Silence, is it the language of the 'Soul'?
    #3886459 - 03/08/05 10:39 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Silence is it the universal language of the soul? True inner silence is unpolluted by anxieties, habitual preoccupations and refrains, noisy internal static, innuendoes, or agendas. Inner silence speaks directly to inner peace, which is beyond the dualism of noise and quiet. To question the purpose of silence is like asking about the purpose of fresh air, for no one can live without at least a modicum of it.

Many of the qualities we attribute to a divine spirit of love or sacred presence reflect the truest and most sacred silence. Divine silence is accepting, non-judgmental, forgiving, open-minded, and great hearted. Divine silence implies the ability to listen, to hear, and to love. When we communicate with the sacred, whether we think of it as being an inner or outer presence, these are the qualities we take for granted. These are the qualities we are seeking to nurture in ourselves as we cultivate the sacred within...  :heart:

Do you belive in a 'Universal Soul'?

:thumbup:

"I realized in this place that people feared silence more than anything else, that our tendency to talk arises from self-defense and is always based upon a reluctance to see something, a reluctance to confess something to oneself.

Directly a person is quiet himself, that is, awakes a little, he hears the different intonations and begins to distinguish other people's lies." ~Ouspensky.


"The more you talk about it, the more you think about it, the further from it you go; STOP TALKING, STOP THINKING, AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU WILL NOT UNDERSTAND." ~Seng-t'san


"Those who know do not talk
And talkers do not know." ~Tao Te Ching


"Ephrem the Syrian says, 'Good speech is silver, but silence is pure gold.'" ~Way of a Pilgrim.


"Oh Lord, Thou shalt open my lips, and my mouth shall declare Thy praise." ~Bible



"The second you speak or think, you are back in 'time'. Once you become still and silent, you become timeless; fully here-now. The mind may still ramble on incessantly, but you no longer think you are the mind. The mind and it's compulsive thoughts is merely a part of your body just as much as the radio and it's speaker, or television with it's programs in your room. With this self-[less] realization, comes the benediction of inner peace." ~SkorpivoMusterion

I have come to believe that what people don't say is more important than what they DO say.

Reading between the lines is a kind of lost art.

By means that everything is connected? I certainly do, because everything is.

If we ignore our basic connection to other beings, we lose our connection to our own humanity and ability to act compassionatly towards others. That is a tragic loss, we shouldnt take our soul for granted.... :heart:

For millions of years mankind lived just like the animals

Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination

We learned to talk

Then we got too involved in the stories we told, until we coudl'nt distinguish the truth from the lies. Silence never lies!  :heart:

when you trip on mushrooms, do you ever experience that silence?

with no thoughts what's left is oneness.

less clutter

observe without judgement, experience without noise. then the connection can set in.  :heart:

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

Once on mushrooms, i was experiencing a spiritual crisis, to help with this i attempted to calm myself with a little mediattion. What started out as a little turned into a full 8 hour session, after the first hour I became calm and peacful amit the waves of images and sensations, then i had an overwhelming experience of connectiveness with the universe and all beings, in one moment, an instant, that lasted a few hours, but felt like forever. After that i have never been the same, im constantly seeking to awaken that silent heart of interconnectivness....... :heart:

Infinity is Open Ended........ :heart: :grin:
