If we take a moment to observe the Present Moment whatever we observe, whether it be an internal object – such as breathing – or an external object – such as stars – sooner or later we will come to the realisation that everything is cyclical.
Many times we have heard of silence and meditation, without really noticing how a powerful tool they are. If we come together in the natural flow of existence, we will connect with the need to come to life and face our challenges to grow as humans, while a yearning awakes to travel deeper within ourselves to simply “be”.
Today, the frenetic rhythm that has taken over our lives, hinders the possibility of finding those moments of introspection where “doing” is replaced by “Being”. Even when going on vacations, we jump from one activity to another, fuelled by a mind eager to live in the past or the future. This makes it difficult for us to feel that we already are in the Now.
Silence and meditation retreats are an oasis in the desert. A place where you don’t have to play the game of pretending being someone else. A place where the defensive strategies of your character may surrender, your breath slow down, the mind will clear, and your body will reorganize.
They are not a miracle. Although many people come to them expecting it to be the panacea that will solve all their problems through observing the present moment. Those who have the habit of going on retreats know that the inner path has no goal and that the spiral of life never ceases. And when one comes to this sense, he has experienced, brushed, glimpsed, stroked the ineffable, the infinite, the ubiquitous …
When this experience is felt, the certainty that there is something beyond, even if only for a thousandth of a second, a crack opens in the darkness. It is only a matter of time for this feeling to grow in you, enlarging, if we allow for things to take its natural course. Rigidity will cost us so much effort that our energy will burn out.
The light that enters through this gap will illuminate aspects of our “I” hidden in the shadows. It’s like giving birth in a wine cellar that you haven’t visited in years. You will find dirt, dust, rats … but also wines of the highest quality that will delight your palate and treasures that your ancestors kept for you. This is one of the magic of silence and meditation.
Lights and shadows of who you really are and who you think you are. Ghosts and guardian angels.
The heroic journey of every individual in which he must know himself in depth, without illusion or deception, without rejection or attachement to anything.
Yet, in order to make the most important trip of your life, you must remain available, attentive and present.
In addition to providing the right scenario for the connection between who you think you are and what you really are, retreats are a call to a group connection. This journey being only yours, the energy that comes from meeting several people with the same purpose through silence and meditation can enhance this process.
The magic that comes from each silent encounter brings the opportunity to meet ourselves from a place other than the usual talk, from a deeper place where intuition, subtlety and openness inhabit.
Retreats are, have been and will be, the option of those who do not want to get lost in the superfluous and go for what always Is.
