Today we are hearing so much about our thoughts, and how we can create a new life, relationship, or change our existing circumstances simply by changing our thoughts. My question to you is, “What about our word?”
In the beginning there was darkness and God spoke, “Let there be light,” and there was light. The world and everything in it started as a thought, but words had to be spoken in order to manifest it into reality. Do you remember when there were no contracts, just a hand shake, and your “Word.” You could tell the integrity of a person simply by his word. Today in the hustle bustle of our reality, a person’s word has lost value…much like the integrity of a person. It is hard to believe that the world began with words, and today, people utilize their “word” or words to take advantage of others. Moreover, it is even a sadder realization that we abuse our word with the people who mean the most to us.
If you are making a commitment to do or say something, stick with that commitment, and bring back the integrity of your word. If we can change the way we think… how about changing the way we act? Don’t make commitments that you know you never intended to keep, and don’t just spout out things for the sake of closing off communications, or actions you know you should be taking care of. Let’s bring back the days when a man’s word meant something; when we knew that our “word” was the only contract we needed. We need to learn to keep our commitments and stay true not only to ourselves, but to all the people who are counting on us. As the old cliché goes, “Let’s make this a better world,” with the spoken word that means everything we stand for as spirits having a human experience.
My thoughts for today is…treat and say to others, what you want to be said and shown to you.
How do you and I make any impact? The short answer is spiritual practice. The power to change our world lies in the power of our word….As we learn to live among and appreciate the diversity around us, while at the same time seeing and articulating the common threads that connect it all, we become architects of a new world (Science of Mind 2010).
