The Power of Conversation

Words do not label things already there. Words are like the knife of a carver; They free the idea, the thing, from the general formlessness of the outside. As a man speaks, not only is hs language in a state of birth, but also the very thing about which he is talking.

The power of one's word or thoughts provokes the energies into creating one's next minute, next hour, next year. Faith in those dimensions can inhibit or empower.

"I told you that was never going to work" is faith inhibiting.

"I knew you could do that" is empowering.

It isn't that simple? Why not? Doesn't even Jesus speak about the faith of a child.

One's thought is but a pebble, which creates ripples. Thought provoking, or is it provoking thought? Just the two words changed creates different dynamics.

Ones realities
As an image from within
Is all perception
