This silence is soothing.
This silence has no memory.
It goes nowhere
It has no plan to fulfill.
It is ever new
It whispers softly
Take my hand
I am this sweet shadow
This timid light
Let me embrace you
In my morning bosom
I am You
THE WHISPERING YOU

So how can silence/emptiness/nothing be of benefit? For me it gave me the chance to hear my inner voices more clearly. I would patiently listen to the negative voice within trying to make me feel bad, stupid, guilty for something I had done. Then I chose not to listen to it. If I wasn’t silent enough to really hear and be aware of the inner critic trying to undermine me, I could not have responded to with a more loving, constructive voice. It was just there fueled by others, fear and ignorance. And now it only whispers unconvincingly. The first step in fixing the ‘problem’ was being aware of it. I needed to hear it.
So there in the silence and stillness I found my answers, once I stopped looking so hard. The Masters continue to bring me silence.
All problems originate from inner imbalance, simply put, problems are energetic disturbances on a very subtle level – a distempered kind of frequencies.
Most people run away from themselves, being totally out of touch with their inner essence, chasing bitterly to fulfill their sense of inner incompleteness outwardly. In plain language, not only that they are not aware of their inner person, but they refuse vehemently to stop and listen to themselves. They don´t know, and don´t want to know what is happening within them inwardly. “If I hide from it, it will surely fade…” – incredibly “astute” philosophy of life…
Not only they don´t fade, but not being witnessed and factually acknowledged, these inner ruthlessly chaotic frequencies become in due time autonomous processes, increasingly taking control of people´s life, totally undermining their mental sanity and health…
So basically the disease of our so-called modern age is the inability and disinterest to look inside, heed and witness the inner chaos.
So there comes the whole significance of Silence. To dare to be silent is the readiness to accept your inner person.
Only in silence one can be aware, distinguish, directly confront and stop the proliferating negativity. It is a hell of a toilsome process…- ask me!…
Only our readiness to be silent is the antidote to these undermining negative voices – as you call them -
voices fueled both by our and others´ fear and ignorance.
So it is: we need to diagnose and acknowledge our inner ailment if we want to recover…If we fail to recognize the problem, stubbornly fleeing and ignoring it, be certain that in due time, the inner disorder will become actual physical disease.
Only when we start being aware, the problems will “whisper unconvincingly”.
