The Power of Silence

One of my friends asked me once what it means to worship God. The worship experience consists of the communication between you and your Higher Self; then your Higher Self attempts to communicate with the divine Father the inexpressible longings of your human soul — the combining creation of the God-seeking mortal mind and the God-revealing immortal Self. Worship is, therefore, the act of the material mind’s assenting to the attempt of its spiritualizing self, under the guidance of the associated spirit, to communicate with God as a faithful son of the Universal Father. The divine Higher Self presence conducts such worship on behalf of the mortal mind and the evolving immortal soul. Basically, true worship becomes an experience that brings together the consciousness of mind, soul and spirit, and their unification in personality.

Recently I experienced true worship. The darkroom retreat in Tao Garden with Jasmuheen brought me to this development of my spiritual life.

I heard a lot about Prana Divine Nutrition. Jasmuheen brought us this system and we can see, sense and feel already the expanding consciousness among humanity on Earth.

It is important to understand that the idea of prana as nourishment has been around since the dawn of time. Universal Mind and its Akashic records, share that there was a time where all beings were sustained by pranic forces. Pranic nourishment is the ability to attract and then absorb all the nutrients, vitamins and nourishment one requires, to maintain health from the universal life force, a force which is also termed cosmic particles or chi energy. A person who practices this does not need to obtain nourishment from physical food. They also find that by increasing the pranic flow through their bodies they are fed not just physically, but also emotionally, mentally and spiritually due to the nature of the pranic flow.

The experience in the darkroom is remarkable. It is not just the pranic nourishment that keeps you in good shape for nine days and nine nights in complete darkness. It is more than that. There you can really see, sense and feel the experience of the Yogi’s Cave.

I loved the way that strangers came from all over the world to live together in this darkroom space and gel and blend and bond to finally come to that unified rhythm of heart and mind. The elimination of our vision opened us all up to connect in so many different ways; as the days passed our ability to glide noiselessly through this living space improved dramatically. Obviously, our brains shifted the production levels of serotonin and melatonin in order to enhance our inner visionary capacities.

As our Earth transcends and moves herself into more intergalactic frequency patterns, this also means that time is presented differently now and linear time flows are becoming more sequential. Time in the darkroom also seems altered and is subject to change by each individual. Here time speeds up for some, making their days pass quickly, yet slows down for others who have still not fully surrendered into the now.

The power of silence gives you power to step back into another level of yourself again. The quieter you become, the more you discover about yourself.

In every darkroom retreat there is always least one ‘knock your socks off’ profound type meditation. For this retreat it came when we visited and listened to the Galactic Council of Elders, and we listened to Mother Mary, speaking through Jasmuheen.

The last day had something special: we went out into the sunset after nine days and nine nights in darkness. Our faces and eyes were filled with appreciation at the wonder of nature, for the Tao Garden is truly beautiful. The colors had another meaning for us. We saw Mother Earth through the eyes of a child seeing a butterfly for the first time. All of us were quietly looking around and feeling Mother Earth’s energy.

The group was making the alignments necessary to accommodate the new light and energy from “outside”. We were in the dark for the past nine days and were in deep levels of our Zen-master selves, aware of every impact our movements made on the energy field. Tuned to furniture and objects, we noiselessly existed there as one cohesive unit but now we needed to begin to readjust our own impact on these energy fields. Still, all of this was natural, and something we deal with everyday when we expand our conscious awareness into the global energy field flows.

We emerged back into the light to enjoy once more all that the light contains; the pleasure of vision and for some the flavor and texture of food. We returned to our loving, and sometimes concerned, families and friends who could not comprehend why anyone would want to spend this time fasting in silence and solitude in the dark. Yet each being’s path is different, unique for what their heart call requires. And, as Jasmuheen said, in the following of our true heart’s call, our life becomes a dream fulfilled, and that offers us new adventures. So it is and so it always has been!
