The Power Of Stillness


The power that stillness offers us is the opportunity
to clearly perceive the nature of flow in all things. From this we can
develop the ability to follow the path of flow into dimensions of
knowledge, spirituality, empowerment and enlightenment. All things have
their own flow or frequency, matching it is like creating a key that
fits a door. We can choose to open this door and explore, we can choose
to leave the door just as it is or we can choose to make peace with all
the door represents. Each choice offers an opportunity for mastery of
the self because each choice involves learning to move the mind.

experience of stillness is like bringing quiet to a swirling lake so
that we may see the bottom. In truth the bottom is always there,
stillness simply allows us to see. When we have tuned ourselves to
hearing and seeing this flow then we will find that quieting the mind
and body is no longer necessary. We will gain the ability to perceive
flow and stillness in all things, noisy, quiet, chaotic or orderly.
Even the experience of stillness which is often perceived as eternal
has within it a depth that when moved through is realized as flow. The
question then arises whether this is true stillness? As with all things
the speaking of it will never compare to the experience of feeling it.
The perception of stillness is enough at any given moment, just as the
perception of truth at this moment is enough when seeking absolute
truth. Sustaining the direction through practice will in the fullness
of time transcend all the layers. It is similar to a dripping tap
filling a swimming pool with water, given enough time the tap will fill
the pool.

Stillness can be practiced by implementing the physical
path. By remaining absolutely still, moving no muscles other than our
lungs to breath, our heart to beat and our other autonomous organs we
observe a static state. The easiest way to do this is lying down or
sitting in a comfortable position. In stillness we will then observe
our mind and bodys desire to move, and yet when we do not move, when
we remain still we will notice the flow of energy that is asking us to
move. We simply observe this energys flow and it leads us to other
flows. In time we may be conscious of many, many flows and yet beneath
them all there is a deeper stream of flow. Learning to follow these
pathways to deeper levels we find subtler and subtler feelings of
stillness. The stillness may again open us to the awareness of flows
which in turn lead us to gateways of stillness.

Through each
portal we will find that we are delving deeper into ourselves. We can
also notice that between the stillness and flow is another space. This
space is the canvas upon which we can realize clairsentience.
Similarly, observing stillness we may begin to perceive movement, this
movement may become visual at areas and is the space where we can
experience clairvoyance. Each of the skills of true perception can be
found through following the paths of power, but even at these levels of
experience still deeper areas can be sought, explored and found. In
time a doorway that unites all the senses, stillness and flow can be
found. Through it we experience ourselves as we remember ourselves as
we truly are and who we have been is changed through this reunion. One
of the true beauties of this however is that although we are changed we
can still perceive the consciousness that was unaware. This is the
reality of the infinite mind, it can experience the contradiction of
knowing and not knowing, truth and ignorance all at the same time.
Learning to experience peace as it exists within all internal
struggles, dissent and contradictions is what heals and reconciles all
aspects of the self.

Gaining a foothold to understanding
stillness is all that is required to integrate this essence into all
practices and life. Remaining still physically gives us the most
obvious representation of stillness. The principle remains the same as
we travel deeper. Bringing this essence into the practice of focus
allows us to find a far deeper, more sustaining focus. Bringing this
essence into the practice of observation allows us to find a more
expansive, fluid awareness. The psychic senses become clearer and
connection with the higher self becomes tangible. The relationship
between stillness and true empowerment are intrinsically linked. Each
provides a direction for the mind to move and it is through this
movement that the consciousness gains the opportunity to see the
reality of itself – that its truest power and purpose exists in the
realization of it.
