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 ;-)!

5 Ways How Creating Art Improves Our Leadership Skills

Edhat eDP_artby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
a little while ago I shared a post with the question, if Indigo Children, Crystal Children and Empathic People are the natural leader for our Golden Age of Aquarius. Over the month that followed many people reported, that they start developing their own inner understanding of what that means in their life, and how to bring themselves into the bigger picture of our human collective evolution. Now it might not come as a surprise, that many of this personality types have a deep love for the Arts. So far, just about everybody I met with this traits, has a big heart for expressing themselves in one if the many universal languages that Art is providing. This desire is implanted in their soul, because in general human
leadership is most needed, when facing a complex problem or a new experience that can’t be easily quantified, and the same thing is Creating Art teaching us. When we spend time with our inner voice and wait until it has something to say to the outside world, we automatically  train our eyes to see the divine blueprint within us.
For the healthy development of our oneness world, we need people who have the trained skills and natural abilities to work in harmony with others, a balance that Indigo and Crystals naturally seek. And for all of us it is time to realize who we really are and to step forward, in order to lead with new ideas and initiatives that can bring a Brotherhood of Men into reality on Planet Earth. Creating are and letting our ideas, hopes and dreams take form that way, allows us to connect with our deep emotions, our unanswerable questions, and the general mysteries of life. So here are five ways how creating art can helps us to develop the skills, to become great leader for our community, family our friends and most of all for our own life:a1. Increased Creativity
Creativity just like intuition functions just like our muscles. The more we use it, the better we are in flow and the more easily our ability to express grows. Within a human being, creativity is a mix of the creator abilities we all have (sitting in the first chakra) and the playful, colorful impulses of the divine feminine in the second chakra. So one of the things we do when we create art, is getting in touch with the unsolved past in this areas, which can than lead to the release of this old negativity. Also important to keep in mind, is that creativity is not just about expressing ourselves and creating aesthetics, but also about solving problems. An artist seeks to find solutions beyond our consensual understanding of problems, pushes against the borders of society and develops brand new solutions, from thing that by others are seen as trash. They are pioneers of inventing and testing out new ideas and sensibilities for our collective human evolution. All qualities that are important for effective leadership.

2. Accepting Rejection
Creating art means to take a piece of something that is vivid inside of your own soul, and turn it into a materialized manifestation on planet earth. It means to put yourself out there and happily live with what ever comes back. Sharing our art without attachment to any outcome, trains us to be brave, even courageous in accepting rejection. It is a totally normal thing that not everybody likes the same song, and there is no problem or harm in that. But, there is the big chance, to grow strong inside in order to be a clear channel for the innovations and new information, that can only flow thru you into this world. To be a great leader for a world to come, we will have to go against the mainstream in terms of thinking, and taking on challenges that others can’t understand. So we need to be willing and capable of being ridiculed or criticized for our ideas and actions.descarga3. Training to Be and Share
Or world is now rapidly changing and more and more people are waking up to deeper levels of their own inner truth. Daily more Indigo Children, Crystal Children and Empath are coming into their power and understand their traits as blessings. That also means that there are more people on the planet with the capacity to control every move human beings do, with their physical bodies sensory self (well known as 6th sense). At the same time the picture of what leadership actually means is changing and people realize, that leading has more to do with honesty, authenticity and a unconditional love for the higher good of all, than with money, a position that allows to overpower others or tons of possessions. When we nurture our personal expression through the arts, we turn inward, seek to know ourselves, face inner demons, and ultimately discover our own potential. Doing that makes us real, fearless and even capable of sharing what we found to be true for us.

4. Understanding Universal Symbolism
While we design art, if we are aware of it or not, we are playing with the shapes, the sacred geometries, the archetypes, the numerology, the mythologies and the symbolism of the whole universe. In every piece of art appearing on the planet, there is a spark of the essence that makes us all exist. People who see themselves as artists, poets, musicians, divinely inspired creator have a strong sense of what moves and shapes the universe we live in, and to be a leaders for our collective golden future, we need to have a deep sense and emotional intelligence for how myths and symbols, geometries and music shapes our collective understanding. Just look at big pieces that move the world like the Taj Mahal (that was build as an expression of a the never ending love story), the Bhagavad Gita (written out of love for humanity) or songs like Silent Night that move the masses, all over the world.images

5.) Letting others Shine
While our need to create art often starts in early age as a very personal and individual form of expression, it often grows into a more collective experience. After all, what would be a great lead-singer without a band and backup singers. And a good leader has to be able to co-operate and create with others.  Doing so allows us to develop the ability to let others shine, without feeling threatened or attacked by their abilities. A natural leader knows when to step in and give the collective a direction, and when to step back and let others do their part.

I hope this information has inspired you to pick up your brush, learn a new song, sculpture your momentary feeling, or what ever else your very personal, authentic expression of Art might be. I hope you discover the fun again to do things, just for the sake of doing them, free of desired for a particular outcome and maybe even steered your curiosity of what your soul might be interested expressing. Love and Happy Coloring your life :-)!!!

6 Abilities An Awakening Men Desires In A Woman

Sacred-Masculine-Feminineby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the other day I had an amazing conversation with a close friend of mine. He is a beautiful man, who I know is seeking awakening within himself. A true love seeker waiting for a chance, to manifest all the amazing things he found inside – in co-creation with a woman in the outside world. Being aware of all that, I was really interested in his feelings about what an awakening man truly desires in women these days. Read below what he shared with me:

1) An awakened man wants your true authentic self:
An man on the awakening path, needs a woman who knows herself. A woman who clearly is aware of her core values, strong and centered enough not to change – just to be with him. A woman who does not feel the need to prove herself to anyone. Not to him, not to the outside world. A woman who knows how to communicate, live and share her desires. He will be grateful to her, as long as she shares her true authentic self with him. The loving, inspiring and embracing parts of your true being, as much as the challenging and not so comforting parts. A woman willing to take full responsibility for her being, and her own feelings.

2) He needs her to generate her own happiness:
An evolved man wants to share his life with a woman, in love with her own life and being. He desires her radiant joy to be present in the room, when ever he is with her. I am not talking about faking it or denying, that there will be tough times. He simply wants her aware enough to know, that she’s responsible for her own happiness. He needs her to live connected to her own inner source of radiance and happiness, and share whatever she generates from this source with the world. A sign of an awakening man!! He is interested in her sharing with the world, not jealously watching her to make sure she is not giving to much away!! In an new world paradigm relationship both partners are aware, that sharing their capacity to love with the world – will also benefit the loving energy-flow within the intimate relationship.anima_and_animo3) He desires to feel her love flowing towards him freely:
I believe this is one of the key-abilities we need to gain back as human collective and, that men AND women deeply desire to feel free again in loving each other. Jesus Christ told us that – we have to become children again – in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. Well, do you remember how it was when you where a child and met your best friend, your closest soul…. how you run to them, how you embraced them with all your being, how you exhaled little sounds of delight – simple for seeing him/her again!!??
This kind of fearless radiant love is it, an evolved man desires to feel from his partner. Willi Nelson expressed this beautifully in one of his songs… “She is not ashamed to be a woman, she is not afraid to be a friend. Loving her is easier, than anything I will ever do again”.

4) He needs her to be supportive:
A man on his awakening path does not think of himself as perfect. To the opposite, if he is wise he knows – growing, shifting and changing is part of our existence here on earth and where we failed yesterday – already today we have a chance to succeed. That is why he needs his woman to love him unconditionally, while she needs to be profoundly aware of his imperfections. He wants her to help him hold his own inner light against them, so he feels the freedom to evolve – free of judgment about his former words and deeds. He needs her to hold her own space – never abuse herself to “safe” him, AND to be there when ever she can – to share her authentic truth. He wants her to hold him accountable to his highest potential as a man, in a loving and respectful manner. And he needs her to call him on his bullshit, if she sees him acting out of integrity or playing small in his life.

5.) Honest and clear communication:
The one thing that woman need to understand is, most men aren’t equipped to read minds and also not to read subtle clues. Evolved couples communicate!!! They do so – in a deeply vulnerably manner, with appreciation for each others differences and, with the ultimate goal of creating a win-win situation for both. Man need to get out of their comfort zone, and talk about their feeling. Women need to stop throwing hints and manipulating, and choose an honest expression of their own authentic desire instead. An intimate relationship is a powerful tool for personal evolution. An awakening man knows to appreciate, that he’ll always be growing and evolving – if he has a truthfully communicating partner at his side.sea6) He needs her feminine surrender:
Now don’t get me wrong, this is not about regressing to surrendering your fate to “the man”. It is about giving our deepest inner feminine energies, to the deepest inner masculine energies of our partner. It is about the ability to relax into his embrace and trust him. To let him feel – that what ever happened between “MEN” and the woman he is dating in this very moment, you trust him NOW. And that you will do everything to protect your mutual relationship, from the negative impact you might still carry inside from former relations. It is about opening this beautiful flower of life, every woman’s body and mind is, and allow him to enter with his whole being. An awakening man desires a woman who trusts his commitment, to serving a life purpose beyond his own little tyrant ego’s wishes. No hidden corners, no back-doors, no withholding, no negotiations; than you are truly his and he is truly yours!!

So Ladies “Good News”!! The bigger picture is quite simple, an evolved man doesn’t actually want anything in particular from a woman other than her authentic self! I hope this conclusions bring inspiration and hope into your life!! And, that your next relationship will be based on values co clear and strong, that it may last, and last, and lastThank you for making the world a more beautiful place with your courage!!
Blessings an Love ;-)!
