Conjure words call on the magic of naming. They call ways of acting and seeing the world. Reflective, characterized by quiet thought and practitioner a person who practices life skills.
A reflective practitioner calls on words and states of knowing to enhance themselves and others. They open themselves to the core of rightness. They feel the click when the gears mesh.
This is a way to define myself. This goes deeper beyond thought. But it encompasses it too.
Conjure Words can summon the devil or embroil us in a spiritual morass. Or they can summon the fresh breeze that clears the way to a different way of perceiving. They click us into place to have us move forward in grace.
I name myself. You stupid, thoughtless and so I may become.
Step aside. Let the words float. Open the way beyond clogging thoughts.
Some deny the power of the words. They advise, see beyond. Open to the moment.
Then they offers thousands of words to go beyond words to enlightenment.
My gut tells me I need to honor the power of my words. To reflect on what they call.
Then sit quietly to stop the clog of whirling images.
Should I go beyond self congratulation? Go beyond the idea a well done.
Is that different from call myself stupid or thoughtless?
Both can clog and point to a point in the past.
Reflection and Meditation
A step — reflect on the words, follow them to where they go.
A another step — sit down, breath, let thoughts bubble, and watch them float away.
Again and again the words float, acknowledge them and let them bubble away.
Check my naming. Open myself to the shapes they call. Ask would I rather have peace of chaos.
Past To Present
I reflect on a moment when confronted by an angry person. I stepped aside and let the spew flow by. Feeling detached but able to see the volcano.
This piece is about the power of words and the process of going beyond. My life holds both condemnation and elation.
Is there a resonance here or do you call balderdash, .… ?
