How many times have we complained about others not listening to us? Being all One, “others out there” are simply reflecting our internal condition, the beliefs that we hold about the world. When not feeling listened to, ask yourself, where in my life am I not listening to myself? Anytime we experience judgmental behavior towards self or others, negativity, hurt, anger, stress or worry, there is a part of us that feels not listen to, that is asking to be heard, helped and healed. If you do not listen to those parts of you that are struggling or in pain, then that pain will begin to grow, louder and louder. This is when you begin to externalize your pain. The unconscious pain that is within you will overflow, and this overflowing or projection will begin to affect those around you. If you are looking at “others” and seeing them with something other than love, then what you are really seeing is your internal struggle, conflict and pain. You do so in order to better help you see what is separating you from your natural state, the state of peace. This separation from your natural state, is not due to others or their actions, but of how you have been programmed to view and interpret them and their actions. The true call for healing is never “out there,” it is within you. Heal your misperceptions, the ways that you are hearing, viewing, defining and interacting with this world, and you will begin to see and experience a more loving and attentive world. Once you see only the love in others as true, because Love is your Creator, this will be a symbol that you are listening to only the truth in them. When love becomes your response to a call for love, that will be a symbol of one who is truly listening to what others are saying. If not aligned with love, then know that there is something you are trying to tell yourself, that you are not yet listening to. That there is something within you that is asking to be heard, helped and healed.
Today, let us pay very close attention to how we are treating ourselves, because this will send a signal to others, on how they are to treat us. Others simply take cues on how to treat you, by how you treat yourself. How you consciously or unconsciously treat yourself, opens the door to how you will allow others to treat you. Thus, if you feel like others are not listening to you, be assure that somewhere in your life, you are not listening to yourself. If you are not listening to yourself, then the world, which is here to help you heal and awaken, will physically manifest itself in a form that will be an expression of what it is that you are not hearing. Understand that others are not listening to you, not because they don’t know how, but because they are showing you that you are not paying attention to yourself. For showing us this, let us offer them our gratitude, not our judgment. The more you take the time to practice honoring what you yourself are trying to tell yourself, the more “others” will treat you in the same manner. The sooner you get to that wound within that is in need of being heard and helped, the sooner that wound will begin to heal and seal. When a wound is listened to and healed, a sense of balance and the state of peace result. When others see that you have heard, and thus healed yourself, they will desire to listen to you, because they too desire to healed. It is in this healed state, when you communicate from a place of love, balance and peace, that others will naturally want to pay attention and listen to you. They will want to listen to what you have to say, because the state of mind that you will be expressing, will remind them of their true eternal essence and Home.
Today, when we see, feel or experience, any emotional pain “out there,” we will recall that this physical expression is really an internal call for help and healing. Let us answer this call for help and healing, not through judgment of self or others, but by helping and healing. Let us also be grateful for this opportunity to heal, for being all One, when we help heal others we heal ourselves. Let us for a moment, stop and listen to what is really being communicated through the physical form. Let us recall that someone’s external reflection and manifestation of pain, is just a symbol of one who is hurt and not truly being heard. Being all One, today let us realize, that anytime we are not being loving towards others, that is simply a signal that we are not listening to, nor are at peace with, ourselves. Judgment of self or others, negative, hurtful, angry, stressed out or worried, these are all symbols of one who is failing to listen to the pain within. Today, let us use such emotions, not to condemn ourselves or others, but to trigger in us the desire to listen to what it is we are trying to tell ourselves. Now, let us use those unloving thoughts and emotions, to stop us on our tracks, and remind us that it is time to look within and pay attention. Today, before every interaction, let us remind ourselves: “Today, my goal is to practice non-judgment, to be still, silent, and listen with patience, love and compassion. I will know when I am achieving my goal because the state of peace will result. It will be from this place of non-judgment and peace that those who feel lost, unheard and hurt, will begin to recall that they too are worthy of being found, heard and healed.”
Today, let us recall that we are all One, and so what you see or hear “out there,” it is simply a physical reflection and representation, of your internal condition. If you are seeing and experiencing a confused and chaotic world, it is because the thoughts that you are supporting within, are defining it in that manner. If the outer world is simply a reflection of what is within, then it is within where the healing must begin. Where have you chosen not to forgive yourself or another? Why are you choosing to believe in your worries and anxiety over trusting in God’s perfect plan? These are some of the areas within yourself, that you may have yet not listen to and healed. When you learn to go within, listen to, and help heal the unhealed mind, the world you see and hear outside yourself, will also begin to soften.
