One thing that I use to enjoy as a young (very) young man (12) was quietness….NO NOISE…. The lack of noise in my ears. I would close myself into a
closet and sound proof the door.
At 18.05479 I realized the ability to listen to nothing is an asset… it takes practice. When you try this you will get exasperated and need to
stimulate your ears with something…. You will say to yourself,” please let a ding from my e-mail, cell phone, PDA anything PLEASE!!! “
This is the minute time in your life that you have a chance to internally hear your brain, your existence, to hear God and dissect your thoughts into
a comprehension of your reality. It is the most important moment or moments of your day. This is not prayer. This is taking ownership of your
relativity. Coming face to face with who you are. This is “the listening” to your heart as the ancients would say.
I was thinking tonight when I had 45 seconds of quietness about this. Our ancestors had never dealt with that lack of quietness. There wasn’t the
sounds of whooshing cars, the overhead noise of planes, refrigerator fan noises, the constant beating of music or television, blue tooth or Wi-Fi
internet access, You Tube or Apple TV, cell phone I pads. The most noise they heard every night was the oxygen popping sounds of wood in the camp
fire, occasional horse poop falling, and birds, frogs and crickets.
Personally, after discovery, I sought out, for years this moment of quietness within the woods or oceans. I would go deep, immensely far from
civilization on the oceans to find this moment. Into the wilds, back packing deep into the Himalayas, into the Rocky Mountains and deep into West
Virginia five thousand miles from any human civilization. Into caves, scuba diving into the deep.
I remember standing in a field in the middle of Pennsylvania in the summer of 1984. I could see four miles in all directions but it was so quiet, that
my ears were ringing. No wind, no birds, no cars, no air planes …NO Noise. It was a naturally occurring nonessential reaction to nothingness. After
that I was Hooked
You start to understand your consciousness, your awareness, yourself…within this quietness. As a Christ Man this is a self-induced conflict.
You begin to hear other things beyond your thoughts. Wisdom that takes your thoughts and answers them. An intelligence that can answer your deepest
thoughts. It’s weird but right. I started to listen to this intelligence. Eventually It guided me in my decisions. (Points in my life that changed
I reacted to these new thoughts, an internal voice, by listening.. My first responses were always small, contrived and measured responses. The
response was at first just a mental acknowledgment of this existence of the interagency.
But within a few years it became the source of my guidance. I embraced it and sought it out for confirmation of my ideas and concepts. As a young man
it had guided me and I trusted its opinion over mine own. The key for me was being a Christian. These experiences were not based on feelings nor any
of my 5 senses. Realizing these were small and insignificant events in human history they are my confirmation of higher intelligence. This has been my
human connection experience up to now.
I don’t remember exactly the moment or time that I first discovered this secret (Perhaps it was Dec 25 1980), but it still has a hold on me. I’m
mature enough now to know that I can still find this quietness in an 45 second elevator ride. Maybe its an alien talking to me.
