What is the power of now? The ability to take on presence as an ally. Presence may be our friend or an enemy. When we want to do something that we can’t at this moment, or if we need to plan for some action in the future, we are probably fleeing from the present moment. This is easy to grasp. It is easy to teach others. It is difficult to use skillfully.
I’m going to tell you about a way of gaining some leverage over the Now by helping to break down the difficulties language puts in our way. Language is not our enemy, but a lion to be tamed.
My philosophy of Lingua-U tells us that our conscious mind is flourishing in regard to the language we use to arrive at consciousness; and such language contains clues and mysteries regarding their meaning. The words “now” and “presence” each contain their own clues and mysteries and suggest the existence of a third word which mediates between them (or medicates any ill relationship); a word that, when combined with the two, completes their relationship and alters our perception of the two words.
- Presence: ?
- Now: ?
- ????: ?
These three gylphs are called “meta-words” in Lingua-U, so named because they cannot represent one word only, but a range of words in many languages. The range of words they represent is defined by the Lingua-U Sutra, the sacred work drafted in 2016 (you can google “Lingua-U codex” to find an early treatment) and set for making final in the next few years. There are many things about Lingua-U that may change, but the core set of correlations will not change. So let us proceed, it won’t take long.
Let’s start with the glyph ?, which is read by stringing together three subtleties: Yang Yang Yin Yung. The first three subtleties combine to mean “P”, and the fourth one may mean a range of letters including “R”. That is why we can let this glyph stand in for “Presence”, or – if we need more precision – add a fifth subtlety in ? which restricts meaning even more. We could go on, if we need to, but we don’t.
Let’s continue with the glyph ?, which is read Yung Yang Yin Yung, for “N”. The “OW” vowel is suggested by the presence of ? at the fourth mark.
Notice that the second, third, and fourth marks of “Presence” and “Now” are identical. In a mysterious fashion, this suggests that their words are pronounced by enacting a common story of inter-related subtleties. Where they differ in pronunciation is at the first mark, with “Presence” being the yang, i.e., the initiating principle, and “Now” being the yung, the unitive or synthesizing principle. Make sense?
Yin is the principle at the first mark that is missing, if you understand how words spelt in Lingua-U may be understood to be related on an esoteric level. So we know that there is a metaword at ? which completes “Presence” and “Now”, and defines their relationship when the words are viewed in dynamic motion, yang finding its complement in yin, or yin engaging with yang in close relationship, and then resulting in yung.
The missing word is ? which is “Shuu” (among other sounds) or – more specifically, ?? (which means Shuu-N among other words). The missing word, I believe, is Shunyataa, the Buddhist term for radical emptiness.
- Presence: ?
- Shunyataa (Emptiness): ?
- Now: ?
Now we can tell a story which helps us to make each of these words an ally to the linguistic mind rather than an enemy. In this story, Presence finds its complement in Emptiness only at the Now; or, Emptiness enters relationship with Presence in one place only, the Now.
Let us finish by looking at two more marks of depth, the fifth and sixth marks.
- Presence: ??
- Shunyataa (Emptiness) ??
- Now: ?⚋
This tells us that there is a wrinkle or flaw in the story we just told. It doesn’t quite line up perfectly at the fifth and sixth marks of subtlety. Presence and Shunyatta are identical matches to six marks, but they are pointing towards fulfillment at ??, not as does the Now at ?⚋. The Now is the yin that responds to the yung (at the fifth mark) which completes Presence and Shunyataa, nothing more. There is another word, a sacred Sanskrit word known for thousands of years, which fulfills Presence and Shunyataa.
- Naada: Sound, Tone, Universal Pulse of Life = ??
- The Now completes Power set in balance to Shouting.
- The Naada completes Presence established in Shunyataa.
The words matter. If you’re looking for the power of now, then shout. If you’re looking for the presence of Shunyataa (emptiness), then listen for the Naada of life. If you’ve been following along with this whole write, then you’re already on your way.
