The Spoken Words of Spirit--October 14, 2011
Intentions are only helpful if they are of good, loving and positive value. To have any thoughts, no matter how brief, that are not designed to improve someone, then we would advise you to retract those concepts as quickly as possible. The only one who truly gets hurt when you are wishing bad things on others is the person sending them. If someone has hurt you; if someone is trying to bring you down, it is of the utmost importance to remember that it means you are already seen by them as being above them.
When we refer to “being above someone,” it is meant as a measure of your character and the way you carry yourself through life. While you may feel momentary pleasure in going toe to toe with someone who repeatedly tries to hurt you under any circumstances, in general, you will be bringing yourself down to their level. In a sense, that means they have bullied or baited you into stooping to a form of behavior that is not aligned with the beautiful principles of spiritual living. Why would you ever want to get in the mud with people who are already proving that their outlook on life is well below the standards that the Creator wanted for all people?
While there will be many times in your life that you have to protect yourself, it does not have to be protracted. Use your intelligence; use the Higher Intelligence that is always sitting within you. As this happens, the reality of wallowing in the same dirt as a less spiritual person will begin to take shape. People are often motivated to do bad things, or to live a life of anger and evil for several reasons. It could be something as simple, yet complicated from an earthly standpoint, that they have a new or young soul. It could be caused by greed, ego, arrogance or the basic thought that they need to pump themselves up by stepping on others. Lying, thieving and blustering are all components of insecure people.
Our goal, with this message, is very sound and basic. You must monitor your actions to insure your own long-term well-being. You must be able to look back and be proud of your accomplishments. If there is a real threat, of course you have the right to defend yourself! Ask others who can aid you to step in, or be the one to step in to protect those who are a target of the types of negative actions we speak of. You can and will make a difference! You can, will and do make the world around you better, thereby making the universe a more joyous place to be. With thanks to you for understanding this, we give you The Spoken Words of Spirit.
