Friday Flash 55 – Venom

Venom by !DagoDesign on Deviant Art

Venom by !DagoDesign on Deviant Art

Vicious words spit from
the venomous tongue
are far more deadly
than the bite of a
poisonous snake…
for at least
 the snake’s
bite
can be mutated
with
anti-venom
…yet…
the bite of the
poisonous tongue quickly,
and deliberately
kills
the spirit-
the venomous tongue
often leaves
 permanent damage
to the hearts of the multitude

Quote for the Day:  Sticks and Stones may Break my Bones, but Words Hurt Long After the Initial Blow.  ~CordieB.

In reality, words can and often do hurt.  However, the spiritual individual is able to counter hurtful or false words with self knowledge and truth.  The spiritual individual will not allow the ego to manefest the hurtful words in his or her heart; for she or he knows the beauty in their being and the truth in their hearts.   Also, those who live by the spirit, will not spit hateful words to others or himself.  For it is the ego that constantly battles with the spirit to speak hurt, hatred or falsehood, in order to make the ego feel good about itself.   Remember when mom told you that kids teased you in order to make them feel big – well she was correct in her wisdom.  Some adults have not grown beyond their childhood and continue to tell lies or  say hurtful things simply to make themself look big by making others look small.  It is sad actually – the insecurities and fears of some people.   The next time you are tempted to say or speak a hurtful word, remind yourself that it is your ego and insecurities which tempt you to do so.  Beckon the love, truth and wisdom of your spirit to manifest itself.  When we practice walking and talking in the way of our core self (spirit),  and what we know to be true in our hearts, we will neither utter nor absorb hurtful and/or false words. 

~Peace, Light and Love…..CordieB.

Words

Unspoken truths are

Sometimes far more destructive

Than ill spoken words spewed

In anger or frustration…

Whilst the latter can hurt, and never

Be retrieved…

The unspoken truths

often lead to

harsher Ill spoken words…

or even worst…

The unspoken truths

produce a subdued cancer that

sickens the soul;

slowly deteriorating

and rotting the heart

~CordieB.

====================

Quote for the Day.

"Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are — chaff and grain together — certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away."
— Dinah Mulock
===============================

Sometimes, when I’m unsure just how to say something, I meditate on it.  I ask God to help me with the right words to express how I feel.  And then there are those times when I ask God to hold my tongue too…at least until I’m calm enough to speak them with compassion and conviction.

 Peace, Light and Love. . . CordieB.

True Words of Wisdom . . .

If tomorrow morning the sky falls… have clouds for breakfast.
If night falls, use the stars for street lights. If the moon gets stuck in a tree, cover the hole in the sky with a strawberry. If you have butterflies in your stomach… ask them into your heart.

If your heart catches in your throat… ask a bird how she sings.
If the birds forget their songs, listen to a pebble instead. If you lose a memory, embroider a new one to take its place. If you lose the key, throw away the house. If the clock stops… use your own hands to tell time.

If the light goes out, wear it around your neck and go dancing. If the bus doesn’t come… catch a fast cloud. If it’s the last dance, dance backwards. If you find your socks don’t match, stand in a flowerbed. If your shoes don’t fit, give them to the fish in the pond. If your horse needs shoes… let him use his wings.

If the sun never shines again… hold fireflies in your hands to keep warm. If you’re afraid of the dark… remember the night rainbow. If there is no happy ending… make one out of cookie dough.
