In the stillness anything is possible, yet nothing is required.
“My thinking is peaceful, calm and centered.”
Recently I’ve watched a few different families struggle with conflict. The circumstances of each are significantly different; however, the imbalance always begins with an alignment with Ego instead of an alignment with Love.
Typically, when someone is off balance, they can be very vocal about it. Ego requires others to agree with it, to fight with it, to react to it – anything to feed it energetically. This can range from voicing strong opinions or expressing fear to outright attack.
For this reason I often counsel people to utilize silence or to teach by example. When one is secure in their perception and it is not ego driven, there is no need to talk about it. It shines through each loving action and others feel that sense of peace merely by being in their presence.
Everyone should have a confidant or a teacher off whom they can bounce ideas or thoughts which need discussion – the silence I speak of here is related more to everyday life and everyday situations.
“Learn to be silent. Let your quiet mind listen and absorb.”
~ Pythagoras (580 BC- 500 BC)
“All man’s miseries derive from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone.”
~ Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
It is the space between the notes which creates the beauty in music. Without the space and intent, there is only noise. Learn to be the space in the symphony of your life – be compassion… be stillness and purposely align yourself with love.
Today my intention is to appreciate the silence and stillness behind the noise and movement of life.
