Have you ever listened to silence?

We have been sitting once in a small group in the absoulte silence of the Mesr desert in Iran. It was full moon and the dunes and hills around looked in that silverlight like landscapes of the moon itself.

It´s been a while that none of us had spoken or moved. It felt to me as if the time stopped and i could clearly hear the silence. It was a deep wobbling bass sound, that started at dawn and now it was heavy and black like a thick blanket lying on my shoulders. The interesting thing is that as soon somebody spoke or played music, it was gone. You even didn´t feel the weight of the darkness anymore!

Anyway, everybody obviously listened to this deep silence, as we suddenly heard a single yet clearly resonating tone of my Guitalele buzzing and immadiatley fading away. The more irritating thing was, that it was lying a few meters aways and nobody could have touched or moved it unintentionally!

At the end it was one of this little desert-flies sitting on one of the strings and as it flew away, it „played“ this fine, though percievable tone…

Without the silence around, we could have never experience this. Silence is not just the absence of sound. It’s not just the lack of noise. Silence has its own beauty and its own power. Silence has the power to change us and to change the world around us.

„There is no music, without silence…“

Beloved people! These days we once again got horrible news from the land of my origins, Iran.
Last week two young men got executed at dawn. Their only “guilt” has been demanding freedom. For a better life for themselves, for their mothers, sisters and a whole country.


This is the time I wanna share with you one of my biggest “secrets” behind all I do. The why behind all the songs, videos and messages I´ve been sending you all these years.
At a winternight like this, I was home and just 10 years old as I had to witness how the half of my family got arrested and disappeared for years in political imprisonment.
At that time I couldn´t really get what that means to my parents not knowing where my sisters are for months. They went from police station to ministry to the next political jail trying to get a hint where their children have been taken to.
Later I understood this was part of the strategy to crush families, to break them.

Since then a solitary cell and torture got a face to me: The face of my family.
It is no matter if that´s happening in Iran, Gaza, Russia or Great Britain.
I know everybody sitting in there has some family, wife, husband, children, people caring for and worrying about them.

And creativity has been through all these years for me the salvation turning all the dark feelings into something meaningful. Every song I write and play, I do as well for that soul been caught in a dark cell.
And isn´t it like we often carry our own single cells around us, without even recognizing the bars?
Have you ever felt tired of carrying your luggage for decades on your back?

I am here to share with you not only my songs but my story. Cause there is meaning, there is joy and there is the need to share our stories. Just knowing we are not alone, lets us grow together, making us feel stronger even if we feel like stuck in a cell.

There is a shining future for a new humanity. One we will create together!

Lovely ones, thanks for taking time to read this message of mine. Feel free to write me yours. I am here to listen!
One love, one heart,
Om
