Words are seeds and they have power. The moment they leave our mouths, we have planted a thought or feeling in someone else.
When words are rooted in negativity, they can create great destruction. Sometimes the destruction is maliciously intentional, which creates its own karma back to the speaker. For indeed, what we sow, we reap.
Sometimes the hurt and destruction are unintentional. We can simply sometimes be careless with our words. We don’t think before we speak.
The world desperately needs our good words. It’s time for each of us to plant more positive, expansive seeds. Words of love. Words of gratitude. Words that initiate cooperation. Words rooted in grace.
“Raise your words, not your voice, it is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” (Rumi)
