The magic of sweet words can dissolve all differences and anger, which eventually causes the war inside us. When this rage is purged out, it leads to death and destruction, causing massive loss to life and property. Lord Buddha has rightly said, “Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care, for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.” Therefore, we need to not only acquaint ourselves with the deadly consequences of wars but also need to adopt a preventive strategy to avert these wars; this peaceful, miraculous strategy is the use of sweet words.
Besides, if we have love for each other in our hearts, if we recognize the differences among us and learn to accept them rather than let them become causes of wars, and if we talk to each other sweetly and politely, then we can bring about peace in this world. Sweet words can not only heal deep wounds but also prevent big wars from occurring.
So let the destructive weapons of wars be replaced by sweet words of our speech. It is stated in the ebook "7 Minutes to Your Happiness" that "the use of sweet words alone can create a positive environment for nurturing happiness that also promotes harmony among the people." Knowing that the use of sweet words can resolve differences and pacify anger, you can assert that the possibility of a peaceful world is not so far.
