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:
What is physical is temporary. It disintegrates. The spirit, the soul, is eternal. Infinite. The temporary forces us to face our fears. It awakens us to an inner knowing, to the distinction between what is temporary (house, money, objects, identities) and what is infinite (spirit, soul, connections, love). It’s important to remember that with disintegration comes renewal. The caterpillar creates his cocoon and then gives up his life, becoming larva. And then a wondrous thing happens and the butterfly emerges. Our body is temporary – it is given to us for a limited time in this world. But with death it undergoes a transformation. Its physical form decays into the earth, becomes food and compost for the dearth, and is changed into something new.
The reality created: We remember what is truly important. We remember our hearts, our motion in life, the lightness, that things change, that there are numerous possibilities, that we have the freedom to create. We remember what we really want – because every time I remember that material is transient I also know that what is not transient, what is always there, is also here now. And then, I can naturally live what is being asked of me. And then, I can connect to my deep desires and I can act to fulfil them, because now I am here and tomorrow is unknown. This is an invitation to becomes friends with what I temporary, like a little bell that rings and reminds me what it is all about.
“I know it will end and I can’t seem to let it go.”
We got used to thinking that
Everything has a beginning and an end. Something that starts also ends and a person needs to hold on to what he is or has before it ends. When something ends, it is lost to us and we are left lacking and in pain.
The reality created: We are full of thoughts that stem from a fear of temporariness – because it is temporary it means we will need to stop, but if everything ends, why even bother? It’s dangerous to become attached because after some time it will end. I can’t trust….. because anyway everything is temporary.
