating attention like this while we are in Silence can help us come to experience the fullness of this phenomenon. The varied qualities of Silence have been enumerated so that we may gradually come to experience the complex nature of Silence and in experiencing its complexity begin to feel something quite extraordinary. We begin to have moments in which we experience ourselves as Time Beings, not beings in time. ~Robert Sardello
how aware are we of spiritually excusing ourselves when the quiet becomes too deep?….
inquiry for today~ can you sit just a little longer? can you breathe into the depths of your own witness?
Now it is time to sit quiet
alone with You
and to Sing
a re-dedication of my life
in this Silent
and overflowing joy.
