Intuition, the silent knowing of the heart, is a way in which we may perceive the spiritual realm. Silence of mind invites intuition.
When the “I” is quiet, then Silence “speaks.” Silence is not the “I.” Silence is beyond thought and everything we think we are.
When thought is still, or in the space between thoughts, the heart senses Silence extending infinitely inward as well as outward beyond the confines of self. Then one realizes Silence is Consciousness itself—and is everywhere!
