Are your words medicine, or barriers to meaningful change?

As our fears and pain are triggered, we are tempted to lash out, to criticize, and to judge the acts that have contributed to our discomfort.  We rant about injustice, we shout at ignorance, we fight aggression.  This course of action may provide temporary relief, allowing us to feel, momentarily, that we are 'better' than those who create suffering, superior in comparison.


But as we wage war against war, we feed it.

As we cut through the words of another, we cut ourselves.


We are each natural communicators, through our words, our actions, and our choices.  We express ourselves in infinite ways, through our bodies, our minds, and through what we create in our daily lives.  But we often view our communication as our own, within a bubble, limiting its reach, and in what we receive.  

True, honest communication is Communion.  It is a tribal sharing, a giving and receiving, a way to understand and unite.  And as we cut off communication from others, silencing them, dismissing them, the communion and community is broken and disposed of.

We are not meant to speak only to ourselves, as an island, without the influence and understanding of others.  We are meant to listen and speak, to share the wisdom within.  Communion is invited into our lives and our circles through wisdom and clarity, lighting the way forward.


Instead of criticizing what you judge to be wrong, what if you could understand the why behind that message, and create a solution? 

Instead of striking down the words of another, could you witness the pain or fear that motivates it, and more deeply understand what lies within you? 

And instead of searching for ways to dismiss or allay fears, could you welcome ways that would heal them, for all of us?


The breakdown of communication and communion creates so much of the suffering that we endure today.  Could your voice be the music, your words poetry, your messages the medicine that will heal?


What can you express today that would change your world for the better?

What could you share with another, that would heal the rifts, bringing you closer to closure?

What relationships could you build by reaching out, and offering a non-judgmental space to commune?

Take today to meditate on the power of your expression, and ways to heal through your words.  I can't wait to witness what evolves (please share with me)!
