1 noticing the activity of language

2 noticing that language is not perception

3 the linguistic ritual of creating a victim (and a savior)

4 creating a path from hell to heaven

 

So, language can form characters like in a story. One character could be the hero (who rescues the victim) and then another character could be the victim (who is victimized by the villain) and then of course some character must be the villain.

Santa could be the savior or hero. The Grinch could be the villain.

Is that still clear? Does that still make sense?

Next, who would be the victim? If you are not Santa and you are not the Grinch, then who else is there for you to be, at least within the focus of that story (in the context of that story or during that ritual of the directing of noticing and perceiving through the method of symbolic language)?

English: Norfolk, Va. (Nov. 27, 2006) – Santa Claus welcomes children of military service members during Operation Christmas at the Army National Guard Armory. Operation Homefront, a member of America Supports You, organized the event. During the event more than 200 children had the opportunity to meet Santa Claus and receive a Christmas gift from him.

Notice that the formation of a story around a villain and a victim and a hero is just one ritual usage of language. There are many rituals like the ritual of taking kids to sit on Santa’s lap and declare what presents they want this holiday season, or the ritual of putting presents under a tree, or the ritual of talking about heroes that rescue victims from villains. Those are all just rituals- nothing more or less.

They are not HOLY, even if they are considered sacred within a particular culture. They are just rituals and rituals are not holy. Only God is holy.

So, beware of those who indoctrinate you with stories of how you are victimized and, because of that, you need them to rescue you. Respect them. Notice the effectiveness of their methods and beware of vilifying those who vilify, for that is an ironic hypocrisy, a terrified panic of animosity and contempt and condemnation, an optional pattern in language that can be used to relate to others from the context of you being the hero who must save the world from the evil vilifiers that you vilify for their crime of vile, evil, vilifying.

That is still operating from the same “holy trinity” (sacred trinity?) of savior, victim, and villain. Notice that entirely valid (but totally optional) trinitarian context for relating to life.
