Ben 2 World: STFU

Lunghu is being very quiet as he writes this —because you never know who might be listening … and we’re not talking about those silent black helicopters, either.

 

In his annual communications message released Tuesday, Benoit Seize extolled the sounds of silence.  “Joy, anxiety and suffering can all be communicated in silence –indeed it provides them with a particularly powerful mode of expression.” … He noted that sometimes the most authentic communication takes place in utter silence, “between people who are in love: gestures, facial expressions and body language are signs by which they reveal themselves to each other.”

And, of course, the eyes … windows to the soul.

“By remaining silent, we allow the other person to speak, to express him or herself, and we avoid being tied merely to our own words and ideas without them being adequately tested,” he said.

Reflect deeply.  In silence, of course.  The void is never very far away.

However, Lunghu would also like to take this occasion to remind oppressors everywhere that silence does not equal assent.  This fundamental truth should be remembered at all times … particularly by the clergy themselves.
