Sowing | Plant the good

It is harvest time in the Northern Hemisphere, and Thanksgiving will be celebrated in some cultures soon. It gives me pause to think, are we cognizant often enough of the seeds we are planting with our words?

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 such as anger, jealousy, spite, or a need for control, they can create huge destruction. Sometimes the destruction is intentional, which creates its own karma back to the person who initiated it. For indeed, we reap what we sow.

Sometimes the hurt and destruction are unintentional. We can simply sometimes be careless with our words. We don’t think before we speak.

Perhaps it’s time for each of us to intentionally plant more positive, expansive seeds out there in the world. Words of love. Words of gratitude. Words that initiate cooperation. Words rooted in grace.

At the end of the day, the world will be the garden that we plant. What will it look like? Will it be a world ravaged by war, greed, jealousy, hate? Or will it be a world that flourishes in a state of grace? It is up to us to decide.

Power of Words | Speak wisely

Words are potent, therefore it behooves us to choose and use them wisely. In this muddled up, confused and too-often-angry world, sometimes we feel powerless to change it in any significant, positive way. However our words, over which we have sole control and responsibility, are one way we can do that.
