Words are a very powerful tool. They can inspire or discourage. They can make the listener smile or frown. Words can unite nations or push them to war. You can use words to inspire someone to live or to put an end to his life. So, choose your words carefully.

The power of words is so strong that even years after their passing, we are anxious to know what words the great leaders had spoken in their speeches. We draw inspiration from the words of world leaders. How inspired we become when we hear the speech ‘I have a dream’! The words will always be associated with MLK Jr. The words ‘Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country’ remind us of John F. Kennedy. 

Caution should be taken in not only speaking words but also in listening to them. After listening to words you will most definitely think about what was said. Negative words will inspire negativity; positive words, positivity.

The great spiritual leaders from around the world create spiritual revolution through their heartfelt words. When I listen to my divine master, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj, the sheer truth and beauty of the words are so moving that they cause a lump in the throat and tears in the eyes.

Use words to offer and receive hope, encouragement and inspiration.
