All such efforts produce at best a surface effect that is eventually undone and overwritten by the re-emergence of remaining deep programming that mind therapies cannot reach. Only Divine Consciousness can permanently reprogam mind ...
Until we awaken from our sleepwalking slumber party – the experience of life for many – we usually either indulge our judgements of other people as being right or wrong, good or bad (for example, acting them out through road rage and domestic violence), suppress them, or attempt to change and get rid of them.
Sri Ramana Maharshi said that he gave the location of the Heart in the right side of the physical chest for those who were still identified with their body. He was clear that in absolute reality our mutual One-Self cannot be located, limited, or confined to a single place in the body.
The core paradigm shift is from thinking that you are inside your body, to the felt knowing that your body is inside of you. This shift of perception is the truth that lies behind the old teaching story of "Before enlightenment chop wood, carry water; after enlightenment chop wood, carry water.
The Sacred Heart meditations are meditations that guide you into relaxing and resting into the feeling of Being ... which will bring about the fulfillment of all desire (wanting) and the end of poverty consciousness.
The principle of the "witness" (or observer) who is aware of the entire realm of human experience, is well-known in spiritual circles and the worlds of meditation and mindfulness.

Self-inquiry differs from all other meditations that I'm aware of because all the others require us to dedicate a period of time to their practice, need a quiet place, entail closing our eyes, and demand the removal of external distractions to be fully effective – or even able to be performed at all.
It seems to me that it's only the illusory "doer", or ego, that suffers. So when the notion of being the doer dissipates, through Self-inquiry, there is no-one left to suffer, which I believe is what Buddha pointed us to – the bliss of nirvana ...
The seed idea for this article came a few days ago when I was driving to Dartmoor, a place where I would very much love to live. So love and the power of manifestation was very much present when this insight arrived.

Self-inquiry first guides us to know who and what we truly are as pure I AM Consciousness, the silence of our mutual One Heart. When we devote ourselves to living from this Consciousness our lives unfold spontaneously, easefully and effortlessly in ways that are in the best interests of everyone and all life ...
I named this blog "Silent Wisdom" in honour of the silent, unfathomable, inexplicable knowing that resides in the Heart of us all as our mutual essence. Through personal sharing and stories I explore multiple facets of the diamond that is Heart-centred awareness.
