This is the challenge of any kind of meditation or true prayer. Your overthinking mind will go into overdrive. Recognize that this will happen. It will test your resolve.
An essential part of the journey is that you awaken from the what the modern mystic Eckhart Tolle refers to as, “The normal insanity.” (The Power of Now—Eckhart Tolle)
You cannot serve two Masters—Matthew 6-24
Your choice is which Master will you serve? Will you serve the interests of the personal sense of self with its will to power or the transpersonal Self with its Will to Love?
Entering the experience of silence without demands and without expectation is the practice of self-emptying.
It is the practice of real prayer. This is what St. Paul meant when he suggested that we learn to “Pray always.” In this way, you learn to abide at the Still Point Centre.
When you live from the center you impact the world in ways you might or might not know. You are no longer out to fix the world but to be a vehicle for healing.
The foundational healing is that of the separate personal self. This identification with the separate personal self is the core reason for most unnecessary suffering.
