I initially wrote the “letter” below as an email to a dear friend of mine who uses the written word to inspire others and promote healing. Everything he posts online are shared with his intent to promote positivity, inclusion and love. I have since decided to share my correspondence as a blog post, in light of recent tragedies around the world, to remind people that whether or not you have money or status, is of no consequence when it comes to helping others. All that matters is your intent. If you have kindness in your heart, then you can be of service to others and help those suffering and in need of hope or comfort. Your words hold great power, whether written or spoken. Think about that the next time you are tempted to make a sarcastic remark or minimize someone’s feelings over what you deem to be inconsequential. Take a moment to breathe, ask yourself the following questions: Are my chosen words going to make this person feel loved, inspired or understood? Are my words going to hurt someone’s feelings? Are my words going to make me feel better, at the expense of someone else’s feelings? Are my words coming from my heart, or my head? Only after considering these questions, should you speak or write or type words to express yourself. You matter, others matter, and so do the words you use to interact with the outside world. That being said, remember you are never truly powerless – you choose the words you use, based on your intent, and that choice in and of itself hold great power! Without further ado, here it is.
Your words, as well as your deeds, will live on forever, as your everlasting legacy. You create timeless masterpieces with your willfully woven words of truth and sincerity. Your art is a reflection of your delicate heart…a written revelation of sorts that serves as testament to your strength of spirit and purity of soul. The key to the kingdom lies within you, and that is the Love that you share and express through your carefully crafted words. Love moves mountains and creates reality out of possibilities…Love is the force within and without, the miracle that transforms the field of pure potentiality into dynamic energy, the life-force that animates all forms of life.
