Alice H. Klein
Alice is my old friend (first met in high school) and Baba link. We roomed together at the 1969 Darshan. She is a wonderful poet and lives in California. —Kendra
I was never terribly concerned about whether Baba broke his silence or not. Some people did fall away when Baba left his body and apparently hadn’t broken his silence. But if I thought about it at all, and as I think about it now, it seems to me that Baba’s always breaking his silence. On the other hand we were somehow led to expect something like a big explosion of energy — the big spiritual push — because Baba spoke about people receiving this energy, and being transformed by it, when he broke his silence, depending on individual capacity, receptivity, readiness. This made a lot of people feel it would be a sudden event, but there’s really nothing in that idea that insists on that point of view.
