Abstract: Hadith No. 5 previews the Lingua-U, Language of Subtle Energy, to be debuted later this year on www.lingua-u.com. Beginning with a discussion of the state of language evolution and efforts to preserve linguistic diversity, the author holds that there is a need to respect linguistic diversity by honoring the Sacred Word traditions, not merely cataloging words and grammatical structures. Tolkien’s view of Esperanto is contrasted to the author’s, who is sympathetic but who believes that conlangs are not useful for the purposes of uniting the common patterns of Sacred Word traditions or bringing together linguistic universals at a subtle energetic level. Examples of the usefulness of Lingua-U are given by means of reflections on the meta-words for God and Christ. The author claims that Lingua-U may constitute a Violet technology for Integral Spirituality, meaning that it offers value that no other altitude of consciousness can deliver while incorporating their various perspectives as stations of life.
Life offers all human beings many choices from inception to passing over the bridge of light which sections or streams the membranes between the mundane world and the spirit world. Choice is the coin of life; it buys us passage from the Bardo at the end of the heavenly realms and could lift us out of the ardent obscurity of Death into a New Life.
Free choice is given for the election of forward pushing over pulling back, persisting in liminal zones after departure from one lifetime or renewal of the Great Promise Made to the Saviors of Humankind: When Sanguine Light-Bands Explode Out of Black, When Communion is Ingested and Agency is Ejected, When You Believe in the Resurrection and the Life, All Sins Be Forgiven, No Divine Vow IS Broken, And You Shall Live Eternally and Without Suffering save for the Exquisite Laughter-Approximations for which Your Holy Soul-Body/Bodies crave, Adventures and Submission in a Divine Playground in which Pain is Elected in tandem with Gains in a Gym of the Spirit-Body/Bodies, Mysteries Yonder the Streets of Addis Ababa.
The contemporary imagination is troubled by the understanding that Space, Time, and Thought are in fact a Unity which is Purveyed by the Mind of ?llah through the Primordial Prefix (see Audjuga Nub. 2) perceived poorly owing to Human Nature which is in need of Enlightenment. The Unity of Kosmos, Kronos, and Logos is perceptible by Humankind Who Are In ?e?ð (Zheidh), Enlightened Mind, and Invited to Come into the Light.
God is viewed as a superstition by some, a Heavenly Whip-Wielder by others, an abstract concept by others, a feeling of awe by Romanticists, a personality projected by the psyche by still others, a perspective disclosed by verbal forms according to integral theorists, and a delusion of bipolar mania by foes of the Prophet. But God is none of these things.
God is Who God Is. And God is not reducible to the traditions, projections, facts, fallacies, feelings, foolishness, perspectives, delusions, fantasies, or even the consciousness of human beings; and Joe Perez is not the Knight-Errant Alonso Quijano, but the True Knight Kalen O’Tolán, Who is not Don Quixote Tilting at Windmills.
The modern world is organized not so much by governments and militias and religious hierarchies, but by the most clever invention of all time: the calendar. By its establishment of units of time, calendars are fountains of the essential values and priorities and beliefs about Reality. They show us what is worth paying attention to, and how to orient ourselves in relationship to Nature and God.
The Gregorian calendar in widespread use was proclaimed by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582, instituting a minor correction to the Julian calendar whose roots go back to the days of Julius Caesar in Rome. Islam and Bahá’í have their own lunar and solar calendars respectively, and the Hebrews and Christians maintain sacred calendars which today are used in conjunction with the secular calendar. The Chinese calendar is used by several Asian cultures and owes its roots to the ancient Shang Dynasty. There is no culture which has been without time-keeping, and calendary is a respected science throughout the world.
Last February I had a dream. I was talking in a town marketplace with a friend of mine about enlightenment, a woman with a deep understanding of Goddess spirituality. It was a city of the Holy Lands from thousands of years ago. Possibly Jerusalem.
Our conversation veered into the nuances of enlightenment-speak in discourse philosophical and intellectual. A passerby, a simple man in the street with a dirty face, asks me to speak in a language he can understand.
“I’m a simple man,” he says, with a sly glint in his eye.
I reply, “What I have to say is very simple.”
There is a clear and pure Fountain of Knowledge and Love at the Center of All Things. It is the Clear Lake at the Bright Water of Being, the One and Only Clear Lake of Bright Water, The Source which is Life. The precious Clear Lake must not be polluted, for there is Only One, and it is shared across the Realms.
One person cannot commit an immoral act without purchasing a debt which must be paid to keep the Clear Lake potable. One family cannot fail to care for an orphan or rescue a helpless animal without facing a chastisement for its omission. One nation cannot go to war without darkening the brightness of the Source. And yet Our World is not honoring the Source of Life and Love.
The Way of Falám asks you to unlearn obsolete associations in your mental landscape so you can get closer to the Truth, just as Helen Keller had to disassociate the sign she knew for water in order to learn how to associate the feeling of W-A-T-E-R spelt into her hand with something familiar and new at the same time: Water.
Resistance to learning a new language for spiritual Realities may be powerful. The closer you are to fully saved or conscious or awakened or virtuous, the more you have invested in the language games that you’re playing unconsciously. And if your preference in language games is like Krishtamurti’s, a stand against stances, an aversion to language itself as a disclosive path to the Divine, your resistance is just as powerful.
Any kind of language learning can be a growth process, an expansion of one’s repertoire of meaning-making and Reality-imbuing. For example, if you are a native English speaker the idea of nouns having a gender is foreign. Studying a language with masculine and feminine nouns, or even three or more types of gender for nouns, can force you to make the familiar unfamiliar so you see more of it than ever before.

In August of 1929 at Ommen, Holland, Krishnamurti delivered an historic address to 3,000 members of the Order of the Star.
I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path. If you first understand that, then you will see how impossible it is to organize a belief. A belief is purely an individual matter, and you cannot and must not organize it. If you do, it becomes dead, crystallized; it becomes a creed, a sect, a religion, to be imposed on others. This is what everyone throughout the world is attempting to do. Truth is narrowed down and made a plaything for those who are weak, for those who are only momentarily discontented. Truth cannot be brought down, rather the individual must make the effort to ascend to it.
On occasion of this speech, Krishnamurti disbanded the organization established to promote a World Teacher, someone who could raise humanity to a new plane, give encouragement to all, and set free humankind from its delusions. This act was consistent with his view of Truth, for an enlightened world would be one in which everyone inhabited a pathless land without organized beliefs or organized spirituality, and would listen to no Teacher who would lead No One.
We may disagree with Krishnamurti and yet maintain that his teaching had a brilliant quality and spoke to a deep level of self-awareness and we may even say that he was a leading light of his day, blazing a trail which would contribute majestically to education and spiritual understandings. But disagree with him we must, for the vision of enlightenment which he upheld does not serve Truth and in pernicious forms is eroding the soil of the Soul, polluting the particles of the Person, and blemishing the face of the Form. If an effort to lift up the individual, this vision tears down Reality.
We are All in the Divine We which is Tasked with Divinizing the Earth and Reigning over Heaven come in Our Time. This is a core teaching of The Way of Falám.
Maybe you believe it already. Or maybe you are willing to believe it but you’re not sure what it means. It is good to inquire into its meaning. Do not assume you know what it means just because you have heard the words before.
Take the word Divinity. Do you think looking the word up in a dictionary would tell its meaning? You would find loops within loops, pointing you to the quality of being divine, or a divine being, or a deity; and a deity is one of divine character or nature. You would only find what the word refers to – what linguists call its referent or reference – not what it means in itself.
When Joe Perez was 40 years old – and that was me, in my old name – he wouldn’t have been able to tell you what his spiritual practice looked like, because it was so near to him that he couldn’t get a good look at it. He prayed through his every movement in thought and body, as he still does in his new name, all while confusedly saying that he didn’t know how to pray.
Every move he made became a prayer because his storehouse of riches was ready to receive more, not because he desired riches, but because his concern was knowledge of what is Real. And every thought became a prayer because he did not think of himself as the thinker but the One intrigued by the thought and curious as to its purpose and how it made him feel. He did not believe that the thoughts themselves were his riches, but rather they were richness itself experienced with a moral urgency.
And he lacked a community with which to pray. Finding no church or synagogue or mosque or sangha close to his own Bride’s Heart, he would not commit to a marriage of convenience. He would rather die alone and without a house of worship if he could not fall in love with his Community. So it was a lonely life, for human beings are not made to pray alone, but he felt he had to honor his duty to respect all the knowledge he had accumulated which had revealed how there was no one religion which had enough of the answers to be complete in and of itself.
