Resting Point: Ways to Restore Your Energy



Your endless activity and “doing” can make you so tired that when you finally take a moment to stop, listen, and relax, you will often go to sleep out of habit.

A better choice would be to be present and alert and to listen past the inner conversations of the mind, listen past the sounds of the world, and just listen to the silence.  Listen attentively to whatever comes forward out of the silence.

If things start to distract and disrupt you, bring your focus back to the silence.  As many times as the silence is broken, you can refocus on listening to the silence one more time.

When you practice bringing your presence into the silence, you will experience a knowing and a wisdom that will start flowing within you.  It will usually bring you to a state of peace, calm, and clarity.

Then, if something comes to mind that needs to be done, instead of rushing into it, you will know that it can be accomplished in a relaxed way without breaking your connection with the inner silence.

How do you connect with the inner silence?

John Roger, D.S.S with Paul Kaye, D.S.S

And sometimes it takes me a lot longer … and I need to really forgive and let go of those things standing in my way …
