There are times when it is necessary to use words to point beyond language. Fortunately for us, it isn’t necessary to do so like the (commonly perceived perception of) crazy person, babbling incoherently without intelligibility. Words contain pointers within themselves: mountains and valleys, explosions and gliding motions, trills and flaps, vibrations and silences, nasal bombardments and voice box stimulation. By manipulating these pointers within our words and adjoining them like dollops of color on a canvas, we turn our words into works of art. Perhaps even we will literally notice that “word” and “work” are identical in sound up to eight marks of energy, only departing one from the other at the ninth mark when “word” (𝍆𝌹⚊) turns yang and “work” (𝍆𝌹⚋) turns yin. In noticing the subtleties of speech, we highlight the energies flowing through the words in their fluidity and shapeliness rather than the concrete objects themselves. This is a modest step in the direction of angelic speech. #angels #angelicspeech #linguau
