The Spoken Words of Spirit--September 6, 2011
A message from Saint Paul:
I had spent many hours of my life wasting it by judging other people. My mind had told me that I knew better what they needed, who should be in their lives and how they should be living. During that process, many enemies were made. As I was pointing the finger of blame on everyone else, my own life became one that was an easy and open target for others to judge. My sense of right and wrong were created by my personal philosophies; not by facts.
One day, the words of the Highest Master, Jesus, filtered into my awareness. Suddenly, I recognized that I wasn’t born wearing a special robe that signaled I could run over or ruin people; depending on my approach and personal attitude. This led me away from living as an unfair arbiter of everyone else’s lives. I began to be introspective to see if I could find a way to incorporate the love and appreciation I wanted for myself into my views of the rest of mankind. The first thing I adjusted was in not casting aspersions and accusing those who I may not have agreed with of doing wrongful acts when I did not know them on a personal level. This was caused by my realization that hearsay was not always going to be factual. By previously accepting all of what I was told by others who were only looking out for themselves, or from my own ignorant assumptions, my recognition that I hurt many innocent people gnawed at me deeply in a physical sense, as well as deep into my soul.
With great determination, my approach towards my fellow beings--whether man or woman--would be done with love at the center of my actions. I would not further damage people based on my old patterns of thinking. Every aspect of life would now be looked at from a higher perspective, and not from viewing everyone from a “bottom up” thought process. This would lead my life to enormous changes. Where I had intentionally taken advantage of some in the past, my new way of living life was to determine everything based on a highest purpose approach. Perhaps you could say that I began to fall into a “what would Jesus do” mentality. However, I was well aware that it would be my own judicious viewpoints that were foremost in importance. No longer would I devalue anyone without first hearing, seeing, or being part of their daily existence.
The purpose of sharing this with each of you is quite simple. It is to have each one of you live in the way of truth; not in the way of greed, impurities in your thinking, or in ways that are not helping to add to life in the best way possible. I always found it a simple thing to think that people were not inherently good or telling the truth. Unfortunately, I had done this most when they were of those qualities. From the moment I had my awakening, the only mission for me was to incorporate love and fairness into all of my actions. It was to be a teacher of living in a non judgmental way, where my words and actions would be spewing the pure essence of infinite potential; to bring out the good in humankind.
Each of you have the potential I speak of. You are, without a doubt, an angel of love, but you must be warned that living in negative mindsets can be an easy trap. When you grow in your life; your careers, you also open the door to pompousness. This is where I share with you that to become powerful does not mean to overwhelm others with arrogance. Whether it is intended or not, really makes no difference. From this day forward, you have the ability to live with help, guidance, love and appreciation for all people. You can and should do what you are able to do to give assistance to the weaker in society without taking advantage of your stature. Blend the power of angelic breath into your own, so that you become a positive force of life for all people. Are you ready to break out of your unhealthy habits? With love, these are The Spoken Words of Spirit.
