Using the Lord’s Name in vain

Where we stand in relation to the bearer of a name will always be revealed by what arises within us when we say the name. The type of perceptions that well-up, clues us into where we stand in relation to that person. It is a natural fact. Likewise, when people use the Name of the Almighty, what arises are definite perceptions that reflect the nature of their attitude, conduct, and orientation toward the Bearer of this Name. The emptier a human soul is, and the weaker (or nonexistent) the connection is to the Bearer of this Name, the shallower the person is spiritually.

Consequently, in a subconscious revelation of its condition, the human soul will then use this Name in accordance with its own condition. Since no particularly strong intuitions arise and fills them when they say this Name, i.e. they experience only emptiness, they will consequently be bound by the law of cause and effect to frequently toss it around and use it only in ways that express their spiritual condition in relation to the Bearer of this Name: superficial, vain, empty, flippant.

Hence the frequent infringement of this Commandment reveals a lot to the one who looks with open eyes and vigorously assesses his heart and then carefully scrutinizes societal lexicographic habits around him today. For it is a self-judgment that everyone who breaks this Commandment, knowingly or unknowingly, passes upon himself each time.
