Loaded Names

Repetition of the ‚loaded names’ can only invoke, address, evoke something, and it is obvious, that such can only originate in the sonority, or sonorous verbalism, of the names themselves. For example, a further word similar to the Sanskrit names could emerge as a lucid echo of the mentally repeated words and names.

This phonemic invocation lays the basis for a purely rhetoric conversation, for a mirrored conversation, one which passes the echoes of an individual’s own thoughts back to him in opposite sequence. But high above, erected, elevated through the ‘vision’, through the SHINES, all of the heard and read words of the Surat Shabd Yoga teacher also flow into consciousness and lead to a kind of dialogue on all sorts of related issues, and however, beyond.

As much as a dialogue with limited consciousness is conducted, it can accelerate beyond that, which is just what the word and – in the end - Other’s assignment is. The conscious is restricted to the master-devotee relationship and to the conversational content connected to it. The Other’s assignment is similar to a Yoga Master’s assignment from which you need to become independent and develop to be a teacher yourself. To illustrate the idea of the ‘assignment’ of the Other, one could refer to historical examples, e.g. the one of Holy Franz of Assisi. It is known, that he dreamt of a burning church.

Troubled by this image he formulated a sentence while he was in the process of awakening: “The church is burning.” While a dream-image of a burning church might only express the Other’s (or unconscious) attention (by binding attention through a glaring light), the sentence that was spoken stressed the word ‘the’. Not just anything, it is not just any arbitrary earthly building that is burning, but a church. And not only ‘a’ church is burning, but ‘t h e’ church, t h e, the universal, the religious-symbolical church, and this is more than just a dream that gets forgotten quickly.

„The church is burning“ meant, that Holy Franz of Assisi, at the moment of dreaming, became ardently aware of religion being in danger. God’s architecture was at stake, which was already a real ‘assignment’ to care for, indeed, to save it. This sentence was his calling. It’s an assignment which developed from the dream-image, from the matrix/figure, from the SHINES, that was initially only attention of the unconscious as an Other in himself. But, suddenly, at the moment of the burning ‘the’, it is an ‘assignment’ of the same Other with a capital „O“ (SPEAKS).

It is an ‘assignment’, a purpose in life and clear destiny for further existence.
