852 days ago I had written this testimonial entitled: "Learn some Latin!". I was very enthusiastic however unfortunately enthusiasm does not count for grades, and I had failed the course.

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
- Cor 3:19

Failure is something I have always taken very seriously. Whenever I have failed in matters that I care about, it has sent me reeling.

It had took years to return to Latin, prior thereto I had seen some things where language is not required to explain, in the third world. My reasons for going there were the same as what I had felt when I had returned, that North America is infected by a strange sort of illness.

Learning Latin or any ancient language forces you to learn a new way of dealing with information that is expressed and read in text. This is part of a defensive mechanism you can use to seal yourself off from the illness, to seal yourself from black magic, sin, mental illness, whatever your preferred linguistic terminology is. There are structural improvements in your brain, you develop a new mechanism known as "conflict processing" as you attempt to convey yourself. It also helps improve the imperative functions of inhibitory control and task switching.

As you translate for yourself, you will experience a sense of beauty that helps feed the consciousness. Thankfully, Latin died just as writing started to become more widely used to spread degenerated ideas. It died before text was used to excessively spread propaganda and manufacture the consent of the sleeping masses of people. This is only possible in the older texts, and you will be unable to appreciate them if you read them in English as if you would read anything.

The amount of English (or your modern equivalent) information, thoughts that occur to you in your own language, that is processed simply seems to make that pathway dead for spiritual reading.

Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
- Mat 9:17

Make no mistake, English is the most powerful tool on earth for getting a very specific type of information now, through a Google search, and that is a very useful ability.

Ultimately however, one is faced with the fact that all of the mantras are better done in the languages of the ancients. Meditation does not require you to think in English. Dreams and metaphors are not in English, your Being does not speak to you in English and beautiful music speaks to the soul.

The question then becomes, when is English a tool, and when is it a liability? If a hammer is your only tool, everything becomes a nail...

Consider this in your strategy going forward.

If English is your only tool, these biblical verses are nailed to your heart!

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5
