      Judaism holds what is fundamentally holy is not a place, a person or a power. What is fundamentally holy is words.

      II
      We have the ability to create with our words; to start to bring into being what we truly want out of the infinite potential of our own soul. Just as the creation of the universe began with words and is sustained with words, so too every creative process. The words we use actually bring things to life.

      (Lessons taken from Revelation - Torah from Heaven by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks and The Kabbalah of Words by Shifra Hendrie)

      Have a great day!

        The tongue has the power to drastically change situations. In fact, the word "tongue" (Lashon) is composed of the Hebrew letters Lamed, Vav, Shin, and Nun, "Change" (Shinuy) belongs to it as it is made up of the same central letters.

        II
        All things produce good and ill effects, for example, water sustains life, but it can also flood lands and drown. Speech, too, can help or harm. But only speech can fix its own ill effects.

          What greater praise could there be for someone than to tell others about the challenges aperson has successfully overcome? This is born out by the well known declaration of our sages that says that not even a righteous person can stand in the place of a ba'al teshuva. However, if one were to consider the situation from a personal perspective, the wisdom of this prohibition becomes obvious.

          A person who has remade themselves does not want to be reminded of what they used to be. Moreover, the person certainly does not want others to know them for the person they used to be. They may find this revelation embarrassing and may worry that their image is lowered in other people's eyes. In any case, bringing up the past forces the person to reconnect with it, even though they may have left it far behind.

            The mood of the person you are speaking with will be a key factor in how sensitive they will be to what you are saying. When a person is in a good mood and feels happy, they will be more receptive and are less likely to be offended by what others say.  

            II
            When a person is in a bad mood, however, they are likely to become angry or distressed by comments that usually would not bother them. Therefore if you see that a person is very tired or in an especially irritable mood, be very careful with what you say to them. Things that will not bother them when calm will irritate them very much in the present state. At such moments it is wise to remain silent and stay out of the person's way. Later, when the person is in a better mood, discuss those issues you previously avoided.

              We are taught to be careful not to remind others about their past and not to to necessarily go around telling others about it. However, what greater praise could there be for someone than to tell others about the challenges a person has successfully overcome? This is born out by the well known declaration of our sages that says that not even a righteous person can stand in the place of a ba'al teshuva.
