Most cultures in the world remain locked in a survival mode mentality. In general, communications between people involve a fight-or-flight mentality, with its usual outcome of reaction leading to separation.

When we express our true feelings without fear and speak from the heart, communicating openly and honestly, we are able to do so because we are emotionally stable, psychologically integrated, and mindful. These qualities of the Self allow for a responsive mode of communication that fosters harmony and unity.

Let us celebrate the beauty of words, the healing influence of words, and the wonder of words. When we cease to use words as weapons we will initiate peace in the world. No longer will we desire to use them to harm people.
