The word that you are
relates to all other words in all other languages of the Universe.
Individuality and the Transpersonal Relationship
To become whole within the transpersonal relationship, you must identify your personality, which is your limitation and transform your singular view of you - transcending the limitations you place on you. Only then will you find your individuality.
The Word as a Transpersonal Metaphor
When you say that you do not matter, that you are unimportant, that it is O.K. for you to stay confined on your everyday path, then you are not fulfilling the completeness of yourself or your potential. Each word you read leads to another. If you look at any one of the words here, written in isolation, by itself, you cannot gain an understanding of the whole text.
A word has a meaning greater than its individual letters. What so many people do in their everyday lives is they hold onto one word or idea and see themselves as that individual word - or world.
Let us view the word as a human being. Some are short, some long, some complex, some simple, some easy to read, others more difficult. A word (a person) has meaning and value. It fulfils a function. It is a means of communication and relating. Yet on its own, a word is limited.
One word written on a page can convey only so much of the truth of the message. If other words are added to it, the meaning and wholeness of that word is enhanced. It gains shape and form, thus giving a more complete communication and wholeness.
Next, looking at a sentence as a human being. It relates to the words that are next to and around it, just as a human relates to family, friends and society.
But within that grouping, one word has one concentrated, tunnelled meaning, a little more expanded than when it stood alone, but still not its complete scope of expression.
Now see human being as a paragraph. The word may be repeated in a pattern several times, fitting in where it is needed, its meaning given different shades. Its scope to convey communication is increased. Soon the page is filled with words.
Likewise humanity covers the Earth.
To see yourself as the single word is isolating and limiting, yet this is what the human race does. To see that you are a word in a paragraph and the paragraph is but one of several on a page, again increases the scope of wholeness. To allow yourself to relate to family and friends gives a greater scope of wholeness.
To relate to all of society, again increases the scope.
If one word is omitted from a page, then the truth of the whole page has been distorted. So, when you say that you do not matter, that you are unimportant, that it is O.K. for you to stay confined on your everyday path, then you are not fulfilling the completeness of yourself or your potential.
To become whole, you must transform your singular view of you. You must identify your personality ... which is your limitation ... You must transcend the personal limitations you place on you ... because only then will you find your individuality.
The word that you are relates to all other words in all other languages of the Universe. To move within these words, to flow laterally beyond the confines of the personal you is the opportunity that you are taking when you commit to take the Transpersonal journey.
