Daily Inspiration: August 2. Listening Is Both an Act of Kindness and Growth – Condensed Version
Listening, truly paying attention, is a wonderful and beautiful act of kindness. We are all One, and so when anyone else is speaking to us, it is also a part of God that is doing so. When anyone else is speaking to us, they represent that part of ourselves that we have failed to listen to, and so our brother and sister takes over for that unheard part of us, so that we may begin to listen to it, through them. Listening to others, is thus not only an act of love, but equally so, an act of self-love. So many times during the day, we interrupt each other, unconsciously teaching ourselves that what our brother or sister has to say is of less importance than what we have to say. Yet, out of seven billion plus people on this planet, God has put him or her specifically in front of you, so that you may hear His message through them.
Today, let us remember, that the person before us, speaking to us, is God’s messenger. God is trying, in every moment, to reach us. When we learn to truly listen to another, The Divine is teaching us, that we are worthy of hearing His message and being One with God. Today, deny the ego when it tells you that others aren’t worth the time or effort, for we are all One, and so when you deny another their sense of worth, you deny your own self-worth. When you are constantly unconsciously denying your worth, you will feel unworthy of God. This is where the ego wants you, separate from God and aligned with it. Today, if you find your mind drifting away from what others are saying, recall that is just the ego trying to take your attention away from the sacred nature of this moment, it is in essence, trying to silence God.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
