According to the wisdom of the Tantric tradition, our lives are dictated by our energy. Thus, it is wise to be conscious of how we use our energy. How do we nurture ourselves to create energy that helps us use this energy in a serviceful and uplifting way?
Sages tell us that we noursih our energy through Silence.
I read this article by Rod Stryker, Discovering the Sacred Within. He discusses Swami Rama’s teachings about the Tantric tradition and how important it is that we are able to access deep silence within our consciousness so that we can be nourished by the love that flourishes in deep silence.
In relation to the One Heart Fire, I thought about listening to the silence within the fire. When we deeply listen to and access our own inner silence, we can also learn to deeply listen to the inner silence within all things and beings. It is so soothing to sit by the fire and listen to the sounds the fire makes; but, isn’t it even more soothing to listen for the silence within the fire’s roaring sound?
So, regardless of me being so far away from the San Shamans in southern Africa, I am still committed to listening to the inner silence within the One Heart Fire that they will ignite on May 24. And I am committed to listening to the silence within You.
Please join me in practicing Maha Gyan Agni Pranayam as a way to honor the San Shamans of southern Africa who will Ignite the One Heart Fire. They are lighting this fire to acknowledge humanity’s transformation into the Ninth Wave of Creation, into enlightened unity consciousness. Isn’t that beautiful?
May we realize that the silence within ourselves is the same sweet silence within all things and beings. May we recognize the Love that dwells within the silence between the beats of the One Heart. Sat Nam!
