Deep Listening

© Robert Rabbin

The following is one in an ongoing series of columns entitled Echoes of Silence by Robert Rabbin . View all columns in series

To realize the highest truth, we have nothing more to do than what we are doing now—loving Silence and allowing what is within us to reveal itself, allowing what is true within to reveal itself, allowing what is real within to reveal itself. We have only to get used to this feeling of Silence, as the feeling of our true Self. The feeling of a burden, the feeling of disappointment, of pain, of loneliness, of unfulfilled desire, of one problem or another...this is not the feeling of the true Self. This feeling now—this one of peace and depth and beauty and joy and simplicity—is what we feel like, what we look like, what we sound like when we simply allow the truth that is within us to emerge.

This moment is the beginning of the true fulfillment. This moment is the beginning of truth. This is Silence, simplicity, and clarity, which have the power to consume doubt, self-rejection, judgement, all of the lesser and false faces that we often think we are, when in actual fact those are the false faces. Sitting silently and simply, neither leaning to the left nor leaning to the right, neither looking into the past nor anticipating the future, but simply sitting here, being present, listening deeply reveals our true face.

If we can learn to recognize this feeling as truth, when the onslaught of thoughts comes back, when the busyness of our lives returns, when the demands and pressures of living come back, we will never mistake those for our truth, because this simple truth of Silence is larger than any condition, any circumstance, any demand or pressure of living. Those are passing clouds in the sky of this Silence, this truth, this glory.
