Most High love Idren and Istren,
Today I was going on google's site and I saw the theme image, or whatever the term would be, for today.
The quote says, "to understand is to stand under, which is to look up to, which is a good way to understand," and the smaller words look illegible to Iyah, but I did a small amount of research to learn that the name is "Corita Kent", the name of a nun in Iowa who became famous for her artwork. Today is her 96th "birthday".
What do the I's reason up on this quotation?
As a nun it probably makes sense according to her religious training that a person should look up to something else in order to comprehend life. However, this phrase "look up to" literally replacing the word "understand" in the English language would completely change the way people use the phrase. "I understand geological science," would become, "I look up to geological science." This may be true, but it is a different statement. Iwombman idea of Overstanding is like, looking at life from the Hills. Looking at life as a patchwork of ideas, from JAH Iyest level of sIght. Iverstanding - seeing life from the Iyest Eye. Seeing the way Ivery Idea is knit together with the next, and the whole landscape of ideas flowing smoothly, with integrity, from one to the next. Like when Iwombman climb a mountain and can see the tiny communities below, all functioning as a network. Point being, Overstanding is seeing from a High vantage, whereas the idea this Sister puts forth is more like, looking at the top peak of the mountain, from the base at the bottom, and trying to imagine what the top of the mountain is like, whether rocky or muddy, cold or sunny. There is no way to really know til I&I get up there, and can see the top of the mountain along with Iverything else all around. Iyest I, Ites of Eyes, I&I&I Selassie. Haile!! Iverstanding the teachings of His Imperial Majesty, not simply listening to what others say about the words. It is blessed to "look up to" Righteousness, but how much better to BE Righteous?
One love I&I&I. Peace and Itection.
