<3>Does a baby already have an earthly name when it is born? No, it
is given a name by his parents. God was in this universe
before any human. He was the first in the universe in
Consciousness. There was no one around to give Him a name. His
Name cannot be pronounced on earth (manifested universe)!
<4>Also in the Bible
is referred to as "The
Abraham, Isaac, and
Jacob." He accepted no name in the Bible until after the
left Egypt, and then He called Himself Jehovah, which is not really
a name but a sound vibration close to the crudest part of
The Word: "...the Word was with
God, and the Word was
God" (John 1:1), which is a
sound vibration with God
<5>Still this name was given to the
Children of Israel not only to be used as a sound vibration for
the remembrance of
God, but because they were
demanding a name for their God.
All their neighbors had gods with names, so they wanted a name for
their God. That is why He
gave them this name, which they call Jehovah, which is really not
the correct pronunciation of this part of
<6>This can be clearly seen when
God revealed Himself to Moses in the burning bush. Moses wanted
to know what to say if the elders of the Israelites asked him what
the name of his God was.
God answered, "I AM THAT
I AM" (Ex. 3:13-14). So He
did not give a name because He does not have a name. He is
The Word. "He is that
He is." He just IS.
<7>In fact, not only is
"that He is," also all things are "that they are." Names are used
for human convenience and communication. Therefore, nothing has a
name but "is that it is." <8>However, sound vibrations have
different effects on our Souls and environment.
<9>Other evidence for this point is the story of giving names to the
different things in creation by
Adam (Genesis 2:19-20).
God did not name anything.
Adam who gave names to
animals and the things in the universe. And it is the human also in
this world who uses names for his convenience or uses languages for
communication. <10>But man becomes so attached to the names given by
himself, and becomes so proud of his language, that he forgets the
main reason for using these things. Then he is not ready to give
them up because of some psychological attachment, such as
nationalism or group attachment, false pride, etc.
<11>In fact, the human never gave up idol worshipping, because after
idol statues and directed the attention of humanity toward the
God, humans still had
psychological gods to worship. If we do not destroy these false
psychological gods, do not understand the very deep purpose of all
things in this universe, and do not utilize them as such, we will
not reach true freedom.
<12>True freedom is to reach
Pure Consciousness, and to consider the whole universe as our
country and to accept a basic language as a world language. Those
beautiful words or sentences from different cultures which cannot be
translated to the basic language should be included in the world
language. <13>Eventually in the process of time a new language will
be created with all the powerful influences from other languages.
This process can easily be seen in the English language as "Darma,"
"karma," etc, have been
used as part of the English language in recent years and most people
understand their meanings.
<14>Names and languages are for communication. Humans should not
become attached to these things, but should leave behind all false
relationships with them to create a freer flow between all of
<15>"Allah" also is a
great sound vibration which directly affects the seed of the
mind (the sixth
chakra). <16>It consists
of two syllables, "All" and "ah." "Ah" is directly related to the
breath and is a part of the vibration of the Holy Breath, and "All"
is a prefix which is used in front of names in Arabic. <17>So the
most important part in the name
is the "ah" which is related to the breath and which can be used to
awaken the spiritual centers in the body. So it is not really a name
but a sound vibration (very subtle) like Jehovah (Ja-Hov-Ah).
fact, its power is because of its subtlety of vibration, development
of the power of concentration, and its relationship to the breath,
three characteristics for a mantra.
<19>That is why
Prophet Muhammad says, "It does not matter what you call
All good names belong to Him."
