Words can inflame passions or cool them. Stir up the worst or find the best. Pull down or build up; tarnish or cleanse; destroy or strengthen; damage or bind up and heal. The ability to use words wisely can endear you to your fellows and enable you to rise to heights you may now only dream of. ~ Abraham Lincoln
lt is to be regretted that, as a society, we tend to focus much more on the leaves and fruits (external things like disease, financial status, physical appearance, etc) than on the roots (thoughts, words, beliefs, diet and actions) and the environment (spiritual, social, physical) in which the tree grows…and which, to a very large extent determine the quality and quantity of those leaves and fruits.
We are coming to understand, more and more, that words – whether spoken, heard, or read – can physically affect the biochemistry, physiology, and yes…even the anatomical structure of our cells.
Listen to this presentation to find out how words have influenced, and continue to influence every aspect of your life, and how to intelligently direct your words so you can live a long, healthy and productive life.
