Your Word


Your Word

Mat 12:35-37  “The good person out of the good treasure [within him] brings forth good [things], and the evil person out of the evil treasure [within him] brings forth evil [things]. But I say to you*, every idle [or, careless] word which the people shall speak, they will render an account concerning it in [the] day of judgment. “For by Your Words you will be justified [or, declared righteous], and by Your Words you will be condemned.”

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word [or, the Expression of [divine] Logic], and the Word was with [or, in communion with] God, and the Word was God [or, was as to His essence God].

Gen 1:26 And saying is the Elohim, “Make will We humanity in Our image, and according to Our likeness, and sway shall they over the fish of the sea, and over the flyer of the heavens, and over the beast, and over all land life, and over every moving animal moving on the land.

In the light of idle [or, careless] words, words that will justify or condemn you; I can’t say it any better than the following:

Excerpts from: The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz-

The first agreement is the most important one and also the most difficult one to honor. It is so important that with just this first agreement you will be able to transcend to the level of existence I call heaven on earth…

The first agreement is to be impeccable with Your Word. It sounds very simple, but it is very, very powerful…

Why your word ?  Your Word is the power that you have to create. Your Word is the gift that comes directly from God. The Gospel of John in the Bible, speaking of the creation of the universe, says, “In the beginning there was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word is God.” Through the Word you express your creative power…

What you dream, what you feel, and what you really are, will all be manifested through the word…

The word is not just a sound or a written symbol. The Word is a force; it is the power you have to express and communicate, to think, and thereby to create the events in your life…

The Word is the most powerful tool you have as a human…

Depending upon how it is used, the Word can set you free, or it can enslave you even more than you know…

The human mind is like a fertile ground where seeds are continually being planted. The seeds are opinions, ideas, and concepts…

The only problem is that too often it is fertile for the seeds of fear…

What is important is to see which kind of seeds our mind is fertile for, and to prepare it to receive the seeds of love…

Impeccability means “without sin.” Impeccable comes from the Latin pecatus, which means “sin.” The im in impeccable means “without,” so impeccable means “without sin.” Religions talk about sin and sinners, but let’s understand what it really means to sin. A sin is anything that you do which goes against yourself. Everything you feel or believe or say that goes against yourself is a sin…

When you are impeccable, you take responsibility for your actions, but you do not judge or blame yourself…

From this point of view, the whole concept of sin changes from something moral or religious to something commonsense. Sin-begins with rejection of yourself…

Being impeccable with Your Word is not using the word against yourself…

Therefore, if I get angry and with my word send all that emotional poison to you, I’m using the Word against myself…

If I love myself I will express that love in my interactions with you, and then I am being impeccable with the Word, because that action will produce a like reaction. If I love you, then you will love me. If I insult you, you will insult me…

Being impeccable with Your Word is the correct use of your energy; it means to use your energy in the direction of truth and love for yourself…

The truth is the most important part of being impeccable with Your Word

Only the truth will set us free…

Gossiping has become the main form of communication in human society. It has become the way we feel close to each other, because it makes us feel better to see someone else feel as badly as we do…

Fear and suffering are an important part of the dream of the planet; they are how the dream of the planet keeps us down…

Using the analogy of the human mind as a computer, gossip can be compared to a computer virus…

All of this mess can be caused by one little computer virus. One little piece of misinformation can break down communication between people; causing every person it touches to become infected and contagious to others…

The result is a world full of humans who can only read information through circuits that are clogged with a poisonous, contagious virus…

We talk to ourselves constantly and most of the time we say things like, “Oh, I look fat, I look ugly. I’m getting old, I’m losing my hair. I’m stupid, I never understand anything. I will never be good enough, and I’m never going to be perfect.” Do you see how we use the word against ourselves?…

If you understand the first agreement, be impeccable with Your Word, you begin to see all the changes that can happen in your life. Changes first in the way you deal with yourself, and later in the way you deal with other people, especially those you love the most…

If we adopt the first agreement, and become impeccable with Our Word, any emotional poison will eventually be cleaned from our mind and from our communication in our personal relationships…

When you are impeccable with Your Word, you feel good; you feel happy and at peace…

Impeccability of the Word can lead you to personal freedom, to huge success and abundance; it can take away all fear and transform it into joy and love…

With the impeccability of the Word you can transcend the dream of fear and live a different life. You can live in heaven in the middle of thousands of people living in hell because you are immune to that hell. You can attain the kingdom of heaven from this one agreement: Be impeccable with Your Word.

-Excerpts from: The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

Remember words are imbued with power. Understand their meaning and the history of their meaning. Then choose carefully which words can help you Be impeccable with Your Word.
