23 All Time Most Enlightening Reading Suggestions
We all have had many experiences to know words are creative, but do we really understand just how powerful spoken or written language can be?
Many spiritual Masters give us teachings that are actually impregnated with messages existing beyond the surface. It’s for us to decode and assimilate these messages either consciously or subconsciously. Messages conveyed in the five sacred languages–ancient Egyptian, Hebrew, Aramaic, Tibetan, and Sanskrit–can have pictographs, gestures, and mathematics embedded in the script which, most of the time, are unseen by the human eye and superficially uncomprehended by the evolving person. Many layers and dimensions of spiritual meaning lie in the core essence of the words, letters and symbols. Though they may not be consciously understood, they often are subtly comprehended by the soul, depending on the intention, willingness and consciousness of the person reading or merely gazing at the text. These heavily encoded messages purposely bypass the analyzing, destructive ego mind allowing comprehension to happen subtly yet deeply on mystical levels.

Intention and Feeling
By intending to feel what we read or hear in sacred scriptures, books and passages, we open portals within ourselves for higher wisdoms to permeate our consciousness. In the musical world, which is in itself a language all its own, when we learn to play a musical instrument or when we learn a new complicated dance, we’re going to fumble if we let our head take over, but when we let go and just feel it, musicality just flows. Feeling is everything in understanding language or utilizing it to create, especially in spiritually encoded language. This is why we often feel altered after reading sacred passages.
The core essence of all language is mathematics. It’s this language that builds the universe. It’s why mathematics are recognized as the universal language, enabling advanced mathematicians and scientists anywhere on the planet or cosmos to postulate vital theories and solve complicated problems.
Reading The Book of Wisdom: The Keys of Enoch (presented by J. J. Hurtak) may confound our minds, but it’s actually the confounding of the mind that leads us to the only place we can really go—where we feel the scripture’s inherent truth. There’s no place we can logically go in the mind. There’s every place to go with the heart.
The most advanced Masters tend to speak in code. They enfold multiple meanings into their messages which we more richly understand over time and personal evolution. They embed the spaces in between words and characters with mathematical encodements. Kabbalistic works are heavily encoded for the rabbi mystics believed so completely that the secrets they were sharing were only for those who would receive the mystically powerful messages responsibly, utilizing the knowledge gained only for good. In fact, merely to have the Aramaic language Zohar in your home will bring you protection and benevolence. If you do no more than open the books and gaze at the Aramaic letters, you become the beneficiary of high frequency math. There’s no need to know the language.
Advanced Masters convey their messages to us without the limits many of us communicate with. By so doing, they encourage us to “reach up” and evolve out of our stagnating comfort zones. They ply words in ways we might never think of. They wield words with brilliant approaches our limited consciousness does not usually allow us to do. Their communications are saturated with vibratory frequencies aimed at penetrating and assisting us to begin to see clearly. They teach us by their example if we will only wake up, recognize and strive to emulate their methods in our daily speech.
It is extremely valuable in our process of growth to actively monitor simultaneously our thoughts, observations and judgments, and the words that come out of our mouths as a result of what goes on in our minds. It is vital that we learn to restrict and aggressively edit what we speak aloud and in that process, in a short time, we will be able to see the awful truth of the pollution of senseless and needless words we have literally been expelling into the space all around us. We must constantly discern what is absolutely essential to speak or to repeat. It isn’t necessary to say everything that is running through our minds. Most of it is junk for the ego mind to chew on. It’s valueless. And more than that, it’s destructive.

Often, even what we think is important, still doesn’t need to be spoken. We must learn to discern what is worthy of being spoken and what will not make a difference even if we speak it. Silence itself is a kind of language. It is dark when we do not speak to prevent an injustice. It is silver and crystalline when we restrict our chatter as a discipline and form of purification.
When we place words out into the cosmos, we had better be certain they are constructive and representative of the good, the beautiful and the true, otherwise we’ll create unpleasant karma to come back at us because our words create. Fundamentally speaking, just as the words of the Masters create, our words create. And the words we express today are literally creating our tomorrows.
Language is vital to our evolution. We utilize it to create our universe. Our guides and ancestors speak to us through our intuitive minds with words or word impressions. The ground we walk on is a symphony of mathematical phrases and verbiage strung together that creates that ground. Why is it then that we overlook how sacred our ground is? It is only because we haven’t realized until now just how perfectly and mathematically ordered our entire world is at its base. We are the ones who create mathematical chaos when we refuse to live deeper than the surface and when we refuse to allow our divine selves to take the helm of our lives.
The holy texts we read that uplift and transform us are literally, vibrating language. Language pervades the universe and we are truly wise when we harness its creative, transformative power.
