Silence is something that comes from your heart, not from outside. Silence doesn’t mean not talking and not doing things; it means that you are not disturbed inside. If you’re truly silent, then no matter what situation you find yourself in you can enjoy the silence.
Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding. The highest form of knowledge is empathy, for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another’s world. It requires profound purpose larger than the self kind of understanding.
Talking of the “witness” should not lead to the idea that
there is a witness and something else
apart from him that he is witnessing.
The “witness” really means
the light that illumines the seer, the seen and the process of seeing.
Before, during and after the triads of seer, seen and seeing,
the illumination exists.
It alone exists always.
Inquiring into one’s nature and abiding in the self
is truly realizing His presence.
A person who is away from his real Self
owing to the association of himself with the body-mind complex
is in truth an atheist.
