Hello Darkness My Old Friend

by Anpu's Crone


A few days ago I had this stuck in my head.  while I was singing ‘hello darkness my old friend’ to myself I opened FB on my phone and at the top of my feed was a link to this song and video.  The Man that posted it also belongs to Anpu.

This is an excellent cover done by Disturbed.

A couple day’s later at the Satsang class in Cassadaga the Teacher actually used the words ‘The sound of silence’

Enough coincidence.

For quite a while now I’ve been trying to write about this.  Keep not quite getting it ‘right’ so …

With my little ego out of the way

In the name of my Lord Anpu

In keeping with the Laws of Maat

With the wisdom of Tahuti

May I communicate here what You would have me communicate about this song.

So mote it be.


The joining of lyrics, video and audio makes this cover very powerful.

Here Disturbed opens with a visual of the “wasteland”

In Western Grail Legends the King must join with the Goddess of the land or the Land will become a wasteland.

Sovereignty …the right to rule comes from the mystical Union of the human welding power over the land and people with the Divine spirit of the Land itself.  The ruler is charged with the Divinly ordained task of using his or her power to serve the needs of those he or she rules over.  If need be the Ruler is to sacrifice his or herself for the good of the Land and the people.

In our societies there is no such sacred Union.  Instead those who rule over us do so to  increase their own wealth and power without regard for the welfare of either the people or the lands that they have rulership over.

The wasteland is the result.

I’ll let the video speak itself.
