The Spoken Words of Spirit--January 13, 2012
Many people take the time to praise complete strangers but will snap at their family and closest friends for the slightest infractions. We wonder why this is the case when it is these same people who are trying to elevate and lift you up; to support you when you are feeling down or disheartened. Our point is that if you can be patient with someone you do not know, then it would be beneficial to carry that same respect for those who are more prominently in your life.
Likewise, it is probably more important for you to give yourself the benefit of the doubt if you have made some form of mistake. The human race is very good at quickly turning their ire inward when some aspect of what they were trying to do goes awry, but they will not be discourteous to someone who is greedy, bullies or intentionally treats them or others with disdain. Our job--as your teachers of Light--is to remind you that having self-respect is one of the keys to living a life that will gain in passion, good health and prosperity. It must begin with the immediate desisting of ridiculing yourself.
If you abided by the virtues of life as seen through the eyes of the most spiritually enlightened, then you would comprehend the importance of your actions. While you might think that self-flagellation is only harming yourself, you must rethink that premise. If you are not living up to the principles that are acceptable for others to live by, how do you think the people around you are going to react to your efforts? Everything you do reflects in the way you are absorbed by your family, friends and acquaintances. In other words, if you are belittling yourself, that energy spills into everything else that you do. Whether you realize it or not, it can be felt by anyone associated with you. Think about the impact you want to have on society. Treat yourself with love and fairness. Expand those virtues and the energy you espouse will be much more appreciated by all. These are The Spoken Words of Spirit.
