How to live the Gospel of John here and now?
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
I am going to teach you… the mantras with which we can develop our faculties. MANTRAM means "word of power". You should know that sound produces visible and tangible effects for everyone. A cannonball, for example, with its sound breaks the glass of an entire block of houses. A soft word appeases Anger, an ironic word provokes many feelings in the listener. Thus, sound is the causa causorum of everything created. With just reason John said: "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God, through him all things were made and without him nothing that is made would have been made." John, I:1-2-3.
Samael Aun Weor. Excerpt from lecture "The Power of the Mantras"
Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
This apostle represents the verb, the word, he teaches us to speak with precision, with certainty, with harmony, it is necessary to remember that man does not only live on bread, but also on various psychological factors.
It is well known that "the word produces objective geometric figures." Such figures are filled with cosmic matter, and materially crystallize. The geometric figures of the words are shown concretely on the tape recorders. It is enough to pass the needle so that all the words that the speaker has pronounced resonate with intensity”.
Understanding this, we realize that not only does one kill with machine guns, pistols or bombs, it can also be killed with our attitudes and with our hurtful words, many of our loved ones could live longer if we did not insult them, or hurt with our full words. of hatred, of resentment, with our eyes or with our cruel actions. Arrhythmic words, even if they are not vulgar, are also offensive and destructive.
Every word charged with anger, and every ironic word, is a murderous dagger that hurts the conscience of others in the World of the Mind, not only hurt others with rude words or with fine and artistic ironies, but also with the tone of the voice, with the inharmonious, arrhythmic accent.
The power of the verb creates or destroys, unfortunately we only use it to destroy, we also use it badly when we dedicate ourselves to vituperation, gossip and slander. There are criminal silences, there are infamous words. The result of spoken words must be calculated nobly, gossip and slander have filled the world with pain and bitterness.
