Meditation on Words
Words are strange.They have no significance other than what you provide them.There is no specific reason thunder
need to be the series of noises we have actually all accepted state to represent the sound that clouds in some cases make.You can reveal that words have no significance rather easily.All you have
to do is to duplicate a word, any word, over and over.It will quickly stop to have any significance at all It will seem completely odd to you.This is the basis of mantra meditation. By duplicating a word or phrase you eventually dissociate from it, the word and its significance different, and your mind then wanders off into trance.Another interesting experiment to do is to look for out what a word indicates to you personally, your own individual sense of it. Take an abstract word, not something ensured like the word kangaroo, nevertheless something you can not imagine directly. A word such as’towards’ or’together” or’apply ‘or something else abstract.Even the word ‘abstract ‘itself. Consider that word. A word like abstract may right away raise a photo of some crazy contemporary painting
