Magic Words


Words are magic to me, therefore I am rather careful with the words I choose. Words are reflection of our thoughts and if unskillful words appear, that must also mean that unskillful thoughts are present.

Words shape not only the individual, but the organizations as well. Therefore we should choose the words we use carefully. Words are loaded with meaning.

During October I’ve decided to practice mindfulness as Lao Tzu said:

“Watch your thoughts; they become words.

Watch your words; they become actions.

Watch your actions; they become habit.

Watch your habits; they become character.

Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”

What I have learned through reading and writing is that they are both connected. If you think what you are going to say, you have already changed your destiny.

To apply this to your life, start writing down the sentences in the form of mantras or otherwise. Useful sentences like this become your thinking and doing. These words become your magic words, for almost any situation there can be learned a wiser thoughts.
