Cheeky silence is everywhere!
Cheeky silence is reality, an environment, a practice, an attribute and a person all at once.
God betrays His presence in the cheeky silence.
Cheeky silence fills the spaces between the notes and words of everything ever played and said or sung.
Cheeky silence fills the voids between all the latest discovered subatomic particles, and all the quanta of time.
The wise behold the cheeky silence and laugh along with Him.
God is the Tremendous Lover who loves me in every moment and location, though I only rarely requite that love, so distracted am I with my little toys. God is playful and cheeky with me, always trying to catch my eye with the twinkle in His, but I have to look up from my petty occupations and cease my babbling to see.
Do you have cheeky silence in your life? Listen and look when there is seemingly nothing there, and you will have found Him. Put your ear to the ground of Being, and you will hear the thrilling sound of cheeky silence, and your heart will leap with joy.
(By cheeky, I do not mean rude, vulgar or insolent. I mean the cheekiness of small children, animals in the wild, or daisies on the lawn, things undefiled).
The silent cheeky One walked this Earth once, teaching for free, to any who would listen, the secret of Eternal Life. He was murdered for cheeking the stuffy high priests, but then, then He came back from the dead-what an awesome cheek that was!
And now we live in the magnum silentium between His Ascension and Second Coming. His last words to us were:
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
Silence is not the absence of sound, it is the absence of self, and the presence of Him.
It is time to get out there, and be vociferously, and cheekily silent!
