And the crowd goes silent….

It is kind of hard to deny..one is speaking truth….

When it stills your tongue…

When you go silent…and those cute…stabbing retorts…cannot roll off the tongue..

Kind of hard to deny the truth..when one is stilled…into silence…

It is not the act of bringing forth shame…even though some will feel shame…

That is not the point or desire…

It is a simple byproduct of speaking into things…and maintaining eye contact..so one has to look into some space and realize…lines have been crossed…..

And the scariest..most depth filled thing is this…

One must speak..if not it is certain death…for another..and possibly self…

I know that sounds like some science fiction statement…

But I am not speaking of a physical death….we do that well enough on our own..drugging and perversity which makes up our life…

I am talking about a spiritual death…an emotional..mental..enslavement…chipping off parts of us…as we go about our daily moments…

Recently..and I have more recent…ly’s than I like to admit…

More moments of the crowd going silent…and the affirmation..that this insight..seeing the heart…was indeed a blessing…

And I have concluded..that the act towards me..stung much less…and my desire to be liked fled…

Why…?

Because I knew truth was present..and another..(not just me…scratching my head going..doesn’t anyone see this..?)…got the AHA moment…

And the crowd went silent…

And I looked for this in my sons…

As truth was laid out before them…and they went silent…

And there are many instances in life where one must speak into…and silence the crowd…and silence all the squirrels doing laps in your brain…

Telling a child…that the cockiness…and blaming of the other parent or partner…is not allowed.. and they better find space within them…to acknowledge..they hold a hand in blame..and carelessness of the human soul…and discarded that which they could no longer work…over…

Or just because we have been doing something for many years…makes us no expert…and maybe..just maybe…we need new eyes…because we have crusted over…

Or maybe the act of playing another..to get something we wanted…is not acceptable…and you better apologize…before the monsters take over…and chew all of the heart up…

Or the energy expended..making another wrong..when they hit just the right note…does not quite feel as good as it used to…

And geez…one is tired…

It is watching the crowd go silent…

Avoiding the eyes….windows to the soul…

And silence is more effective than any words spoken….

And the crowds go silent….
