there are those who say
it

is

nothing

insane but i

have

always
thought
of

a

more

thoughtful silence as
being

not quite there

for

you
and

i
of

course we are

not

talking

in

parables like it is quiet really we
are
seeking
to
put a little english on

it
and
think

for ourselves in a really

big

hurry

listen
i am going to chant

Hare Krsna okay yes like this yes

yes

i

am

not

kidding
tongues

are

going to fly

i

mean wag but let them

talk

talk talk themselves into sleeping
with

their
clothes

on so to speak i am not

lying

we are seeking to put

a

little

english

on it can't
you

tell by the

way

i
am

getting into the

stuff

yet no no
no

slow

down

dear there is

no

prabhu prabhu prabhu

to

chastise
for

doing

the

unmentionable like this it is

nowhere
near

as
quiet as that

in

here but silence
is
the treatment or at least
the
sound

of

being in silence is pure

nonsense

on the level

of
doing

nothing

about it dear

but
i

wouldn't

expect you to
do

nothing about it

yet
when
you

do nothing about it i

am
scared
you

know very frightened

yes and it

hurts

us

all
to
think

of

your

silence truly doing

nothing
about

it

but i imagine

it

is very effective in a way i

mean

i

imagine

there is nothing to do

about

it

fairly

effectively in the silence dear and that

is

what

frightens

me yes silence
is

awfully quiet wouldn't

you

say
it

is better to enjoy yourself

and
give

a

shout
out

to the many
one

way

instead

of
that

imagined silence edging

along

in

every

direction like it

sounds

funny but there is no
other

treatment

suitable

how would you like the
silent

treatment

to

go
on

and on and on i

know

i know the silent treatment is not
for

us but sheesh

just

see

the
way i am

imagining
it

for
instance isn't that

awful

i'll tell you

what

i
am

i am dying to see action speak

louder
than

words

yes
absolutely

it

is

all over the place yeah

maya

i
am in maya

you

are
in

maya too it's all over
you

can see her

but

we
can't

see

her

alone somehow or

other
it's

all

over

the

place and one

is

getting
it

the wrong way

there

is
no

right
way
to get maya

alone

in a trance

i
was

cool
never

felt

alone

with

her felt her
presence
not

at

all but she

was

there
and

you were right
it's

all

over

she

can't
stand

being

alone with us

all
over the place like it
matters
because there is
no

one
for

you

no

you
were
right i was

wrong

for her she can't stand
me

at
all

it's all over
here

we go now

no

one
for

her

you

were

right
for her that way you knew how
to
play
dead

instead of being

one

with her one

there
is

no

one for us

all

with her you
knew

you were right and i

was

wrong for her no one
at
all could be

that

crazy about her to leave one for

her

i am okay i mean i am not dead yet i am

wrong

for her you see how
she

needs
you

to play dead i can't

fathom

it

it's
all

over

the place like

you

said

maya

and i was in it
with
you in a

flash

never

alone

with

her

i
can

not be alone

with

her

thank
you

very

much for telling

me
that

now

where were we

yes

before

the

fall of this into that

so

to
speak

were we in each other's arms or

where

we
were

otherwise

distracted now that it is
all

over we should

be

able to see

one

tell

us
the

truth

about each other like this

how

did
we

get to be this close to each other in

her
presence

now that we

are

in

maya

together the pressure

is

off no more

constraint

striving
to

be

one

with her all

to

ourselves so to

speak

in

a

can of worms

like

blind

monkeys with no
uncle
to

remind
us

how
we can't be
together
with her all
to

ourselves
one

at a time

one

at
a

time

we

have to be careful of

that

she will kill

us

if we try

to
be
alone

one

by

one we will

all

die

off

trying to be alone with her one

at
a

time

yes we have
to

be

together we can't be shy about it

that

way anymore it's all over
but

the

crying

has to stop
we

can't be feeling sorry for ourselves all

over

the place like

it

matters
who

we are together with her

we

have to be
smart

and take a chance on

Krsna

consciousness in a

pinch
that is our

situation

normal here yes our situation normal so
to
speak

is

that
way

here and there is no

imagining it as
God

alone with her

either

she
is
not

to

be
alone

yes and no
our
bright

guru

Srila Prabhupada is far from
the

feeling

of
abject

loneliness

but

we
share
a
sensitive
perspective

that conveys more than a

little

reality
i

feel

i
am
in
the
right

understanding with you

and
you
know

knowing
from

there and then

how
we


feel
as much as see his vision dear
yes
dear
we

are

so

very real that

way
it

hurts

maya or is
that

you

but
why

would

it hurt you

am

i

hurting

you
is
that

it

is that what

has

been going on so far

as

you

can

tell
dear

tell me the truth i

am

in

maya
and can't get it together
without
you
yes

dear

yes dear i am listening

that

is our situation

normal
here

dear

yes

dear
i

am
listening

dear
is that you

hello
hey

hello

i can't get

it
together
without

you

dear
listen is that

you

or
not
i haven't got time for this okay

listen
oh

i

see
i
see

why

don't you chant Hare Krsna and let her go
for
a

second

it

just
takes a second

dear

yes

yes
i know she

can't
be
alone

but it just takes a
second
after

all

we

have
been

through

this before you

know
yes

yes

i

know

i know i
am
listening

dear
alright alright but am i

hurting
you

tell
me the truth
well it might be
a
sense

of

humour
that
is

sore at risk in this
crimp

shrine
no

one even knows
when

we

sail
but tell me

am

i hurting you
or
not

dear
i

have
a feeling one

just

wants to know like it

yes

like
it

or not actually

one

just

wants

to
know
you

know
they

really

want
to

know how cupidity
works

with
her

and
you
they expect you

to

be awfully nice about it
don't

they dear yes
really
although

some

of them have

no

idea what you are like

somehow

somehow
or
other they expect

you

to be nice and i

can
see
that

i can see that you
are
different also not

like

me

no
more no more

like
you

know
what i mean

when
i

say

one

loves
you but you

don't

love one enough to make

a

difference

in
the morning like

this
of course i

am

not one to take sides
but
where are we
going
with this so

suddenly
one

just

wants to know

if

we are going

to

hell of course you know
one

has

no

sense of humour as one

thinks

in

terms
of absolutes only one knows

how

they expect hell

to
be

pure

but
they
do

dear
one

only

knows how but

they
do

expect
the worse and

in

hell
only

one

knows
yes
one
only
knows

how but one

knows

this

is
going
nowhere

without a sense of humour even as
one

has no sense

of
humour yes one
only
one
only

knows
dear
pure

hell

is a joke where you
come
from
even
as
one
knows but still

doesn't

get
it
one only knows

how
but
one
has no senses as one
only

knows one only
knows
the very idea is pure
but
there

is

no

hell
where you come from and
well
that
is

where we are

going
in

reality

the
inevitable
thank

you

very
much

does this hurt
by

the

way
no i do

not

ever think so
even

but you know

what

hurts at any

rate

i am busy so suddenly yes very

busy
going with this and you

can

chant Hare Krsna very nicely yes i
have

heard
you

leave

this
to me as you are
chanting
Hare Krsna so
very

nicely i like
the

sound of that actually that
sounds
great coming from
you
so suddenly dear Hare Krsna !
Prabhu Prabhu Prabhu
