  1. ‘Silence is ever-speaking. It is a perennial flow of language which is interrupted by speaking. These words I am speaking obstruct that mute language. For example, there is electricity flowing in a wire. With resistance to it’s passage, it glows as a lamp or revolves as a fan. In the wire it remains as electric energy. Similarly also, silence is the eternal flow of language, obstruced by words.’ – ramana maharshi

    If the silence is like direct knowing of one’s surroundings, it seems natural for the human instument to articulate direct knowing into thoughts and words, but to then take ownership of those thoughts and words, believing that they created them, and are organizing them, and that they are true, then it is a bit like they are pissing the words out, like a dog using them to claim it’s territory.

  2. I enjoyed the more informal nature of this episode, it felt more light hearted and humorous to listen to. I also enjoyed the music in this, and other episodes, (but now I can’t get the song ‘I’m really fucking bored’ out of my head.)

    My wish for future episodes would be Antero Alli talking about chapel perilous and Jake Kotze talking about non-duality.
