Why do people sometimes experience profound sudden epiphanies in moments of inner quietude? Because Silence is All-Knowing. And what would happen if we were to stop thinking and conceptualizing altogether? Yep, you guessed it... Pure Formless All-Knowing Awareness would shine forth.
But that would mean that the intellect is a huge limitation. It would mean that all knowledge is redundant. It would mean that words and thoughts are worthless. It would mean that opinions, beliefs, views, and perceptions are pointless.
Are we able to accept that? For All-Knowing Awareness, one has to.
Silence of mind is peace of mind. Zen is not thinking about anything.
Silence is all-knowing. Ignore the mind and awaken.
"There is absolutely nothing in ordinary human experience to compare with the joy of the presence of the Love of God. No sacrifice is too great nor effort too much in order to realize that Presence." - David Hawkins
