Long ago. when the main form of communication was the written word, when the writing of letters the only way to send news afar, writers would employ much thought for every word, with each phrase carefully chosen. By no means, would the author risk the chance of being misunderstood, for, too much energy and time would be wasted. The sending and delivering of letters was an arduous task for all involved. Today, of course, the written word can be sent and received in an instant, no – one needs to be left wanting for news. You, now, have the means to be aware of the doings of family and friends wherever they should be in the world, this can be a blessing and surely better than times of old when the departure of travelers could mean no news of their welfare for months, if at all. Great hope had to be held by those left behind that all would be well. Very few of you now could imagine that situation, now, you can comfort yourself with the knowledge that you can still speak with and even see anyone, no matter the physical distance between you and they, what magic. All this is truly a beneficial and useful branch of growth for humanity but where does this leave the humble letter and its’ thoughtful writer? The written word also holds a type of magic, the physical act of putting pen to paper, forming words first birthed in the brain and heart, releases an energy within the author – one of connective intuition – knowing what words need to be written and read by the feel of them. None of this can be achieved by the typed or spoken word, for, neither have the same fluid connection to the brain or heart. Heed, we speak of written personal communication, not works of fiction or writings of practical use, they hold an entirely different energy. Ponder, if you can, a situation, in which, you have the means to send news afar but the only writing materials available to you are, a piece of bark, a stick and some charcoal, how very economical would you become with the amount of words used? Mmm, and can you see from where those words would come? The brain would demand that practical words were priority, while the heart would urge for words of comfort, any other influence would belong to the ego but the energy of the ego does not blend well with the energy of connective intuition, Its’ words, therefore, would not be included in this contracted missive. This scenario is of great benefit to remember when next you wish to communicate via technology, for, even though, you have the means to say much, to anyone in an instant – should you? Would it be the words in your brain and heart seeking release or would it be the words from your ego seeking attention? Be thoughtful with the typed or spoken word, beloved children, if in doubt write them by hand first, allow them to emerge from the right source, form them, feel them and be truly connected.
