The theme of the day was the power of words. Words have power.Underneath words are attitudes. Attitudes are how we feel and how we live. We express attitudes in words. An attitude is energy structure with verbal tones. If you have the attitude that you are a failure and continue to use words that reflect this attitude of being a failure, you will continue to be a failure.

Our words and attitudes are part of our culture. Many of our values are surrounded by an attitude and therefore are surrounded by words. We become who we are because of the power of our words based on the actions of the attitude. When the attitude and the expression of it are based on ignorance, the words we use about the attitude are also words that are fundamental to this ignorance.

The expansion of our consciousness. when rooted in the principles of spiritual awareness, changes our attitudes. It also changes our words. If our consciousness is rooted in spiritual awareness, we will have spiritually aware attitudes. and we will express these attitudes with the new words that reflect our consciousness.

The more we learn about our attitudes within the context of spiritual awareness. the more conscious we become. The proof of our awareness is seen in how we live out our day-to-day existence. The manner in which we treat others, the words we use to describe ourselves and others and the depth of our internal silence reflect how much peace we have. Another evidence of our awareness is how effortless it is to manifest those things in the world that are for our highest good.

Simply put. our attitude, which is fundamental to the words we use, will bring into being that which we dwell upon in our speech. Words have power!
