(James de Lima, a student of Rational Culture – Feira de Santana, BA)
Silence is not when you cease to speak.
Even if your lips are tightly locked it is not yet silence. Your thoughts continue to talk. Silence is when you cease your thoughts. Better still…
Silence is when the thoughts are balanced.
When the thoughts appear to flow on a plain surface, serene, without obstacles, without blockages, without judgments, without equations, without doubts.
It is when someone manages to feel the present moment here and now.
When someone attains this, thought transforms itself into Reasoning, turbulence undoes itself, peace comes and agony goes away replaced by the ecstasy of the meeting with oneself.
For this silence means God. Means pure Reason. Means pure love.
It is this silence that will make you feel the true life where all the lives that live in our enchanted world came from.
Observe that when you look at a plant and think about it, you already do not see it, you only see your ideas, your fears, your concepts, your prejudices.
But when you are able to look at a plant and remain in silence, then you will see the plant as it really is.
As a consequence something incredible will happen.
You will go on harmonizing with it in such a way that you will no longer be you and a silly plant. Both of you will be one sole being, one sole vibration, one sole world.
Feeling that, you will notice that that sentiment will expand itself, encompassing all the other surrounding forms of life. Towards the other surrounding vegetal, towards the surrounding animals, towards all the surrounding Earth.
This sentiment of union and harmony coming from your silence will go on expanding itself towards the whole Universe until the point where you will feel and see that all that (you, the plant, the animals, the vegetal, the water, the Earth, the stars, the moon and the sun) came from one sole place, that everyone is from one same family, everyone brothers of one sole Father.
Then, you will also find answers for many questions that for the majority appear to have no solution. One see, for example, persons many times from the same family in violent confrontations; we also see great friends becoming mortal enemies; we see so nice people acting like monsters from one moment to the other.
Upon living this silence, one will see that it is the lack of that union sensation with everything that causes such conflicts, such tragedies.
The incapacity of finding silence is one of the causes for the existence of so many pains in the world.
The reading of this book will help to find this silence inside yourself.
The matters contained in this book will balance your thought. Will balance the energies that rule your thought.
They will develop in yourself the capacity to find the silence capable to cause you to enter into perfect harmony with yourself, with God and with life’s totality.
Then, read this book; the Book UNIVERSE IN DISENCHANTMAENT: have a plain life, a Rational life and be happy.
