I recently sent out a newsletter (you can subscribe at the upper-left of the page) discussing how everything you need for Enlightenment is found in the Silence. It’s all within.
There were some wonderful responses to the newsletter, as well as one unsubscribe email that was particularly fantastic. It read:
Your advice, actually: “You see, if you’re looking for Enlightenment, it’s in the Silence that everything you seek is found.” I understand that to mean I don’t need your newsletters. Thanks, though!
Of course you don’t need my newsletters!
It means you don’t need ANYTHING!
You already have and are EVERYTHING you could possibly want!
What a gift!
(Actually, wouldn’t that suck if what you wanted could only come from someone else outside yourself? What if you couldn’t find them or they refused to give it to you? Then you’d be totally screwed! Fortunately, everything you seek is found within.)
The Love that you seek arises from the Silence that you are within.
The Peace that you seek arises from the Silence that you are within.
The Enlightenment that you seek arises from the Silence that you are within.
ALL that you seek is already available within, INCLUDING what you think is outside of you.
Just like other spiritual teachers, I’m not here to give you anything you don’t already have, but rather to point you towards where you’re not yet looking (within) and thus discover who you already are.
You truly need nothing else to awaken.
Just be yourself, your True Self.
