Sometimes when I awake with thoughts swirling around me, I wonder if they’d be suitable for sharing. This morning, the thoughts seemed somewhat negative, and I wondered if they would help inspire anyone to ‘want to develop their love nature’. Then I realized that everyone is on their own level of spiritual growth and awareness, so there might be someone who would be attracted to, or respond in a positive way to a different approach.
This quote by Martin Luther King, Jr, I find inspiring: “The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you murder the hater, but you do not murder the hate. Returning violence for violence multiplies the violence, adding deeper darkness to a night devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: Only Love can do that.”
Since we tend to see our faults in others, then it would prove helpful for the development of our souls to notice what our complaints are, so we can then apply them to our own imperfections. Since we get-back what we put-out, then, if we want love and peace to prevail in our lives, we might consider becoming more loving, accepting, gentle, kind, helpful and joyful people. This inspires others to respond in kind and helps the giver benefit the most by changing their attitude, uplifting their spirit, and bringing more peace into their life.
People perpetuate their own unhappiness by the thoughts and attitudes they hold. If a person wants to feel peaceful and unafraid, they need to change their outlook by changing their thinking and motivation, their intentions and the activation of their will. It takes a sincere and prolonged desire to ‘want to develop the highest potential of your soul’. It may sound too difficult to try, but it is less difficult than continuing to live with unhappiness. Give Divine Love a chance to lift you up, by praying for Its inflowing.
When people learn to love themselves more, and understand that everyone has struggles, hopefully they might strive to love others more. Wouldn’t it be amazingly wonderful if, instead of finding fault with their fellow humans, people would love and support one another, and appreciate the good things they do?! Amen
