6.24 When all desires are in peace and the mind, withdrawing within, gathers the multitudinous straying senses into the harmony of recollection,
6.25 Then, with reason armed with resolution, let the seeker quietly lead the mind into the Spirit, and let all his thoughts be silence. – The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 6)
A harmonious mind that withdraws inwards is what The Gita touts as being the main pre-requisite to contact with the Divine.
in the silence
A resolute mind that’s in the silence can approach ‘Spirit’ which resides in such a mind. In the continued silence can be heard the guidance of the spirit. It’s the ‘still small voice’ that struggles to be heard beyond the electro-chemical storm that brews inside our brains. It’s also a joyous explosion of love that can be felt rising from the deepest parts of such a quiet mind. It’s palpable and very real.
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM still and conscious of THAT which IS.
