“There is a place inside me that is far more powerful than the continuous mental noise,” says Eckhart Tolle.
When I am able to go into my inner silence, an entire Universe seems to open up, and I am able to tap into the part of myself that is larger than what my limited mind can perceive.
Russell Brand asks, “Do you think that our capacity for knowledge, and Knowledge, is the same thing?”
We can literally experience the difference between them by observing the qualitative difference between the two states: when the mind chatters about versus when the mind surrenders into the silence of meditation.
The former leads us to limited thinking, filling our glass to the brim so nothing else could get in – the non-questioning I know it all because this is my experience of life thinking, and the latter leads us to a simultaneous state of I am all and nothing, where potentiality becomes limitless, the essence of Self emerges, time shifts and suffering becomes alleviated.
