Here is the final part of Cris’s interview with Almine. Enjoy!
In what way does this silence differ from the bliss of the yogi?
Almine: “If it were just bliss, the experience would be no different than the experience of the yogi on his mountaintop. It is not only that, but rippling waves of rapture and an indescribable knowing that nothing is ever lost, everything is here right now. This could be described as the flow of abundant fullness across the face of eternity.”
How can other people who have not yet experienced this feeling go about experiencing it? How can information about this experience be shared with others?
Almine: “Let’s call this bliss experience the Song of Silence, because when you’re in it, inner silence seems to swallow noise and discordance in your environment. The reason for this is that it dissolves boundaries between ‘inner’ and ‘outer’. To describe something that lies so far beyond normal experience to others, serves little purpose. But to live it in their presence untangles the sticky web of human desires, eventually setting them free through the surrendered life to experience it also. This warm feeling in the chest is kept by not asking questions. At-oneness can put an end to man creating disasters. When man discovers the source of his inspiration, life will change forever.”

Oh ,niels, is this sacred information available to everyone and how might it be described to someone who might ask about it.
Hahaha… by giving the website and letting them check it out for themselves…
What was it again? We are here to learn, not to purvey our own ideas of truth?
So, let them make up their own minds, and perhaps we can learn from each other’s perspectives!

‘When man discovers the source of his inspiration,life will change forever’ Am fascinated about the ‘Song of Silence’ and getting to know the power it has.Am working on ,working while silent.can you research for me about this idea of being able to do many things at once,like sing a song,paint a wall,compose a song,plan the family events.Can we do the physical stuff as well as the mental stuff,all at once.Would love to know more about all this as I’m rearing to go.
Thanks in anticipation,
Well, actually many of Almine’s teachings are geared towards achieving just that; taking the silence within the activity… combining the dinginess with the beingness.
I’d advise to take a look at the Ask Almine Anything 3 course, and the Poetic Perspective course, for more information about the Song of Self and the Song of Silence.
Perhaps this helps.
Soon we will have a more in-depth description of all the courses on sj.com, so it is more clear what courses from the past actually entails and thus if they are to your liking or of interest… so keep an eye out on spiritualjourneys.com.
