Start Taking Conscious Pauses

posted by Guy Finley

Make it your personal aim to take as many (small) conscious pauses each day as you can remind yourself to do. These moments of reordering your priorities need not (should not!) be grand acts. Merely stop the parading thoughts and feelings for a short spell and recall that were it not for the existence of an interior changeless ground there would be nothing moving anywhere.

By remembering what is changeless, timeless — in becoming aware of this feature within you through your awareness of it — you touch it and it you. Give no thought as to the efficacy of this action, for the self that pauses in this way is the front-runner of the Intelligence it calls to. And though the changeless is timeless, true transformation requires a passage. Be patient. Be persistent.

In some time you will see that your actions of taking conscious pauses to remember yourself and God are the seeds of a special kind of vine that produces a unique fruit. Gradually you will cease to be “you” and realize that who you really are has always been right within you, and that more than this you could not wish to be.

The Music of the Mind
The music of the mind -- its harmony, or not, is expressed by the order of its thoughts through which it is instrumented. Confusion is dissonance; clarity is flow.
