The Spoken Words of Spirit--December 5, 2011
When someone is “going downhill,” what does it mean to you? Some people automatically jump to a negative conclusion that whoever it is that is heading in that direction is doing poorly. It is natural, human nature to do such a thing. Yet, why is it that if you hear someone is going downhill that you don’t assume that means that they reached their goals and are now coasting, much like a great skier who starts at the top of a mountain and swooshes down to the bottom? Like all of life, perspective is everything.
You must take some time not to have a knee-jerk reaction to any words that might sound negative, but are not necessarily so. Often, the people who struggle in life have a habit of assuming the worst in everything, until it is proved otherwise to them. It is a tough way to go through life because everything is more difficult. Assumptions almost always get in the way of reality, just as they cause the inability to make rational decisions in many cases. We are asking you to make sure you keep your thoughts away from the magnetic pull that “going negative” can create. It is far better to be positive on all counts.
We might point out that the same reactions take place when you might hear that there are mountains to climb. Why not expect that the mountains are bringing you to scenic beauty and the ability to see things from a higher, better perspective? Staying on flat ground--symbolically speaking--will never get your mind and imagination to reach the pinnacle of happiness you deserve. It is time for you to step beyond the boundaries of your habits and safe zone so that you can explore more and more about your life. This is what your loved ones want as they watch you from the side of love and Light. Embrace the power of your future success by not expecting that any vague set of words or someone’s unexpected actions are going to be something foreboding. Embrace the love that shines upon you from the powers of heaven! These are The Spoken Words of Spirit.
