There is a magic that happens in the world when you stop to think about where you have come from… To where you are now.. and the unknown path to where you really want to be.
Love will eventually make its way into every heart that doesn’t commit emotional suicide. The most important thing to remember is that life is a series of painful events, fueling the fire of non-attachment. If we expect amazing events in this life, we must be willing to let it be what it wants to be. We cannot make it into our own little plaything, that will never work. Life is a tough teacher, it pulls no punches, it gives no shelter for many. Your karma is something you can never evade. What you do not face willingly, life will rub your face in, just to show you why you did such a thing in the first place. If you hurt yourself, then life will show you how to heal, but if you hurt another, life will usually just attack you.
Although hurting yourself is the greatest sin in many ways, it is also the most common. Self-destruction and self-flagellation are the tools of the dark side. If you are keeping yourself, prisoner, then who can really save you? If you have yourself chained inside of self-doubt and negative cycles, how are you to emerge victoriously? If you are going to fight to the death, life will be there to show you how rage can never solve itself. Rage only can be calmed by the purgation of all that was causing it in the other party. You conquer fear, rage, pain and all of these things with the inner silence. Silence can dispel anything, but nobody wants to admit that silence is powerful. They call it weak, they laugh at it.
But what can attack the silence? What can it not cure in the end? With silence, nothing is nothing, but nothing also could be everything, which is why in my estimation.
I would say that silence is akin to God or the Dao of whatever you want to term the baseline energies of life.
