Words represent slivers of Ultimate Reality. Each word is a non-empirically based reflection of something upon which we construct our world. Individually words embody a micro current, but connected, words join minds to other minds. The non-physical world of “Mind” uses word within the apparatus of the material world, to empty “itself” into all that exists. What we presuppose is our mind, is actually a collective or “hive mind” transduced over time via word.
We possess varying levels of skill with regard to words. We mistakenly assume this skill is derived through education, or that it comes with acquiring knowledge. Since words are representations of things and not the things themselves, this skill actually accrues with our ability to apprehend what the words represent. Wisdom is thus the spiritual skill to use the knowledge we possess. Every word points us to wisdom.
Thus, words represent collective wisdom among and through all people. Collective wisdom points us to the love of God manifesting (incarnated) as the reality which are able to perceive. In Hebrew scripture, wisdom is depicted as a persona, (Christophany).
“The Lord possessed me at the beginning of his work,
the first of his acts of old.
Ages ago I was set up,
at the first, before the beginning of the earth.
When there were no depths I was brought forth…” (Proverbs 8:22-24)
Wisdom is the entirety of benevolent Truth and Ultimate Reality. Wisdom is emptied out in word as the conduit through the material world and reflected back to itself as the material world itself. Word is the contemplation (Mind) of our Creator going forth in and as the created world, creating it as it takes form through inspiration.
For example, before the best street taco can exist as something to eat and enjoy, it’s first the contemplation of Mind which always possessed “taco-ness.” Wisdom is the skill to transduce taco-ness into tacos. That impulse to taco is breathed in or “inspired” via Word.
This is the world’s actual design. True cosmology is subject to subject via the assimilation of word, not object to object via collision of objects.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:1-3)
Confused? It’s understandable. Confusion is our default mode.
“The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.” (John 1:9-10)
Science offers an unintelligent cosmos which denies spiritual reality. Religion offers a tribal cosmos which is too small for our questions. My invitation to all comers is to follow the light of Word and Wisdom. Word is not only within everyone, but is the substance of our existence. Word comes from a voice which speaks and inspires. A voice we’ve all heard at some point in our lives.
In silence, regain this conversation…mind to mind…and see everything become new.
