Daily Inspiration: October 24. Saying “No” In a Loving Manner – Condensed Version

The ego has taught us that saying “no” to someone’s request is rude, creates conflict and seems selfish. This makes us feel guilty and unloving for saying “no.” The ego has also programmed us to believe that saying “yes,” when we actually mean no, should make us feel resentful. This then makes us feel bad or weak-minded. As always, the ego’s solutions are in one form or another judgmental, self-destructive and end up separating us from each other. Today, let us place the ego’s programming aside and if need be, say to the individual, “I will get back to you on that.” This statement will give you the time you need to align with your truth, your loving nature. Then you can ask your heart: “What is the most genuine and self-loving response I can offer? What response will bring me the most peace?”

Today, if you are asked to do something for another, stop for a moment, align with the loving truth in you, and ask yourself, “What would be the most self-loving response?” Being all One, the most self-loving response is the most loving response you can offer another. Now when you answer from a place of self-love, it is not because you are selfish. It is because you know that what benefits one benefits all. In truth, your response has nothing to do with a yes or no. It has to do with love. Now, because you align with love, whatever your response may be, it will be a loving one. The truth in others is not really interested in your yes or no response. It is interested in your love. Thus, when you come from a place of love, that is the answer that the truth in others really wants to hear.

All glory to God.

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

Thank u – excellent help in decision making responses. Had not seen addressed in this way before. Very applicable to me -especially when I need to provide expert comments, opinion, recommendations re cases in which I am involved – sometimes even the need to consider if I should exit involvement in the situation.

Thank you Louisa for being a member of our community.

You have co-created a perfect and individualized journey with the Creator of the Universe.

Each step along your sacred path, each decision that you make on that path, will be used, if you allow it to, by God for good.

Before every decision, align with the love that in truth you are, allow love to decide for you, and it will.

Today, be love, in all of its forms and expressions, and feel them surround and embrace you throughout your day.

Peace. JBC
