Where do we find spiritual truth? In a church, from a Guru, in India?
Of course not: The sages of the ages have all pointed us to the “silence of the mind”.
So many try to stop their thinking through meditation or fasting. Yet it is hard work and doesn’t last for long.
The reason the mind is not silent is because we choose to listen to and believe our thinking.
Yet thoughts do not hold truth. Try to find spiritual truth through thought and you’ll end up very frustrated. Thoughts are just empty energetic formations made of consciousness which if left alone just dissolve without leaving a trace.
If we stop living our lives on the basis of thought, our minds naturally become quiet. And once the mind is quiet, an intrinsic wisdom and truth begins to present itself.
