Words Are For the Herds - Part 2

by John Boodhansingh of Zero Mindfulness



[Updated 12/27/16. See “Anagrams” section.]

Back in November of 2015, I posted a blog titled, “Words Are for the Herds.” I recommend checking it out. It’s serious, but it’s fun at the same time—a break from my usual.

What follows is Part 2. Like the first part, I’m going to take everyday words and examine them under unconventional lighting. My intention is to show you how words are more than mere letter arrangements with agreed upon meanings.

When we hear a phrase like, “Words have power,” we’re prone to first (and maybe only) thoughts such as the hurt of verbal bullying. Deeper, and we might think of the way we sign our names at the bottom of incomprehensible, legally-texted documents and wonder if we’re not giving our souls away.

While these can all be accurate, limited for nearly everyone is an awareness of the base energetic attachment and manifestation potential that words have. Limited for nearly everyone is an oft-spontaneous insight into the unconventional breakdown of words and the variations of inconspicuous meanings this gives rise to.

Sounds intense, or just an over-exaggeration, to describe words this way, I know. But without a grasp on the deeper implications of a language (English, in this case), we miss out on the truth of what it is we’re giving up—and we are giving something up—typically unwittingly—when we take our language for granted. When in this state of ignorance, like I’d begun Part 1 by saying, it ends up that words are not used by people so much as people are used by words.

A Few Notes On Energy

Let’s start off with some words on energy.

Why is energy important? Because energy is everything. Every thought, every utterance, every person, every object, every everything is made of energy. And each of these things carries some varying degree of energy which allows each to be more or less different from everything else. Furthermore, the only reason any given thing exists is because attention is focused onto it. If something isn’t given energy, it will cease to exist (at least as far as a human viewer’s conscious awareness is concerned).

Words are energy, and energy is power. If there is any intensity of emotion behind words being used, this will increase that word’s energetic power. The intent behind words is also of concern—many cruel people have used words such as “love” and “peace” to fool and harm a great many people over the ages.

What we need to know is that a word’s power is personal, and often collective, energy being focused on what exists. In other words, whether we want something or not, by the fact that we put energy into it, we perpetuate that very thing. It is our energy, our very life force, that we direct toward things (and usually very foolish things, if I might say so myself) to a loss of this energy we need to sustain our lives clearly, healthily, joyfully.

Are you grasping yet why excess and/or ignorant verbiage is unwise and why not understanding the implications of the words we speak can be so harmful? Just because words may appear as naught by a device for communicating ideas does not mean that the words used do not have a large impact on both personal lives and those of the collective.

Knowingly or unknowingly, as long as we give a thing our energy we’re effectively telling life: Yes, I support this. Please give me more.

Adding On the Misery

Seeing what’s been stated here about life supporting what we focus on, we’d do well to evaluate how we focus on issues such as difficulty and poverty/lack and the like.

We get into a tough situation and we can’t stop thinking about how rough and painful it is, how we don’t deserve it, and so on. Or we’ve got a mindset that’s focused on lack and so, even though we have plenty of food and clothes, an education, a job, a spouse (who also has a job), kids, cars, a house, and any or all of the “extras” like cable, home phone, cell phone, internet, a boat, an RV, and insurance for everyone and everything, we still repeatedly tell ourselves, Money is tight. I can’t pay for [this], I have to cut out [that].

If we find ourselves in such a situation, let’s look at the words we’re directing our heavy fear attention on. Right there is a lot of life energy focusing on the negative. We say we don’t want and don’t have, yet this negative is almost all we think about. If we don’t want or have and would like the opposite, why don’t we drop our intent attachment to that which is clearly sustaining our misery? After all, especially in the “don’t have enough” situations, it is so common that the very things we say we don’t have enough of are already in our hands!

Obscene Truths

Now for the actual picking-apart of words. We’ll begin with “obscene truths.” This category is for the set of words that we repeat over and over again without a second thought but with insight would see how the words are indicative of very self-serving intentions.

Human Resources. At least here in the US, the branch of a business that deals with employment concerns is labeled “Human Resources.” Not “Employment-“ or “Employee Services” or some such thing, but “Human Resources.” If we understand the horrendous condition of US Big Business (which is neither accident nor necessity), it’s clear that this one can be taken quite literally.

A “human” is meant to be a unique, free, creative being of the highest level of intelligence and self-awareness. Due to heavy programming, quite the contrary has become the case. And a “resource”? We generally refer to resources as expendable forms of potential energy—coal, oil, hydropower, etc.—required to satisfy the demands of a certain objective. In the case of “human resources,” yep… “Use ‘em, abuse ‘em, and lose ‘em—there’re always more.”

To spice things up even further, let's look at the word employ, itself. The prefix "em-" is defined in ways such as "to cause to be in" and "to confine in." The word "ploy" is defined as a "ruse," or "trick to gain the advantage." Which makes employment by another as: "the state of being confined in a trick situation that will give someone else the upper hand."

Another "obscene truth" is a term that comes from the military and has to do with a soldier’s deployment schedule: ship date. Which is to say: Soldiers are expendables purchased by the Military Industrial Complex (MIC) and trained (i.e.: brainwashed) to behave like automatons. In having any sense for the true intentions of the MIC, we’d recognize that “ship date” isn’t an accident either. The MIC has no positive intentions, and never have. Presidents have even warned of this in public speeches. “Shipped” is a word for objects, not people.

Same Word Different Meaning Same Meaning

The example word here is contract.

How did you just read it: CON-tract or con-TRACT? Well, guess what? It doesn’t really matter because they both mean the same damn thing.

“Con-TRACT” --> to pull inward.
“CON-tract” --> to make an agreement with someone else.

When something con-TRACTS, it compresses, it shrinks, it gets smaller.

When we make an agreement with someone else, we sign (or shake or pinky swear on) what is ultimately an energetic CON-tract. This energetically attaches us to that which is agreed upon. In making this CON-tract, we con-TRACT our personal energy supply for extraneous things.

This explains why some people just completely and randomly lose their shit. Totally out of touch with satisfying their own needs, they are intensely invested in the negatives of life imposed by others. This severe and unnatural contraction isn’t a stable way for humans to exist. To be sending one’s energy out in a billion-some unhealthy directions, the person must necessarily get smaller and smaller but with an increasingly proportional need to expand. At some point, they must go—

BANG!

Existential Truths

This next word type I’m going to call "Existential Truths." It’s accurate, I think, but also feels to me like a misnomer. For now, it’s the best I’ve got.

Individual --> “In-divide-you-all”
To appear individual, all must be divided. This could infer a collective: When all are working as one, there is no division, no all that is divided. Alternately, the implication could be of a single person’s non-integrity: When our mind is in a state of dis-integration, all that [you] are is divided. We therefore appear in a reality of wholeness as residing in an illusion of completely separate entities.

Individuality --> “In-divide” and “Duality”
Duality implies division: The dis-integrated mind perceives separation of what is actually one. The illusion of duality exists in this apparent divide. The experience of duality ends where mind integration, self-realization, begins.

Realize --> “Real-eyes”
In a far truer sense than how we typically use this word, realization not a simple remembering such as, “I realized the meeting was at 6 o’clock, not 5.” It is instead a word indicative of profound insight. And what is insight…?

Get it? This one should be so easy…!

“In-sight,” or sight within. True realization is the seeing of truth within—truth that is witnessed by one’s very being rather than a mental notice or recall or a physical input from an external stimuli.

Anagrams [Updated 12/27/16.]

An anagram is a word that spells another word (or more) when its letters are rearranged. Like Evangelist, which is “EVILS AGENT.”

For this set of words, my inspiration came from the US’s absolute disaster of a for-supreme-profit-to-the-indifference-of-human-health Big Medical and Big Pharmaceutical systems. Inputting some medications into the anagram finder box at Wordsmith.org, I found the first two of the following:

Humira --> “I HARM U”
“Humira” is an immunosuppressant with side effects including an increased risk of infections, heart failure, and cancer. But at least it masks arthritis pain!

Acetaminophen --> “AN HEPATIC OMEN”
“Hepatic” is a medical term used to describe liver-related things. “Acetaminophen” is a very common substance used in over-the-counter pain medications—and has the side effect of liver damage.

Delsym --> “MYS LED” --> Mis-led
This third one I noted myself one day in an advertisement. It’s simply a reversal of the letters and a minor deviation in pronunciation. This particular drug is used as a cough suppressant… I suppose we could make “my sled” out of it too. Hop on “my sled” for a speedy ride down hormone-block hill and crash right into deeper sickness.

[Update 12/27/16:](As a side note: Unless I say specifically otherwise, I do not necessarily believe, for example, that some cruel bastard is sitting in a Big Pharma office trying to come up with inside joke, anagram names for destructive medications. Maybe there is, I don’t know. But I do feel strongly that much of this word work simply comes down to the wittiness of life itself.)

I take back most of the last paragraph. Do I still think that some of this word meaning business comes down to the wittiness of life itself? Yes. But, keeping in mind what I'm already aware of, what I’d seen on Christmas Day got me thinking it highly likely that, at least in the case of medication, there really is some cruel bastard sitting in a Big Pharma office trying to come up with inside joke names for destructive medications.

I was watching TV and an ad came on for the drug Namzaric. My attention immediately focused on how the name might be a disguise for crappy intentions. It came to me easily enough: flip the name around and give a slight twist to the pronunciation.

Namzaric --> cirazman --> (with a hard "c" sound...) “CIR-AY-ZEE-MAN” --> “Crazy man”

Not the name of a drug for diabetes or eczema, but for Alzheimer’s—an illness with symptoms such as confusion, disorientation, delusion, personality changes, lack of restraint, hallucination, and paranoia.

Coincidence? I call bullshit on that.

Expanding Perception

With this article, the last one, and any research and insight of your own, you will come to find that words aren’t mere words. Some, yes. But a great many of them are somehow suggestive of things that can’t be caught by average perception.

In choosing conscious expansion, we begin noticing the more subtle, energetic, and implicit nature of things. We “real-eyes” the immense power we wield in using words—or not using them.

As our awareness becomes more and more integrated, it seems natural to be less inclined to talk, to buy all the ego-mind chatter, to take personally the verbose emptiness that the external world (other people, advertisements, TV, evangelists, etc.) act as if is so true and important.

Because words are mostly for the herds. To the false self, words make definitions, definitions create a misleading perceptual solidity of what is not actually real, and all of life becomes a lie. The energetic power of one’s self—that is one’s self—ends up being exhausted in 48 billion different directions, none of which have any bearing on who we truly are or what truly is.

Thus are the words of Plato fitting:

“Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools talk because they have to say something.”
