A REALLY GOOD ARTICLE BY A FRANCISCAN FRAIR

“For me, the two correctives of all spirituality are silence and service. If either of those is missing, it is not true, healthy spirituality. Without silence, we do not really experience our experiences. We may serve others and have many experiences, but without silence, nothing has the power to change us, to awaken us, to give us that joy that the world cannot give, as Jesus says. And without clear acts of free service (needing no payback of any sort, even “heaven”), a person’s spiritual authenticity can and should be called into question. Divine Love always needs to and must overflow!

To live in this primordial, foundational being itself, which I am calling silence, creates a kind of sympathetic resonance with what is right in front of us. Without it, we just react instead of respond. Without some degree of silence, we are never living, never tasting, as there is not much capacity to enjoy, appreciate, or taste the moment as it purely is. The opposite of contemplation is not action, it is reaction. We must wait for pure action, which always proceeds from a contemplative silence in which we are able to listen anew to truth and to what is really happening. Such spiritual silence demands a deep presence to oneself in the moment, which will probably have the same practical effect as presence to God.

You do not hear silence (precisely!), but it is that by which you do hear. You cannot capture silence. It captures you. Silence is a kind of thinking that is not thinking. It’s a kind of thinking which mostly sees(contemplata). Silence, then, is an alternative consciousness. It is a form of intelligence, a form of knowing beyond bodily reacting or emotion. It is a form of knowing beyond mental analysis, which is what we usually call thinking. All of the great world religions at the higher levels(mystical) discovered that our tyrannical mode of everyday thinking (which is largely compulsive, brain-driven, and based on early patterning and conditioning) has to be relativized and limited, or it takes over, to the loss of our primal being and identity in ourselves. I used to think that mysticism was the eventual fruit of years of contemplation; now I think it all begins with one clear moment of mystic consciousness, which then becomes the constant “spring inside us, welling up unto eternal life.”

About the Author: Richard Rohr is a Franciscan friar, an internationally known speaker and author, and founding director of the Center for Action and Contemplation. The above passage is from his book, Silent Compassion: Finding God in Contemplation.”

HOW A FAMOUR BUSINESSMAN USED MEDITATION TO SUCCEED

I was having one of those days — maybe you’re familiar with them? — when I felt like a passenger on a fast, jerky subway train, holding the handrail tight just to stay standing, each turn throwing me off balance.

I gave a presentation that received a standing ovation and left the stage on top of the world. Then I read an angry email from someone and became angry myself. Following that, I did a fun on-radio interview and I was energized. A little later, I received feedback that I talked too much in a meeting and I was embarrassed and disappointed in myself… Download Article or read more Peter Bregman Stuff

WRITE A NOTE TO YOUR SOUL – AND HAVE BREAK THROUGH!

Write a big sign and note to your Soul 

‘Am I taking the right actions to achieve my financial goals? Show me  clearly, very clearly what I should do each day, every day, to achieve my money goals.’

Keep repeating the question, never ever trying to find the answers yourself. It’s an answer from your Soul you’re seeking. These answers arise in unexpected moments of being relaxed and at ease. After a time, it could be a day, a fortnight or 6 weeks, an intuitive flash will give you the answer. Yay!
