The Power You Wield

You are at the core of everything that exists in thought here in this world, be it good or evil. Everything you say has an impact on those that hear or read it and in that way you are influencing the patterns of thought around you.


It is your choice what to do with that power. The choice is easy to make when you decide what kind of world it is that you wish to live in.

Try it out for a week: say nothing but that which contributes to your view of how you want your world to be. 

Examples:
––If you are angry, talk about things like forgiveness or times you’ve been forgiven.
––If you are sick, talk about times you’ve been well or what you want to do when you get better.
––If you are sad, talk about the things you’ve gained as a result or still have in spite of what you lost.

“Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.

The thought manifests as the word. The word manifests as the deed. The deed develops into habit. And the habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care. And let it spring from love, born out of concern for all beings.”
