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.”
