My experience on a 30-day noble silence/Vipassana meditation course in Herefordshire, England
By Nabs Hadi
The Sufis, Yogis and saints from the past have all said “go within and you shall find the answers you’re looking for”
I truly believe that we have everything we need to know at the depth of our being. This becomes more and more apparent to me as I spend more time in silence and allowing myself to go deeply within, becoming aware of the creative energy that animates our being, to get closer to the “ocean of all knowledge” that exists in the depth of our inner most self. We are made of many layers and it is not an easy process to pass through each layer of our structure as it takes time, dedication and bravery. It is a journey that the “truth” answers to our enquiries and reveals itself in a unique way that is comprehensible to us.
My recent experience after completing another 30-day noble silence meditation was truly profound, so much happened during that period, most of which is not possible to share. First, because it would not make any sense even if I try to explain it, and second, it is my own journey which is sacred and personal. However, I am inspired to share with you a tiny fraction of what went on during that 30 day period in a hope that it will inspire you to take some time to sit and meditate in order to still the mind and go within, to connect with the light which exists within us all.
The incredible power of silence meditation can only be recognized when one practices it. After many years of regular practice and completing many courses I have become aware of an energy which I refer to as “The Creative Energy of The Great Spirit”. This creative energy is a force to be reckoned with. It is strong enough to break your bones and give you a real kick from within like a formidable tornado and gentle enough to stretch your flesh and give your skin a glow like the ray of sunshine.
