When you succeed in creating a state of inner silence, peace and light, you are able to reach, for a moment at least, the regions of your soul and spirit that you have carried within you since the very beginning. Most human beings are not even aware of these regions that are so difficult to attain in everyday life. For, just as they are unaware of what goes on in their subconscious, they are also oblivious to what goes on up on high, in heaven, in their spirit, and in their divine consciousness.
For example, when you meditate on a spiritual question that you find difficult to solve, you go deep into yourself to seek an answer. After some time, enlightenment gradually emerges from this silence, and you receive an answer. What happened? Where does this comprehension come from? Your spirit knew the answer but your consciousness was not yet able to rise up that far, But now, far from the hustle and bustle, your thoughts can soar into space and you receive a revelation.
