Everybody Loves An Eccentric Holy Man
Meher Baba and all Indian gurus pay close attention to Hollywood and pop culture. Spiritual leaders especially took note of the hippies and youth culture of the sixties and seventies. Love really is all you need. It took me a long time to really feel and experience that and not just mouth the words to a Beatles song written by John Lennon.
I love my muses the Kissing Kaur Kussans, Adarsh and Dya, because they have inspired me to write a hundred or more blogs. Love and forgiveness consciousness are requisites for spiritual enlightenment. It took me a long time to get that one. Loving your enemy is to set your heart and soul free and has very little to do with anyone perceived as an enemy. Once you vibrate at the right frequency there is no enemy and there is no other.
Silence is Godness
Like I told Dya Kaur during Level 1 Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training, it is easy to see her alter ego, Libby Hudson Lydecker as myself. However, it takes a little more work to see everyone on the planet as myself but now I can actually practice it. When Meyer Baba zeroed himself out with his vow of silence, it became easy for him to actually become the other person. The really important things happen in silence.
Meher Baba & Yogi Bhajan
When Sikh entrepreneur Yogi Bhajan saw the hippies on Melrose Avenue he got their money up front and created the Kundalini religion to sell back at them. When Meher Baba took note of the hippies and drug culture he woke them up with silent dharma transmission. Kundalini yoga is great for the material world however the real action begins in the silence of the spiritual world. Kundalini is a good discipline for going out in the world and making lots of money. Meher Baba is about loving and living God in everyday life. Meher Baba’s entire library is available free online. The kundalini’s would never do that.
CELEBRITY MEHER DEATH MATCH
Meher Baba vs. Guru Meher
Baba Meher and Baba O’Riley are free on YouTube but Guru Meher is not. Guru Meher and the Kundalini yogi’s of Beverly Hills want to get the money up front. Guru Meher has even taken to crowd funding in order to get paid to write another mediocre kundalini yoga book with a trendy title like Emotional Liberation.
Meher Baba created and then intentionally broke up or disbanded several ashrams, nomadic groups, schools and other religious organizations as he saw fit in pursuit of his universal spiritual work. Kundalini yogis just want to get the money up front without concern for the quality of the product they are delivering. Meher Baba was more concerned about quality than quantity.
Verbal Silence, Written Thunder
Meher Baba has inspired me to take a modified vow of silence. Meher Baba used an alphabet board to communicate. I use a laptop and this WordPress blog. Maybe when I am in public I will text the person I am with instead of speaking to them. Who would even know in this day and age?
A few years ago I began praying for wisdom and it appears to all be taking place. I have so much love for everyone that I don’t need to go out driving around looking for love. I have been liberated from cruising online looking for love and intimacy because everything was already right here in my loving heart. I love the kundalini’s most of all because they have given me the inspiration for a thousand blogs.
Someone who is taciturn is reserved, not loud and talkative. The word itself refers to the trait of reticence, of seeming aloof and uncommunicative. A taciturn person might be snobby, naturally quiet, or just shy.
Having its origin in the Latin tacitus, “silent,” taciturn came to be used in mid-18th-century English in the sense “habitually silent.” Taciturnity is often considered a negative trait, as it suggests someone uncommunicative and too quiet. Jane Austen wrote, “We are each of an unsocial, taciturn disposition, unwilling to speak, unless we expect to say something that will amaze the whole room, and be handed down to posterity with all the éclat of a proverb.”
