Number One Hundred and Two

Accessing deep wisdom, gathered over many lifetimes, is a spiritual skill.  It involves listening to atman -- the part of our soul that remains in the spirit world during each incarnation.  Each choice -- even early in life -- is made either by listening or not listening.

Listening starts with waiting, and not acting.  Waiting for the impulse -- whatever it is -- to pass.  Waiting to see what lies behind each drive -- the fear or the desire.  At the moment of impulse, we access atman by entering the quiet place, the wise place.  Letting the feeling rise and fall.  Listening for the whisper of what we have always known.
