"A dream of the future"

There is a spirit which has been scattered.
That spirit is in everything. 
 
How can the spirit be re-united? 
What enables spirit to flow freely
to move from the places where it is held
to the places where it is needed? 
 
Understanding that; enabling that; is worthy of our attention and effort.
 
Language is a way to enable the spirit to flow
but language itself needs to be liberated...
let us dream of that freedom.
 
How is it that words... little marks on the page or screen, little vibrations in the air
can release feelings? and emotion? 
can express and extend our understanding of ourselves and our possibilities? 
can help us shape, value and order our goals?
can help us realize our positive potentials?
 
Let us dream of a world in which
we can help each other realize our positive potentials.
That is a dream worth bringing to life.
 
Let us embark together
on a voyage of learning, understanding and application
as we explore the nature and power of language
guided by intention
to shape ourselves and our world.
 
A note on the picture above: To me this picture represents the idea of representation! of how we create our view of ourselves, each other and the world.
