Rhetoric about the futility of words as a form of expression is using words as its form of expression…. and yet it is powerful enough that everyone knows the phrase “A picture is worth a thousand words” or “Words could never explain.” And at some point for many, this is an accepted reality, even though it is just a collection of the very articles of expression they deem useless. So why not use words for something more constructive? If words are supposed to fulfill the role of pinpointing exact reality then frustration or disappointment is pretty much a direct consequence. Words aren’t reality but they create inner-experiences and mindsets and open up *~new avenues of perception~* and therefore have the ability to inspire new relationships to reality. Words are magic and they link up so powerfully to our beliefs and the reality we allow or disallow ourselves to experience. It is no coincidence that Mercury (the planet of communication) and Gemini are linked to the Magician archetype!
