The Silent Center points to the core of our Being – our own consciousness. The field of awareness is the home of clarity, insight, inspiration, peace and freedom.
In truth, we are never separate from this center of silence. We can be conscious of this by noticing the silence that is deeper and closer than any thought. When we bring ourselves fully present with what is present here in this moment, thinking stops and what remains is the field of awareness. Check it out; are you the stream of thinking or consciousness that is aware of the thinking?
Recognition of the truth of one’s self is somewhat like waking from a dream or coming out of a hypnotic trance. Making this distinction between consciousness and the stream of thinking has many benefits; lowering stress, increasing respons-ibility, and realization of an expansiveness that is impossible to describe, some call it love.
