The Positive And The Negative Side Of Silence – Part I

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
in many pieces that I am reading these days on the internet, people share information about silence and the beauty in experience as well as the health benefits of inner silence for the human being. I myself shared an article a while ago called Osho On The Influence Of Inner Silence On World Peace. In a spiritual sense of the words “inner silence”, we are talking about a state that allows us to receive and process the “outside world” as well as the “inner world”, from a place of observation and calm.
A state of being, in which this two worlds can melt back together, in the presence of purity and emptiness. In Buddhist teachings this emptiness is known as the void of creation itself, for many indigenous traditions it is the divine mother womb. All very beautiful, colorful and loving translations, when approached from of spiritual awareness.

On the material level of life, collectively there are some very different expressions and experiences connected to the word silence. I collected here 2 different dictionary explanations, so we can evaluate what the collective of human kind has agreed on so far.

Definition of silence according to the website dictionary.com:
1. absence of any sound or noise; stillness.
2. the state or fact of being silent; muteness.
3. absence or omission of mention, comment, or expressed concern: the conspicuous silence of our newspapers on local graft.
4. the state of being forgotten; oblivion: in the news again after years of silence.
5. concealment; secrecy. verb (used with object), silenced, silencing.
6. to put or bring to silence; still.
7. to put (doubts, fears, etc.) to rest; quiet.
8. Military sense to still (enemy guns), as by more effective fire.

Definition of silence according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary:
1: forbearance from speech or noise : muteness — often used interjectionally
2: absence of sound or noise : stillness in the silence of the night
3: absence of mention:
a: oblivion, obscurity;
b: secrecy weapons research was conducted in silence

I guess most people could agree on calling the absence of noise a pleasant experience; many moments of not talking as refreshing; but already when it comes to being forgotten – I think the character is changing – continually so with being brought to silence; and the even more disturbing mental union of “gun fire and silence”. I will continue on the details in a second post and leave the emotional expression to the below artists for now!

“Quiet” – written by Milck and AG
put on your face
know your place
shut up and smile
don’t spread your legs
I could do that

But no one knows me no one ever will
if I don’t say something, if I just lie still
Would I be that monster, scare them all away
If I let the-em hear what I have to say

I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
A one woman riot, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I can’t keep quiet
For anyone
Anymore

Cuz no one knows me no one ever will
if I don’t say something, take that dry blue pill
they may see that monster, they may run away
But I have to do this, do it anyway
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
A one woman riot, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh I can’t keep quiet

Let it out Let it out
Let it out now
There’ll be someone who understands
Let it out Let it out
Let it out now
Must be someone who’ll understand
Let it out Let it out
Let it out now
There’ll be someone who understands
Let it out Let it out
Let it out now

I can’t keep quiet

Dear Ones, I hope you are seeing yourself develop a clear voice an find ways of authentic expression  these days! May we all be blessed with the higher awareness of what it is that needs to be contemplated and translated in deep inner silence, and what it is we need to clearly raise our voice for and stand strong in our fiery desire for positive and peaceful change in this world!
Love and Quiet Prayers!
Edith

Osho on the Influence of Inner Silence on World Peace

inner-peaceby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
since the Cancer Full Moon on December 25th, there has already been a big shift in the collective level of vibration, creating a little moment of relaxation.The last few days I talked about the magic returning to our beautiful planet, how the 11:11 code is influencing our creations right now and what to expect, when this frequencies collectively settle in and naturally change our behavior. In my post about the collective cleansing of the first chakra for all human beings incarnated, I mentioned our new born potential for the creation of world peace emerging from our inner place of silence. Well I am not the only one who thinks that way. Osho had the same idea, already quite a while ago.

This is what Osho had to say on Silence:
Silence usually is understood to be something negative, something empty, an absence of sound, of noises. This misunderstanding is prevalent because very few people have ever experienced silence. All that they have experienced in the name of silence is noiselessness. But silence is a totally different phenomenon. It is utterly positive. It is existential, it is not empty. It is overflowing with a music that you have never heard before, with a fragrance that is unfamiliar to you, with a light that can only be seen by the inner eyes. It is not something fictitious; it is a reality, and a reality which is already present in everyone — just we never look in. All our senses are extrovert. Our eyes open outside, our ears open outside, our hands move outside, our legs… all our senses are meant to explore the outside world.
But there is a sixth sense also, which is asleep because we have never used it. And no society, no culture, no educational system helps people to make the sixth sense active. That sixth sense, in the East, is called “the third eye”. It looks inwards. And just as there is a way of looking in, so there is a way of hearing in, so there is a way of smelling in. Just as there are five senses moving outward, there are five counter-senses moving inward. In all, man has ten senses, but the first sense that starts the inner journey is the third eye, and then other senses start opening up.kkYour inner world has its own taste, has its own fragrance, has its own light. And it is utterly silent, immensely silent, eternally silent. There has never been any noise, and there will never be any noise. No word can reach there, but you can reach. The mind cannot reach there, but you can reach because you are not the mind. The function of the mind is again to be a bridge between you and the objective world, and the function of the heart is to be a bridge between you and yourself. The silence that I have been talking about is the silence of the heart. It is a song in itself, without words and without sounds. It is only out of this silence that the flowers of love grow. It is this silence that becomes the Garden of Eden. Meditation, and only meditation, is the key to open the doors of your own being. Humanity has simply thought of silence as just an absence — an absence of noises. But it actually has positive qualities, a positive sound. The physical body knows its own silence — that is its own well-being, its own overflowing health, its own joy. The mind also knows its silence, when all thoughts disappear and the sky is without any clouds, just a pure space. But the silence I am talking about is far deeper. I am talking about the silence of your being.
These silences that you are talking about can be disturbed. For example yoga exercise gives a silence of the body, and many get stuck there. Their whole life, they practice, but they know only the most superficial silence. But than sickness can disturb the silence of your body, and death is certainly going to disturb it. A single thought can disturb the silence of your mind, the way a small pebble thrown into the silent lake is enough to create thousands of ripples, and the lake is no longer silent. The silence of the body and the mind are very fragile and very superficial, but in themselves they are important. To experience them is helpful, because it indicates that there may be even deeper silences of the heart. And the day you experience the silence of the heart, it will be again an arrow of longing, moving you even deeper. Your very center of being is the center of the All. Whatever happens around it does not affect it; it is eternal silence. Days come and go, years come and go, ages come and pass, lives come and go, but the eternal silence of your being remains exactly the same — the same soundless music, the same fragrance of godliness, the same transcendence from all that is mortal, from all that is momentary.
It is not your silence. You are it.llSilence is not something in your possession; you are possessed by it, and that’s the greatness of it. Even you are not there, because even your presence will be a disturbance. The silence is so profound that there is nobody, not even you. And this silence brings truth, and unconditional love, and thousands of other blessings to you. This is the search, this is the longing of all the hearts. But remember, don’t get lost in the silence of the body, or the silence of the mind, or even the silence of the heart. Beyond these three is the fourth. We, in the East, have called it simply “the fourth,” turiya. We have not given it any name. Instead of a name we have given it a number, because it comes after three silences — of the body, of the mind, of the heart — and beyond it, there is nothing else to be found.

Dear Ones, I hope you feel energized, motivated and inspired by this words!! I hope you choose to make a commitment of self-love to increase your inner peace and silence, every single day of your life for a little bit. I hope you feel blissfully excited for the time to come and the many amazing collective changes we will experience. Keep breathing deeply, taking in all the beauty this magical time is providing for us, and loving life with every step of the way! Awakening blessings and Love ;-)!

The Collective Awakening Into Christ Consciousness &The Holy-Days

20by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the Holy Days are coming closer and the Full Moon energies are strongly shining ahead. A wonderfully balanced and harmonic frequency is transmitted right now, to assist us over the Christmas Days. After the 12/12/2015 frequency Gateway, the Grand Galactic Alignment and the recent Solstice, the collectively rather overwhelmingly strong impact is calming down and relaxation settles in. At the same time is the nurturing power of the Christ Light more present than any other time in the year. Techniques such as forgiveness work on the family tree, purifying our energy field, designing blessings for next years cycle, and calling in guardian angels or the ascended masters, are especially effective in the days around the Christmas Fest.
These expanded flow that all this energetic openings have created, is now emerging through the dimensional doorways, carrying the pure light of consciousness that is holding the divine blueprint for this time. This energy frequency can be received by us through our crown chakra and the heart center. The awakening energy supports us collectively to move into a higher state of awareness. Which further leads to the creation of a series of multi-dimensional pathways, for us to access new dimensions of unconditional love, sharing and authentic co-creation. These pathways are designed to enable us to directly access the higher truth of our inner guidance. Quite dramatic life change can be needed, as old pattern finally begin to disintegrate. Maybe you feel like discovering your family a new!! During this particular Holy Days, we are blessed with the Planet Neptune, the planet of ideals and purification, in positive flow with the Sun and the Moon. This is a wonderful energy to be with family and friends, lovingly served by the universe to make our Holiday reunions happy encounters.aMore than two-thousand years ago, Jesus of Nazareth has created the divine highway of light, of the Christ Consciousness, Christ Awareness or I AM Awareness. The Golden Awareness of our divine inner light. The Jesus path of Christ Consciousness, is a path of self-discipline and self-mastery. In the collective consciousness Jesus Christ is manly remembered for his willingness to sacrifice his physical life, in order to proof that human beings carry the divine powers of resurrection and ascension
within themselves. What people rarely consider when thinking of the sacrifices of Jesus Christ, is that the word sacrifice comes from ‘to make sacred.’ The old Krishna practice, shamanic life approach and Buddha teaching, of thinking of everything as sacred, seeing everything as sacred, touching everything as sacred. It is on us to make the change, and the allow the divine support system to truly shift our world few.

Here are ten Common Effects a Christ Consciousness shift into Higher Vibrations can trigger:
1.) You might feel even stronger your empathy than usually, and need more down time.
2.) You may experience unstable emotions and physical sensations similar to growth pain, temporary sickness or other release signs.
3.) You don’t feel like being in the presence of people who can’t handle their emotions.
4.) You get more sensitive to fights and disagreements people try to pin on you, and less willing to balance the energies for others.
5.) You start having flashbacks into states of heightened awareness during work or in public places, can suddenly see the bigger picture of situations.
6.) Your energy field gets more comforting for animals, so they start increasingly coming to you.
7.) Total strangers feel the desire to open up to you about their hidden inner side or their life story.
aa8.) You start enjoying more and more outdoor activities, as nature feels now deeper relaxing and stronger nourishing to you.
9.) You develop an increased awareness for your hand and foot ckakras, as they start buzzing, vibrating, or pulsating when you are called to use them for healing.
10.) You might develop a strong interest in the healing arts in general, or discover that you have a natural talent there.

Dear Friends, I hope you will take a little time for yourself during the constant movements of this Holy Season, and spend them with “Christ Conscious Self- Love Awareness”. May you be blessed with loving friends and harmonic family meetings, and may the shifts of the Cancer Full Moon bring balance, closeness and authentic communication into your tribal meetings!! Holy-Season Blessings an Love ;-)!
