“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. This is how the Christian bible starts.
The ancient Indian Vedas reveal that the sound vibration “aum” or “om” produces the cosmos.
Modern scientists explain, through sub-atomic physics, how creation is built on energy, vibration and, ultimately, sound.
Mantras are powerful sound/word constructions that empower the chanter to raise his/her awareness and consciousness.
My experience is, whether you look at this in spiritual, mystical or very earthly tangible terms, what we speak we become.
When we speak we create our present, and thus our future, through sound vibration.
Our speech, that being what we say and also what we do not say, determines what we think, how we meet others, how we connect with others, ongoing relationships and trust.
In short, not only are we what we eat, but it is also true to observe: “We are our word”.
