What if you had a vehicle equipped with state of the art navigational equipment but you never used it because you weren’t sure how it works? In life, we have an inner guidance system but many of us don’t know how to turn it on and make it work for us. What if you have a way—right now—to connect with the deeper wisdom and navigational tools already within you? What if I told you that within you is all the most insightful, life-changing knowledge, direction, and advice that can ever, or will ever, be written or known? It’s true! Everything there is to be understood is already available within each of us, if we just learn to access the infinite well of wisdom from within. Ancient tribes, shamans, gurus and healers have long understood how to connect with this cosmic web of information—and you can do it too.
Where is our center? Our center is not so much in a particular location inside our physical body, it is a part of our true state of being. A part that is fundamental for us as conscious lifeforms. This core of consciousness is the very ground of our being. It is the not a part, but the whole of us, which transcends the material mind of illusion (confusion) and retains connection to the all-encompassing sacred wisdom, even when we cannot hear it.
If you were to, right now, be launched out into space, to view the great earth as a tiny sphere upon which everyone we have ever known and loved continues to, perhaps, blindly, live out their lives you would have a drastic perspective shift. From this view you may observe many lives, each filled with ideas about purpose, belief systems carved from personal life experiences, and with all certainty each clearly attempting to fill a kind of existential void. If you were to go deeper into the vast abyss of interstellar space you may find in this environment of weightlessness and lack of sensory input, you are not your body, you are not your arms or legs, you are not your mind or even the thoughts you are thinking. You are simply an observer: node of consciousness through which the universe experiences itself. It is from this awareness of the transcendent aspect of our being (which is a divinely conscious witness) that we can begin to connect with our deepest wisdom.
Visualize a gaseous nebula in deep space. Look at what it is doing. It is not “doing” anything. It is existing, just being, and through that it is truly alive, it is birthing stars using the remnants of the collapse of stellar life many millions of eons old, transforming these ancient solar artifacts into the elements of new life, new Light. We are exactly the same.
Center. What I mean by “center”, is allow yourself to align. Allow your body to come into correct alignment. Allow your thoughts to still themselves. Allow your energy to come into balance and peace. Breathe into this alignment and breathe out any attachments or judgments that are preventing balance. Any negativity, guilt, fear, and discomfort. Allow your heart to open into a feeling of love, contentment, and acceptance for this moment and all that is present in the silence from within you.
Nature is a perfect place to surround yourself with elements necessary to tap in to the silence. Nature is already tapped in. Every tree, plant, rock, stream, bird, and spider lives its life tapped in. It is us who have disconnected. Find a spot near water, or in a quiet field or forest. All you have to do from there is be still and listen. Don’t give up if it doesn’t come right away. You will need to practice and give this time. We cannot force this, we cannot make answers come. We can simply offer up our question and allow the intelligence of the universe/ the higher wisdom to respond in its own way. It will come as a voice from within, it will not sound like the neurotic narrative many of us are accustomed to: this is a voice that displays deep intelligence, and profound direction.
From a space of silence, just as if you had cleared out the clutter in a magnetic void, you create a vacuum for the universe to rush in and fill. What comes in is the deep wisdom, the higher awareness that goes beyond the singular self, and the insight that can, not only, create a greater understanding of life, but provide navigational guidance through it. You can access this at any point in time, from any place on earth.
Surrender yourself with faith that there is meaning and purpose beyond our day to day lives, there is truth beyond our three-dimensional, polar reality, there is something greater than our linear mind can comprehend, but as we go into silence, and stillness we can access this higher awareness: the wisdom within. You do not need to sit in some specific pose, or chant just the right mantra to attain this connection. You simply need to release all that is not you and let your inner guidance do what it is meant to do--guide you.~
