But words are things; and a small drop of ink, falling like dew upon a thought, produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think. Lord Byron
To think is to create. It is the beginning; sometimes coming as an image and other times just a sound, but creation nonetheless. I’m sitting here today once again listening to the raindrops, to soothing meditation music playing softly in the background and finding peace in the now moment. Eckhardt Tolle teaches us that we only have this moment we are existing in. everything we ever experienced is wrapped up like a summary of our lives in this moment. Lisa Nichols teaches that we needed every experience to bring us to the person we are in this very moment and I totally agree with both these powerful mentors in my life. To live means we have experiences, both pleasant and unpleasant, and it is through those experiences that we grow into our full potential. There is meaning in everything we do and therefore to not experience something we have a choice to engage in is to lose out on some of our potential greatness.
I have studied the great philosophers, the spiritual leaders, the modern motivational figures and what I have come to realize is that what we are seeking in our own lives draws us to these people as they put a voice to our very own thoughts. How many times have I listened to someone speak and comment that it was exactly what I was thinking. I have even said out loud that it is like listening to myself talk but it is someone else saying the words.
So here’s the thing – if you can think it, you can say it or write it. Stop waiting for that superhero or special leader to show up in your life. Be your own superhero. The leaders are leaders because they were not afraid to speak whether vocally or in written words. Words are things, as Lord Byron says, and you can make millions think with the words you speak. I want to hear what you have to say!
