Daily Inspiration: October 24. Saying “No” In a Loving Manner – Condensed Version
The ego has taught us that saying “no” is rude, creates conflict, seems selfish, and makes us feel guilty and unloving for expressing ourselves in that manner. The ego has also programmed us to believe that saying “yes”, when you really mean no, should make us feel resentful, thus making us feel bad or weak-minded. And so as always, the ego’s solutions are, in one manner or another, judgmental, self-destructive and end up separating us from each other. Today, understanding the controlling mind games that the ego tries to play on us, let us instead of feeling the pressure to offer a response, say to the individual: “Let me get back to you on that.” This will give you the opportunity slow down time enough to put aside the ego’s demands, and practice consciously aligning with your true loving nature.
Today, when ask if you can do something for another, take an extra few moments to practice consciously aligning with the truth in you, and ask yourself what would be the most self-loving and self-respecting thing to say or do. The more you practice this conscious alignment with your true nature, the more love you will have to offer to others. When you answer from a place of self-love, it is not because you are selfish, it is because you have remembered that because we are all One, the most internally loving response is what will shine the most love onto this world. A self loving response, is the most loving response that you can offer another. Your response has nothing to do with a ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ it has to do with love, and so when you align with love, whatever that response may be, it will be a loving response.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
