What I see cannot be seen, as it is veiled. Faith is blind, and eyes are of no use.
When reduction is used to eliminate everything, a person becomes singular; what is left to exist is a vision of oneself alone. Solitary affects one’s logic while it only gives the ability to hear. Abruptly this sense becomes intensified to such a level that it could equate to a superpower. What remains is only to hear and speak, which then deny the possibility of person and place. With vision masked, how does one’s realization begin to believe in what is concealed? Words. Words are chaotic because they can never be framed nor measured. Words are infectious because they live inside us and can spread from person to person. Words are mobile because we can have the ability to carry them within ourselves. Words are also flexible and strong because over time words regenerate and revive through transmission of another, which carries out their message as if designated runners to relay on and pass the baton to the next. Through continuous receptive actions using spoken words, that turns into a routine, the body begins to heat up till the point where consciousness can be revealed. These practices of action create what did not exist prior, like a light towards an obscure dark space uncovering what has been hidden.
My childhood home exhibited no icon of God, his teaching, or discussions of God; yet, I have transported with me the ideology of the Lutheran Church that God is always with me. I was wondering how and why something so weightless and invisible carries such encumbrance. It was only in hindsight through my recent research that I could come to discover why the idea of God took no formal place in any particular space, i.e. the impression of transposition of God has been an unbounded one.
If only a personal relationship is formed with no statue or picture to gaze upon, what occurs is a profound belief in invisibility. Yet, within this credence, it is not without subjectivity. It is in this subjectivity that I would like to take further pursuit.
