Silence Expands Your Consciousness

At my Joy of Health seminar on Sunday, one of my students was prompted to read a passage from my 2nd book, Bridges of Consciousness. Upon request, I've copied the passage here:

Go beyond the chatter of the ego and look for the lesson. Looking within is not an exercise to destroy the ego. It is an exercise of providing balance in life. The ego is only a small part of the life of man on Earth. When the ego takes over control of man's life, dramas are created to defend the take-over.

Search for moments in your life when you can be with silence. Silence has an expansiveness and openness that is innate within itself. Silence does not fence you in as sound fences you in. When you can become comfortable with silence you will find the higher self that is you, reaching further and further into the spiritual world. You will begin a silence communication of energy which you will be able to identify by the peaceful feelings that will wash over you. At this moment the ego may create fear. Do not respond.

This silence does not remove your consciousness, it expands your consciousness. You will be aware of your physical world, but you will be developing an awareness of things within that physical world that you did not see before. You will feel a freedom, a wideness to your world. In time your thoughts will begin to come from a higher level, and you will suddenly be astounded by how profound you can be.

As you allow yourself to travel further and further into the stillness, the silence of life, you will begin to develop an awareness of light within this expansiveness. The light will increase into an understanding, a knowledge of self and your intimate relationship to the Universe. This will be the beginning of your transformation from a physical being into a balanced being. You will give nothing up. You will be adding to.

The entire world of man has been focused upon the physical self from the beginning of time. In your world today this fascination with the physical body controls much of your economy; even your medical and food industries. Man will become aware of the soul and spirit of self more rapidly, when he makes the choice to focus on the soul and spirit.    (Bridges of Consciousness, p. 92)

Living our Love as the Joy of Health will be our Truth of Life

Life is our Joy! Health is our Joy! Whenever I think about the human species and the multiple levels of human energy that is prevalent in our reality as a human society, I wonder how long it is going to take us ("mankind" and "womankind") to awaken to living the Ethical Values as our Joy of Life. The Ethical Values dictate to us as human beings that we must live truth if we want to live our Spiritual Design. Whenever we live any energy that is not coming from the Ethical Values, we cast negative energy into the energy reality of Earth, which causes multiple fluctuations in the way that Earth itself functions.

Man has changed the energy level of Earth, because man is totally self-centered and usually functions from the concept that "What man wants, man gets." We can always see this attitude living in the hearts of some people. When we very consciously live the Ethical Values, we make Earth better, more stable, and we also stabilize the energies that surround Earth, and the energies that live on Earth.

The Joy of Health teaches us to live a happy, truthful, healthy, and productive life. When we study the concepts of living Joy, which helps us to create the health of our body, mind, and Spirit, we prepare ourselves to live our love as the energy of our human life. As a Spiritual Being, we are committed to living love, truth, and equality.

The Joy of Health helps us to rise above our negative behaviors that we are inflicting upon ourselves in our ignorance. Our internal Joy helps us to understand how lying represents a soul that is struggling to learn to recognize itself. To be Spiritual, we must be truthful. Living our love as the joy of health will be our truth of life.

Join me at my next Joy of Health seminar next Sunday, October 24th at the Pittsboro Community House!  (65 Thompson Street in downtown Pittsboro)

Knowing Self as Energy

Love and Kindness
Come from a special place
In our loving heart
Of infinite energy.

Humans have a heart
Of wisdom and kindness,
A loving heart,
An eternal heart of energy

That allows our Spirit Energy
To Live love in every life,
In every word, every action
Every gesture that we make

And in every action of our life.
Good or bad or indifferent
We find the joy and the love
To live and to grow within.

The human challenge
Of good, evil, or indifferent
Is only temporary in our true growth.
Energy can never die.

A lesson to be learned.
To know the destiny
And the true beauty
Of all that lives and breathes, Energy.

The Energy of life comes
Only to live, change, and die,
And return again as another human energy
Another life of physical love.
