Testimonial Commentaries on Silo’s Message
Silo, the great awakened one.
These commentaries cover a period of my life that goes from 2002, when Silo‟s Message was launched, to 2018 and they include the first commentaries that I had written in the year 2011. These writings came from the personal need of telling my own experience and the change that progressively was produced in me as I went deeper into The Message. There is also the aspiration that this testimony may be useful to other who take The Message as the path of liberation from our own and others suffering, as the path towards the Meaning of life.
These writings arose from a personal need to share my own experience and the discoveries and conclusions I have reached in working with Silo ́s Message. I hope my testimony can help others use this Message as the path toward freedom from suffering for themselves and others, as the path toward the meaning of life. Silo‟s Message is not based on dogma; rather it is about free interpretation. That is also the framework of these comments, which are made according to the understanding and experience I reached after some time.

The action of bringing this experience to my relatives, friends and others helped me comprehend and achieve a greater opening toward other people, enabling me to reach experiences previously unknown.
This work is a testimonial to an experience anyone can reach if they make Silo ́s Message their own. It is presented in poems describing experiences that make up a process. The poems are followed by explanations that show the way I practice everything that is presented in the book, and the non-linear process that progressively developed. I have never followed the meditations in sequence, but have accompanied them with ceremonies.
The final part includes three complete tales of experiences that have been important in my process. The message that Silo has kindly given us is a way to a life that is both coherent and transcendent. It leads us to justice, to reconciliation. Through it we can reach the Profound, ultimately unveiling the existence of a permanent Meaning that transforms life, illuminating it. The belief in definite death fall down and thus breaking our enchainment to suffering. It is also possible to reach the unmistakable personal experience of what I call the divine
