In meditation, you connect to the experience of silence in which both the mind and the heart are calmed. The mental chatter or noise stops. A gentle flow of slow, clear, transparent and peaceful thoughts is produced. The organs of the body and its senses are calmed, and your emotions become pure.
In this state, you can listen to the voice of your conscience, the voice that guides you. You can also awaken the divine intuition. On listening to that voice, you are strengthened. In this way, you start to align your life with your purpose, with what you really want.
You begin to have more determination to carry out the things that you really want to do, without any fear preventing it. With meditation, you learn to love the silence: a tender, beautiful and sweet silence. With the experience of the sweet silence, you try to talk less, to speak with sweetness and gentleness.
When you generate the love and pleasure in going to the silence, it helps you express the best of yourself. To help others, sometimes it is better not to speak, not to use words; because you can use the vibration of your thoughts and good feelings that emerge from that state of silence.
In this state, you will enter the hearts that are trapped in darkness. Those hearts that are in darkness, have lost hope; they are hurt, wounded and discouraged. From your silence you transmit to them the light with which they can find a way out. To receive it, they have to be willing.
But, if their time has not yet come, at least they will know that there are people willing to help from a silence that does not judge and complain: A silence that accepts, appreciates and loves, generating an atmosphere in which one can be their own self and feel free to change at his/her own speed, with understanding and love and without feeling forced.
