The only thing we have to fear is losing ourselves to fear in the moment. The greatest thing we can hope for is to lose ourselves to Love.

From December 27th to January 7th one hundred of us were observing noble silence (complete silence with no physical contact with others, not even eye contact!; and of course no contact to the outside world) while practising meditation for the majority of each day while having the daily food consumption (vegetarian) finished by noon, with the exception of a couple of fruit and a cup of lemon tea at 5pm.
This may not sound like most people’s idea of a fun time, nor the best way to spend the holidays, nor even the most ideal way to ring in the new year – well, for this moose, it was perfect.

In this fast-paced, modern world of ours, oftentimes it is hard to find a minute to ourselves, and when we finally do have some alone time we tend to spend it getting lost in thought (usually unconsciously), be they thoughts about family, friends, work, health, food, until those precious few moments that we had are all but gone, and we are right back in the game of life again – going, doing, talking, watching, cooking, eating, sleeping.
It’s a funny old thing, life. Everyone knows everything, and at the same time, nobody knows nothing. Yet, for some strange and unknown reason, life goes on. Even with all of our conflicts, both internal and external, we have somehow managed to keep things going, for millenia (at least!).
The entire world has had to endure the endless suffering of Man, all while having to preserve and evolve itself in the constant process of growth and decay. Nobody truly knows the truth – how history really unravelled, how scenes actually played out, and who truly lost, and won.
There is only one thing we know for certain – that we know nothing for certain. The only reality that exists for any of us, is that which we perceive to be real. For example, before one people discovered another, the other did not exist. Reality is like a vast empty void which only comes into being upon enlightenment and awareness.
Even so, it is possible to engage and encapsulate the emtpiness, within the mind of Man, and to be that which is not. For it is only through experiencing the nothingness that we experience the all. The infinite. God. God is not some white bearded man sitting upon a golden throne above the clouds. Nay. God is everything. Even nothing. Especially nothing.
To consider the vastness of space and time is to be at one with Oneness. How else could one even fathom the thought, but by letting go of everything held close and dear. A speck of a speck of a speck on a speck in a speck within a speck of a speck is what we are. And yet still, each and every one of us operates from the center of Universe.
Universe – Singularity – Oneness – All.
With each and every moment that passes, we are offered a unique and irreversible opportunity to know Self. No matter what, remember always, we are One.
