To Manifest Anything, We Have to Be Internally Quiet

Updated on January 22, 2010

There are so many techniques that are offered us in order to manifest something, so many tools, and the most important of them all is internal silence.

In the silence you can hear the sound of creation. In many traditions, it is AUM, but it is not the sound that we hear when we buy a CD or a tape. There are many stages prior to one's hearing this sound. First, the buzzing of a bee and then a bird twittering, then the sound of a flute, a harp, a harpsichord, and finally, one day, one glorious day, the sound of creation. It is unmistakable because it is followed by profound peace, and just like anything else, it is only momentary. 

This is not to say that only the chanting of the mantra can bring us there. For the mystics, after passing through "the dark night of the soul" as St. John of the Cross had written beautifully, they did hear it as well.

I will only quote what is in the bible because it is what is readily available to me as I write this, and will not go into a discussion of a personal God. This concept of a personal God seems to be a subject of contention for centuries.

"John 1: 1-14

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."

The sound of creation is what we hear when the tumult of the mind is quieted.
In that space, there is no resistance, no memory of the past which holds us back. It is what we experience when we are so focused on what we are doing at the moment that we forget time. We get lost in time.

It is what we experience when we are in Samadhi, deep meditation but even deep meditation is not enough. The real aim of meditation is to create peace, moment by moment.

It is only when we are peaceful that we are connected to "What IS"

In this state, we are perfectly aligned with the universal creative mind, and like the computer in Star Trek, we can say "Computer, coffee with little cream and sugar" and the computer will make it for us, just as we like it.

      Dear DynamicsS,

      Than you for the comment. The easiest way to to do it is to allow the thoughts and then don't feed it any longer.

      How to not feed the thought is like this.

      While meditating you remember something that you forgot to get from the supermarket. The normal thought process would say "Well, I will get it later ...etc etc"

      To stop the thought you say "Oh I forgot to get something from the supermarket" and then continue to pay attention to your breath. No fighting, just allowing.

      Kindest regards,

      Melinda, thanks for such a deep post. I look forward to the time when I get to the stage of meditation that you are speaking of. While I am getting better at it, I still have to work on quieting my mind.

      Thank you, Universal Laws

      Namaste. Ram Dass in his "Journey of Awakening" talked about this. That in the quest for something, other than awakening we normally begin meditation but in the course of it we are tuned in to higher aspirations.

      Some people begin it to alleviate pain, some to gain power, some to gain material wealth and yet in the process, something inside truly awakens and we forget why we started it in the first place.

      Yes, Alex. It is what Mihály Csíkszentmihályi talks about in "Flow". Oh, no, on the contrary [smiles]reading and writing can take you there.

      What you are saying at one point is that one can reach this state by focusing on an activity, intensely, not just by meditating. This process of getting lost in time may be harder in the case of a mental activity such as writing or reading.

      A thought provoking hub anyway.
