Daily Meditation for August 3, 2020

Recently, while waiting in a conference room for my companion to arrive, I opened a small square box of printed, colorful cards, available on the coffee table! I found myself captured by the truth and beauty of WORDS. Consider with me this small 4×4 card with such a huge message: “Your words can create the most beautiful dream. Or your words can destroy everything around you. Only impeccability of the word creates beauty, love and heaven on earth.” Is it saying that I am to be impeccable with my word? That my words be not even capable of sinning? Or wounding?  Irreproachable and flawless? Yes, I believe so! A short quote but long and deep responsibility! Do you, too, need to clean up your words so that they can create a beautiful dream?
