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 is speaking to us, it is also a part of God that is doing so. Being all One, when anyone else is speaking to us, they represent a part of us that we have not yet heard. Listening to others is thus not only an act of love, but also of self-love. So many times during our conversations we interrupt each other. By doing so we teach ourselves that not every part of us is worthy of listening to. Yet, out of almost 8 billion people on this planet, God has put him or her, specifically in front of you. God is in essence trying to speak to you, through them. Yet still, the ego continues to try to convince you not to pay attention. Being all One, if we are not truly paying attention, then we are not fully respecting ourselves.

Today, let us recall that the person before us, speaking to us, is God’s messenger.  When we are fully present we hear The Divine sharing what aspect of Love we are, in this moment, meant to be. Today, deny the ego when it tries to convince you that others aren’t worth your time or effort. Being all One, when you deny their worth, you dismiss your own self-worth, and thus feel unworthy of hearing God’s message. Today, if you find your mind drifting away from what others are saying, note that this is just the ego trying to silence God’s message. Reject the ego’s efforts by acknowledging to yourself the gift that God has placed before you. Be silent, and keep your full attention on what they are saying. Then offer your gratitude to God for His message, guidance and messengers.

All glory to God.

Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
