Silence day


your thoughts speak in silence
uninterrupted

sometimes with a scream
sometimes in whispers
sounds in the dark
the inner voice
is always there

get to know her
learn to tame her
learn to love her

know her truthfully
your being is beautiful
your silence is powerful

On 10 July 1925, Meher Baba began his long silence, which he kept for the next 44 years. Every 10 July his followers or lovers from all over the world commemorate this occasion by observing a day of silence for 24 hours from midnight of 9th until midnight of 10 of July.

Pete Townshend from the popband the WHO has been inspired by Meher Baba.


In stilte spreken je gedachten
ononderbreken

soms met een schreeuw
soms in gefluister
geluid uit het duister
de innerlijke stem
is er altijd

leer haar kennen
leer om haar temmen
leer om haar beminnen

ken haar waarachtig
jou wezen is prachtig
jou stilte is krachtig

Op 10 juli 1925 begon Meher Baba zijn lange stilte, die hij de volgende 44 jaar bewaarde. Elke 10 juli herdenken zijn volgelingen of geliefden van over de hele wereld deze gelegenheid door een dag van 24 uur stilte in acht te nemen van middernacht van 9 tot middernacht van 10 juli.

Pete Townshend van de popband de WHO is geïnspireerd door Meher Baba.
