Words

About: Seth Russell shared JEFF BROWN's post.

...

Words.

So powerful. They can crush a heart, or heal it. They can shame a soul, or liberate it. They can shatter dreams, or energize them. They can obstruct connection, or invite it. They can create defenses, or melt them. We have to use words wisely.

Seth says
Seth Russell Herman Hesse wrote "The Glass Bead Game" and he kind of described what the beads were but he left a whole lot up to our imagination. I fell in love with his game. I have always thought that his glass beads were actually words. Powerful little buggers when we give them care ... use them wisely indeed!
