The soul of words

How words create our own reality. . .

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

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. . .
