These feelings are so pervasive within our collective mindset, especially in our Western culture, that they seem almost normal.
The truth is that our normal state of being has nothing to do with feeling anxious or worried or feeling like the end of the world may come at any moment or any variation of such sorts of thoughts.
The truth is that everything is in its perfect divine order in every moment, and that’s an absolute fact that goes beyond all conjecture.
How can we know this?
It’s because it simply is what is.

The Power Of Silence
Now today what I’d like to do is to share with you more about the power of silence and how it brings you sanity and clarity that transcends that monkey mind.
My experience has been that in any moment we’re feeling heavy, or our mind starts to race, and we feel like we’re totally losing our grip with our life, and we’re buying all our stories, all the stories going on like, “Extra, extra, read all about it!”
We’re promoting our own stories for ourselves and then we defend them, and we get all uptight and we begin to believe them.
Let’s take one like money…
“Money, oh my God! I’m going to run out of money! I don’t know if I’ll have enough money. I won’t be able to pay the bills and then – I don’t know – maybe I’ll be on the street… and then maybe I’ll die.”
Even if you don’t consciously have these thoughts, these thoughts are running around when you’re activating the insanity that is the thinking in your mind for the most part.
Probably 95% of your thoughts are completely, either irrelevant, or completely off center for most of us.
The truth is that when we’re allowing ourselves to embrace the sense of the silence, the depth of who you are within the silence, we’re able to actually become clear.
We’re actually able to get out of the muck and be able to see a clear path to let things just happen easily.
If you’ve ever been stuck in the mud in a car and tried to “gun it out,” and found that the more you gunned it, the harder it was to get out, you’ll know what I’m talking about.
If you’ve ever tried to pick something up or tried to find something frantically, and have it be harder, you’ll know what I’m talking about.
You know that every single time you buy in and allow this fuel, the stories that are being promoted within your own consciousness, to be given attention – your attention – you giving your attention to them, and allowing yourself to deepen into that, you become more and more lost.
The solution… silence.
The Mind Doth Protest
The protest of the mind is that it sounds boring.
It sounds like I’ll go crazy if I have to go into silence and it’s actually just the opposite.
Your only pathway to deep freedom and deep sanity is within the silence.
Everything else is just a passing cloud – temporary.
The use of bliss. The use of I’m not happy. All those sorts of things come from the mental mind and are temporary.
It’s time to anchor yourself deeply into silence.
It’s amazing, not even because you’re looking for it, it’s amazing the clarity that can come through you when you simply allow yourself to become deeply still.
So bring this into your practice throughout your day, not just in meditation, but also throughout the day to feel continuously the field.
The field, which is the silence in the silence. Allow yourself to experience the deep surrender to allowing the wholeness of who you are to simply be.
