Power of Words

Words are amazing and strong; they can be both nurturing and destructive. Words are as symbolic as they are historic; and people use words every day – but do we actually understand what we are doing every time we talks; sure we understand sounds; but, do we actually hear when someone speaks. Do we actually listen to their words? Do we ingest what we hear, not just regurgitate what is said? Do we completely and fully, and without bias hear those words as if they are our own; are we fully understanding of our own responses, and do we take the time to listen to ourselves; to hear what we sound like to other people? It is important because a word comes from a thought and that thought comes from the person’s interpolation of the symbols that they see, and those symbols turn into data collected within their brain. Words are how we all begin and how we all end.

To have a valid, committed – view point you must first understand the other person, not just say you do. You must fully, and intently, and completely – and with all your passion, your ears, and your mind - fully understand that person’s thoughts; and to do that, you must be willing to give for even the slightest moment, your views of what they are saying up – because your views are not theirs; and after all, are you are responding to their views in the first place; – you must be willing to put yourself in their shoes, to hear how they hear and to completely surrender your own beliefs and own thoughts over to them; again for even the slightest moment. You must truly listen, to truly hear them.

Do you actually do this, and if you do, then do you do it 100% of the time. Think of your own experiences and when you got violently angry at someone; did you completely surrender to their thoughts – even for just a moment, to see how they are thinking through the words they use?

The reason I state this is because, while most people can say on the surface they do listen, do they really understand that person? Only you can say with 100% surety if you do, but that truth is on you and only you.

Words shape nations, control the human emotion, and most of all create laws and direct life. How closely are you paying attention to the words of other people? With words one can completely control you completely or one can release you to freedom of unexpected heights, but you must understand words first. Take this time to learn the words you use, before expecting others to understand you.
