The foundation of The Non-Subscribing Church of What's Happening Now is the right kind of silence. The right kind of silence is the source of everything. The wrong kind of silence leads to the right kind of silence over time. Just be still sit quietly and wait to see and hear what needs to be heard and seen. As thoughts appear, moods arise, feelings stir... add them to your awareness without engaging any of it, in a "This too, this too," kind of way, and return to the stillness, sitting quietly, waiting, watching, seeing, hearing... The things that occur to you in the silence will organize themselves into categories. They will sort themselves out grouped according to their urgency and the quality of their power to attract/distract. Is it attraction or distraction? What is the nature of their urge to action? What is the nature of the action they urge? The questions raise the matter of the source and the end of our thoughts, moods, feelings... Seek the source in the silence. Get to the bottom of you. Joseph Campbell said, "It is the nature of reflection to lead to new realizations" (Or words to that effect). Curiosity and inquisitiveness lead the way. Ask the questions that beg to be asked. Say the things that cry out to be said. Investigate your own thoughts, feelings, moods... to see where the come from, where they are leading, and what they have to tell you about you.
