Memes, Music, and Radio: "I have the impression that many of us are afraid of silence. We're always taking in something-text, music, radio, television, or thoughts-to occupy the space. If quiet and space are so important for our happiness, why don't we make more room for them in our lives?" Thich Nhat Hahn Via @conscious_collective ๐Ÿ˜Š That silent space is our very being, our own consciousness, the ground of our existence. When we can be in this space without trying to escape it, or fill it with our past knowledge, we come to understand our true Self as this ever present awareness that lies beyond the mind. Realizing this, we also understand that this awareness lies at the root of all existence, not just our own. And from this understanding of our shared existence, compassion is born. We see our Self in others, and we respect and care for our Self in them. How can there be violence, hatred, greed, manipulation, etc. when we realize that all beings are one? Do not run away from (y)our true Self, from that silent space, that unknown silence in which all of our thoughts, memories, words, beliefs, plans, hopes, fears, etc. lose their solidity, and all that remains is this awareness, this Beingness, which is always right here and now. This awareness is not dull or lifeless. It is blissful, intelligent, and alert-and when you can relax your mind and trust in your Self, allowing your Self to behave naturally without fear of judgment, you can allow this awareness to move naturally with your direct experience and swim with the flowing river of the ever changing present moment. Unattached, unaffected, yet adaptable, present and aware. Pure Consciousness, the Source of our Being, is a living field of infinite potential. This potential lies dormant within you, and you can tap into it and let it stream unobstructed, as long as you are willing to allow it, surrender your ego to it, and trust it, as you are it, and by trying to resist it and run away from it, you are only fighting against yourself. - conscious_collective โ€ข OneLove
