The whole man enjoys both the outer and the inner dimension of life. Is the outer important in your life? Yes, it definitely is. You need money, a home, cars, food etc. You need social success and achievements to realize your personal power and abilities. But is it enough to live a full realized life?
At the time of the growing speed of your life, are you able to listen to yourself? In this permanent run after the different objects of your desires, can you listen to the whisper of your intrinsic self? As for me, if the inner world, inner reality is not important, life becomes mechanical. The playfulness of life has been lost. The dance of life has been lost. When you spend all the energy only outwards, then no energy remains to go inside and find yourself.
You can stop this run for a moment. Step aside and watch your life… You just need a bit of watchfulness to realize what I am talking about. The art of watching does not depend on the object. Start from small things in your life. Can you listen to the song of a river? Can you listen to the melody of the wind passing through the trees? Are you too busy to enjoy the play of sea waves? The waves come in and out… The waves come in and out… Are you able to wonder at the silver circle of the Moon in the sky? Do you feel this miraculous interdependence of you and nature? Just one glimpse of this miraculous revelation is enough. In this affinity you never become the same. You obtain something new. You obtain something essential. You meet your authentic self.
And don’t even try to logically understand this experience. Don’t even try to reduce this experience to mundane words and explanations. The mind is simply not capable of realizing this mystery. Instead of thinking and intellectualizing, dive into this divine atmosphere of aloneness and, at the same time, of the fullness of life. The music of the language of silence flows exactly into your heart. Only your heart is capable of listening to this melody. This feeling can be expressed in dance. It can be expressed in love. It can be expressed in laughter.
You can dive on the wave of silence deeper and deeper into yourself. Become the silent watcher… Dive into this silence. Be total with this silence. And suddenly you become this silence itself. You become this peace itself. You become this relaxation itself.
And when you realize the inner, why even choose between the inner and the outer worlds? As far as I am concerned, only in the togetherness of the inner and the outer dimension, life blossoms with all the flowers. Why not enjoy both worlds and both dimensions together? Energy has to move, and this flow requires two different poles. The whole man is neither only the centre nor the periphery, neither only the inner not the outer. The whole man is both worlds simultaneously. The whole man is both dimensions together. In the dance of both dimensions life becomes realized, enriched and fulfilled. Be the whole man as you are intended to be! Enjoy the abundance of both worlds!
