In this noisy world where many have become addicted for the need of audio stimulation on a constant basis, there is not much room for silence and stillness. Many have forgotten that in the silence produced by stillness is where creation forces live and in order to receive them we need to be quiet. Sages through the ages have called silence/stillness the language of creative muses and all else is clutter to that process. Stillness allows us to access the void, the no thing where all probabilities and possibilities dwell. In the stillness we become conscious allowing us to access the formless dimensions where we eternally live and all inspiration resides.
To be silence, to be still is to be conscious without the activity of the mental body, thinking. We are authentically our self when we are still. When we are still, we are who we were before the emotions, mind and physical body took over. When we are still we are who we are beyond form, connecting to our eternal formless beingness.
