"Language is powerâ€¦ Language can be used as a means of changing reality."
-Adrienne Rich (1929 - )
The words we say carry weight, carry meaning. And it's not only which words we say but the way that we say them, too. Look at the "spin" that can be put on things in advertisements and in political speeches. There are ways that we can make this concept work for us in our spiritual growth. Affirmations, for example. We use words and language to change our thinking, and we can change our lives. We create our own reality.
