BE THE SILENT NOW
UNLESS OTHERWISE HAPPENS
THAT’S ALL IT’S EVER REALLY BEEN
SINCE BEFORE FOREVER
....awareness is an effortless activity.
Will awareness bring you the holiness you so desire?
Yes and no.
The fact is you will never know.
the type that is not achieved
through techniques and efforts and repression,
true holiness is completely un-selfconscious.
You wouldn't have the slightest awareness
of its existence in you.
for even the ambition to be holy will have dropped
as you live from moment to moment
a life made full and happy and transparent
your eyes will see the Savior.
Not security, not love,
not belonging, not beauty,
not power, not holiness---
nothing else will matter anymore.

The Last Meditations of
Anthony de Mello

after copying the above
Anthony de Mellow quote
Not very long ago in Hyderabad there was a mureed, rather an intellectual pupil, and he liked to talk. His teacher was interested in his intelligent inquires, and so he encouraged him to talk, whereas it is the custom in the East for the pupil to remain silent before his teacher.
One day the teacher was in a condition of exaltation, and his pupil as usual wanted to discuss and argue, which was not agreeable to the teacher at the time. He said in Persian, “khamush”, which means silence. And the pupil remained silent.
No one heard him speak after that, no one in the house nor outside; he never spoke anywhere.
His silence became living. It was the spoken words which had kept him dead all this time. The moment his lips were closed the silence in him began to live.
His presence was living. In Hyderabad people called him Shaikh Khamush, the king of silence or the silent king.
