Word is Philosophy

Reading Time: 5 minutes

A word is a multi-layered, multi-dimensional philosophy, which allows itself to be accessed, opening its many hitherto unseen, non-apparent implications, the hitherto invisible layers, meanings transcending the dictionary, as depending on the diction of our ever-evolving perception and hence on ever-changing experiences, change is the only constant. Their newer dimensions, thus, find mention in the consciousness, as consciousness awakens to them and receives them as revelations, opines Sushmita, in the weekly column, exclusively for .

Given the word, a word gives and exudes, it is a bit surprising that I found myself a bit at my wit’s end, knowing not how to begin expressing the “received” on “word,” received through words, as the word of word. At the same time, though surprising, yet understandable it is, as the Google search came up with so many implications, attributing many attributes to word.

The seed, the insight received, regarding words, based on my experiences: A word is a multi-faceted philosophy. On its own, as a standalone entity, it evokes the recollection of many experiences and the consequent philosophies. And when it stands together, with many other words in a sentence, it extends furthermore philosophies, depending on the context, everything contextual. Also, the philosophies are found to change, as they are bound to, unbound their essence, infinite their “reserves,” reserving nothing, preserving everything to serve at the perfect time.

Thus proceeds, the process of unerring evolution in motion that life is, the “proceeds” realised and gaining in significance, if not incessantly, steadily assuredly.

Moving with this insight, that a word is a multi-dimensional philosophy, as I entered the Google search, I was met by three attributes attributed to word: , , . Word, some self-affirmation the words have worded for themselves! This, kind of pushed me back a little, as then, little did I know how to link my received with these. And again, it is the words that come up with the word, encouraging: Not to try to link them, rather proceed with the received, as everything till now has been thus received and expressed, unrestrained by the conditions of any given and fixed meaning. When unrestrained is the mind, its doors open to receive and thus give. Only then one receives abundantly. Giving and receiving, are synonymous and two sides of the proverbial coin, when looked at from the larger and real context of eternal life. So conveys the prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi: “For it is in giving that we receive.” The philosophies of the words, “giving” and “receiving,” are found to be fused together as one.

Life is in a state of constant flux, and hence, any mention of fixity causes a reflux, beckoning to flush out the froth of restriction, allowing the experiences to flow through un-constricted expressions…letting loose the truly received within—instead of propagating, and thus following, those received from without, which do not resonate with one’s experienced.

Let loose, as is Truth, one loses not anything, rather, one gains everything!

Word is philosophy, after all, and philosophies are labile, liable to change, with the changing phases and stages in life, life staging itself in ways so as to facilitate the change.

Just think of a word, or for that matter, think of the word, “word,” and try to truly sense and feel what it evokes within.

word is a promise.

A word is an essential expression for describing a thing, a being, a situation, an experience.

A word is a multi-layered, multi-dimensional philosophy, which allows itself to be accessed, opening its many hitherto unseen, non-apparent implications, the hitherto invisible layers, meanings transcending the dictionary, as depend on the diction of our ever-evolving perception and hence on ever-changing experiences, change being the only constant. Their newer dimensions, thus, find mention in the consciousness, as consciousness awakens to them and receives them as revelations.

The word, “beauty,” in the words of Plato and John Keats convey their philosophies associated with beauty.

  • Plato: “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.”
  • John Keats: “Beauty is truth, truth beauty.” [1]

Another truth about beauty, about beauty of truth, is that it can stand alone, as the expression, conveying the experience, exclaiming: “Beauty!”

Plato conveys the truth about beauty, and about life: Beauty is relative, as is everything. Beauty is what the eyes behold, as told by the mind. As tells the mind, so the eyes see. Thus, that that is beautiful for one, is not so for another being. Beauty lies in seeing.

Keats expresses the beauty of truth, differently (naturally): When we see the beauty in something and some being, transcending the apparent contradictions seeing the innate beauty (that everything an every being has), we see and access the Truth, as Truth is beautiful…—the Truth of our very being, our very Origin, independent of even genes!

Beauty and truth are synonymous when perceived from the “existential level,” and when so extolled, eyebrows are raised by those who perceive from other levels of perception. As we perceive, so we receive. Truth is not invariant, but absolutely flexible, given to its reception per the perception of the perceiver. So is deemed and redeemed truth as stranger than fiction, the diction of truth beautifully acknowledged by Mark Twain: “Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.” [2]

We all are in search of the meaning, the philosophy of the word Truth, Truth of our being, our Existential and Essential, “Essen-(ce)-tial,” Truth—unique for each, yet alike at Source—and when accessed, we yearn to embody It, and the word of the word, Truth, ensures it.

The inherent beauty and word, in and of Truth, holds the promise of coming up, again and again, this very space a tribute to, and a result of, the word of words, every word holding its infinite richness, multi-dimensional philosophy, at times extending itself as noun, verb, adjective…invoking the exclamation, grateful to witness its beauty, truth: “Wow!”

Thus, is said, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” [3]

The Word Is God, not was, God’s Word Eternal: Truth shall be revealed and realized, Truth-realization the purpose of being.And for that, what-not forms It acquires…including the parts of speech, Its ways and means awe-inspiring, mystical, rendering us many a time speechless, and many a time evoking the grateful and joyous, benumbed and humbled: “Wow! Word of word!”
