The Wise Silence Of Consciousness

The things we now esteem fixed shall, one by one, detach themselves, like all ripe fruit, from our experience and fall. The wind shall blow them none knows wither. The landscape, the figures, Boston, London, are facts as fugitive as any institution past, or any whiff of mist or smoke, and so is society, and so is the world. The soul looketh steadily forwards, creating a world for her, leaving worlds behind her. She has no dates, no rites, nor persons, nor specialties, nor men. The soul knows only the soul; the web of events is the flowing robe in which she is clothed.

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote those thoughts in 1841. Emerson believed that our physical consciousness is contained and made one by the entity known as the over-soul. Beliefs are thoughts reinforced by emotions as well as imagination so they are powerful vibrations. They impact the nature of our individual as well as mass reality.

Beliefs develop from within. They leave indelible, but changeable marks on the ego. We can’t touch our beliefs, but we do feel them emotionally. The sense of believing impacts the atoms and molecules in our cells, and we become what we believe. The brain accepts this form of inner energy, and it utilizes it to form portions of our reality. Most of us are not cognizant of the power that is buried in our repetitive thoughts.

The inner sound of our thoughts has a huge impact on the body. The cells listen to those sounds and the body reacts. There’s also a wise silence within the body. That silence can change our body and our reality when we allow it to override our belief structure. When we identify the reason we believe in or for something, we discover the thoughts that restrict that silence.

The wise silence within us percolates with natural desires. In each moment, clouds of silence vacillate in rotating energy. The complexity of the events that unfold from that innate silence moves through the dynamic spiral of time and space. The silence lingers like smoke, and we become more than we believe.
