Different Silence

The silence of a graveyard is not the same as the silence of a sunrise. To understand this difference is to understand love and to understand love is to understand life…

To understand love it’s imperative to understand how it arises from silence, but it doesn’t arise from the silence of a graveyard, love arise from the silence of a sunrise. The silence of a sunrise is so different than the silence of a graveyard, both are silence, but they’re different because of the place they arise from. This has to be understood if one is to understand love.

When existence began love was present, it had to be because there wasn’t anything else. It is like the Buddha, the Dalai Lama or Jesus, they are the essence of love because it’s present in them. The difference with them unlike most people is they never lost sight of this. There was nothing that had a strong enough pull on them to take away their silence. Their love arose from silence and is a love of all humanity. Most people on the other hand lose sight of their true essence and are led astray by the silence of the graveyard instead of a sunrise.

The silence of the graveyard is not pure silence, it’s a silence arising from attachment. What I mean by this is there is so much attachment to life and death that the energy associated with it becomes stagnated. It will manifest as silence, but it’s so different than the silence of a star filled sky, a growing flower, or a sunrise. It’s very difficult to understand this difference without the silence of love. Life is a process to get back to the silence of love. It’s a place we should have never left, but we were led astray. The Dalai Lama loves because that is what’s in his heart. Jesus loves because that is what’s in his heart, same with Buddha, their love never left their hearts because they never left the silence; that is the only difference in their love and anyone else. Love is love and who is used as an instrument doesn’t really matter as only love itself means anything because in the silence of a sunrise is the love of life…
