Power of Communications Part 1

Socrates said, "The misuse of language induces evil in the soul." He wasn't talking about grammar. To misuse language is to use it the way politicians and advertisers do, for profit, without taking responsibility for what the words mean. Language used as a means to get power or make money goes wrong: it lies. Language used as an end in itself, to sing a poem or tell a story, goes right, goes towards the truth.

SAVA'S Response-> That is on point buddy as you can see the correlation in Right Speech in the Buddhist Philosophy. Words used for personal gain are nothing more then selfish manipulations that ultimately only bring suffering and destruction.

Exactly! Also leads me to another point. See Politicians, Scientists, Theologist, etc, use power of language. Often with just a thought language can be mis-used. When a person tells a straight up lie; "The sky is falling", normally everyone knows it for what it is. The lie resonates throughout your spirit as "wrong", however when for example a politician speaks, the lie doesn't instantly resonate.

The reason being it is cloaked with Half-truths. Mixed with truths and self-brainwashing to believe the lies, these politicians manipulate and control our society.

These "cloaked" lies send mixed signals. Mixed signals are better for their purposes than direct signals because they cause doubt. Doubt is all that is needed for manipulation to work at its apex.

Worse thing is that we are "sleepwalkers" Reason I say that is for example, 911, too much information leads to the truth, which illustrates that this was a terrible incident launched by our own clandestine government.
Why? Why then have we not "revolted"?

Instead America as a whole simply sleepwalks, they comment, just like those that talk in there sleep but have not awakened to act. I know the reasons why, the very core values of the spirit we cherish are at risk, Family, Friend, Career, Comfort ability. So we will wag our tails, huff and puff about change, but people like Dick Chaney are still in office doing what they do. All this is done by the control of communication whether it is language, media, or science.

Man, it is absolutely a fuckin shame that we can't have trust in our own spiritual media like the Bible, Qur'an, and Torah. That we intimately know that following the text blindly condemn our spirituality, yet in not doing so shows no faith and condemn us again, it is a double-edged blade, either way your fucked. I just want to spread a correct verbal communication to my friends and loved one; "with great power comes great responsibility" (Uncle Ben to Peter Parker aka Spider Man)

Know that "Words" are a form of that great power and you have a responsibility and accountability to everyone you speak to. So, tell the truth, if you can't simply state you can't. If you identify this flaw you can then take action to correct it. Understand that sometimes the truth hurts and if it will destroy someone, then it is best to understand that it may not be time to reveal it. Sometimes the truth needs time. If you find yourself communicating arrogantly, angrily or condescendingly then take a time out to "check your programming" then re-communicate the message with "compassion, understanding and respect" you will find that this sort of communication is liberating because people "get it".

If we learn to master our communication we can enjoy our "awareness" so much more. I see the wrestling of this communication error as one of the multiple steps to understanding the spirit and ultimately "God". "Right speech will lead you to a full circle to Right Actions, Right Thoughts and ultimately to Right Living"
