THE POWER OF WORD

THE POWER OF WORD

In every religion the power of the word is recognized,so much that in some of them creation itself is said to have come out of the word.The external aspect of the thought of the god is the word,and as god thought and willed before the creation came out of the word.
Apart from the higher philosophic and religious value of the word,we may see that sound symbols play a prominent part in play of human life.
Someone talking to you,he is not touching you ,the pulsation of the air caused by his speaking go into your ear, they touch your nerves and produce effect in your mind.You can not resist it.Isn’t it wonderful.
Someone calls you a fool, you stand and slaps on his face.Suppose you are in trouble and felling miserable then one of your friend comes to you and he shares some inspiring stories with you and tell you some words of wisdom and from that point you start felling good, motivated.This is the power of word.
So from now whenever you are talking to anyone keep in mind the power of word.If you will say good words they will produce a good effect and that effect will help you to become a noble person.The opposite is also true if you will use bad words in your conversation the will produce a bad effect on you as well as on the person with whom your talking.
The words are great forces in higher philosophy as well as in common life.And these forces are very much responsible for your success,failure and most important your character.

    I agree with this post! πŸ™‚

    But then many people think words are not physical things and so, they appear harmless.

    Your post is a good reminder to those who have forgotten one of the truths of life.

    words are both harmful and good for us if we use good words they will not harm any one.Words are forces which are generated by thoughts and thoughts are another great force which are of great importance in human life.

    Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21.

    Arvind, we decide our fate by how we use our tongue. Also remember that when God created the heavens and the earth, he simply spoke by saying “Let there be Light” and so on. By speaking positive things in our lives, even when the circumstances shows otherwise, we can actually create good things in our lives. It doesn’t happen over night, but if we are consistent, it will finally manifest and we’ll see the results.

    Nice blog.

    Words are sharper that any two edged sword. They can lift a person up or bring him or her down. We need to be careful in what we are saying, as each word planted is a seed set to grow, good or bad.

    Think of it like this, if someone is called fat in their school years, it’s likely they will grow up feeling alone, keeping themselves away from crowds and have low self esteem. On the other hand if they are told they will do good in life and are praised all the time, they are likely to grow up doing well and having confidence in themselves.

    Each word is a seed planted, and remember…..For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you ( Matthew 7:2 )

    I find it interesting but have one question
    what about those people who can’t hear or speak or see anything
    the power of word is not useful 4 them
    but the power of feeling does it works
    what your opinion on it

    thanks arvind for following hope of light πŸ™‚

    words are secondary things and our thoughts are primary whichever word we use in our conversation are result of our thoughts
    those who cant hear or speak should use the power of there thought
    our feelings too are the result of thoughts so if thoughts are good every thing will be good.

    There is an idea called “Logos” which amongst many meanings is “word”, that which reveals the thought, makes known the hidden, thus Logos became an active agency that converted the potential into actuality.

    Words are good if they remain in the “concrete” mind of the senses, but if word becomes “abstract”, which is that mind raher than senses deals with meaning, it rips away meaning from the thing, and then adds a meaning that does not belong to that thing, then trouble follows.

    I really enjoyed reading this. I am most familiar with Christianity’s use of the Word; God creates the world through his Word, God recreates (spiritual life) through his Word (Ezekiel 37), the Word reveals who God is through Jesus’ Incarnation, (John 1:18), etc. Your thoughts on the power of the word obviously relate to James 3.

    I also know that the logos is a Greek concept.

    But you say “in every religion.” Could you share some of the ways other religions understand this idea of “word”?

    Thanks!

      OM
      Word “OM” IS most sacred and important in various Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
      The ancient syllable “OM” is the shortest of the Mantras and in Indian tradition it is a word suggestive of God.
      The scriptures tell us that “OM” is the planets primordial vibration from which the entire universe has arisen. All other sounds are contained within it.
      It is believed that “OM” is the mother of all languages. Repetition of “OM” enables us to maintain mental and emotional calmness, overcome obstacles and enable understanding. Saying “OM” is actually a form of meditation.

      Tanakh
      The Jewish sacred text is the Tanakh, whose name is an acronym of Torah, Nebi’im and Ketuvim (Law, Prophets and Writings). It consists of the same books as the Christian Old Testament, although in a slightly different order and with other minor differences.

      If you will remove the different words used by different religions to describe god or creation there will not be any religion.Every thing will be same.
      After the removal of words everything will be the same.
      if you want to know more search yourself you will find the truth that actually words are secondary the silent feeling you get with out using any word is more powerful that the word.
      But we live live in a world where people cant stay silent hence the words are of very much importance.

        Thanks.

        So “OM” would be something like the root of all being? or the essence which all things have in common? In other words, if you break every down to its final substance (not sure if this is the right terminology) you will find “word” or “OM”?

        And do you think “Torah” would be similar the idea of “OM” or “Word”?

        If you have time, it is well worth it to work through Edwards’ essay on the Trinity. Even just the first two paragraphs have profound thoughts about the Word and the Spirit.

        The word “Torah” in Hebrew means “to guide/teach”.
        I do not see any similarity between AUM(OM) and Torah.
        Also i am unable to find any other single word in any Religion to be similar the idea of AUM(OM).

      No one in eastern thought consider om(AUM) as a person.
      AUM is not a word or symbol it is a vibration and to represent this vibration the symbol and this word is created.
      This symbol is a sacred syllable representing Brahman, the impersonal Absolute of Hinduism β€” omnipotent, omnipresent, and the source of all manifest existence. Brahman(the supreme reality), in itself, is incomprehensible; so a symbol becomes mandatory to help us realize the Unknowable. Om represents both the unmanifest (nirguna) and manifest (saguna) aspects of God. That is why it pervades life and runs through our prana(the force of life).

      According to the Mandukya Upanishad, “Om is the one eternal syllable of which all that exists is but the development. The past, the present, and the future are all included in this one sound, and all that exists beyond the three forms of time is also implied in it”.

        In Christian thought, the Word is a person who is the one God and yet is distinct from the Father: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). The Word is revealed to be Jesus, a real historical man who lived in Israel 2000 years ago: “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14, also see 1 Cor 15:3-8).

        This connects to the idea of “Revelation,” which means that humanity cannot know God apart from the story of Jesus, who has revealed God: “No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known” (John 1:18). We understand the character of God when we see Jesus’ passion to obey his Father (John 14:31) and to reconcile humanity to himself (1 John 4:7-11; this passage is key for understanding the essence of God).

        Jesus (the Word) is the symbol for God. “This symbol is a sacred syllable representing Brahman.” This seems similar to the way that Christian Scripture speaks of Jesus: “Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power” (Heb 1:1-3).

        So the Word (revealed in the person and work of Jesus (or the Gospel)) is the symbol of God, the image of God, etc. It seems like this is similar to what you are saying. However, there also seems to be two notable differences:

        1) The Word in Christian thought is God himself (“same substance,” as the Nicene formula states). He has existed with God before creation (John 1:1).

        2) The Word is a person, he is the Son, and he calls us to enjoy his very relationship with the Father: “Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world” (John 17:24). The Eastern Orthodox church has called this “deification” or “theosis.”

        Please clarify any misinterpretation of “aum” that I might have. I am embarrassingly ignorant of eastern spirituality, so thank you for sharing.

      If you really want to know the reality behind Hinduism i will suggest you to read the complete works of swami Vivekananda.
      It consists of nine books.
      Once you start studying his works it will be a totally a new experience for you.
      if you are comfortable with online reading then below is the link.But i will suggest you to buy his complete work which consists of nine books or go to any library and start your journey in a subject whose beginning is unknown some say more than 6000 years but it is only an estimation.

      I know that you have passion for theology, reading, writing, and the Truth.
      A person like you is very good candidate for the study of ancient Indian philosophy so don’t be an ignorant about India philosophy take the help of internet,Books etc.
      I am sure that after few days of deep study you will see the light behind the complexities of ancient Indian philosophy and it’s abstract thinking and spiritual practices.

    This was excellent! I remember my husband and I talking about fighting without hitting below the belt and he had pointed to his parents, saying they had never harmed one another, but had fought non-stop. My response, “Yes and your mother is still fighting with your father and he has been dead for 10 years!” You can recover from a punch but the words always stay.

    I love your emphasis on the power of the word. Our words come from our thoughts and our thoughts create our reality. We cannot be too careful with our thinking – our life literally depends on it. Thank you for sharing your insight.

    Simple yet deep! What I find most interesting is how language can be both limiting and empowering and both superficial and deep. No wonder why some paths see paradox as descriptive of some characteristics of divinity.
