030: there is an interesting word that appears frequently in ancient hebrew poetry and songwriting. the word is 'selah'. many question the true meaning of this word, but many scholars believe that 'selah' can be rightly interpreted as 'stop and think'. 'selah' was inserted multiple times in songs. it would be used as an interlude to allow the listener to think about the words they just heard as the music continues to play.
'selah' moments are almost non-existent in our modern culture. but we need to bring 'selah' moments back. we need to slow down. reflect. comprehend. understand.
when you come across food for thought, chew a bit slower; you take in more nutrients that way.
