The Hidden Structure of Writing

The word structure can evoke images of a linear arrangement of ideas, even a certain logical rigidity. Structure, however, can also be flowing and organic. The mind creates its own connections and provides its own logic if we allow our thoughts to flow and are sensitive to the relationships that emerge. Reflective writing allows us time to recognize, explore, and play with structure inour writing.

Images of doors and windows depict commonplace structures in our daily experience. They frame openings that allow entrance and egress.  We open doors and enter or leave our homes. We open other doors and enter or leave our classrooms Sunlight and breezes enter our windows (and maybe rain if we left the window open!), all within a framed structure. What our minds choose to do with such structural images, however, can follow different paths. As an image, a window frame or a door frame is linear and rigid. Such frames enclose. They serve a clear function. They appear as an expected orderly arrangement.

Door frames and window frames also have their own organic logic as well. They can be openings to the unknown, to the hidden. While providing entrance and egress, they lure us both in and out. Symbolically, they can offer us passageways to other dimensions, other avenues of being. Our reflections on an image or a concept create their own connections, and the structure of those connections allows meaning to emerge for the reader.

In a symposium in April 2012 on Maharishi Vedic Science: Illuminating the Cutting Edge of Modern Science, Maharaja emphasized the connection between logic, structure, and the human physiology. He said, We express our words. We express our thinking, our feelings. We see our world. We see our society through the microscope of our instrument [the human physiology], which has a certain quality and has a certain shape.” He went on to say, “The self is structured according to the structure of the body.”1  Structure is innate. We come by it naturally–truly, a gift from Mother Nature.

So, play with structure. Don’t always see it outlined with roman numerals and letters. Let shape emerge in your writing, recognize it, benefit from it, and explore further.
