    Is the dial a prayer serious? Baba up in the sky hahah. love your work Darvish. Please keep us posted. I just wished you said New Jersey with an accent like your mouth was full of chewing tobacco

    • bill gannett says:

      Yes! Nosh sent out a email newsletter some months back- I think it may have been last fall, advertising a prayer service, and emphasizing his capacity for deep and heartfelt prayer. In retrospect, this misadventure in “intercession” attains new light. I believe he is drunk with the baraka of all the relics he has stockpiled.

  2. Rachael says:

    drunk indeed – well if you’ve been told you had a famous prior incarnation, perhaps you too then can rationalize behaving in a “special” way. Unfortunately, in this case, my view is that the obvious rationalization of specialness that has emerged here may do more damage than good.

    Here’s a question for Nosh and for those who also believe they have a “specialness” (as opposed to simply obeying a charge to do specific work for Meher Baba):

    just who could possibly be your successor?

    Does this question keep you awake at night, wondering who could possibly fill your shoes? Well, if it does, I believe you have an inflated sense of importance in the true scheme of things. Your shoes are human sized. Just a reminder from a mere minion.

  3. Rachael says:

    apparently Baba or someone thereabouts told Nosh he had been Khalil Gibran

  4. Hbj says:

    Or someone there abouts? I am there about and don’t believe. Not that Khalil Gibran would be anyone to excited about. A jug of wine, a loaf of bread, and thou. Maybe the Darvish was Khalil. Got some instruction up there in the heavenly sphere and is now The Darvish.

  5. bill gannett says:

    And by the way, you seem to be confusing Khalil Gibran, author of The Prophet, with Edward Fitzgerald, author of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayam.

    From a private email forwarded to Darvish Khan Writes:
    Hi Anson

    Interesting…. I work in heritage (in fact, I am on the Heritage Advisory Panel for Sunshine Coast Council) and the move these days in museums & archives is to RESTORE local items back to local museums. “Centralizing” all items into one “store” is potentially dangerous (one fire or war and they’re all gone). Also, the feeling these days is that items are better understood in the context of where they came from. Moreover, if we keep them where they were first kept, it “democracizes” access, and also helps the local economies (i.e. one now has a reason to visit the tiny town of Lilliput if Baba’s sandals are there). Sounds like the Baba community has to do some “catching up” with standard practice!

    I agree 100% with the above statement!
