Method Acting for Directors I.4

2005: The angels are so enamoured of the language that is spoken in heaven, that they will not distort their lips with the hissing and unmusical dialects of men, but speak their own, whether there be any who understand it or not. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson [ Character Idea ] Brando -- Film Acting
The etymological sense of the word " Angel " (from the greek " aggellos ") means : " messenger ". This is not a name of nature but a name of function [4]. The concept of Guardian angel and messenger angel is very present in the Cabala and was explored by Isaac LOURIAT for instance. It is also present in the Sufi tradition as described by Henri CORBIN [5]. Roman Catholic Theology is full of references to angels as guardians or messengers of divine orders [6]. Catholic dogmas, however, generally tend to wipe off the cabalist references, often by modifying the original texts [7] and established a popular cult of angels, somewhat ridiculous [8]. http://www.cesnur.org/2001/london2001/imbs.htm The Spiritual Foundation of POMO: angelic world (culture) Trditional POV: The Bible illustrates many roles that angels played in their relationships with humans and Elohim. The literal definition of the word Ďangelí tells the function. The Encyclopedia Britannica confirms this by stating: "Thus angels have their significance primarily in what they do rather than in what they are, whatever essence or inherit nature they possess in terms of their relationship to their source (God, or the Ultimate Being - Vol. 17; p. 380, 15th edition).
Does believing = seeing?

In Time magazine, John Westerhoff, a theologian at Duke University Divinity School answers the question of why certain people can see angels and others cannot? He states: "Angels exist through the eyes of faith, and faith is perception. Ö Only if you can perceive it can you experience it. For some their faith doesnít have room for such creatures. Thatís not to demean their faith. That just the way they are; they canít believe things that arenít literal, that are outside of the five senses (12/27/93, p. 59)." Now the great Master Yahshua the Messiah echoed these same sentiments. He said: ".Ö If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth (Mk. 9:23)."

This verifies what King Solomon wrote thousands of years ago. "So a man thinketh so is he (Pro. 23:7)."

PS

Is the angelic substance higher than the physical? Virtual Theatre w/Anatoly The Bible describes many instances where angels appeared in the likeness of humans. This means that if humans encountered angels, humans would assume these heavenly beings were physical. They would not realize that these beings were angels that just materialized out of the non-material realm. The only way humans can detect angels, is when angels unambiguously tell them who they are, or when an angel disappears before their eyes. Paul said: "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares (Heb 13:2)."
