My previous talk was that God is a Verb. Well the Word is a Verb. Speak but the Word is speak but your truth that you are a verb. When you have one thought that you are a noun, which is a self image, then you lose your nerve. You capitulate to the English teachers and the priests of Culture. You make your reality it the common grammar and its laws. You can’t speak spontaneously without a lesson plan or script. You can’t speak from the heart without fear of repercussions. You can’t speak your word with fear of what people will think.
It is very subtle, what people will think. I’m wearing a mala blessed by my guru Swami Muktananda 27 years ago. I hesitated. What will people think? Then I said the hell with it…and let go. Being a Verb is letting go of being a noun. Being action is letting go of being something. Being who you are is letting go of who people think you are. Being who you are is taking the risk of being alone.
But then, when you take that risk, you discover that you are not alone because everyone is a secret Verb. Verbs resonate with each other because Verbs are free….from being nouns and defined and the judgment of nouns. Verbs don’t give a shit…and yet they are in sync with life because life is a Verb. Being a noun is being our of sync with life, and being a noun creates this floating anxiety that something is wrong. Of course, something is wrong. You are denying your true self. But we try to fix that by following the rules of grammar. The hell with grammar. Throw the text book in the trash. But after you do that, a little grammar will help you communicate what it’s like to be free of grammar.
