#69 From listening to observing
15 March 2023
There is in our way of meditating a particular order to things, a chronology, a gradual process orchestrated through verbal guidance. This term I am emphasizing this evolutionary process that unfolds from first listening, to observing, then feeling and finally using our capacity to imagine.
This meditation centres on the shift from listening to observing. It is in two parts: the first is about listening and its resulting experiencing, and the second is about observing. You may if you wish go directly to the second part of the meditation that begins at 23mns, though the first part is an introduction to the second one. The support we have used to develop the notion of observing is the visual sense, more precisely inner sight and the light that goes with it.
The roadmap we propose to conclude this meditation is intended as a way to put more colours in your life and to refrain from seeing life in black and white.
Wishing you a good meditation :
Listening to silence is the door into our inner sensing
Little by little, as the silence settles and we begin to listen to it, we become more present to ourself
We all have light within us
We all have the flame of a candle that lights our consciousness, our awareness
We all have a ray of sunshine that emanates from our heart
We all have blue sky above our clouds
We have to bring colour into our life and not live it in black in white
And it is colour that sheds light on our decision and shows us how we progress. It is easier to go forward with a light than total darkness.Danis Bois
