“In stillness lies the sound which is the creative existence of God. Whoever masters the stillness and the science, and can understand it, receives all knowledge.”- Yogi Bhajan
In our hectic world stillness is becoming increasingly difficult, however, if we do not become still through the practice of meditation it is impossible to hear God. Stillness through meditation brings us to into our unconscious thoughts. Our thought processes, memories, interests, and motivations live within our unconscious minds. For this reason, it is important to meditate and have a spiritual practice. There are specific exercises in Kundalini yoga that clear the unconscious mind. Having the knowledge that your daily behaviors are primarily based on your thoughts living within your subconscious is a powerful realization. This awareness can bring healing to your life and your relationships.
“The unconscious mind comprises mental processes that are inaccessible to consciousness but that influence judgements, feelings, or behavior. According to Freud, the unconscious mind is the primary source of human behavior. Like an iceberg, the most important part of the mind is the part you cannot see.” - Saul McLeod - Psychology Today
“The Master of Kundalini Yoga, Yogi Bhajan, often talked about a most elevated state of consciousness called Shuniya, where the ego is brought to complete stillness. A power exists there. We do not hassle or try to act. With folded hands of devotion, Infinity acts for us. In that state of “zero,” if we can focus our mental projection on a clear intention, which acknowledges our higher self and the Creator within us, it will be so.” - Dr. Jivan Joti Kaur
Yogi Bhajan said, “There is no miracle. The mind is infinite when it concentrates the magnetic energy of the psyche. There are only two things: energy and matter. Any composition, permutation of any energy into matter and matter into energy, can be caused by a disciplined mental concentration. That mental concentration is in you, it is not outside.”
My prayer for you today is that you would find stillness and silence in this hectic world. Tap into your unconscious mind and let go of limiting beliefs that you have built into your brain for years. Find the peace that only God can provide.
