The principle of the "witness" (or observer) who is aware of the entire realm of human experience, is well-known in spiritual circles and the worlds of meditation and mindfulness. At first, for many people the witness takes the form of a mental concept, which, although not the whole truth, is a step up in consciousness … Continue reading Ego: The False Witness
Self-inquiry differs from all other meditations that I'm aware of because all the others require us to dedicate a period of time to their practice, need a quiet place, entail closing our eyes, and demand the removal of external distractions to be fully effective – or even able to be performed at all. Self-inquiry however, … Continue reading Self-Inquiry: The Anytime Meditation
It seems to me that it's only the illusory "doer", or ego, that suffers. So when the notion of being the doer dissipates, through Self-inquiry, there is no-one left to suffer, which I believe is what Buddha pointed us to – the bliss of nirvana. The principle that it is only the imaginary doer who … Continue reading Self-inquiry Made Simple – Part 3
The seed idea for this article came a few days ago when I was driving to Dartmoor, a place where I would very much love to live. So love and the power of manifestation was very much present when this insight arrived. If you've listened to my self-discovery meditations, and read other Silent Wisdom posts, … Continue reading “Me too” Enlightenment – A New Paradigm of Spirituality?
Sittting on the summit of Arunachala back in 2005 it came to me that I, as Conscious Being, had not moved even so much as a fraction of a millimetre. Only my body had travelled thousands of miles from England to sit on India's holy mountain. And it came to me that the awakening I … Continue reading The Unmoving Nature of Being
In the Assume the Change meditation, my guiding words assume that the essence of who and what we share as our mutual I AM Consciousness – i.e. unconditional love – can manifest as the person you would love to be, who lives the life you would love to live. Ok, you say, I'm cool with … Continue reading The Power of Love
There are a number of principles, and a fundamental paradigm shift, that set the Assume the Change meditation apart from other manifestation processes. As far as I know it is unique. So, because the process is so different, I've written this Silent Wisdom post to give you a context for listening to the guided Assume … Continue reading Create Your Life from Love
Self-inquiry first guides us to know who and what we truly are as pure I AM Consciousness, the silence of our mutual One Heart. When we devote ourselves to living from this Consciousness our lives unfold spontaneously, easefully and effortlessly in ways that are in the best interests of everyone and all life. The truth … Continue reading Self-Inquiry Made Simple – Part 2
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 … Continue reading What is the “Silent Wisdom” blog?
The existence of ego is a myth. In reality there is no actual entity called an "ego" (a noun), there is only the mental activity, the process, of egoity (a verb). Ego is nothing more than an imagined identity, simply a collection of thoughts many people believe to be who and what they are. Egoity … Continue reading Ego: The Waking Dream of Separation
The core of Self-inquiry, the most fundamental principle, is that of asking ourselves, "What is the truth?" The second question of inquiry is "What is the truth of who and what I AM?" Self-inquiry is a phenomenally powerful practice, and yet is so simple it tends to pass most people by. We humans seem to … Continue reading Self-Inquiry Made Simple – Part 4
