WHAT POWER DO THOUGHTS AND WORDS HAVE UPON OUR LIVES?

This is how that question was answered by a Master of the Far East while holding a pebble in her hand:

“Let me drop this pebble into this bowl of water. You see that the vibrations caused by the pebble’s coming in contact with the water radiate from that center in ever-widening circles until they reach the rim of the bowl, or outer edge of the water; where, to the eye, they seem to lose their force and stop. What really happens is this. As soon as the vibrations have reached the limits of the water, they start on their return journey back to the place where the pebble entered the water; and they do not tarry until they reach that center. This exactly represents every thought or word we think or speak. The thought or word sets in motion certain vibrations that go out and on, in ever-widening circles, until they compass the universe. Then they return as they went forth, to the one that sent them out. Every thought or word we think or speak be it good or bad, returns to us as certainly as we send it forth.”
