the power of voice


In the still, silent moment before speech, in the space of that breath that separates thought from expression, the whole world is transmuted into finely-tuned crystal, waiting and listening in reverent awe; because words carry the power of meaning, and when you speak, your voice hums with the quiet force of intention, crackles with the raw energy of insight, sings the captivating melodies of kindness and compassion, and reverberates with the distant thunder of truth that echoes through ages and centuries, sending brilliant flashes of understanding through the billions of facets of our crystalline world. It is the colors of those meanings by which we see our reality, and it is a shame when we waste our voice on petty pursuits and trivial matters.
