“When mind is still, then
truth gets her chance to be heard
in the purity of the silence.” Sri Aurobindo
“Silence is the basis and the background of everything. We are an expression of this primordial silence and stillness. But the habits of our mind overlay this simple truth and keep us from experiencing ourselves as a full-spectrum human being.
… we awaken to our true nature and experience the deep nourishment that comes with this realization. As we recognize and embody our true nature, our conditioning naturally dissolves and we see that when we rest in silence we can move into anything in life, including chaos and sorrow, with a sense of ease and well-being. … we learn that deep inquiry is not something the mind does, but the process of love perceiving its own nature through your physical form.” Sharon Landrith
"If you try to apply these teachings without a connection to silence, they get top-heavy and intellectual. Breathe and drop into your heart space in order to feel what is happening.
Stop trying to solve (exclusively) through understanding. Just drop into your own being and let the quiet space within you glow. Otherwise, (meditation) practices won’t allow a transformation to happen." Adyashanti, "A Revolution of Being" 3-Month Online Retreat
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
"True meditation is abidance as primordial awareness." Adyashanti
