I could not agree with this statement any more. The words that we use have power. Everyday we are speaking to our heart and from our hearts. We bare witness of what we believe about life and about our place in it.
Here is what I said 4 years ago:
“Have you thought about what freedom means? Isn’t it about choice? When we say that I “have to” do something we are telling ourselves that we have no choice. When we change that to I “get to” or I “want to” it makes all the difference in our attitude and our subconscious minds will get the message as well and know that this is a joy and not a burden. I really took this to heart in a class taught in college by Lou Tice (www.thepacificinstitute.com)
The words we use create an image in our minds and they are very powerful. That goes for the ones we send out to others and the ones that we send out to ourselves.”
I still agree and would add the addition that will change the world! To understand that it is the life of Christ that you are living and that He has sent you on a journey that will include pain and suffering. This is because we still have within our DNA the false thought from our Creator, The Christ, that He had about His need to be punished for separating from God.
If we are to be truly free our language will need to reflect a recognition of this part of our being along with two other criteria. One is that we acknowledge our forgiveness of Christ and even our witness that all this sorrow just is not a truth we choose to continue to condone, accept, or acknowledge. The second thing is to give thanks and glory to both Christ and God, The Father for the abundance that They have provided for us on a daily basis.
Now I am not speaking about positive thinking. I am speaking of living as if one believes that God Is. When you really stop to think about it, you will see the logic in it; once you get over the idea that so much suffering must have happened because it is recorded and you may even thought that you have lived it.
The point is, you can either live in the contrast, which is the darkness, or you can live in the light and truth that God Is and that because of this We may know of Christ’s innocence and purity.
I understand that this is a bit more challenging than just changing our language, but that is a great place to start. The Bible teaches us to give thanks in all things and to seek first the Kingdom of God and all things shall be added unto you. This is something we may all partake in personally and, indeed, must be undergone by all components of creation so as to allow The Only Begotten Son of God to awaken to His true Self.
Till next time, may you receive all the blessings you are willing to receive, in Jesus name, Amen.
