This is the reason why it is so important to take moments to stop and breath and by this i mean really letting go into the breath. This requires a certain letting things be. There is a natural rhythm in the cycle of our breathing which can easily convey us into a the place of silence.
Expand into the present moment which is un-contrived and effortless. This simple non-movement takes us instantly to the edge of infinity, the expanse of the true self.
We get so caught up in the little dramas going on in our lives and in our minds. When we stop for a moment and look up into the sky, be it day or night and let it touch us in that secret, silent place beyond thoughts and words, something happens...
In the flash of an eye our perspective can shift from petty self-involved preoccupations to the infinite mystery of the universe in which we live, move and have our being.
There is nothing fabricated in this shift of perspective, it requires nothing but an openness of heart and mind to reconnect with the profound mystery of our existence.
In doing this, we reconnect with the sacred, and the sacred is free, always available and unbelievably near.
Yes, we are that minuscule dot in the vast expanse of the universe but we are also that universe, the one reflects the other in a way that is utterly unimaginable and perfect.
The greatest adventure of discovery that one can ever embark upon is the inner adventure, the one that dives deeply into the 'self;' into the mystery of our existence and of who and what we really are.
This simple message is being repeated again and again, like the beating of a drum. There are endless ways of saying this but the meaning is always the same. The intention is only that one day we will awaken to the call, hear the sound and dive deeply into the true self.
This is the one panacea to all troubles and the single most important thing we can 'know' in this world. Period.
