Dive into the silence in between your thoughts…

by jamesneed

This a great practice to transcend ‘thinking’ into awareness- so to enter the here and now, and to become one with this moment….

What is great about this practice is that it helps you to disidentify from your thoughts, and what I mean by this is; it helps you to disidentify your ‘sense of who you are’ out of thought and into awareness- the awareness that is at the heart and centre of everything in existence, the awareness that we all are and everything is…

Firstly get yourself comfy in a position that allows all of your body to be relaxed and effortless (I suggest laying flat on the floor with your arms by your sides so that all your body is in line, and so there is no holding on in any areas), now take a few deep breaths, and close your eyes…

Now relax for a few moments, become aware of all the sounds around you, and give yourself permission to relax and let go…

Now start to become aware of the little gaps of silence in between your thoughts…

Little gaps of ‘no-thought’ in between your thoughts…

You don’t need to try to ‘STOP’ thinking, you actually don’t need to do anything; just become deeply aware of the little gaps of silence and stillness in between your thoughts, and stay with it…

Thoughts will still arise, but just let them float by without giving them any of your energy; just let them arise and let them pass, without you having any attachment to them…

Keep bringing yourself back to those little gaps of silence in between your thoughts, thoughts will arise but just let them pass, and bring yourself back to the silence, practice dwelling there for as long as you can, and try to keep your attention rooted in the silence…

These gaps of silence will continue to lengthen and deepen the more you practice this, so just enjoy detaching yourself from your thoughts and rooting yourself in the awareness of this moment…

I am explaining here as a practice, and it would be a great practice to for 15 minutes twice a day. However there is no substitute for every day present moment awareness, and once you are fully in touch with who you really are, this will become a natural way of life…

So as you go about your day keep bringing yourself back to the present moment, keep going beyond thought and entering the silence, be here now…

Remember that you are only ever in the space that you are in, you are only ever here and now, in this moment…

Nothing outside of this moment exists…

Namaste 🙂
