shabda– the magic of words.

Words carry their own energy and power.

If we are not conscious of the power of the words, we run the risk of creating noisy disturbance.

When we speak or write we use words these are vehicles that carry of energy from us to a group of people.

This could be anything a love-letter or a work memo or just a diary entry but each written word has a life of its own. A vibratory signature that creates waves in the same way a musical note creates waves. Like musical notes our words live in a community of other words, we become capable of making beautiful music in the world. If we are  not conscious of the power of word we could create disturbance.

Some of us know this instinctively, while others come to this understanding slowly.

Many times we blurt out our feelings and thought without much regard for the words we choose and impact they cause. When we remind ourselves wanting to be more aware of our use of language.

A fun way of increasing our sensitivity to words is to list our favourite words  and notice the energy  they contain. We can write them down where we can see them and notice the energy they contain when we speak them aloud. This is like playing an instrument consciously as opposed to the unconscious fiddling that we have imbibed. This discovery can be startling and delightful.

As we begin to grow more and more comfortable with playing the language instrument we begin to compose beautiful messages. Creating positive energy every time we speak or write

    “So many words get lost. They leave the mouth and lose their courage, wandering aimlessly until they are swept into the gutter like dead leaves. On rainy days, you can hear their chorus rushing past: IwasabeautifulgirlPleasedon’tgoItoobelievemybodyismadeofglass-I’veneverlovedanyoneIthinkofmyselfasfunnyForgiveme….

    There was a time when it wasn’t uncommon to use a piece of string to guide words that otherwise might falter on the way to their destinations. Shy people carried a little bunch of string in their pockets, but people considered loudmouths had no less need for it, since those used to being overheard by everyone were often at a loss for how to make themselves heard by someone. The physical distance between two people using a string was often small; sometimes the smaller the distance, the greater the need for the string.

    The practice of attaching cups to the ends of string came much later. Some say it is related to the irrepressible urge to press shells to our ears, to hear the still-surviving echo of the world’s first expression. Others say it was started by a man who held the end of a string that was unraveled across the ocean by a girl who left for America.

    When the world grew bigger, and there wasn’t enough string to keep the things people wanted to say from disappearing into the vastness, the telephone was invented.

    Sometimes no length of string is long enough to say the thing that needs to be said. In such cases all the string can do, in whatever its form, is conduct a person’s silence.”
