The “Word of God ” is something Christians talk about regularly. The bible has a line, John 1:1 in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. That last part is interesting. The word was God. Is there a misconception about the word of God? Is it really only scripturehanded down from a supreme being to us about how to live our lives.
What are words?
Words are the verbal or written manifestations of thought. If God is the creator and God is the WORD then are words the creator? The creator is the thing doing the thinking. Which is you. Speaking or writing the words means you are creating which is to say you’re speaking the Word of God. The words you use are creating your reality, it becomes clear that in addition to controlling thoughts, it is equally important to be careful with the words that are spoke or written. What are the results when words are spoken to inspire? What reality is created from an inspiring speech? What reality is created when words are used to hurt someone. Have you ever said something with the intention of making some one feel good? What did that create? All things are manifestations of thought, but none are so easily created and shared as WORDS.
Blasphemy has an official contemporary definition.
a : the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God
If God is the word then the definition should read; the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for WORDS.
True blasphemy has nothing to do with insulting some higher deity, or offending a supreme being. True blasphemy is any word or other creation of thought that would result in an unpleasant experience in your own reality or the reality for someone else.
Here are some examples of blasphemy:
We can’t afford it.
I am not…….
These are all examples of creations of impure thoughts and are true blasphemy as they will only create undesirable experiences. When faced with something unpleasant see if there is an opportunity to catch ones self saying “This always happens.” Remember what true blasphemy is and
adjust you thoughts and speech. Don’t think of it as keeping your thoughts pure, think of it as keeping your eye on the ball. Keep your thoughts only on those things and events that you truly would enjoy experiencing in life. Careful how you speak. Always be speaking in the positive. Positive speech is a easy habit to develop. Try this exercise. Though out the course of an entire week. Respond positively about every event you encounter or have already experienced. Other people will give you opportunities to do this. Some one may ask “Hey how was your weekend? Did you enjoy the movie? Did you go to the game? The question may even be as simple as
how are you doing?” These interactions with other people are opportunities for you to respond positively. You don’t have to lie to people. Maybe an entire movie sucked. There had to be one part of it that was good. Even if was just the credits. Then say, “I really enjoyed the credits.” Instead of “I hated the whole movie.” The point is to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. When doing this you will see a difference in the way you experience reality. Small but important changes will appear. You will notice more and more good things. You will experience more good things. Be conscious of these good things. At the end of your day when you are writing in your journal, recall these good things and feel grateful for them. Express in words gratitude for them no matter how small they seem.
Negative speech isn’t always so simple as,” I can’t …..” And sometimes can be hard to identify as actually being negative. Focusing your mind on
the positive is a skill and a habit. Develop the skill and form a good habit. You will see positive results in your life and the world around you.
