Swami Veda Bharati has provided this study list for those seeking guidance.
Swami Veda shares this letter of Diane "as an example of egoless reaction to one's spiritual accomplishment of silence -- something to aspire for" and writes that it would be beneficial for those who undertake periods of silence with us to look at themselves in the way Diane has done -- candidly and without fear.
Thank you for your wonderful teaching during the days of the silent retreat at Minneapolis.
On the first day of class of the ten day retreat, Swami Ritavan asked if each might share what we hoped to achieve by attending this retreat. My reply was, "Would like to become aware of impediments that keep me from living fully through my Divine Soul."
Through not being mindful, my careless misdeed of speaking when professing silence has made me acutely aware of one of my defilements. A momentary lapse in mindfulness may easily bring undesirable consequences to what has been achieved.
Only a fool speaks words that do not come from the stillness of mind--a mind whose team of wild horses and raging elephants are at bay. This person admits to being a fool; she freely states what others may merely think or whisper. My prideful overly active mind wishes to be my master and resents being my servant.
