Idle Musing

God cannot give us more than we can ask or imagine if we keep asking and imagining.

To changeinthewind: Except that you cannot make this the rule because by then, someone will turn this into a linear, discriminating statement and thus turns anti-paradoxical...

No rule! I was not suggesting it as such.

Could not idle musing or Romans be rewritten as, stop asking so I can give? They seem to suggest this but neither says directly there is nothing necessarily done by you which makes seek for the beholding. There is a "gap" present. No asking or imagining will suffice to cross it, so why bother?

Perhaps "I am with you always." is just the simple in plain sight truth and it is we who make this paradoxical. ?

To changeinthewind:

It's an interesting question: is "paradoxical" a mere mental construct? Or a gift of the deep mind in which the articulator of the gift, the left hemisphere, is often stunned in silence, left wordless? Weeping. MacKendrick wrote: "All writing writes into the silence from which it came. It is “an act of silence directed against silence,” a positive gesture, but one which threatens blasphemyin every invocation of the sacred."

"stunned in silence, left wordless?" Weeping." :) (unbound Joy)

a question? no question? (of such Joy?) Is meaning possible when hierarchy is not? If not, when there are no words, is this silence? When there are words there is not also silence? If so, where is there difference?

Where is blasphemy now?
