The soul of words

How words create our own reality. . .

Words have soul, or they may be a reflection of our soul when we use them. They have such a decisive importance that, for example the word kotodama, in Japanese language, refers to the belief in this culture about the indwelling power of words.

Words create realities, or perhaps I should say, they create our own perspective of reality; these form interpretations from our own point of view. When they manifest, there is no way back. . .

Words can build walls or vanish them; they can be precise, executive or unclear; they can create beautiful foundations, or can manipulate, divide or destroy. . . Regardless their use; they always produce a consequence and unleash an emotional reaction.

I sometimes wonder how aware we are when we use them, how much we honor them, or if we use them and think are taken off by the wind. . .
