Q: I just have a question about The Real Love musical. Master, You once told us that if Master was married, You would be able to help many more humans.

SM: Because more connections, that’s all.

Q: More connections. Yes, actually for me personally, before, I also knew about Master’s love story, about how You went to the West, married to a German doctor and then left to seek enlightenment. But I never really felt that connected. But actually after watching The Real Love musical, which was about Master’s love and life story, I felt touched to see how Master was so much in love with Your husband and with all the scenes and acting and the songs and the lyrics based on Master’s poetry, I could really connect and see that it was truly a real-life fairy tale.

And I was just amazed to see how Master could have the determination and strength to leave for a nobler cause even though You and Your husband were so much, so, so much in love. So, I was just wondering, Master, could sharing Your love story through The Real Love musical be like an alternative to Master personally getting married to help humanity?

SM: It was a long time ago, at that time. Right now I don’t have to. It was not that easy, you know. I cried a lot. I cried a lot when I left him. The last time also, we saw…before I left, I cried a lot, a lot, a lot. I cried not just, not because of me, I feel so sorry for him. I feel so, so very, very sorry for him so much. I cried a lot, a lot. It’s not that easy. I wonder how I have done it. I guess Heaven also blessed me to have done it, or maybe my destiny, I have to. Now I don’t have to do it. And yes, to your question, that musical also would help in some way because it would soften people’s heart, just like yours, you see? They feel it’s the real thing and so they would be more open to spiritual blessings and/or spiritual connection. It helps. Anything helps.

Q: Yes, Master. Thank You, Master.

SM: You’re welcome, love.

 

Master’s Inspirations for Silent Tears Poetry

Q: Master, we would like to know what inspired You to write the poetry anthology, Silent Tears?

SM: It’s just the empathy to humans’ struggle to achieve the impossible. We all go through this, saints, sinners, mortals, all alike. If you want to seek your true Self, this is a struggle like that. So I feel all the humans feeling. I feel empathy with them. That’s why I wrote it. It comes from within. It comes from my oneness with all humans’ struggle and pain. Even the non-practitioners, they also have moments of despair and the moment of need to turn inward, to pray to some power that they don’t even know what, to pray to the God that maybe they do not even believe. Always there is a struggle within the humans’ heart. So my poetry, the Silent Tears, is just the reflection of that. Okay?

 

The Meaning of the Verse “Loving the Silent Tears”

Q: Master, could You please explain the meaning of the verse, “Loving the silent tears,” which the creative team chose to be the title of the musical?

SM: When I wrote it, I didn’t think about it, anything. I just wrote the way I felt. You know, I just felt that way. Like when you’re crying, you feel relieved. Crying relieves the longing emotion, the choking emotion of frustration of not knowing God, of the so-hard-to-find God, so-hard-to-feel-connected-with God. So when you’re crying, at least you feel elated, you feel unburdened, yes? (Yes, Master.) So the practitioner feels some comfort while struggling to achieve the impossible – I mean the almost impossible, like the higher level of enlightenment. That’s why I said “loving the silent tears,” because at that time, you are so desperate to feel connection with God, to want to see the Master inside you, want to see your real Self, even if people offered you diamonds, you would not care! You would love to just sit there and thinking of the Master inside and crying, and thinking of Master, loving the Master, missing the Master, instead of looking at these worthless stones that they call diamonds. Okay? (Yes, Master.) That’s what it is. That’s what I felt at that time.

 

The Loving the Silent Tears Musical Uplifts the Whole World

Q: Master, could we know how significant this musical is for our world, in terms of world peace, spiritual evolution, etc.? Has it constructively changed just those who’ve seen the production, heard the songs or read of it, or does its influence go beyond that?

SM: Yeah, of course it influences more directly the people who come in contact with it, but of course the influence will go beyond and continue when we spread it more out.

And even before that, the vibration, the frequencies of these verses and music will carry through the whole world, you know, like radio wavelengths. People’s souls will understand it. Even if their mind does not grasp it, people’s souls will understand and be uplifted all the same.

Q: Thank You, Master.

SM: And this will continue to the next generations.

Q: Wow. Thank You, Master. Master, did the musical have a particular effect on the 16 countries that were represented in the show?

SM: Yes, of course, they earned more merit. (Wow.) But also thanks to you, and thanks to Mr. Al Kasha. Because even though it’s made in Heaven or it’s Heaven’s will, we need an instrument in this world to start it, to initiate it. So Mr. Al Kasha wanted to make it, and you want to do it, so of course, that’s how it becomes, okay?

Q: Yes, Master. Thank You Master.

SM: I myself would not tell you, “Okay, go do the music,” or tell Al Kasha, “Go write something. I’m busy with other things.” But if you want to do it, many people “okay” together, then this…it’s like Heaven’s will.
