Inquiring Into Stillness (Committed to know the Truth)

Lets pretend that you were out walking by the lake, and suddenly you met God and he asked you what you really, really wanted, what would your reply be?

Really think about this. What do you really want?

This is very revealing – it reveals to you what is most important to you, what you are potentially truly devoted and committed to.

I say potentially, because it depends on your commitment to be true to yourself – if you merely pay lip-service or if you are truly honest and sincere with yourself.

Sometimes people say that they are committed to that which they say is most important to them, but their actions show differently and the truth remains that what we actually do is what is most important to us, not what we say it is.

To inquire into stillness requires that we take some time off of everything, from all distractions and noise of the world, and when we do, the mental noise can be even stronger because the mind resists stillness and self-inquiry.

In the process there will be a change of will, or power if you will, from the persons wishes and wants (personal will), to the will of God (which we in essence are), and the conditioned “I” is not going to give up it’s (imagined) control easily!

One could look at it this way:

There’s a personal “I”, and there’s a universal “I”, and the personal “I” is the conditioned self with a story: “I am this, I am that, I want this, I don’t want that” and so on. It is full of opinions and it thinks it knows what Life is and what is best. 

The universal “I” is the Heart, or Intuition. It’s the same thing.

So when the driving power in our life changes so to speak, and we move from the person with it’s own wishes and wants (will) to the will of God (the intuitive heart-centered self) the false self (the person we have been conditioned into believing we are) is going to put up a fight.

In the process the ego will be burned up by Grace, and we go through all kinds of processes; ego death, dark night of the soul and what not.

This process can be fierce to say the least. Lots of stuff will come up, not to be healed or fixed, but cleared out by Grace. The false will be removed. 

  • Feelings of anger, arrogance, irritation, resentment and fed-up-ness will come up, as well as deep sadness, hopelessness and despair, .. confusion, disorientation, .. 

There will be times when you feel judgmental and impatient with others, very so called “un-spiritual” behaviors and attitudes will present themselves 🙂 

Many emotions and feelings will come up. Let them come up and let Grace do the work and clear those emotions away.

It’s not your job, this is not something you can do or chose to do, it’s purely Grace.

The ‘you’ who you thought you were is the one that is being cleared out, and sometimes when in the middle of one of these grinding of the ego-processes you can become very unpredictable in the eyes of others, some will even think you’ve gone slightly mad or crazy (and you will also see the insanity of the world even clearer), and it’s important to express – if only for yourself – those things as well.

It’s actually vital.

You must allow yourself to be to be irritable and erratic if that’s what you are.

It’s more important to be true than to be nice.

It is a good idea to take some time off of everything though and spend some time alone when it’s at the worst. When you’re ready for the world again, Grace will guide you into the world again. 

Gradually the forces will stabilize and settle down, and if you’re truly committed to let yourself be done, the more inclined you will be to continue inquiring within, regardless of how challenging and difficult the processes may be to go through.

They will all pass faster if they are allowed to happen. 

If what you truly want is the Truth and nothing but the Truth, then know that the Truth shall set you free, not you, you are not the doer here, God is.

If the higher desire is Truth then you will come to realize that the “I” is not true, it’s a lie, and that is what you become free from.

The spiritual awakening is not for the person, it’s from the person – and into God-consciousness, and what Truth also will reveal is the truth of who you are not. 

Can you remain quiet enough to not only inquire within into the stillness, but also to hear the calling of the heart that will show you what it real and what is not?

Can you let the intuitive knowing that leads you to the quiet and still place within direct you and show you the light that you are in reality?

What the ego resists and fears the most is that stillness; are you willing to go there anyway? 

Let me ask you again, what would your reply be to God if you met him today and he asked you what you really want?

Do you want what the little self want, or do you want the Truth?

If Truth is what your highest desire is, then be still and ask yourself “Who am I” and prepare to also be shown who you are not – and trust that the same power who has guided you to this point is also the same power that holds all of this.

All of it.

If you want to see a real shift not just psychological but spiritual shift, then Maria is the lady to see. I am so glad I found you!

– Sophie P

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

During and after our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

– A.

I’ve never had a conversation like that before

I just wanted to say thank you so much again for our session yesterday, I’ve never had a conversation like that before and it was truly amazing. I could feel weight lifted as we were talking and for the first time my mind did not try to make sense of things, it was all truly felt in the heart space.

Val, Melbourne, Australia

This journey with you has been amazing

Words cannot fully express the profound impact of my session with you – it has been nothing short of magical. You helped me remove the blockages that held me back, helped me recognize my true worth, and providing so much insight that has been truly life-changing!

— Sarah K.

Could not more highly recommend

Maria is the real deal. You will sense it the moment you lay eyes on her. She offered much, much more than I’ve derived from other teachers; highly specific and personal recommendations. It is as though I got a crash graduate course from spirit. Could not more highly recommend!

Catherine Rondeau, Westport, Connecticut, USA

Now I know what is creating my reality

I’m overflowing with gratitude and joy! Life has changed dramatically for me after our time together. I have truly realized on a fundamental level what is creating my reality and it has given me confidence for the first time in my life to finally be ME, I feel liberated to be my authentic self!

— J. Carlson

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless. Maria is beyond amazing. Had I not experienced it myself, I would probably not believe it. I recommend anyone who is trying hard to be truly free and really start walking down the path of self fulfillment and happiness to book a session with her.

The whole session felt as if it was operating on another level

If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. It’s hard to explain, the whole session felt as if it was operating on another level. I’ve never had that kind of experience before. It just felt so much bigger than I anticipated. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

– Lisa, USA

Beyond grateful for the transformational journey we shared

Maria, I am beyond grateful for the transformational journey we shared. it was nothing less than a miracle that has allowed me come into who I really am. I wake up every morning with a big smile on my face, feeling immense gratitude for just being alive, I can’t explain it, I´m just enjoying this fully. Your guidance has so profoundly changed my life, and I cannot thank you enough.

— R. Los Angeles, USA

You are truly a gift to us all!

I can’t even begin to express how much I have gained internally after my session with you. You have been an instrument of peace in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
