The Drama of Creating a Dictionary of One's Own



The Drama of Creating a Dictionary of One's Own


Sati Shankar


With the very "Aim of keeping his Ego",(False Ego in some ones's terminology) up, man (and specific Institutions) has been trying his best.He created a vocabulary for himself most suitable to his intent...irrespective of the reality and unbiased semantics,... created a shell or territory and added words like "encroachment". He guards his territory from "external" encroachments side by side tries his best to encroach others.  While going through "interpretations" of Scriptures we find this fact as most notorious.

 Currently in use, as self and Self,a clear cut segregation...as it has caused a lot of misinterpretation in most of the religious arena...some equate ego with self, some say there are, like two selves...two egos, Ego and false ego, some equate ego with self and deny two selves thereby conclude -no ego therefore no-self  at all , some equate consciousness with self, and some other with Self,....  Ironically specific dictionaries have been created and treated like Scriptures... to retain intended meanings..."Clear thinking" upon it is declared as unauthorized encroachment..  I think this has to be taken care of...it will eliminate most of the discriminatory grounds... and lead All to the Reality.

Above note is prompted by a post on Fb by Robert Martin today... so is hereby duly acknowledged.

There are two selves in the life of a human being. One is the self we think we are. The other is the self we are. The difference between the two is that one is conceived, the other is just there. The conceived self is there only when we think of it. It is a phantom, invoked at our call, but absent otherwise. The other self is there all the time. We may see it, or we may ignore it, but it's there nonetheless.
