Spiritual Information Overload (Get Unstuck)

By
Share

Give your mind and brain a break from learning and assimilating and gathering information.

It really needs it! (Trust me on this one, it really, really needs a break).

Instead be still, have some tea, take a long walk in nature and breathe in Life, look at the sunrise and sunset, and in between; Just Be.

Turn away from the world even for a moment

No Internet, no social media, no nothing – Nothing but your very own self, alone and in solitude.

Tomorrow is a new, fresh day and between your present moment, evening and morning a lot of things will happen in your consciousness as a result of having given yourself to the stillness even for a day.

Once you give yourself a break things has a chance to fall into place naturally and Life can finally get a breather when you stop forcing your way to understanding.

True, deep understanding comes from yielding to the stillness within you, not from books, MP3’s and lectures.

Do this and things will be much clearer for you tomorrow, I promise.

The feeling of relief is the sign for you that tells you that this is what your mind and brain needs, so listen to it.

    So true! Thank you for this! Recently, I’ve been sitting quietly, eyes closed, twice a day for 15 minutes. In the past I’ve always found this to be boring and long. But lately I find myself looking forward to it. And it’s not like my mind is blown or I’m having visions or spiritual experiences. It actually appears to be quite uneventful. But usually afterwards and sometimes during it feels like I’m smiling on the inside. And it goes a long way in my attitude and motivation.

    I love meditation too. Before I do anything else in the morning I always meditate and do Yoga (and sometimes in the afternoon too).

    It’s my sacred time in the morning and it’s wonderful to start the day in that way.

    So many people ask me all the time what to do (“what should I do, I have tried everything, nothing works”) and I tell them to stop doing anything for a while.

    Just stop cold turkey to consume more spiritual information, stop reading, stop listening, just stop.

    But most people don’t, they just keep seeking and searching for that one thing that they think will liberate them from their suffering and struggles.

    There comes a point when everything comes to a halt; when there is nothing, absolutely nothing more you can do, nothing but to surrender.

    Surrender to the stillness. Just sit with yourself. Be with yourself. Connect. Don’t say anything, stop asking. Just listen for once.

    Be completely open and receptive by letting everything go, asking for nothing.

    Take your hands off of everything.

    That’s the ultimate answer to all struggles and internal suffering but it can take a long time before someone finally gets this and surrenders to it, and that’s when the relief and liberation comes.

    Not a moment before 🙂

    It’s the stillness that is resisted, and who resists it? The seeking ego.

    For anyone having troubles surrendering to it, here’s a page with some of my articles about letting go into stillness:
