It is true, words are not reality or that which we or others are talking about, they are just a description of it, the words “beautiful sunset” gives you an image in your head, not a sunset. When we have spoken the words we have to let go of our own and others interpretation of them and see the true meaning behind them.
It is really possible to feel the energy behind the written words, whether they are honest, angry, pleasant and so on, you have often done it, you may not be aware of it but we all have felt the energy of written words. It is just like the spoken word, when our friends say, I am fine, everything is good and we can feel it is not true, the energy is hollow, not true and we do not have to see the speaker’s mouth when he is yelling at us, it is enough to hear the words, the tone, the force, created by energy, the same energy we put into written words.
Sometimes when I get mail from an angry person I can feel the anger arise from the letter, no matter whether it is written on paper or computer. This applies for all feelings the writer puts in the writing. Then I have two choices I can get angry, and write back with more force of angry energy or I can just let the angry energy fly pass me and dissolve in thin air.
So when you read something, also these words, notice how it makes you feel, feel the energy from them, do not just believe or dismiss them, find out for yourself, is this so or not. Go on the internet and goggle, she what other people are saying about the same thing, and try to feel why.
But always decide for yourself, does this fit my common sense, my need. There is nobody out there to do that for you, you have to do it yourself, for you.
