Stay in your body. The silence is in your body. It’s not out there. It’s in your body. Your body becomes silent. That’s what happens. But there’s so much past stored in people’s bodies. That’s what resistance is. You don’t want to feel that past in your body, and that’s why most people spend most of their time in their heads, trying to be somewhere else. But in my experience, the only way to be completely free of that past is to sit and feel it as a sensation in your body.
Stay in your body, and you’ll be surprised what happens. To really become immersed in the silence, you need to free your body – purify your body of the past. Only then will there be silence. Then the questions go, the doubts go. You become that silence.
There’s only silence when you’re free of the past, free of your fear. Only then is there silence. And that silence is overwhelming, it’s indescribably beautiful. You don’t come in and out of it – it’s always there. It’s all one. There’s no two. It’s all one.
