It is so difficult to break with the script of our life, which is a very deep program, when we get into it. It’s Russian nesting dolls without end, it seems. We keep tryin to get down to the pure Word or Soul, and all we find is another doll or story of Me, a script or program I didn’t know was activated. When conditions are right, our old programs will activate, and we feel we have lost our soul or word.
But wait, this is just an opportunity to SEE that a program has been activated by conditions. A happy fault! A blessed Curse, when we use the program’s pain to see through it…and that SEEING is the Soul! The Soul is pure uncontaminated unconditioned SEEING. Thou Art That.
And when your Soul SEES, you Word is activated for they are the same. SEEING or Awareness is your Being, and Being is your action. So Seeing through and through the programs of your conditioned life is also Action. There is no division.
But when we see only from the mind, only from the intellect, from our Little Me, then action is hesitant because we don’t trust the seeing of the mind’s separate self. We need insurance, feed-back, notes, script. We can’t go the Full Monty. We keep back a fig leaf.
“Speak but the Word and my soul will be healed”….is the cotton ball we are pulling apart here. What does speaking mean? What does the Word mean? What does soul mean, and what does healed mean? This is enough question to last for a year. The primary question is to whom is this being addressed, and it is a prayer, a request or is it an affirmation? Go whims the speaker of this Word speaking? God or himself? Who is to speak my Word? What authority has my Word, can give me my Word and heal me. Healed from what? From being separated from m Word, that’s what.
Interpreted as an appeal to God, one actually affirms the very separation one wants to be healed from. It’s like asking Trump to speak your Word, to speak for you, to represent you, to be your Voice. Trump actually told his followers to let him be your voice, your word.
We are always unconsciously asking another authority to speak my word, to be my script, program, and insurance policy. We don’t trust ourselves. It usually begins in childhood when we are indoctrinated into a culture that speaks for us, that actually separates us from our Word so that we depend upon external but internalized scripts and programs. We are in pain but don’t know why.
This is Buddha’s Four Noble Truths, when you get down to it. You are suffering because you are separated from your WORD. You are separated from your Word because you don’t trust that you have a Word. We let others speak through us as if they were our original word. If we try to break out, we feel guilty. On and On….
Speaking your Word is a rebirth! You suddenly discover that you are ALIVE! The Word you speak is the Word of Life itself. The whole cosmos speak through you as you. BAM! You are the King and you have discovered your Speech.
You must find a safe place in which to practice speaking your Word, a place that is protected from the storms of judgment and criticism. When you find that place—maybe your art of craft, or sport, or some specialty you do—then you let its powerful healing energy spill out into your world, melting your fear scripts and programs in a natural wave. But you Intention must be to Speak Your Word. Unless you have that heart felt intention or Desire, you will never be free. Intention is everything.
But if, who you speak your Word, you divide the world, then your Word is not free because it is dependent upon having someone you can blow over with your word. You True Word is the Word of Life, and Life always unites and restores balance. Life is One and so is your Word.
