Every Word is Sacred

What if you truly believed that every word and sound you uttered was perfectly sacred? Every giggle, sigh, cry, and scream? Every "nice" word and every "mean" word? What if every carefully cultivated word and every untended expression was just like a secret Chinese fortune waiting to be received? What if you gently pulled open the secret drawers to your voice and spoke everything?

What if every word and sound you received from someone else was just as utterly perfect?

  3. Hi Robin, thanks for finding me! Glad you enjoy the "what if" journey. I like to pose one of these questions at least once a day to find some relief from my patterns :) I'm grateful for the invite to you speaking engagement too.

  4. This is so true, I believe this also. The spirit of the world and we are as one and should gently be loving with every thought and spoken word. Takes us a life time to learn in a gentle way. Bad times aren't meant to happen.
