The Spoken Words of Spirit--March 16, 2012
Time changes people. People can change in time. Either way, nobody is ever so entrenched in their behavior that they cannot make adjustments of body, mind and soul. It is something that many of you need to keep in mind when you have to see or speak to someone who may have intentionally or unintentionally caused you some amount of grief in the past. Holding onto to the expectations that once you have been hurt, you will always be hurt, is nothing more than a precedent for failure.
Sometimes you need to take a step back and examine yourself. Are you someone who tends to blame everyone and everything else for your problems and misfortunes? Do you scrutinize everything little thing to find fault with another person or their actions? It is an easy trap to fall into. One area of spiritual growth that will make your life unfold more easily is the path of taking on responsibility for your own missteps, misjudgments and mistakes. When you fall into a routine of looking to find blame in everyone else, many times the culprit is yourself. Have you noticed that the unhappiest people are the ones who seem to be finding ways to do battle with many others? They create an image in their mind that they have been wronged when the reality is that frequently they are the ones who have caused the problems.
We are bringing this topic up for a strong reason. As the world grows in turmoil and changes loom ahead, personal vibes begin to take on an entirely new meaning. Patience runs short and the air of responsibility turns into a pattern of errors and not taking responsibility. As spiritually enlightened beings, learn to step back and fairly look at all situations. Before you lash out at those who are innocent of wrongdoing, or who have done nothing but stood by you in times of hardships, take a look at your reflection and make sure you have no part in being at fault for the disagreement. In most cases, a few minutes of truthful inflection will stem the tide of outbursts that cannot be easily be corrected.
The power of your words is a formidable tool in your arsenal of emotions. Use and choose them wisely. Speak them with angelic tones. Bless those who you are bothered by and praise those who have helped you. Above all else, apologize to those you have hurt and forgive those who have asked for it. Be an icon of love; not a victim of sourness. These are The Spoken Words of Spirit.
