The Nature of a Silent Mind


pulsatilla-764661_960_720.jpgCultivating a silent mind is the goal of every true seeker; that the mind should become quiet. There should be no conflict in the mind. The mind should be listening to the Universe, observing every level of communication with the Universe, being open and receptive to every form of guidance.

A mind that is humble to its Source; a mind that is not seeking to impose itself with its own ideas and visions, but a mind that is very open and receptive to every possibility that can appear in the inner space; a mind that tries not to dominate the space; a mind that is vigilant, observant, with a lot of curiosity, but with a lot of openness. That is a mind that is alive, awake and naturally silent.

How can we learn to cultivate that silent mind that is so awake, so much in the present, so open, so receptive, so humble? We need to manage the thoughts. We need to break free from the belief systems so that we may come into that silent space. And that is the space where we can really grow in the Consciousness. How do we get there? That is the goal when we sit to meditate. That is the very goal: get into a silent space in the mind.

When you give power to thoughts they grow. So giving no power to them and giving power only to the clearness of the space, the silence behind everything, the peacefulness in that space from where everything arises.
