The language we use when speaking is a description of our inner person. It tells of the anger, the hatred, the pain, the joy, the gratefulness, and the rebelliousness which resides in our mind. It is show and tell.
There are many who say, “Don’t tell them that! They’ll think this or that!” If I am in harmony with what I believe to be goodness, then I have no qualms of telling of my experiences. I try, every day, to be kind … to myself first, so much so, that this kindness will spill into the world. I do not wish to hide in the shadows and harbor ill will, I want no part of that.
Standing in vulnerability is important. Allowing others opportunity to be judge, also allows them to perhaps open eyes and actually see this in themselves, and then change it. It is a difficult and painful position, this is why so many shrink from the task.
Some folks believe that using foul language means freedom, they release into the world, whatever they choose, and they call it good. They say they speak without anger or blame and therefore it is acceptable.
When children are raised they are taught not to talk trash ~ imagine a world where they have permission to spew foul words wherever they went, and to whomever they chose, then imagine them becoming adults, with children of their own, allowing the same. What do you envision? While the pains of life are still there, and anger is still prevalent, only now it is acceptable to talk such language … what do you see? Often the language of a kind is followed by actions of a kind.
If you have to ‘watch your language’ in the presence of children, it is a sign that inwardly you do not think speaking certain words is okay.
Words form reality.
What are you creating?
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
