Therefore he has used the imagery of a power-house, the switchboard and the light. By uttering the Word, the Power-house will be switched on; all connected with the Power-house will be enlightened. But bulbs that are not working or fused will not be able to receive or reflect that light. Therefore, this attunement to the Power is an essential condition of receiving the Word when uttered. He reminds mankind: "People should not expect an outpouring of verbosity. I will utter the Word of Words that will irresistibly impart to those who are ready the 'I-am-God' state." Therefore, at this present stage, he warns that if men were to receive through their hearing just a wave, a single vibration of the Aadi-Naad (Original Sound), men would lose bodily consciousness. The best and the highest music is only the seventh shadow of that Aadi-Naad. This concept of the Original Sound is basic to our understanding of this difficult subject. Listen to Meher Baba 's own utterance on this point: THE ORIGINAL NAAD— celestial music—does not need any tuning of 'tal,' or `sur' It is continuous. All worldly music is only the seventh shadow of that Naad;…” Guru Nanak said once: “The Beloved rarely gives a lover the cup of Divine Love to drink. If He ever gives it, instantaneously the 'drop' will become the 'Ocean’." Baba said: "The time has come when I shall break My Silence. The whole world will get a spiritual push, but the hearts of my intimate lovers shall be opened then. Such a time will not come again and has not come in the past. Today, the anti-spiritual element is at its height. Tibet, once known as the seat of God, is now a military camp. Hypocritical saints abound in these times. Science has advanced in the last ten years much more than it has ever done before. Hence, when all these factors are at their highest, spirituality will also be at its highest, in order not only to balance these factors, but to overrule them. The time for breaking My Silence is very near; so hold fast to My Daaman. I shall break My Silence....”
The time for the utterance is the mystical hour. "Why does not Meher Baba break his self-imposed Silence and preach in the market-place?" Baba answered: "Every great change must be carefully timed. How else would it be with the greatest revolution in the history of the world... the revolution in the mind of man? ...The time to preach in the market-place will come ...only after the world has been humbled and purified by a carnage greater than the world has ever seen." “...I do not intend giving you a lot of words to exercise your minds. I want your minds to sleep, so that your hearts may awaken in My Love."
“...It is not through words that I give what I have to give. In the Silence of your perfect surrender, My Love which is always silent can flow to you ...to be yours always to keep and to share with those who seek ME....
