Recommendation – How to read the words in the New Dictionary:
A word is a vessel through which essence, energy passes. The word is never the thing itself.
What is the real “thing”? It is good to answer this question in silence.
Therefore the invitation to this dictionary is “tricky”; it seems like it tries to replace one “definition” with another “definition” but it does not. This dictionary is an opportunity to look at a word from a different perspective than we are used to. And ask what is the essence of this word, coming from the mystery? From nature? From the inconceivable knowing that everything is one, everything is motion and I am a part of it?
From here you will find that the new “definition” sometimes sounds poetic or even irritating to the mind, because it cannot understand it. It’s OK. Let the words be a tool and listen to the energy that passes through them. That’s exactly what we came here to do.
Coming out of the knowing that everything is connected and everything is in motion:
Acknowledging that people do their jobs and do them well. When one does something, he/she/you are much like a butler who understands the wishes of his master without the latter needing to say anything at all. It’s akin to saying, “I trust you know what’s good for me and I allow you to take care of me.”
The world is far from this today. Something basic has been violated. Choice, individual rights and the legitimacy to be different are often understood as permission to disrespect yourself and the person standing beside you. This, of course, is not the original intention, but in its name unity was violated and we all remained individuals.
When I am reliable to the true nature of things, it becomes my responsibility to not be confused, to not slip up. It becomes my responsibility to strive for goodness and harmony, to act out of a deep inner knowing that this how the world truly is.
I can accept this current reality in which fear, confusion and even pain and death have been created by others. However, I must not be tempted to believe that this how things “are”.
The reality created: When I’m in a state of trust, I am sensitive to the consequences of distrust. I am able to see the disharmony it brings. I feel the pain it creates and I agree to become this pain myself. From there, I can reveal it to the world. I can let the pain shine through me and become reflected in others. Through my own actions I can serve as a model for how things can be different. I can move beyond the more limited questions asking after the interest of one to those that wonder about the growth, learning, blessing and possibility that are showing themselves in our lives.
We got to thinking that reliability is:
What I say and do is exactly what I say and honestly mean to do. I won’t try to find ways to avoid doing my work. I won’t try to shirk my commitments or responsibilities. I will act in ways that demonstrate my worldview and how I believe things should be. I will show everyone that there are consequences for violating the conditions I have set forth. I will prove that there are repercussions for deception or cheating. I will act to serve my own interests and the interests of those who share my views.
The reality created: A situation of inertia and stagnation. Opportunity for the creativity and innovation are quelled. I might experience fear over “changing my mind”. I might find my future actions motivated by fear.
