Words are an integral part of the current human condition. They can encourage, admonish, or cut like a knife. Yet when they are absent, we are taught to worry about it.
It’s common for most humans to lay their heads on the pillow with a mind full of chatter: what needs to be done tomorrow, someone we forgot to call, what we should have said to to the co-worker about his thoughtless comment this morning. Layer on top of that the repetitive final glances at things with screens, concerned we might miss an important message before we lay ourselves down to rest.
It’s no wonder that 25 million Americans suffer from sleep-related conditions. We can’t shut it off; but we sure try, with alcohol, sex, and pharmaceuticals.
But Earth’s population is waking up, and with that comes some changes to your brain’s thought patterns, including a reduction in the chatter that previously dominated your awareness.
The farther you travel on the path to awakening, the less hold that words will have on you.
Your inner thoughts will begin to shift to predominately images and concepts, because the two-dimensional aspect of most words will no longer be sufficient to describe what you’re feeling inside.
And there will come a day, when you wake up in the morning, and there are no words swimming through your head the minute your eyes open. Your mind can wake up refreshed, calm, and empty.
This can be a shocker for those of us who are so accustomed to the instant morning “on-button.” It’s easy to worry that something is wrong with you.
But guess what, Lightworker? It’s called peace, and believe it or not, it’s your natural state.
Our minds have been so habitually cluttered, that when we wake up with a calm one, we think that something has gone wrong.
Western society has been programmed to find a state of peace as flawed.
Depending on which reality you’re focusing on, you can thank the social programming that warns of imminent memory loss and deadly brain tumors.
Or, if you’re focusing on a higher level of creation—one in which you recognize your role as the creator of your reality—check the programs running through your head about words = action = accomplishment.
Can you imagine yourself waking up in the morning at peace, with an empty head, ready to create your day with a clean slate? Can you imagine a new state of being, in which your mind is not cluttered with endless words, lists and concerns that have little to do with your long-term growth?
It starts by understanding that silence is OK.
A calm mind is the normal state for the awakened individual.
It happens when you face the fears that keep peace at arm’s length, because the human ego is very frightened of the unknown. Fears are tricky; they are masters at crafting powerful potential catastrophic scenarios to keep you in the place of powerlessness. It’s when you face them head on that they, along with the accompanying words, lose their power over you.
So, Lightworker, nothing is wrong with you if you wake up with a calm mind. It’s the sign that your heart is winning over your head.
Let’s have a silent cheer for that accomplishment.
