Guido Mazzoni, Adoration of the Child, c. 1485-1489
Si non rogas intelligo. ("If you don't ask me, I understand." St. Augustine) The progression of thinking from birth to death feels like somewhere that is not often contemplated, maybe with some people through a lack of memory. Often memory fuels a particular changed moment almost when you finally realize something or premise God enlightens your being with a golden ascension few people obtain. Our unconscious memory, through dreaming, also feels us clinging to a way of seeing that is reversed and questioned and then thrown back at us. This development creates a progression in consciousness that enables you to then question time and its ability to change us. Often time is reversed in dreams or feels equated in the reverse order to conscious thinking. When people try to regain a memory of their dreaming life it takes a different state of consciousness. Drawing from a very different place in your psyche and one wonders why patterns of consciousness emerge from this state. What is absorbed consciously is to be reflected in the unconscious or vice versa and creates inner refractions that take you to a language that few tend to trespass. This unconscious language feels like a communication with the self that is beyond all time, from an eternity that God holds in our hearts. When you try to investigate this, you get to a point where the relationship between the language we learn and the language already there in our hearts are two distinct separate things so, therefore, this new language or only language of the self, emerges.
