Is the word, opinion, judgement, or idea which appears in the mind, the actual experience…?? Does a word have reality which can actually hurt you, or is it a word a form of duality from what is actually happening…?? How can anyone really be free and independent if one does not meditate on this deeply…??
Words are powerful constructs in the mind, mechanical, patterns of conditioning mostly; especially negative words which condemn or judge, because these words analyze experiences as they might go for us, as they might be for us, and not experiences as they really are–i.e., “She will break up with me,” “I won’t be good enough,” “I will faint in front of them,” “I will get sick,” “I am not awakened enough to become that,” and so on and so forth. All thoughts not based on reality.
But all words, negative and positive, are of time, are they not…?? They either describe the past or the future. You are looking at a flower, you see its colors, its form, you feel mystically enthralled by it or not; so, then comes thought, a word or phrase which says “It is a beautiful flower” or “It is a horrible flower.” But as soon as these words come into the mind, you are distancing yourself from the actual experience, the actual Now moment, you are labeling the experience as you wish, you are focused on the words and not on the actual substance which connects you to the flower–namely love, which is pure silence.
Words judge for good or bad, they create a description which is not the actual experience; there is an image of the flower in your mind now, that image attracts you to the flower’s form or it repulses you.
This is how all fear, and its many forms of attachment, is born, by a thought which judges and creates a distance between this same word and the actual experience which does not need words.
But by just observing fear, without judging or naming it, you go beyond it, beyond thought, beyond time itself; consequently, you dwell in this silence of the mind which is beyond thought, and this silence is rich, vital, energizing, dynamic, without judgement of any kind, where there is ABSOLUTE freedom from fear–unlike any concept of freedom the intellect or the ego understands.
“Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.” ~ Bertrand Russell; British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic, political activist, and Nobel laureate.
