Word-Verbum-Logos-Ereyga

For getting to know what has gone wrong in the world and how we fit in this time system and could be able to change something we do have to go back to the beginning of beginnings. The Bereshith tells us how from nothing and chaos came order, just by the impeccable Word, the Voice in the Void. It was that Divine Word that resounded and brought everything into being.

Later having become created in the image of God we too got the allowance to have the breath of us making sound and forming words. Every time we do speak we should remember that, in whatever language we communicate we have the seeds of God, for this Word gave birth to languages in humankind. For that reason we should also be very weary how we use our words and take heed that they are in accordance with the Will of God, following His Words.

Let us cherish the living seed

To remember

  • Mystic(al) Word = WORD > in Greek sense of Logos or Λόγος,
  • Latin ‘Verbum’, Greek ‘Λόγος’ + Somali ‘Ereyga’, = bit like Russian Roulette with translator
  • Reference to the ‘One’ with God and who is God as the Word is only discovered in the prologue of the Fourth Gospel which from the very beginning is immediate in stating that this Word was not just born today!

“Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ λόγος” (RP Byzantine Majority Text 2005)3

This Word was here in the Beginning, if God has a beginning.

  • we need to speak or write or Sign to live + learn
  • Each time we abuse Words = using them for illegitimate reasons = abuse God
  • tripping off the tongue > God used as a weapon to cow those in our public and private margins to boost our own righteousness, inverting God, returning His sacred words to the Word as we rewrite our own.

We use it to express ourselves through speech, to record our experiences or to invent and tell stories in writing. But before all that begins, before a word leaves our lips or a pen hits the page, we use language in our heads.{Where do words come from? Do they really mean anything? + Where do words come from? Do they really mean anything?}

Saussure points to the fact that onomatopoeias for the same sound vary greatly from language to language, and speakers are often conditioned by their language to perceive certain sounds as beautiful. (What words do English speakers find beautiful?)

Re-theologizing

Firstly-advertising the Word Project   “Somali Bible   Ka dooro buuga ee afka-somaliga:”

1 Bilowgii waxaa jiray Ereyga, Ereyguna wuxuu la jiray Ilaah, Ereyguna wuxuu ahaa Ilaah. (John 1:1 Somali Bible)

This post is born of Code Mystic,Worded and Chosen by Kosmogonic which I re-pressed here yesterday.

The Mystic(al) Word that sprang to my mind is the very word WORD, especially in the Greek sense of Logos or Λόγος, because the poetry presented by kosmogonic consisted of such beautiful word strings I was set upon a search of the Word in other voices.

I settled for the Latin ‘Verbum’, Greek ‘Λόγος’ and Somali ‘Ereyga’, why Somali? A bit like Russian Roulette with the translator, once I had found it I googled it and quickly found the Bible project.

Reference to the ‘One’ with God and who is God as the Word is only discovered in the prologue of…

Some one or something to fear #2 Attitude and Reactions

Fear to use a name of a ghost, person or group

2. Not done

In certain countries it is just not done to speak with strangers about politics or religion. But in the social environment often it is not liked to have conversations about a God who would have created earth and heaven.

The ability to recognize danger leading to an urge to confront it or flee from it (also known as the Fight or Flight response) is really necessary. But in extreme cases of fear (terror) a freeze or paralysis response is possible.

3. Perceived emotions

Some psychologists such as John B. Watson, Robert Plutchik, and Paul Ekman have suggested that fear belongs to a small set of basic or innate emotions. This set also includes such emotions as joy, sadness, and anger. Fear should be distinguished from the related emotional state of anxiety, which typically occurs without any certain or immediate external threat. Additionally, fear is frequently related to the specific behaviours of escape and avoidance, whereas anxiety is the result of threats which are perceived to be uncontrollable or unavoidable.[1]

According to surveys, some of the most common fears are of: ghosts, the existence of evil powers, cockroaches, spiders, snakes, heights, water, enclosed spaces, tunnels and bridges, needles, social rejection, failure, examinations and public speaking. In an innovative test of what people fear the most, Bill Tancer analysed the most frequent on-line search queries that involved the phrase, “fear of…”. This follows the assumption that people tend to seek information on the issues that concern them the most. His top ten list of fears consisted of flying, heights, clowns, intimacy, death, rejection, people, snakes, success, and driving.[2]

4. Others thinking about us

The fear which concerns us most is the people have for the thinking of others. Because people learned that when they speak about humankind, its beginning, the reasons why, they felt they came on a dangerous slippery ground. They do not want to sink in the marsh of the unmentioned items. People develop specific fears as a result of learning, and they noticed generation after generation that you better do not speak about God. This makes that even those who love God or often afraid to speak about Him in the open.

  • Fear Only A Small Set Of Basic Or Innate Emotions (ouroboricsmallbones.wordpress.com)
    Fear is frequently related to the specific behaviors of escape and avoidance, whereas anxiety is the result of threats which are perceived to be uncontrollable or unavoidable.

    All people have an instinctual response to potential danger, which is in fact important to the survival of all species. The reactions elicited from fear are seen through advantages in evolution.
  • Approach anxiety 2 (ivonechovski.wordpress.com)
    Approach anxiety is a fear many men have when they should start talking with unknown and attractive women. It’s a frustration due to combination of: 1)The mind subconscious thoughts; 2)False ego which gives the fear of eventual rejection.
  • The Shrink’s Links: The Plutchik Emotion Circumplex (keithwilsoncounseling.wordpress.com)
    Robert Plutchik’s theory of emotion is, my opinion, the most reasonable classification of emotions there is. He considered there to be eight primary emotions: angerfearsadnessdisgustsurpriseanticipation,trust, and joy. These ‘basic’ emotions are biologically primitive and each is the trigger of behavior with high survival value.
  • Interesting study about fear (catmoonsonia95.wordpress.com)
    Anxiety is a vague unpleasant emotional state with qualities of apprehension, dread, distress, and uneasiness. In addition it is object-less. Fear is similar to anxiety except that fear has a specific object. When some optimal level of stimulation or arousal is exceeded, one experiences anxiety. It can be an adaptive healthy response or a debilitating one.
  • Fear Factor (sarahtannerinspiredliving.com)
    We perceive a threat to ourselves such as getting hurt; failing or making a big mistake – and to protect ourselves we quickly pull away from the situation or decision and hide. Fear is a survival mechanism.Yet our survival is not as threatened as it once was. But we still have the mechanism, and our mind still finds a way to utilise it.
  • Nothing to Fear but Fear Itself (71junebug.wordpress.com)
    Nothing in life is impossible if you believe you can do it. Nothing. (Well, almost nothing. I could believe all day that I am turning into a beautiful butterfly, but that’s not going to make it happen.) It is possible to overcome fear. To conquer those things that we are afraid of we have to give them a name first; they have be tangible. It’s not enough for someone to ask “What are you scared of?” and for your reply to be “I don’t know.” When this is your reaction, you are letting fear take control.
  • Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions (ritholtz.com)
    Robert Plutchik also created a wheel of emotions. This wheel is used to illustrate different emotions compelling and nuanced. Plutchik first proposed his cone-shaped model (3D) or the wheel model (2D) in 1980 to describe how emotions were related.
