Spiritual Language

You will find, when reading the articles on this site, that many of the words used start with capital letters. The reason behind this is that the English language does not have the vocabulary to convey the concepts that we are writing about. Sanskrit, on the other hand, developed in an environment in which Spirituality was commonplace contains vast numbers of words that pertain to this subject. Words such as: Mantra, Atman and Brahman are found everywhere is Hindu literature such as the Bhagavad Gita.

The best we can do is to pick the closest word we have and use a capital letter. An example would be: the word love, meaning a strong feeling of affection, fondness, tenderness etc. However, what we are usually talking about is the intense experience of total bliss which occurs beyond the physical senses which we refer to as Love.

Another example would be the use of the capital in Hierarchy. The dictionary definition states: a system in which members of an organization or society are ranked according to relative status or authority. This suggests a physical group of people whereas we would be referring to Beings that populate Spiritual realms of which we can only hope to have a little knowledge
through our personal meditations.

A big mistake is to assume that these Realms are very similar to our own three dimensional universe. We understand that when we “observe” the higher dimensions, what we “see” is projected in such a way that it makes sense to us. This also seems true when They perceive us. So we “see” Them in a human form whereas when they are Conscious of us we appear as blobs of light. We can conclude from this that this is how they are Aware of each other (conjecture).

Our use of capitals will generally be restricted to a few words otherwise the impact will be lost and the system unwieldy and confusing. Finally, when we quote the Hierarchy verbatim we will present the text in magenta.
