Created Noise

The noise in the head won’t subside on its own whether there’s a belief in a God or not. Beliefs hinder the mind’s settling because they are created blocks to our inward presence.

If the noise in the head is in control and running ones life, it doesn’t matter much whats going on, it is going to be difficult to be in a place of peace. It is such a noisy world and what makes it so is most people are looking for an answer out there when the answer is within. So what the noise actually is and how its created is by one not being aware that they already has their answers, but with a mind thats conditioned to want answers, you have to constantly look for them, hence the noise. This is how the agitation of a Conditioned Mind is formed and how it blocks awareness to our inward presence. It is the noise created, because if one knew they had the answers the need to look for them would be non existent and so would the noise.

When and if you come to the place where you understand this, the noise may not stop completely, but it will begin the process of at least subsiding. It is imperative to understand this if ones inward presence is to be experienced in their life. If this isn’t understood, the noise will never stop, at least while one is alive. This is why is so important to understand this now. Why wait to be at peace later when you can be at peace right now. It’s not like the noise is needed to live life, its only there because one unconsciously puts it there. 

Everyone has the ability to consciously allow for the removal of the noise in the head, if practiced properly. Its just not something that’s going to happen on its owns. But isn’t it beautiful that peace is in ones hands and it is totally up to each individual how much peace is brought into life. A little practice equates to a little peace. This is a direct exertion of our free will. If one believes in God it won’t happen on its own and if one doesn’t believe in God it won’t happen on its own. So either way it is up to the individual to do what is necessary to stop the noise, so as one practices it subsides and what one is left with is an inward presence. If you are waiting for anything else, you will be waiting a very long time and it will probably not happen while you are alive.

I grew up in Newark, New Jersey, one of six children. I have been married for 25 years. I own a home, and I have two children. I have been at the same job for 28 years. I am the happiest I have ever been and it is all because of the Love that has always been in my life. I attribute all that has happened to me to that Love. None of what has transpired in the last five years of my life has anything to do with any accomplishments on my part. There was always a lot of love in our home as I grew up, but for reasons unknown to me at the time I was always in trouble. I was at the top of my brother-in-law’s “Who My Sister Shouldn’t Marry” list. I drank alcoholically, gambled, abused drugs and painkillers. I bounced from relationship to relationship. Even after I stopped abusing alcohol and drugs in 1987, my so-called outer troubles stopped, but my self-centered behavior never changed. All I did was substitute one compulsion for another. Although my addiction became more respectable—taking the form of material possessions—I was still trapped, migrating restlessly from one obsession to another. I went to Twelve Step meetings, derived some benefit from them, and then fell away. My loved ones got me into de-tox and rehab programs. But once I was released, the cycle of insatiable craving started all over again. This cycle seemed to work for me . . . until it didn’t. And then my life changed — not instantly or magically, but profoundly. I share this change in It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts. I discovered that I wasn’t dependent upon a substance or activity, but ruled by my ego. My need to reach outside myself for fulfillment was created by a false perception of deficiency. If this sense of lack didn’t exist in me, there wouldn’t have been a need to reach and grasp. My credentials for writing this book are simply that I live this change each day. My view of life is so different from the way it used to be. Through the practice outlined in my book, I have learned to quiet my mind enough to allow my heart to open. The quieter my mind becomes, the more Love becomes the default setting of my life. This is truly a modern-day miracle, a miracle that can happen to anyone who has the urge to change.
