3 BENEFITS OF SILENCE

Dearest Soul,
                    Please share these thoughts in the beautiful way you do, with someone else to lighten their life! It may not be in the form of an email; it could be in the form of “good wishes for their well-being and pure feelings towards that soul”…simply by thinking and directing these true, pure thoughts towards someone you care about, you can lighten their mind and increase their spiritual power so that they have enough energy to rise above their difficulties and challenges.
************************************************************************************************
“There is a part of you that is perfect and pure. It is untouched by the less than perfect characteristics you’ve acquired by living in a less than perfect world.
It is filled with divine qualities, so it is in a constant state of resourcefulness and well-being. Its total absence of conflict and negativity of any sort makes this part of you a Still-Point-a deep, enriching experience of Silence.


Make time to practice reaching this inner place of Silence. It will bring you untold benefit.


                                              BENEFITS OF SILENCE


FIRST, it allows you to manage your thoughts better. You will find, for example, that there is no need to think as much as you do, that simply sitting in Silence will emerge, effortlessly, much of all that you need.


SECOND, the experience of Silence releases you from the grip of your negative programming and conditioning You will more easily experience the truth of your inner peace and dignity. This further aids the min in remaining focused and capable.


THIRD, the power of Silence can be shared. As you increase your experience of Silence, your power can help those without power to continue in their efforts of self-development and the experience of peace. Your treasure of Silence plus the additional treasure of true, powerful thoughts will help others go beyond the limited into the unlimited and the divine. It feels so good to “go beyond” in this way, to leave behind thought and speech and become quiet for a little while. It’s so refreshing and nourishing; it’s habit-forming Love for spiritual introversion, solitude and silence complements our life in such a beautiful way.”


From: Companion of God-Dadi Janki- former Head of Brahma Kumaris

Detached and Oh, So Lovely!

May you be free from the limitations of your mind, free from the bondage of too many thoughts, and from negative thoughts. Free yourself from mental slavery! Yes, may you be a Bestower of Liberation and experience such joy, far beyond the temporary, limited senses. Truly the quality of your habits and your thoughts is the elevator that will take you up or down. Free yourself from the habit of seeing other’s faults or weaknesses. What you see, you tend to absorb. See goodness, see the spark within each human entity. Experience the lightness and brightness of you, the soul. After all, this body is oh, so temporary. To become attached to anything temporary will bring only temporary happiness, with a wake of sorrow following close behind.

Retreat into the timeless nature of you the soul, and your original, eternal home, far beyond this earth, for it is presently being swept clean in preparation for our NEW BEGINNINGS. This is truly the end of an Epic Cycle. Souls have become tired from playing our mortal games, sooo many costume changes, different parts, different roles, lifetime after lifetime! Find and enter your original Purity, your original Happiness, your original Peace.

Turn up the volume of the original Melody of Happiness that lies deep within so that no notes of sorrow can be heard. To do this, recognize your true nature as a soul, detached, distinct, and separate from this body of matter. Recognize your true self, always governed by Love and Light. Recognize this truth of yourself and begin to find it in others, too. Remember the original Kingdom of Happiness that reigned upon this earth. Find it inside first. Be of Faith that it is soon to come, once again.

In this way, become detached from this old world of sorrow and vice, of greed and anger, of violence and grief! This is all passing, dissolving, melting to make way for our original truth.

The original nature of the soul is that of a peaceful, loving observer, the one who experiences and co-creates beauty, joy, peace, and love.

The Soul, YOU, so Detached!!! And Oh so Lovely!!!

Women Speaking About Themselves and What Spirituality Means to Them

Six women gathered for their first Zoom Meeting together. Each was invited to join the group to read and discuss the spiritual contents of a book called “The Four Faces of Woman” by Caroline Ward. In our opening session we each shared our reasons for joining the group…it sounded something like this. Each one has the aim to become true to the self that is authentic, loving, beautiful, trusting, aware, and connected to the self, others and God.

Honesty was in the air and a deep sense to share.

And more importantly for some,

to listen from the heart.

We were connected by our joy to know all that is divine within the self and in the Supreme Being. One participant said that what “Spirituality” meant to her was: the awareness of God and our own Divine Nature that eventually sends Light Out into Everything! Another said for her spirituality meant to realize the deep significance of Silence in connecting with God…that Silence is the way to do it!!! Another said for her Spirituality is a way of life, as well as life-changing. And another said spirituality was the interconnectedness she felt with her Guardian Angel who was helping her to be kinder and more loving to people and animals.

What we each appreciated about ourselves that made 2021 more doable:

When the topic of what quality or virtue did you especially appreciate and use to navigate 2021 came up, the responses were profoundly relevant to the qualities needed by our world, its leaders, and its people as we go forward.

Appreciation of the Self is Important

One blessed soul commented on the tumultuousness of 2021 and that she relied on her quality of Flexibility in order to respond to the many changes in an accepting way while standing in her truth. Another beloved soul said that Peace and Silence in these trying times helped her to navigate. Another courageous soul said Love and Faith in God and Trust in Life helped her shift from “being a mess” into a Loving Being with Self-Respect. And yet another bright soul said: Forgiveness in Family Matters was what she appreciated about herself this year. She reflected I’m easy and don’t hold grudges…yet I’m still feeling challenged ~To Forget!!! And another beautiful soul shared that taking responsibility for her feelings was what got her through 2021 with more grace.

Our Goals for 2022, sounded like this:

Emerging optimism, harmony, and time for meditation so I can make the changes to be responsive to others and even my community in a positive way.

Being more present and patient with myself…dropping the struggle…appreciative of the little things…AND trusting myself to Be My SELF.

Going deeper into silence and Oneness. Keeping the Connection with the One Above.

More Silence and Nature Time to bring into the rest of Life.

Check Subtle Body Changes with a Self-Energy Scan

You are a Being of Light

Detect subtle changes in your body, by performing an energy scan regularly.  

Positively affect your health, balance your emotions,
prevent illness, and heal injuries by regularly
focusing your mental and spiritual energy inward.

Begin by lying in a comfortable position and taking three deep cleansing breaths. Imagine, if you will, a sunbeam entering the top of your head. Feel this light slowly scanning each part of your internal body. Allow it to scan every cell in your body and keep breathing. Every time you exhale, blow out negative energy you may feel. Notice any changes in your body. Sensations may vary from person to person. You may feel a shift in body temperature, see a color or flash of light, or hear a voice offering you guidance. If you feel a block in a certain area of your body, sit with that block and feel into it. Ask your body why that block is there and what you need to do to release it. Try not to judge or analyze the wisdom that comes to you. Often, we experience energy blocks in our body because our body is trying to tell us something. You may want to breathe into that area until you feel the block dissolving. When you have finished your scan, take one last deep breath and exhale any energetic residue that you are ready to release.  

The body doesn’t lie, and it has much wisdom to share with us. Any injuries or blocks that exist in our bodies are there so that we can learn from having them in our bodies. An existing injury can teach us to slow down or help us recognize that something is out of balance in our bodies. The more you scan your body, the better you will become at it. If you sense that something is not right in your body, you may want to visit a doctor and tell them about your experience. When you have finished your scan, don’t forget to thank your wonderful, amazing body and congratulate you, the soul, the master of your body, for paying attention!

With Love and Respect,
Shivalaya

AS WITHIN, SO WITHOUT

It is a cool Sunday morning here on Kauai and I am wishing you a fruitful and happy attitude towards whatever is in front of you in this moment.


Remember the power of Silence, step back into the self, to connect  with the One Above, the Comforter of Hearts, and then take actions, speak, or think. This transforms your every thought, word, and action from ordinary to elevated.


 May you resonate with the sweet reminder below, that mental tiredness is a symptom of the self going against its own truth…

Stop, reflect and remember that you are an eternal being, your true nature is of Light, Peace, and Love, and your Best Friend is the One who resides in a state of silence in our original, eternal Home, called Nirvana.  

It is our honor to return there shortly with Him, to rest in His Company before we re-enter the journey once again through the Eternal Cycle of Time.
We live in the age of ‘busy’. Busy people not only do a lot, they think a lot. The origins of ‘busy’ are mental.

Mental tiredness is a symptom of the self going against the grain of the truth about the self. Being lost in thought, thinking constantly about things to do, what’s been done, what could have been done, what was done wrong, what should have been done but wasn’t,
what others did, are doing, should do, must do, is tiring and a waste of energy, Another name for this is “Action Consciousness”.

Meditation allows one to turn the eye of your attention and awareness within; through practice, gradually the mind becomes quiet and still. This inner awareness is guided by the true knowledge that you are not your body…you are a Soul…a tiny point of Light that embodies so many sterling qualities.Your original nature is of peace, love, power, joy, and bliss. The art and science of Raja Yoga Meditation is a wonderful practice which guides your mind into realizations and recognition of your true identity! Even one minute of awareness of your inner space changes things inside and outside!

Realize that outer space is but a reflection of inner space.
As Without, So Within

The Only Barrier to Your Happiness is the Quality of Your Thoughts…

You are a Point of Light

“Free Yourself from Mental Slavery”is my favorite “Bob Marlyism.

The Highest on High Spiritual Father blesses us with: “Become a Bestower of Liberation and be free from the limitation of your own mind, free from the bondage of negative thoughts.”

The only barrier to your happiness

is the quality of your own thoughts

and the habit of seeing other’s faults and weaknesses.

Be free-Experience the Lightness and Brightness of You, the Soul. This body is oh, so temporary.

To become attached to anything temporary will bring a temporary happiness, with a wake of sorrow, close behind. Retreat into the timeless nature of you, the soul and our original Home far beyond this earth, which will soon be swept completely clean for our New Beginnings.

Your soul has become tired from playing these mortal games and for all the costume changes, lifetime after lifetime. Retreat to your original Purity, your original Happiness, your original Peace.

Remain so full of your original melody of happiness that no tones of sorrow will drown it out!

You are a Being of Light

No longer, out of ego, continually think of the faults of others. Each soul has their own part to play in this eternal drama and is playing it perfectly!

Do not be bound by jealousy, carelessness, or laziness-for this finishes your power of realization. Become free of those subtle bondages and become a liberator of souls who are drowning in despair and weakness.

At this time, the world is governed by a cruel kingdom based on human desires and vices. Everyone has become colored by those vices. They are easy to spot for they are called: anger, greed, lust, ego, and attachment.

The Benevolent One, the Purifier, has come at our darkest hour to establish our original kingdom of True Happiness and True Love. His main direction is to Remember Me, for I will purify you.

Remember your True Self, the self governed by Love and Light. Remember the time when our kingdom was in its full glory. Establish the kingdom within first…feel it in your heart and soul now. Be of faith that it is soon to come, as it once was. Have faith that you are a soul and break the bondages of your body. No longer be a slave of the senses. Become Free, through the pure and positive thoughts of your mind. It is possible-it is the only possibility to return Home in Peace.

WIth thoughts of the Father , the boatman, in your mind, He will take your boat across from this side to the other. Wrapped in Her Light and Love, you will be refreshed, restored, and made new once again.

You no longer belong to this dirty world.

It’s Time to Spread Love

From a Journal Piece written on January 3, 2012

Ocean of True Love ~Haven of Bliss

My heart has left this old world…

I have shifted into the Haven of Bliss, the Ocean of True Love ,

Which I have found by being who I am…

I have left the world that has come out of touch with its own Goodness~

I now have the wisdom to know I am an immortal soul.

I play my part in the Drama of Life,

Knowing it is time to change from humans into angels.

Transform by Filling with God’s Love and Peace

I am becoming the Embodiment of my Angelic Presence filling the atmosphere with God’s Love, Peace, and Comfort.

It is time to spread Love like the Night-Blooming Jasmine whose breath fills the evening air with softness.

Or be like the Rose whose fragrance awakens the heart

Bringing love into every part of life.

The love that was buried so deep behind those iron-aged bars of possession, attachment, and disappointment.

Time is running out, be ready to fly and live in exaltation in this the highest age, the Confluence Age

When truly we can elevate as much as we desire.

What else is there, OH Dearly Beloved but You and Your children all around playing out their parts!

I clearly see and feel Your mission of mercy which is bringing balm to all the brokenness.

You guide me constantly.

You are by my side

I know you Now

As Beloved, Companion, Teacher, Guide, Friend, Father, Mother, Child.

So Close.

I am Yours and You are Mine.

Reach Your Total Brightness of Purity

Fully positive!!! YES, that is the aim~to be pure, positive, and creative even in the face of the negative and most destructive, for the true essence of my being and yours is PURITY! It is this original purity through which all conflict within the soul will come to an end! Purity brings with it peace and with peace, we can experience happiness. Life becomes worth living fully positive!!!

Fully Positive

Fully positive-what does that look like? Being true to the self and not being compromised by anything less…But firstly I must know the Self. Then I can begin to practice and solidify the awareness of who I am as a soul. As I connect with my own innate virtues of purity, peace, love, power, bliss, and joy by going within at frequent points during the day, especially when most of my activities are outwardly directed. As I connect with my own innate original qualities, I can connect with another’s soul’s innate qualities, no matter how they may be acting at the moment! This does take practice, because seeing the worst in others has become an acquired, cultural habit!!!

So I give myself reminders and signals throughout the day. Originally and eternally I am a pure soul, full of divine virtues and powers. And so is everyone else. Having an attitude of soul consciousness and the vision of soul consciousness is really a service. This truth will prevail through intense, consistent attention and practice. As I exude the original qualities of the soul through my thoughts, I help others and myself.

Just remembering to think I am a peaceful, loving soul brings these qualities into my awareness and then they can be brought into my actions. This is how to practice soul consciousness. Take a few powerful thoughts into your day and connect with them often in your awareness. From awareness into action...this is the method!

Experiment each day or week with a different attribute you wish to increase and accumulate within your being. One week have your focus on purity~create a mantra or a “go to ” slogan such as I have only pure and positive thoughts and feelings about myself and others! Think this, each time you drink a glass of water or a cup of tea. Stir your pure thoughts about yourself into your food as you prepare it and eat it. Changes will happen.

Everything that exists began with a thought. Soon you will embody what you practice.

Build enthusiasm for your practice! Know that the results you create are not temporary! They are being embedded in the fabric of you, the soul. Enthusiasm brings with it God’s help. The root of enthusiasm is “theo” from the Greek. Theo refers to God as in the word: “theology” which is the study of God. To be enthusiastic, is to be with God.

Be gentle with yourself and at the same time nurture your zeal and enthusiasm to regain your true and original, eternal identity! I am a pure and positive soul!

Fully positive, yes, it is my true nature. As I was, so I will be again!!!

Become stable in knowing the truth of your own being.

Shine steadily wherever you are.

Your light brings hope to the darkness and ignites the lights of others.

This is true service. This is what it means to be the change!

Be the lotus which grows in the mud, connected to all, but remains untouched and lovely!!!

The Biggest Change You Can Make is to Consider Yourself to Be a Soul~

To consider myself to be a soul means to become aware of my Self and of the innermost power of peace.

For this I turn inward and become aware of what is happening inside.

Reaching into my very core, beyond the issues of the body, I become aware of my inner world, a space of silence.

In order to stabilize in this beautiful, rich place, I talk to myself like this.

I am a being of light, sparkling behind the center of the forehead like a shining star.

I center my attention here to know my original nature of peace and purity.

I the soul am pure and peaceful.

Peace and purity are my original nature.

If any other thoughts come into my mind, I choose to let them go , as if nothing happened.

As I give attention to what I wish to experience…I feel peaceful and pure.

I am a being shining from the center of the forehead.

The depth to which I can experience peaceful feelings depends on my purity. To be easily disturbed by situations and people’s comments and behavior is a good sign that I must purify inside. To do so, requires help from the Almighty, the One who is also called “The Ocean of Peace”.

My purity depends upon remembering this One and to merge into His Unlimited Nature of Peace, in order to restore my own reserves of peace and accumulate the power of peace.

For if I am peaceful, I will be happy. For with the vibrations of peace everything moves smoothly. Therefore let me speak inside to the self~with this affirmation.

I, the shining light am connecting to the Supreme Light. I am merging ~light into light to absorb the gift of peace from the Source of Peace.

In order to merge with the Supreme Peace, I must become aware of where that One resides. I must go there in my mind to make a connection and to charge up from the powerhouse of peace.

Enjoy this wonderful journey of remembering your true nature of purity and peace.

You will become happy and help others to be happy as well.

Happiness and Peace are our original birthright.

ENLIGHTENED ANSWERS

Laughter lives in your eyes, enabling you to see pathways that lead to happiness.

Is it possible there is one way to free yourself from the world of emotional pain, sorrow, fear, and regret? Sure, you might be thinking, and how much does it cost, and how long will I need to try it, and for how long will it work?

Asking these kinds of questions comes from the present state of the human condition: materially-minded, limited, and trapped in a world with many issues and lots of false, expensive claims.

This state is very familiar to all of us-as a matter of fact, most of humanity is immersed in what I have recognized after much meditation and then in a flash ( inspired by a great teacher) that the world of sorrow is all around, but we have a choice, to live in it or not!

Once you recognize…
