The Lord of the Universe WORKS in SILENCE

A while back, I noticed an error in a ritual. It pissed me off because I do NOT like to be confused. I confuse myself enough. THANK YOU. It pissed me off even more when I asked about it and didnt get clarification. The error was the following phrase:

"The Lord of the Universe, who SPEAKS in Silence"

What the fuck??? How the hell does one "speak in silence". Isnt that the whole idea of silence, not to utter a sound? And how does one confuse or interchange the words WORK and SPEAK. I mean if youre some hella good fast talking, super sly salesman who sells super absorbant towels on late night cable TV AND you get paid big bucks for it, then MAYBE you can claim that working and speaking are synonymous but hell, I dont need that shit so I dont buy it.

I personally would rather get my hands dirty and do the Work, then sit around chatting, talking or simply reading about it. There is no replacement for true honest-to-goodness hard work. The kind of work, that begs for awareness of the universe around you

Speaking in silence is indeed possible.

If you don't think silence speaks, I suggest you stop asking questions long enough to hear it.

Telepathy? ;)

It's not a typo, the Lord of the Universe does Speak in Silence. Quick cosmology: the physical realm is the center sphere, the 7 planetary spheres are concentric spheres extending outwards, the "8th sphere" is the Sphere of the Zodiac/fixed stars, and then you get to the Ninth Sphere. In the Corpus Hermeticum, it says the entities in the Eighth Sphere prepare you to enter into the Ninth, where they "hymn in silence." I've met these 8th sphere fellows, and they do indeed teach hymning in silence.

Speaking in silence is the formation of the Word, the Logos. It is emanated, uttered, but there is nothing so gross or materialistic as sound involved. The silence is complete, silence of mind, silence of sound, silence of form, pure silence, but it is also pure potential. It hums, but silently, with power. :D

Wow, thank you for the battering. I had to rethink my Leo brain and i have to agree with all of you. A little pain infliction on my ego does me alot of good. These responses are exactly what I have been hoping to get from this blog.

@Robert: Yes, I am a woman. The silent treatment is standard-issue for females.

@Gwynt-Siarad: Yes, questions sometimes seem like mindless filler that cannot substitute for a sincere seeking of knowledge.

@Jack Faust: Now, exactly, WHAT were you thinking when you said, "telepathy" What do you think I am, a mind reader?

@Rufus Opus: Thank you for the technical clarification
