“The light that you so crave will come out of the deep silence and become manifest to you from within yourself, if you will but keep still and look for it from that source.”
Lessons in Truth, H. Emilie Cady, P114
Do you find that the last thing your mind wants to be is silent? Certainly I find that when I seek to meditate and get still, my mind can chat even louder! Regular meditators will tell you how easily our minds are distracted.
Yet when we practice stilling our minds, like the skill that mindfulness teaches, with a simple focusing tool like our breath, a mantra or a lit candle, our minds learn to get quiet and we touch the deep silence out of which we can truly come to know our true Self.
It is a practice that opens us to our limitless potential, as expressions of God, of the Divine. And when we practice this with other people, who are choosing to be silent together, the experience grows in magnitude and feels even more profound.
This is what we experience so often when we come together in prayer in our online prayer times. And what we experience when we come together at our retreats and is the focus of our forthcoming Unity Silent Retreat. These moments are potentially very powerful experiences that enable us to touch the Presence within us as our source and expand us into the Self we came here to be.
So join us in the silence, tap into the wisdom that lies within you, the love that frees you and the peace that will always sustain you.
