Silence is golden: effects and aims
As children we learn very fast how to talk. That is simple. However, in order to really communicate with our heart, thus in a regardful, supportive and merciful manner, the learning will take at least 20 years; this is how Wei Ling Yi describes the teaching without words – a high form of cultivation. Mostly, we speak too much therefore we lose much energy and power. It weakens the strength of the heart, disperses our life energy and often we hurt ourselves and others with words. The more our awareness and wisdom will grow, the clearer we will see that it is better to speak less and be silent to acquire higher knowledge and grow holistically.
In this respect, the seminar without words is firstly a great opportunity to channel the energy by being silent back to our heart and soul so that they can be nourished and strengthened. “If the teacher does not talk, the students will have more intense, faster and better benefits”, says Wei Ling Yi. “We don’t speak, neither do we reply. Consequently we are able to uplift our mind and come closer to the cosmos. We get to know cosmic laws and the path of the soul and we can receive precious information and wisdom from the universe and make use of it on earth.”
In silence, we also deepen our connection with nature. Its secrets are revealed to us. We can be intensely in touch with nature to receive the nourishing essences of each season. The more our level of awareness will grow, the more powerful our connection to the universe will be so that we can receive cosmic information without any words. According to Wei Ling Yi, it is a state that cannot be put into words anymore. It is nothing but bliss, full of happiness, pure, still and without any intention. In this state, the personal level is meaningless. It is a higher state in peace, relaxation and lightness – simply luminous. In order to develop in this direction, silence is the best and only way.
The highest form of teaching that we can ever receive from our teacheris teaching without words.
