MINDFULLY RECEPTIVE

The silent receptivity of the heart is
the point of contact with Divine Being.
From this center, every point is the One Point.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been experimenting with my mind-calming mantra for slowing and softening the mind. These particular words are inherently contemplative in nature, increasing their ability to induce a tranquil state of quietude that is powerfully restorative.

And, each pair of words spoken inwardly, with a goodly pause between the next pair, allows the mind to mirror the quality of unruffled waters—creating a perfect reflection of the Big Sky above. The little you and the Big You merge.

You will find that the pace of the words slows itself. The rhythm of your breath will gently slow down, as well. The psyche and all systems of the body become unhurried, at ease, and return to their natural state of trust. Spiritual listening—opening the inner ear to the Godly Voice—is heightened. We let go the mental realm of thoughts and words, rising higher in consciousness to abide in the holy realm of Truth.

This mantra works well when a brief, mental break is needed or when lying down for a nap, letting all thoughts and outer activities drift away down the river. As a prelude to meditation, I find this mantra to be a superb entry point for shifting into deepest peace.

Give it a test, and see if it works for you. The more you practice the mantra, as a preliminary lead-in to a more leisurely pace, the quicker the outer mind loosens and the sense of harmony arises. Within you, a renewed, more finely attuned consciousness awakens. This mindful receptivity will become a rooted, living part of your being—a true embodiment of your Self. Your inner state of harmony will dramatically change your outer life.

Here are the words for the mantra:

Relaxing mind.
Resting mind.
Quiet mind.
Serene mind.
Still mind.
Silent mind.
Spacious mind.
Receptive mind.
Trusting mind.
Heavenly mind.
One mind.

Bliss-full harmony.
Love enfolded.
