A language possibly built for confusing, for instanceÖWe drive on the parkway and park in a drive way? lol

The more I think about the story ďTower of BabelĒ I canít help but to think how much we are being duped everyday. Not only does language separate the masses but it also promotes false outlooks on intellect and present disempowerment. Now, Iím no English Major but I do feel I select my words carefully.

At times I feel the language itself was set up to express things in terms of lack-
EX: ďHow are you?Ē You see, this short question already implies that you might not be well. We have been tricked into using words that are disempowering. To use the Hopi Indianís language is to understand that everything is one and inside of you, no need for looking outside of it and the language speaks of no lackÖmany indigenous languages have no past tense. When speaking, you influence the field around you. Everything is vibration and words do have an impact on your lifeÖprobably way more then we know. Maybe certain words unlock and/or lock certain abilities. In some cultures verbal sounds are more important then the actual word. This could be an indication of why certain racial groups respond in various ways to certain words and pitches. Sense Iím into music production, I can see how music affects people thru vibrationÖ so why not words?

Lawyers are a prime example of how the language is manipulated. They literally take your words and twist them into something else, they make fortunes doing this. Why the need for having different words with the same meaning? Or having different words that sound the same but spelled differently? Could this be purposely created to cause misunderstanding amongst the people, especially when itís been declared the international language. And Iím not going to get into it about the English superstars going around correcting other peopleís spelling and grammar, I donít know why (or care) when they do this, itís distracting and annoying, and often done to belittle others when their own arguments become weak. All in allÖI figure they do this to feel importantÖmeh. Everyoneís important. Ego, ego, ego away

Every day we use phrases and words that corrupt our desired manifestations. Below are some examplesÖ
I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, go break a leg, Iíll never get anything done, Iím feeling tired today, thatís driving me crazy, what an awful day it is outside today, I wish I knew, I donít have the time, the world is such a mess, the fighting in the Mid-East will never stop, youíre damned if you do and damned if you donít, better to do nothing, I canít do it, I donít know how, Itís too difficult, etcÖ

I can imagine other outside beings having a hard time understanding us when we use phrases like: raining cats and dogs, bite the bullet, paint the town red, kick the bucket, through the grape vine, etcÖ

And then we haveÖ"falling" in love? We often get hurt when we fall. Doesn't ascending in love sound more like love feels? Much of the disempowering comes from small talk. EX: ďI donít know but I will tryĒ . When you are trying to do something, you are not doing it. You build in failure by using the word try.
