Be still and know ...

"Be still and know that I am God"
(Psalm, 46:10)

This is a tremendous verse in Psalm (more familiar to Muslims as Jabur). This verse is one of my all time favorite. Its very simple, but it holds the greatest mystery, the hidden message. The mystery of how to know God...it is to be still, to be calm, to be meditative...by making our mind clear...by making our heart pure...only then we can realize God within, since He is the nearest. He encompasses everything and nothing encompasses Him. Meditation is a great tool to have God realization within ourselves.

In Quran also we have a beautiful verse where it is said that God can be realized inside our heart and soul.

Soon will We show them our Signs in the Universe and IN THEIR OWN SOULS, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things? How! Are they still in doubt about the meeting with their Lord? Lo! Is not He encompasses all things?
(Quran, 41:53-54)
