“Slow down, you move too fast! You’ve got to make the morning last…” In our recent New Essene explorations we have been pondering the threefold gate of eternity: how Art (the Beautiful) activates an important neural pathway between the realm of the True (Science/Alchemy) and of the Good (Religion/Theurgy). It is our knowing that, being an art project, the Path of XPR plays an important part in solving the consciousness puzzle and opening the sacred gates to the eternal NOW.
Art opens the gate of the Beautiful, as it bypasses the mind. When we listen to great music, we are no longer thinking! That is the function of Art, whether visual, dance, music or otherwise, to immediately transport us out of the judgmental mind into the realm of the soul… We now stand a better chance to relate to our emotions as divine messengers and to marry them – for good, for bad, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.
So, if feeling is how to equalize our experience, and thus end a resistance that is making us sick, how do we become willing to feel? Moreover, why and when did we ever stop feeling? Developmental sciences of human development have established that, as soon as language is introduced, the child ceases to be multimodal, that is, to be an artist – to feel. Yet, what if that which is the cause of our limitations was also the source of our liberation? What if it were possible to feel and sense the words, just like we would a song, and feel groovy as a result? What if the mountains had a grammar, and the oceans, semantics?
In our upcoming meeting, we will discover a simple and natural matrix that acts to support both minds: the split mind and the sound mind. If such a matrix and word could even be heard and seen (or sung and painted), then it is likely that we would no longer consider language as a man-made abstraction, but as a familiar and soulful animal, transmitting sense and sensibility to all… Isn’t that, by the way, what spelling bee children do, who intuitively relate numbers, sounds and letters to nature’s building blocks, and are able to reflect on the organic root of words?
There is a sacred design behind the alphabet: it may not be random that letter A starts the show, that character O looks as round as an eye, and that sign T is formed as a cross. The letters are angels, imbued with the mission to help us feel our emotions, so that we could know ourselves and and be aligned in our communication (consistency between that which we say we want and what we experience in reality). Literally enlightening, the Hebrew signs are called the tongues of fire. Such a sacred fire may be what Teilhard de Chardin alluded to, when he offered: “The day will come when, after harnessing the ether, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”
Join us this upcoming Sunday in the discovery of the Word’s fiery spirit, and expose yourself to liquid Art, as we will be emPowering an elegant way to understand how and why the first, and arguably the most important, line of the Bible has the seeds for all of us to be looking for fun and Feelin “groovy”.We will start at noon EST / 11 AM CST / 9 AM PST this Sunday and explore “Language & the Word” page 13 and “Queen Water receives King Fire” page 14 of the New Essenes eBook (please make sure you have downloaded the latest version). If you can join us live this time, great! If not, you may always listen to the archive or join us for our other New Essene shows via Elevate the Soul radio. Logistics follow.
Until then and beyond, peace be with you,
