The Roaring Silence

This Christmas, I have one wish for you: I wish you love-consciousness. Love-consciousness is the unconditional love that lies within us, the inner space of fulfillment where true freedom lies.

To sit permanently in love-consciousness is to sit in the silence. I call it the ‘roaring silence’ because sometimes it’s so silent, it’s loud. When you are sitting in love-consciousness, even in the midst of great noise, the silence will be the only thing you can hear.

Love-consciousness overshadows the intellect. It overshadows noise. It overshadows everything. It’s within that space that we begin to witness. Within that peace, the frequency of love is found.

There is nothing greater than love-consciousness. It is the only thing that has any true value, because it’s the only thing that’s real. I can have fame, I can have money, I can be beautiful, but without love-consciousness, I will remain an empty vessel; I still won’t be complete because my heart will be yearning for something more. Without love of self, attributes like beauty and fame and illusory riches are worthless. With the love of self, we can play within the illusion of duality like a child, embracing every aspect.

If our freedom is based in our surroundings, it is tangible but inconstant. It is always changing, and there is always the fear of loss. If our security is in love-consciousness, it is never-changing. It is ever present and infinitely expanding. There can never be loss; there can never be death. There will only be a new stage, with a multitude of different characters playing their parts for our amusement.

There is nothing real but the love. The illusions that we cling to with such ferocity are like clouds that dissolve in the sunshine.

Love This? Never Miss Another Story.

Yep, they said they loved me. That meant I should allow them to hurt me. They were only doing it for my own good.

These have been my relationships since I was a child.
I was even thrashed while being told it was because they loved me. I was forced to dress in a manner inviting mockery. Because they loved me!

My response is this. "Love like that, I don't need!!"

I enjoy listening to the music of the spheres.

Beethoven and other classical musicians often transcribed the music of the spheres.

The sound current is real and it can heal.

Thank you very much for these wonderful words.

Since childood i have a problem to ignore poor people sitting somewhere and hoping about getting some coins. I do not have enough for myself (a student), and although i know that many of these people have a problem with alcohol, would spend all money for drinking it, it hurts somehow. It makes me sad seeing all this misery. When i was in school i had been a member of "NABU" (it is similar with "Greenpeace") with giving something each month, but i did not had enough, had to leave it. And i felt sad and worthless. I felt bad, as if i had done something wrong
