THE POWER IS NOT IN THE WORD. THE POWER IS IN GOD. AND GOD FOREVER TRANSCENDS WORDS
A page of the Bible is open. The words are not clear, but a spray of flowers lies upon the Bible. The flowers have no words, but their language is the language of Creation and of God. In the darkness a priest holds high the Word of God. But both Bible and priest are shadowed. Only the spray of flowers seems eternal and true.
Our spiritual journey, our eternal mystical quest for meaning can never be categorised, can never be systematised. To seek the spiritual and mystical Truth in ancient words, that belong to other cultures and other languages, and for which we do not even have the original manuscripts, is to seek merely for some sense of certainty that we end up favouring over truth itself. We might claim that it is God’s Word that stirs souls, but it is not. When matters spiritual stir us, draw us, guide us, there is something far deeper and something far far beyond categorisation that is awakening us. We need to understand that the Truth of the Universe, the Truth of Creation, the Truth of the Mystical and Sacred, the Truth of our ultimate spiritual pilgrimage of awakening, lies beyond our ability to categorise or define within the confines of our language. For our world’s languages evolved within a three-dimensional, physical plane, and the Truth of the Spirit, the Truths of the Mystical Sacred Ways to God, are always multi-dimensional, always ONE with the ALL, always infinite and eternal in their compass.
Even the greatest pilgrims and proponents of our various faiths are awakening us only when they are themselves touched by the indefinable infinity of the ONE, only when their inspiration transcends their own understanding.
We also need to understand that we all come closer to God, we all touch the infinite and enter into the mystical realms of spiritual awakening when we love, and when we are suffused with kindness. Our deepest and highest moments have nothing to do with understanding, nothing to do with the categorisation of Words, and everything to do with our spirit being touched with the great and Universal Spirit of the Sacred ALL. We only touch God’s Truth when we touch for a moment our eternal ONENESS with OTHER. And in those moments, words will always fail us. And in those moments, we at last transcend words.
One reason the Church grew in its very earliest days, but is not growing now, is not because people then relied on the scriptures, but do not now, which many want to believe. It is because the spirit of God and the needs of those earlier times required it to expand. Now, however, we are entering a ‘new time’, and this ‘new time’ is not the Church’s time. But it is always God’s time. As always we are being awakened in order to experience to the full the next phase in humanity’s progression to the stars.
It isn’t God’s Word that stirs souls.
It is God.
It isn’t God’s Word that’s true.
It is God.
It’s not us who bring others to God.
It is God.
