Where does our inherent stillness and silence come from? It’s perhaps a silly question since it’s inherent in what we are, and yet it is a valid question. We are naturally curious, so it’s a natural question, and it can show us something we hadn’t seen before.
Ultimately, what we are is capacity for our world and all our experiences, and all of it is happening within and as what we are.
The oneness is a feature of this, as is the love that comes from oneness. Our field of experience includes anything “inside” and “outside” in a conventional sense, and it’s a seamless whole. Any boundaries come from our overlay of mental images and words. It’s one, it happens within and as us, and we are that oneness.
So where does the stillness & silence come from? It may be because what we are takes all the forms of our experiences. All our experiences have the same nature. In that sense, nothing is really happening while everything is also happening. It’s still while taking on all the forms of our experience.
When we notice this stillness and silence inherent in what we are, we can also more easily notice that any of our experiences are the same. Even our contractions have the same nature, they too are stillness and silence. And when we notice and rest with it, it allows the contraction to notice itself as stillness and silence, find deep rest in that, and unravel. (Especially if we also notice that the scary story within and creating the contraction is not aligned with reality.)
Where does our inherent stillness and silence come from?
Is part of what we are
All our experiences are what we are
Are not any more or less anything in particular
Is no movement as what we are, even when takes all the forms of our experiences
