I was thinking about words today and the power they hold in our world. They can hold such strong meanings that stay locked in place and we refuse to let them go. They take on a life of their own. Why do we seem to need the meanings of these words anyway? Why do we allow them to define our lives? Just take the word ‘riots’ for example. That word is front and center these days because of the killing of that young boy in Missouri and the unrest among the people in turmoil. These people are angry and they have every right to be. The way the black have been mistreated for so long now it is no wonder they are fed up and crying out for justice. It is the media who has labeled these protests RIOTS. Now riot is the buzz word for the week and the insinuations that word evokes is front and center as well. Words get used as weapons and they get twisted and over dramatized and used to persuade the public to see and feel things a certain way. Words are no longer a form of communication, they have become an art form of judgment used against the people rather than for them.
Look at the word ‘environmental’ and how that has been transformed into an evil word used to divide the people and put down a way of thinking in the hopes of stopping a movement to protect the earth. It has now become a dirty name with bad connotations. Then you have the word ‘natural’ and it too has been hijacked and used to promote lies. Natural was placed on food labels despite the fact they truly were not natural and from the earth but rather concocted in some factory and filled with chemicals and GMO’s. All the evil corporations jumped on the ‘natural’ bandwagon in the hopes of shoving their not so healthy foods down our throats. Who needs swords or guns when you have words to use as weapons against people and to perpetrate lies?
Why do the meanings of words have such power over us? How has the art form of communication become so jaded and misleading? How has our form of communicating with one another taken on such a sinister meaning? Perhaps it happening to show us it is time to drop words all together and tune into ourselves enough to begin to use telepathy. Perhaps it is occurring to show us that we should move beyond such an archaic way of being and move forward into higher forms of communication such as telepathically speaking with one another. If we became able to read each others thoughts, lies and secrets would no longer be possible and honesty would be first and foremost in the world. Honesty is desperately needed in the world today. We are drowning in deceit and lies for the purpose of control. Is it not time, perhaps, to look more closely at what is going on and realize we should get more closely in touch with ourselves and learn a better way to get our thoughts across?
There is a great deal of promoting evil going on out there by choosing words carefully to get across a message to people. There are words that are used over and over until they get beaten into the ground just to make a point. I think we need to be more aware of what is being said and why and by whom. Words roll off our tongues so easily and with such little thought, that they are now becoming meaningless. There is far less thinking before speaking going on these days and that needs to change. Words have become part of the dark’s arsenal of weapons being used against us and it is time we pay attention more closely. Personally I think it is time for a whole new vocabulary if we aren’t going to move forward telepathically. These old words are hurtful, divisive and demeaning. They do not inspire nor do they offer hope, so why do we need them? Are we not trying to become more loving and caring about each other? If so today’s words need to go and be replaced with ones that lift up the world.
Blessings to us all,
