The Spoken Words of Spirit--December 14, 2011

What are your choices when something goes wrong in your life? How do you react if someone causes you harm, either emotionally or physically? We ask these two basic questions for a reason. If you tend to be impulsive, then your friends in spirit suggest to you that you take a few seconds to respond. This will enable you to think about the reactions to your reaction. In other words, it gives you time to answer the problem without infusing more agitation into the situation. We find that many issues are more easily disposed of when both parties do not stoop to levels of immaturity and irrational thinking.

There will always be times in your life when the pressures of the season may get to be too tense for some. That causes reactive attitudes that can often inflame a situation that would die out in a hurry. Provided you are not in immediate harm, it is always going to be helpful if you digest what is occurring and reply in the appropriate ways of spiritual principles. It does you no good to go toe to toe with someone who is not abiding by the virtues of “do no harm.” Teach them; not by showing them up, but by showing them you are above their outrage.

The holiday season should represent a time of compassion, generosity and love. Yet it is during this same timeframe that we frequently see people snap at one another. They push and shove their way to try to get a basic toy, or perhaps just to beat someone out one spot in a line to pay for their purchases. Try to change that pattern of selfishness by holding a door open, or simply greeting someone with a smile. If all people tipped the scales towards the side of selflessness, then there would be no sniping or nastiness. Be the amazing soul that you are and show the world how to live according to all the gracious “laws” that make you life a fascinating and fun thing to have. It will always be better to be tempered in your remarks so that nothing can be misinterpreted. All we ask is that you do your best and do not get bogged down in picayune actions. Lovingly, these are the thoughts from The Spoken Words of Spirit.

It would be so lovely if we put down the material gifts this time of year and give the gift of love and compassion to all we know. I have such good friends and family who have provided the compassion I needed and I could think of no better gift..now or anytime during the year. Life is moving so terribly fast that we are not enjoying what really matters which is helping others and enjoying the love of friends and family. Love and joy to you and yours this holiday season and always.

I love the Christmas season. It is my favorite time of the year when all the family comes together.
I used to find this a tense time, but not anymore. I simply enjoy every minute with the children; big and small.

God Bless you, Jim Our Angel for these words of spirit :-)**
