Be Still and Know that I am God

Posted by sibbia on November 6, 2007

It is said that these words from the basis to self-realization, simply be still and know that I am God.

 How many times today have you stilled your thoughts, your actions, your mind?  How many times have you stopped to realize there is a God?

I understand that for many the words “God” and “religion” have great negativity associated with them.  They want nothing to do with anything dealing with either.  They may consider themselves spiritual but, for many reasons, uncomfortable with the standard trappings of organized religions.

Conversely, you will find many deeply entrenched in their particular religious organization.  After years of the same view, studying the same material and nuturing the same ideas, their mindset becomes rather myopic and they develop the tendency to reject anything that’s not part of or promoted by their religious group.

What we need to have is the ability to really see for ourselves what is true.  To have access to wonderful, profound teachings, and a spiritual community to support us, while we learn for ourselves who and what God is, and as the result of this, who and what we are.

Practices, such as meditation, that allow this kind of inner knowing are free of ties to a particular religion.  They are interfaith and can be used by all.  After all, we were told simply, “Be still and know that I am God.”
