Jesus said "Be Still and Know that I am God. I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth" ( Psalm 46:10).
To be still is the way to know God. Mind is in a state of mess. Mind keeps chattering. Ceazelessly thoughts outpour. When we operate from the center of witness consciousness in us, we know that "I am" is God. That deep stillness is called Sakshi Bhava. Witness consciousness belongs to pure awareness. The moment we start witnessing our thoughts, neigher accepting or rejecting we move to a center of deep stillness. Lifes goal is achieved. Lord is found in the heart.
