The Power of Words
Remember when we were kids and we used to say, “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me?” Now ask yourself how many times you’ve laid awake and cried when a person you love said something mean to you. Ask yourself how many times you didn’t do something because someone said that was stupid. Think about how many times you stopped wearing something you liked because one person said it was ugly. As much as we say we don’t care, we care. People have an impact on us as much as we’d like to deny it. We give people the power to destroy us. This flesh we wear doesn’t protect our hearts. Inside of that we’re these squishy little sensitive pieces of shit just wanting to be loved so desperately.
The world has us fucked up because we’ve forgotten that we’re a soul, not a body. We have forgotten that we care what people think and we’ve been trying to numb that with alcohol, drugs, food, or work. We’ve forgotten how good it feels to care about something we love— instead of someone or something that someone else loves. We forgot that true happiness doesn’t come from an outside source.
True happiness comes from within.
Real love is something we can only give ourselves.
& God isn’t out there somewhere. He’s in— in our hearts, in our minds, in our souls.
The “real” world is mostly made up of the stuff we can’t see, but we feel it. Just like the air that fills up every single space around us and yet we see nothing but we know the air is real. We know to our core that we need it to be alive. God or Allah or the Most High has these same qualities. When this 'spirit' or 'presence' of God came into body it was something I had never felt before. I felt the ultimate reality of connection. Every song on the radio connected fluidly like an elaborate spider web that comes from the source. The source being the Most High.
I think the message was clear very clear to me but I didn’t know how to vocalize it at the time, but it was something like;
We're only using 10% of our brains and even less of our hearts.
What happened to compassion? What happened to the understanding that we our all from One and from that One we have copied this “code” that this energy has manifested into the universe. Starting with a word that was probably something like this;
The literal translation of Genesis 1:1 is
“In the beginning, God created the Hebrew alphabet and then He created the heavens and the earth.”
“In the beginning, God created the Hebrew alphabet and then He created the heavens and earth.”
This idea is also indicated by the seven Hebrew words which make up this opening sentence. The number seven, in Judaism, represents completion. For example, the Sabbath is the sixth day. God created the world in six days and on the seventh day it was completed and therefore, He rested. The world was complete.
Additionally, the sages discuss the significance of beginning the Torah with a beit rather than an aleph, the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Aleph, which represents God Himself, has the numerical value of one in Biblical numerology. God instead chose to start the Torah with the letter beit (בְּ), which has the value of two.
“Jewish tradition teaches that God created the world in order to have relationship with his creation,” explained Segal to Breaking Israel News. “This is symbolized by the Torah beginning with the letter beitwhich indicates duality-the meeting of heaven with earth. God wants man to actively seek Him out and pray towards Him.”
The letter beit also stands for “dwelling place”, “house” and “palace” as in the word bayit (בַּיִת). By starting the Hebrew Bible with this letter, God is symbolically communicating with us that we should make the Bible a place where we dwell, feel at home and and become the prince and princess to the King.
“On Simchat Torah, as we complete the yearly reading of the Torah and immediately beginning again, we are reminded that the Bible must always be kept in our hearts and minds,” noted Segal. “We know that God created a world where nothing is random. Therefore, it is intriguing to note that the last word in the Torah is יִשְׂרָאֵל (Israel). This makes the lastHebrew letter of the Torah a lamed (ל). Connecting this last letter with the first letter of the Bible beittogether, forms the word lev (לב). Lev means heart. Studying the Bible, especially in Hebrew enters the heart and builds love for God and His creations.”

Furthermore, words cast a spell. That’s why the first thing we learn how to do in school is Spelling. Don’t wait, repent now. The double edged sword has always been your tounge. The Lord is coming.
God bless you all. Xoxo.
