In the silence, I find myself. The part of myself that is whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy. If you have not given it thought, we are created in two parts, the flesh & the spirit, the world without & the world within. All chaos is found in the world without. Looking to material things to fill that empty void that is caused by running away from your other half will never fit the bill. You will always be empty, never filled until you come to the realization that only through listening to the still, small voice will you find the satisfaction which you seek. The answers ARE truly all there, in your better half, but you must silence that world without in order to gain the power to hear.
I often hear my children playing with one of their favorite apps, Magic Piano. My daughter loves to play a favorite Disney song, Once Upon A Dream. Some of the words are so telling:
I know you
I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you
The gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
Yet I know it’s true
That visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you
I know what you’ll do
You’ll love me at once
The way you did once
Upon a dream
Who is this lover, waiting to take you in their arms, this perfect vision of love? It is you. Your other half, waiting to rescue you. YOU are your own Prince or Princess Charming. Your PC is longing for you to embrace them; at long last you will be one. At long last you will be home. That place is there for you at all times. Won’t you take the time to meet your love, your partner forever? Married or not, this is the true love you have been looking for. The one who will never leave you, never cheat, always by your side.
He who desires wisdom, power, or permanent success of any kind will find it only within; it is an unfoldment. The unthinking may conclude that the silence is very simple and easily attained, but it should be remembered that only in absolute silence may one come into contact with Divinity itself; may learn of the unchangeable law and open for himself the channels by which persistent practice and concentration lead to perfection.
