The words of the reckless pierce like swords,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Proverbs 12:18 NIV.
I thought the pictures, below, might suffice for a thousand more words (as in the idiom, “a picture is worth a thousand words”) on the importance of communicating with positive messages and with kindness. These and other images are from the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto and presented in his book The Miracle of Water. To shed insight on his work, from a review here, this synopsis: “Masaru Emoto reflects on water’s ability to transmit the energy of resonance—necessary not only for life on earth but also for our own happiness. He has photographed thousands of water crystals, but the most beautiful crystals are those formed after the water is exposed to the words ‘love and gratitude.'”
If adult humans are 57-60% water, the meaning of the effects of positive and negative actions on water-infused organisms warrants thoughtful consideration, if just figuratively, though perhaps literally as well if one takes into regard Dr. Emoto’s hypothesis.
