I named this blog “Silent Wisdom” in honour of the silent, unfathomable, inexplicable knowing that resides in the Heart of us all as our mutual essence. Through personal sharing and stories I explore multiple facets of the diamond that is “Heart-centred Awareness”.
Along the way my intention is to elaborate on the principles of living a conscious life that I wrote about in Break Out of Your Mind and have developed further in the Conscious Intelligence meditation.
I explore the practical applications of the power of awareness to our individual lives, our relationships, our work and to our creative endeavours. Also, from time to time, I explore the ecological impact of our awakening consciousness.
Most people basically want six things:
- more time
- more money
- more freedom
- more health
- more love
- and more happiness
These are facets of an abundant life and Heart-centred Awareness is, itself, the very essence of true abundance.
An important part of my intention in writing this Silent Wisdom blog is to help dismantle the conceptual borders between unconditional Love, which in my experience is another name for pure Consciousness – our mutual one Self – and the practical expression of that love in our human lives, work, creativity and relationships.
From pure Consciousness emerges love for individual people, animals, the natural world and the products of human creativity. This Consciousness is our best friend – a friend who will never desert or betray us.
In my experience, the feeling that emerges upon awakening to who we are as our timeless essence is like a perpetual feeling of being in love.
We could call this feeling awareness by many names including: joy, happiness, peace, freedom. It’s a feeling of being complete and fulfilled in and of ourselves, independently from any external cause. Buddha called it Nirvana, which simply means blissful peace.
This Silent Wisdom blog represents my best effort to contribute to the birthing of pure Consciousness in our human lives and the world as a whole. My hope is that it can help to draw aside the veils of illusory separation and thus allow the incarnation of friendship between all humanity irrespective of gender, race, religion or political persuasion.
