Our great hope dwells within whatever supports, strengthens, or sustains our love of truth, where much as candle light banishes any shadow before it -- revealing its nothingness -- so a living faith reveals that hiding just within any dark moment is a light that it knows not.
Faith is a bridge between levels of self; it is an invisible, but real connection between who we have been, and the invitation to realize all that we are created to be.
Our level of understanding is no better or worse to us than is our ability to attend to what we know is Right, True, and Good.
It certainly seems true, and (it) definitely feels that way, but the familiarity of our habitual thinking is not safety any more than one might believe some ill-fated creature locked in -- and confined to a cage -- finds comfort in its captivity.
Silence is how creation pays homage to the timeless Stillness that gave it birth.
All things begin, meet, converge, and are born again in the unseen light of awareness; each and all perfectly bound together -- eternally related to one another -- in an infinite field of unconditioned intelligence.
Much in the same way as a reflection on the surface of the water does not disturb the waters upon which it appears, so must we develop the same relationship with our own reactions.
Here’s one of the reasons the mind won’t stop it’s incessant chattering: we’ve become so identified with being in the company of all the (familiar) voices in our head, we actually fear their silence means that, somehow, we’ve been left alone, or forsaken.
Talking to ourselves ensures we remain the unwitting captive of a lower level of consciousness that never stops judging us, others, or the world through which we walk!
All forms of self-talk are an unconscious, yet “deliberate” intervention in our intended participation in the revelation and fulfillment of creation.
Allowing any part of self to act in such a way as to deny yourself a new awareness of yourself -- whatever its quality -- is the same as refusing your right to realize the limitless depth and breadth of your true Self.
Resistance to any form of painful desire is how (that) desire ensures its “fire” never goes out. To see the truth of this revelation is the first step required of anyone who seeks to be released from their unconscious relationship with this self-induced form of suffering.
