Breaking the Silence
Text & Artwork by Annette Duveroth
Silence is golden?
For sure, silence truly IS golden, though only as long as the silence speaks of a higher truth.
What do I mean by this?
Let us turn this around and start by using some wise words quoted from the Russian writer and film director, Yevgeny Yevtushenko;
When truth is replaced by silence, the silence is a lie.
— Yevgeny Yevtushenko
There is a clear tipping point where silence turns from being golden, into becoming either a self-chosen or forced censorship. Some weeks ago, I heard the respectfully challenging Brittish author and speaker, David Icke mention this quote. In that moment, it came totally clear to me, how we have come to implement this kind of censorship at ALL levels in our Freedom of Speech Society! I also realized that I was passively taking part in this myself.
David Icke then reinforced the clarity with:
Censorship is to art as lynching is to justice.
— Henry Louis Gates
During the last years, I have kept myself in silence to seek my own answers. I needed to sort a higher truth out of all that is happening around us, and all that main stream media is pouring out. We have been lead to believe in sophisticated and numbing lies, generation after generation... The truth that has been kept hidden is so incomprehensible, that we cannot fathom the extension of it. Thereby we have allowed ourselves into an intellectual and spiritual numbness.
When the truth IS spoken, it is either dismissed to be too good to be true, or too morbid to be true.
That day — all of a sudden — I remembered a deep and profound sense of certainty. Like a timeless knowingness, where all infinite possibilities came back into remembrance. In that moment I knew for certain, that what we label as subconscious mind is a part of our mind that has been deliberately numbed off and closed down... and it can all be reactivated again.
My intent is not for you to believe in my words. Instead, I hope for you to open your mind to new perspectives and reconnect to your own inner certainty. In this state, all naturally unfolds as a pulling creative power and all false illusions dissolve by themselves without any judgments. There is no existence for them.
Finally, to sum this up with some wise words from the Polish author Stanislaw Jerzy Lec.
Silence must be heard in its context.
