Today we are going back in time to the 40s when this poster was on the walls at Bletchley Park. When I visied in 2019, it was interesting to see the baracks of the code breakers from WWII where they worked and slept. And of course in the offices these posters were everywhere, they tried to remind everyone that keeping the secrete of what was being worked on in that place needed to remain hidden or the "enemy" can change their information at a drop of a hat, making the code breaker's job that much harder.
How does this relate to our lives as people in 2021? Well, if we consider that often our thoughts can become words, and our words can be either kind or not, I think it is super relevant. "Careless talk costs lives", maybe not literally speaking, but figuratively any word uttered can have huge implications for us. A thought is just a thought, it comes and goes, but once we give it form through using our voice box, it becomes real. It gets a form, that travels through time and space. Of course, if that which we are saying is positive then what we get back if more often than not positive. And if you say negative stuff, what you will notice is that negative things come back. So here's an experiment you can do, if you wish, try saying "no" repeatedly for 5 minutes to yourself in a loud voice - see how your bod feels, then try and say the word "yes" for the same amount of time and see how your body feels. I bet you will notices that with every "no" you say your body will feel lower and lower and lower, whilst hearing the word "yes" you will find your body feel lighter and ligther.
So then I want you to consider, in your life time, how often were you praised? How often and who spoke nicely, lovingly towards you? How often do you have loving, caring, positive words to say to yourself about yourself? What kind of words do you use? Do you tend to use positive words? Do you tend to use negative words? what is the message you are putting out in the world?What is it you are hoping to receive back?
The poster also says "Don't forget the walls have ears" - if you take that literally then the whole universe is listenign to every word you are saying, every thought that is uttered or not is being picked up, just like when s fly gets caught in the spider's web, the spider may not be "home" and yet will show up instantly knowing that dinner is served. Just like each thread in the web of a spider, every vibration of our words, or thoughts reverberates across time and sapce and the universe, and will be done. They also say that a smile is contagious, try frowning at someone who is smiling at you, in the same way if you think positive thoughts and you repeat them, the body and the mind will go towads that positive thought.
Have you ever thrown a stone into the water just to see the water ripple away in multiple ripples starting from the middle and getting wider and wider as it transfers the energy across the surface of the water, in the same way a thought is thrown out in the universe and it ripples across time and space.
So, what will be your next word?!
