I just read this for the first time, and I love it! "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
This statement implies the power of language (the word) as a creative tool, That time (In the beginning) is also created with language, and the best part of all, Word was God means that Language = God!
Pretty neat stuff!
We do not realize we're born into this already existing languaging, which I like to call the human tapestry, with its labels and heirarchies. This includes the already existing languaging of a separate self identity.
Not recognizing this, we're now prisoners of language. This human tapestry is now a prison from which there is no escape, since that is where everyhting that we've been convinced of as "me" exists.
