What’s in the Words

Communication is part of life. We use words to build relationships and societies.

So often, the words we use are flavoured with our underlying feeling about the person or situation in question. Then the words that are expressed will be bitter, sweet or even sour.

Sometimes it is important that feelings are conveyed within our communication. However the purpose of communication is to convey a message in a way that will be understood.

When words emerge from a volcano of feelings, without much discernment, then what is communicated, instead of the message,  is maybe the ‘dislike’, the ‘prejudice’ etc. This then generates further pain and sorrow making the situation even more complex.

So often words are spoken with so much force, emotion and bitterness that they hurt rather than to communicate. Once words are spoken, that is it – there is no way they can ever be taken back. Then no matter how many other words we use to pacify or justify the outburst, the damage will have already been done.

Stop, think, speak. Pause before you communicate.

Om Shanti
