A father answers the questions of his child and they are happy together, in joyful dialogue.
Then the child asks a question, a meaningful question. A question that provides a window to his soul.
So now the father must think deeply—not just for the answer, but to reach to the essence of this answer so he may bring it to the world of his child. For a long while, the father is quiet.
And so, the child becomes anxious and begins to cry.
“Father, where are you? Why do you no longer talk to me? Why have you deserted me for your own thoughts?”
And then the father begins to speak, but this time it is the deepest core of his mind that flows into the mind and heart of the child. Such a flow that with this the child, too, may become a father.
The child is us. The time of silence is now.
When the spirit of humankind is dim, when the flow gates of Above seem all but sealed, when the heavens are silent, prepare for liberation.
