Words Connect Us to the World
There aren't too many people today in the world that do not have some form of communication device. Phones, cell phone, mobile phones, computers, hand-helds, blackberries, Ipods, notebooks, laptops...the list grows daily. We are no longer a world where the words of others take hours, days, weeks or years to reach the other side of the planet. Today, at this very moment, what I write, the words I use can travel at the speed of light to readers, or listeners in China, Australia, India, Africa.
Words connect us. They bind us in Love or repel us in fear. This is why it is so important to be mindful of what we write, or say. Too often, unconscious comments are flung through the Universe creating pain and tearing us apart.
As we move forward in time, let us take the time to be mindful of our words, whether written or spoken. Let us center each syllable in Love and Peace. When our words connect us to the world, let us create bonds strengthened by our mutual Respect and Compassion.
