Keeping Quiet as the Ultimate Spiritual Non-Practice
Kabîr says, “Listen to me, dear Sadhu! the true path is rarely found.” – Kabir
I find silence to be the highest spiritual teaching there is for any seeker of truth.
Not forced silence, not silence of the mouth, not silence by means of repression… But silence as an effortlessness understanding. The silence that is inherent in your nature, only if you would allow the muddy chaotic waters of your psyche to calm down.
This silence is the perfume of the Supreme Being, God, Brahman, Dao, Buddha, Allah, or what have you…
When this silence is perfected unto itself, one is totally inseparable from the will and nature of the Supreme.
Silence Opens the Gateless Gate
Contemplate upon that, what would happen if your ego and personhood would leave the body? What would remain? Indeed in this silent sanctuary only the holy spirit would be alive and functioning.
Or as Mooji said: When the person moves out, the universe moves in.
In it he expresses how keeping quiet is the key to spiritual and existential liberation, have a look:
Why Silence So Powerful
Silence is the highest because when the waters become clear, your dharmic eye and vision is immaculate. You see things as they are, and any deviations of the psychological mind is instantly recognized and disregarded. They are seen and dissolved.
Silence allows your natural clear spiritual vision to work its magic… Not by force, not by effort, but by pure wisdom.
This is the gift that silence brings.
It brings closes the bridge of separation between you and yourself.
Honor it, and you will know of what I’m and all the other mystics, sages, masters of this world have experienced.
An experience that is perpetual.
You’ve arrived home.
“Do not go to the garden of flowers! O Friend! go not there; In your body is the garden of flowers. Take your seat on the thousand petals of the lotus, and there gaze on the Infinite Beauty.” – Kabir
