No Mere Words

No Mere Words

Many believe that change and growth can come through discourse alone. That sounding off and speaking out accomplishes anything lasting. Today, just as yesterday and the day before, impassioned speeches will be delivered from the bedraggled fellow in Hyde Park speaker’s corner to the United Nations. Chances are none of them will be remembered next week, or even tomorrow for that matter in most cases. There have always been and will always be vibrant speakers. Eloquent and moving in the moment, their words perhaps even bridging time, to touch future generations. However, did their words alone truly change anything? Consider: If Churchill had not demonstrated resolve along with eloquence, would Britain have persevered against seemingly insurmountable odds? FDR spoke eloquently and with firm resolve on Dec. 8th, 1941 but the world would look like very different today if he had failed to follow through. John Kennedy did not just speak about going to the moon; he said we would within ten years and put into motion the foundation to accomplish this amazing feat. Mother Teresa did not merely speak about love and service but demonstrated it by living and prospering in conditions that few of us can truly comprehend.

These individuals were dynamic. Yes, they spoke with eloquence, but what made them dynamic was making their words real, turning eloquence into action. Though we may never reach the levels of renown of these dynamic individuals, being dynamic is part and parcel of Living on the Spiritual Basis. Faith without works is dead, sweet words and promises mean nothing, actually becoming destructive, if the appropriate action does not follow. None of us walks the way we talk all the time, but it is a goal worth shooting for. So, strive to be dynamic, and though you may lack eloquence, your actions and demonstration in Spirit carries more weight, and lasting permanent value, than any mere words alone.
