Daily Inspiration: November 30. The Power of Listening to Yourself through Others
We are all One, thus when you are listening to another, you are in actuality listening to a part of yourself. When your higher-self is not able to get a message through to you, then it calls out to the Universe for help and healing. The Universe then calls for volunteers, “other parts of you”, to share with you, what you have been failing to hear. Who ever is communicating with you, is who has volunteered, to bring the message forth. Do not kill the messengers. In fact, offer them gratitude for bringing into your awareness, what you have been failing to hear. Whenever a brother or sister is speaking to us, it is always in service to us, thus listening to, and being grateful for what they are saying, is the proper and honorable response to their service. There are very few acts of self-awareness, love and self-love, greater than that of listening, of truly paying attention to, what it is you are trying to communicate to yourself through others. Those brothers and sisters that are in front of you are messengers, sent to you by God, so that you may better hear what He has been trying to help you become aware of. They are here to help us hear, what our ego’s has been blocking from our own self-awareness. It is for this reason, that appreciation is the appropriate responses to our interaction with them. When someone helps you hear what you have been blocking from your own self-awareness, is that not an act of kindness, a gift that they are offering you? Note, that out of over seven billion people, God has chosen those who are in front of you, and that they, through the act of free will, have volunteered to help you better hear, so that you can more quickly heal.
Why is it that we are not taught the art of listening in school? Listening to another of God’s children, in an open and non-judgmental manner, is an act of love, and love is who we are. Every moment, when properly perceived, is a gift from God to us. Thus, everything that a brother or sister says to us, is in one way or another, a gift that when properly perceived and received, can help lift us to a higher level of consciousness and a deeper sense of self-awareness. When you are not listening to another, you are in essence, denying God’s gift to you. Today, accept God’s gift, aligned with love, and listen to what God is trying to say to you through others. When you are judging what another person is saying, you are in essence judging God’s gift to you. When the ego tries to convince you that what another is saying is boring or not worthwhile, you are in essence, rejecting your time with God. You will never find true peace of mind and joy, as long as you are continuously unconsciously judging, denying and rejecting, God’s gifts. Today, let us make a serious effort, to listen to what God’s children are trying to share with us. As symbols that you are truly listening, place your shoulders, body and feet, facing them, and continue to face them, and only them, throughout their efforts to communicate with you. Look deeply into their eyes and imagine them as the only person on Earth. Remember that God has sent them to you, and rejoice that God so loves you that He has sent His child to you. Set your focus on them, do not interrupt, and listen until they have said all that they have to say. Yes, we have been programmed by the ego in such a way, that this may not seem like an easy thing to do. But do not despair, when your attention begins to fade, simply remind yourself of your goal, and that the person who is in front of you, has been sent to you by God.
Today, when ‘others’ are talking to us, and the ego tries to convince us to judge, be bored, frustrated or angry by, what others are saying to us and “bringing up,” let us quiet the ego, send them a silent blessing, and continue to listen without judgment. Let us remember, that our goal today, is to be fully present. To be fully present means to listen without judging, while being patient, grateful and understanding. When we practice doing so, because we are in essence listening to a part of ourselves, we are practicing loving our whole-self. We are remembering, that we are worthy of hearing God’s message. Today, in every interaction, our primary goal is to listen without judgment, to truly pay attention with our whole heart, mind and soul. Then after the interaction, let us offer our gratitude to God and to His messengers. If you find yourself being distracted by the ego’s noise, such as insisting that the person in front of you is not worthy of your time, remember your goal for the day, and return your focus to the gift that God is offering you. Remind yourself that God has sent them to you and you to them. Show them your patience, gratitude and understanding, for their presence, efforts and message. We are all One, every single time that you get to practice being patient, grateful and understanding, you are in essence learning that you are also worthy of these efforts. The more respectful you are to other parts of you, the more you will feel that all of you is worthy of being heard by God. The more you feel that God is actually listening to you, the more at peace and joyful you will become. All this thanks to your simple effort, to become a kinder and more respectful listener.
Today, in every interaction, let us remember, that our goal is to practice listening without judgment. Let us remember, that because God is Love and All, that every moment, and thus every interaction, is here as a gift from God to us. Each person we interact with, is in essence God’s messenger, here to help us hear something that our own ego has block from our self-awareness. Because of this block, your higher-self has ask for external help. All calls for help are answered, and so God heard your call and then placed a call out to the Universe for volunteers to help you hear what your own ego was blocking. The ego may try to intervene, by telling you that what this ‘other’ person is saying is boring, not worth listening to, unworthy of you, or just plain wrong. These reactions, have in truth nothing to do with them. These reactions, are just symbols that the ego is trying to block you, from what you are needing to hear. Today, notice when the ego is trying to block you, then simply use its efforts to trigger in you, the desire to once again fully focus on your goal.
