The egg and the sperm sit together in stillness waiting, as though deciding what to do next. In a moment of complete stillness life force energy suddenly erupts and within fractions of a second the first cells form and a new life dynamic rapidly begins.
All life revolves and evolves out of fulcrums of energy. Like earth bound tornados we are at times very aware of the madness of spinning vortices of energy that threaten to rip to shreds life as we know it. After the initial chaos and confusion there is a time of stillness, a time to re-organize, re-group and re-build.
It is a frightening process to go into the stillness because we are usually already aware of the storm that must be endured before reaching the still point. The still point however offers us a mystical perspective. We get a chance to experience an emerging consciousness, a new seed of possibility that offers a new way forward. Sometimes when we stay too focused on the storm we miss the opportunity at hand. Life ebbs and flows, moving in and out, up and down, like waves it returns us evermore to the stillness; to the point where we can choose how we will proceed.
When I hold my workshops and presentations there inevitably comes a time in the session where we - all the participants, collectively reach that 'still point'. It's a magical moment that happens between 2 people or 200 people. When 2 or more are gathered we have an opportunity to come into a collective synchronization. In a moment of harmony, faith and surrender we willingly allow our energy fields to merge into oneness. It's the moment where we become entrained to the one consciousness that governs all consciousness. It is a harmonic convergence and is peaceful to heart and soul. It brings us to the awareness that we are indeed one and in that oneness we have the opportunity to create a potential of new growth and experience that will produce unimaginable results.
In the shared collective of stillness we establish a powerful new beginning point for any project or endeavour. A new dynamic of life can emerge which in turn will spawn a whole other series of developments. It only takes a moment. If we're not careful we could miss it. In a desperate clinging to ideas of individualism and separation we may turn our focus back to the chaos and ignore the tiny spark of magic that is the gateway to universal wisdom.
In the magical synergy of collective consciousness we sit at the threshold of creation. In meditation we strive to experience the stillness, the place of objectively observing and witnessing the dynamic energy of life without being swayed by the ongoing drama of life expressing. This is not a dead, silent, passive position of escaping life around us but rather it is dynamic and potent, presenting us with a motivating energy that can move mountains. When we experience the stillness we realize that we are completely centred and grounded. Our core is connected to heaven and earth. Everything that is relevant to our lives is knowable in that moment.
Knowing the Inner God
In our stillness we have the opportunity to listen to our highest inner wisdom. In stillness we can communicate with our own innate highest principle and in that same stillness we come to know our Divine Nature. To be present to the organizing principle of our individual life stream is to know the God within and to understand fully that there is nothing that does not collapse in to the fullness of every moment. It is in the collapsing of chaos into order, of action into stillness, that we manifest our lives. It is in the bearing witness of this phenomena that we come to realize the vast stores of energy that we are and the budding potential as creators that we hold in the ever collapsing relationship between heart and mind, one always surrendering it's will to the other until a peaceful harmony in established. This takes trust and patience.
The fulcrums of swirling energy are noisy and constantly urge us into taking action. But trying to deliberately organize the chaos is like trying to rake leaves in a windstorm. We must wait, surrendering to winds of change, allowing the dust to settle, ready to sit in the ensuing moment of stillness if we want to live for our highest good.
