I took the Silva Method course many years ago. It’s cool to find that there are so many paths to the same destination. Here is Jose Silva talking about “Communication with Higher Intelligence,” this last term signifying our higher selves, guardians, God, etc. however you understand he, she or it – whoever put us here.
Jose thinks we’re here for a reason, and that reason is to help correct problems. What problems you ask? I have referred to the cause of these problems as the ending of the Golden Age due to some cataclysm in our remote past. We have each come here to help set things right in some way that is unique for each one of us.
What Jose asks is that we each go deep inside and ask what our purpose is at this time. No one can give you this answer. That’s the difference between religion and spirituality: Religion is what others do for you. Spirituality is what you do for yourself.
In the modern vernacular, spirituality is an Occupy Yourself movement. We each go inside deeply enough to hear that still, small voice that is our inner wisdom – a task each of us must do for ourselves. To do this, we must achieve a state of inner stillness. There can be no outer “religions,” distractions, negative emotions that drag us into themselves. We have to take the time to “Go into the stillness” as Myrtle Fillmore used to say.
