Rumour and gossip...

My healing card for today says, "Health promotes spirituality, and spirituality promotes health". I'm supposed to choose a spiritual truth and observe it, live it, see how 'challenging it is to let my physical life be in concert with my spiritual ideals'. 

I spend a lot of time each morning just trying to figure out what these cards are trying to tell me. 

Today I tried to identify a spiritual truth that can easily be overlooked. I came up with the power of words... speech. It's something I've been thinking about lately. My mom always encouraged me to not use very negative words and that has stuck with me. Something that I realise I fall into somewhat unconsciously is rumour and gossip, and so I figured that's what I'd look out for today. 

It sneaks up on you. 

I'm generally not one for idle chatter. I'm always the quiet one in the group. There are times though (usually when I'm at my job) that I do become a part of the rumour and gossip mill. The 'I heard...' and 'she said...' and all that comes with that. It usually happens when I'm frustrated or mad... annoyed with either the job or people in the workplace. I know that rumour and gossip can be perceived as either harmless or hurtful but... I've been thinking that either way it's a waste of my time and energy. 

Trying to be conscious of the words I use this week. Join me?
