The Silence

The space and silence are necessary to go beyond the limitations of consciousness

Victor Manuel Guzmán Villena
The reality never says to us what to do, it does not speak, never is imperative; the universe speaks of indicative and present; the game of life is not another thing that intelligence taking consciousness of itself through multitude of forms.

In the universe everything is present. The universe is one, nothing exists outside that unique reality, is necessary to perceive from the interior of the universe because the center is ourself. To know is to be, and for that there is no another life only silence; is the sufficient and necessary condition so that the intuition is pronounced, and silence is not the absence of words, is the cessation of all identification with everything, is fixed its abstraction on the observation; this essential silence we called inner monitoring, is the universe, is to be conscious that the human is the center of the universe.

Silence cannot exist if there is no sound, reason why is necessary to make the exercise of silence to arrive at the sound. Silence has a particularity, to force the individual to talk with the inner self, to watch and to know ourselves. Therefore this mystery is not or discovered in the world, is found and is learned in the heart of the humandkind who look for it to improve their existence. Silence, although seems rare to say, can help the human being to find answers to their own mystery.

There is three types of silence

-The physical silence that consists of not speaking and strictly not to generate noise.
-Mental silence is not think.
-Spiritual silence is to get at total silence to find the field of the supreme manifestation.

The steps to find silence are: Silence like same exercise; and the meditation.
The first step is: Silence by silence; that is in the willpower to execute it. Is to learn to control the exact handling of the words. In order to obtain this silence is necessary to concentrate the attention in almost imperceptible subtle elements that never is customary to listen like the beat of the heart, creak of the floors, the breathing.

The other step: To be silent to listen; if we are in the magnanimous nature and we chose to remain silent and to suspend all human action and demonstrated a humility act and of respect we learn to listen to the messages of the nature through wind, the water, the trees and all this constitutes a food to our spirit to feel the pure messages without prejudices and intentions.

The third is: The meditation; it is step beyond silence itself. No longer is a food for the soul but constitutes the divine essence. The meditation allows us to realise physical silence and mental silence, where no longer it is the will but a force that makes us to be silent in our mind. It is the moment at which we must accept to the thought like a river, flowing ideas until comes a time in which is silent and only energy flows.

The concentration of the energy and the attention at one end where the soul flowing, without apprehension, desires, without anxieties, let the soul flow is essential. The life that we have has little solitude, but at the same time is loaded of pains, conflicts, joys, but they become insensible, since we are never alone, since we are tied to yesterday, to the memory; and we took with us these loads that do not allow us to leave the past and only when we confronted and we solve at that precise moment we arrived at the solitude. It is important to arrive at the solitude and to give to this space importance in the search of the virtue and the freedom.

No virtue can work without this vast space in itself, silence is necessary to us since we cannot have contact with the new thing if we are not alone, without any experience, influences, that is to say we must be empty, - the container must be empty to be fill-, and his quiet spirit only has the possibility of being clearly. The unique goal is to generate a state of spirit able to dominate the thought and if we do not establish true foundations against the fear, pain, anxiety we will not be able to leave and to have a free spirit of torture.

The space and silence are necessary to go beyond the limitations of consciousness. The question is How an active spirit can be in calm? We can mold it, to persecute an ideal that consists of having a calmed spirit, but does not have no effect if we acted with rigor since he stagnates. To exert a control in any form is repression, that is to say a conflict is exerted, and most of our lives are disciplined by the outside pressures of the society, the family, our sufferings, of our experiences, our conformity to an ideology and its structure. These disciplines are mortal, thus we must avoid them through eliminating the repressions and fears.

Again we asked ourselves and How to do it? This is not about disciplining and then acquire the freedom. The freedom is necessary to acquire at the beginning and not at the end. To understand is to free ourselves of the conformism in the matter of discipline. The same act to learn is discipline, that is to say it becomes clarity to understand the nature of the things and the whole structure.

Silence allows the encounter with ourselves, is a step to another level of the most harmonic sound, the silence cannot be described, since everything what can be described is well-known, and one cannot get rid of the well-known but dying every day, so that the cells of the brain are always fresh and innocent, But this quality it is not only the beauty of silence, this silence is a small beginning as if one move from a small hollow towards the immensity of the ocean and we not understand it verbally but we have understood the structure of consciousness
