“Does what we say matter? Does it matter to others? Does it matter to ourselves? From early times to present there’s a wealth of wise people pointing out that what we say shapes our reality. We think it and then speak it into being. What we talk about we bring about.
What we think about we bring about is an important notion. Recently, at a meeting I attended, a devout Christian stood up and quoted Proverbs 18:20. ‘A man’s belly shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; With the increase of his lips shall he be satisfied.’
I don’t care whether you believe the Bible or not. That is not the purpose of my posts. Whatever you choose to believe or not, is up to you . Your faith is yours. I simply want to point out what all faiths and new thought leaders and thinkers have pointed out for eons.
Words Are Seeds – Be Careful What You Plant And What You Say
What we think about we bring about. What we say is what we get. The quote above is easily understood as what we say is important. What we repeatedly talk about IS what we think about. It IS what we feel about. It is what we create and experience and attract.
We can’t escape that we are responsible for our situations in life. The stories we tell daily about what happens to us, affect us. Most of us love drama. We want to tell others how we are used, abused, mistreated here, there, on the freeway, in the home and office.
By friends and by strangers; we talk about what we don’t want. We keep that morning commute skirmish alive throughout the day by repeating the tale to all who will listen. ‘Let me tell you what happened to me today!’ Blah Blah Blah we verbally vomit on others.
Life Is A Boomerang – What You Give Out You Get Back
We talk about the banks, big biz and government, gossip and the latest bad news on the internet. Our focus in not on the good we can create. We aren’t talking about how good things are, how easy it is, how beautiful life’s moments are and the many ways we are blessed.
This, however, is what we should endorse and repeat. We should speak only to bless, heal and prosper ourselves and others. Put a guard before your lips. Only command into being those things you want to bring into being! Stop talking about what is wrong!
Start talking about what is right. Practice gratitude and appreciation. Be thankful. Whatever you are talking about YOU ARE thinking about. What you think about you become. Get it? Instead, start feeling blessed and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
