Many people cannot understand the workings of energy. This is particularly true when it is a Spiritual energy. In the third dimension energy is very dense. It is very thick and full of mass; therefore, those who are residing in the third dimension expect everything to be dense and obvious.
The problem with this is that when something of a Spiritual nature occurs, they do not notice it. This is because Spiritual energy is much more subtle. It is much softer and quieter. The bible says, “Be still and know that I am God.” This is because God/The Creator/Source/The Universe is a Spiritual energy and is very subtle. One must still the mind and the emotions to be aware of it. This does not mean that third dimensional energy is stronger than Spiritual energy. Actually, the opposite is true.
I think that the year 2012 is a very good example of this. There was talk about something very big about happen around December 21 of that year. People waited for a huge occurrence. When there was no huge occurrence, they were disappointed and decided it was all a lie or a mistake. This very far from the the truth because something big did happen. The problem was that it was all of a Spiritual nature and very subtle, yet it was very big!
Many times, when people are told that a big Spiritual event is about to occur in a Universal, global or personal way, they have a preconceived idea of how it should happen. When it does not happen as they thought, they become very upset. This is very grand thinking and is very upsetting to yourself and others. We need to understand that Spirit does not think the same as those who are incarnated. Once we incarnate, our memory is wiped clean and our thought process is much different. Therefore, when an event is said to about to occur, it may be much different that what the human mind is considering. You need to be very open minded in order to be able to deal with things such as these.
An occurrence such as this must be felt more than seen. It must be felt by one’s Spirit and not physical body. This is why meditation is so important. Meditation quiets the mind and the emotions so that you can be in touch with The Creator, your Spirit Guides and your Higher Self. These are very powerful, yet subtle energies and you must be calm of mind and body to hear them.
Being still is the only way to know and hear The Creator/God/Source/The Universe. This is what that verse means. This verse, in actuality is promoting meditation as a way of connecting to God! It is saying “shut up, sit still and listen for a change!” – John
