“Devote yourself here and now to the search for the Truth that is ever within you.” ~ Ramana Maharshi

Stillness Speaks is a resource for self inquiry and self exploration – the endless journey of self realization. {Scroll to the bottom for its relationship with Atma Vicara.}

Stillness Speaks offers content from multiple traditions (paths), and teachers (luminaries), enabling our visitors to deeply explore the “many paths up the mountain:” from Christian to Sufi, from Zen to Hindu, Kabbalist to Kashmir Shaivism, Advaitic (Nondual) to Indigenous, from philosophical to atheist, from spiritual to scientific – the list is endless.

We offer wisdom traditions, and the work sages/teachers, both historical and contemporary, Eastern and Western – allowing interested individuals to explore the “reality of their experience” or their “True nature.”

This exploration is very personal, intimate, and not subject to any “absolutes” – which is why we provide content from, and assist explorations into, multiple traditions (paths).

Our content is offered through this website, our newsletters, and all of our social media channels (facebook, youtube, twitter, instagram and more, in time).

The Stewardship of StillnessSpeaks is committed to ensuring that we aggregate and distribute authentic resources (published material and content from/about awakened teachers) of the many traditions (paths) of self realization: be they spiritual, philosophical, or scientific.

StillnessSpeaks reflects the perennial view: a perspective which views each of the world’s spiritual and philosophical paths as sharing a single, universal truth on which foundation all knowledge and doctrine has grown. As Aldous Huxley once said, “One Reality, all-comprehensive, contains within itself all realities.”

“There is only one truth, only men describe it in different ways.” ~ The Rig Veda

StillnessSpeaks shares its namesake in honor of Eckhart Tolle, a physical embodiment of the living principles of a Truth that never changes.

StillnessSpeaks is not meant to be the final resource for the investigation into Reality or our True Nature; in the end, there is only one teacher. … That one is within.

May you find that teacher now.
