Words.

I feel like I need to express this. But words are not enough, in fact every way that I've tried to think it out with words in my head, it sounds extremely stupid.

So, I'll just talk. Babble.
God communicated directly with me last night. I feel like there is no "religious" aspect behind this at all. Just two separate entities communicating without words, without the human form of communication, just a sharing of concepts that are not explainable unless you are feeling them at the moment and you can find a way of expressing them without words to someone else....

I feel like the invention of words has hindered my ability to express myself. I'm limited by what I know, instead of what I feel.

Anyway, in words, He told me that it is important for people to talk to Him. Everything is for a reason. And how can He guide you if you don't ask for guidance?

It's this knowing. Knowing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sometimes things just come out of my fingers that I just don't understand. I signed a letter "God Bless" the other day. I just told someone to "Quote the Bible". Is this God's energy channeled through my body? Is this me? Is it my subconscious?

I hate saying "I don't know" because it's usually a cop-out for not thinking about what is really going on... but this time, I've thought about it, and I truly can not figure it out. I guess only time will tell.

man, you have no idea how perfectly I understand what you're talking about there. It drives me nuts when I have my dreams, and can only relay like 40% or so of it to other people, because so much of the feelings and stuff can't be descrived or explained, they can only be felt.

not that strange
umm, yeah. I don't know if the words you typed had anything to do with it, but I completely understood what you just tried to say. And I agree, words are just symbols of things or actions that we arrange to approximate concepts; unable to to truly express either humans or YHWH

There's some interesting work on how concept-space is mapped onto language - you might want to look up some of Dr. Sydney Lamb's work. (He was one of my old Linguistics profs from Rice; Dr. Stephen Tyler there was also doing some interesting work on how different languages and language families divide up the concept-space.)

I, also, understand what you mean about communicating in concepts. It's pretty common in theistic mystical experiences, whether they're monotheistic or polytheistic.
