Meditation-the Art of Being Silent

woman meditatingOnce upon a time I stumbled across an excellent article on meditation –or what I call the art of being silent. The article was on the web and should still be available. The article went into great detail about meditation –what it is and isn’t, how to practice it and the many types of meditation available.

Like I said –good article and I recommend you doing some research on this topic. Because if you want a true spiritual practice—getting in touch with your own inner being so you can connect with your internal wisdom and that wisdom that comes from a Higher Place–you’re going to need to get still enough and quiet enough to be able to connect to that space.

This is what meditation is helpful towards –shutting off that incisive noise machine in your head. You know the one I mean—the noisy chatter that isn’t particularly productive and even sometimes very bothersome. That judgmental, critical side of you or simply the rambling laundry list of thoughts and woulda, coulda, shoulda’s in your world that can tirelessly go on in your head, day after day.
One of my friends calls this harsh noise the Itty Bitty Shitty Committee. Call it that or simply annoying –it’s time to shut it down or at least turn down the volume when it no longer serves you. Because there are times that the IBS Committee can be helpful….although I suspect then the “S” would turn into an “H” –for Helpful. Which would make it the Itty Bitty Helpful Committee –it still kinda rhymes, but doesn’t quite have the impact or humor that IBSC does.

So how do you turn the volume down? How do you get quiet? How do you shut down the noise?

The answer of course is meditation. It does take time and practice to turn the volume down—but it is so worth it! Once the noise and chatter are down to a dim roar, you have time to really open up—get in touch with your true inner being and even can begin to gain true divine guidance.

It starts with learning how to silence the noise; it starts with learning how to practice meditation.

  1. Wow, the IBSC just got out-ed on Feb 28th, 2013! What a day to remember for all- sharing such a grand awareness of how all these recordings from our past and others have dominated our thoughts. Worse yet, we have allowed them to. Hopefully some of your readers will take this to heart and actually begin to minimize their IBSC and allow themselves to find their authentic voice.

    I found that when I have expressed my authentic voice to many who I had long standing relationships with, well, they didn’t like it so much that I was beginning to express a new and different way of being. I get that for some people change is really difficult. I know that the closer I get to my own “True North” my little heart-light shines brighter and with my daily prayer and meditation practice I am being more joy-filled each and every day! I wish the same for all… Thanks for presenting such a useful tool for everyone!

    1. Dear Rev Maggie–thank you as always for sharing such wonderful wisdom! The phrase of IBSC came to me through our own circle, but through other sources as well and it certainly is an appropriate phase for those clammering egotistical thoughts that can go on for decades.

      Each of us must come to grips with the internal noise we find and that may lead astray from our true path. It may take effort as you and I both know, but it is so worth it in the end.

      Again, thanks for the input!!
