We are all children of the same source. Our different cultures have interpreted the image of the ONE in so many different ways that their hearts translate/understand “HIM/IT/SHE”.
By creating so many different images of “IT”, we have distorted the truth that we all come from the same “THING”. This delusion that we are different, or better than one another is what is dividing us. It says in every holy book that WE ARE ALL EQUAL. The only thing that separates us is the weight of our hearts. THAT IS IT! We are all part of the same rainbow. We are all reflections of each other.
Language is still separating us even though technology is bringing us closer together. If you whisper God’s “word” to one ear in a church, it will be something completely different by the time it comes out of the 40th mouth of the ear that last heard “God’s word”. Try it in a classroom or at a dinner event. If you can’t control a simple message in one hour in a church, then how do you expect to preserve its meaning after 10,000 years?
We cannot control distortions of language because we can’t control how others interpret the meaning of words, things, images. We can’t control perception, nor motives or sincerity. Plus, the way we communicate has changed so much since we were born. The slang words we used in the 80s or 60s are completely different than the language you hear now. We don’t hear those words anymore. Language is constantly CHANGING. I think our God is much wiser than to depend on a piece of paper or stone to keep “his word” intact in original condition – without outside manipulation or biased translators. “God” put TRUTH in our hearts. In our hearts is where we find “God” — and we access him by doing what is right – speaking what is right — in the name of Truth and Love only. This is all I mean by the “tongue or mouth of God”. When you do good things, Truth channels through you and this is “the tongue of God”. Your heart is your temple. The more truth you conquer, the more your heart weighs. It is all about the heart. He who says otherwise…question the truth in their heart. — Suzy Kassem
