The words we speak matter. The thoughts we think matter. The way we connect our thoughts and words while speaking to others matters immensely. We must be careful how we express ourselves. We do not need to overly censor, instead consider – are we delivering our message lovingly? If not, our message will not be heard. We can talk and talk but few will listen. No one wants to be preached to, condemned, belittled, dishonored, or disrespected by another’s viewpoint that may be in clear opposition to our own. But when spoken with kindness and love, when communicated with an understanding that there is always more than one side to every situation, our messages to others won’t fall on unhearing ears. Instead, we will be embraced by those who may differ or oppose us because they will be able to feel our loving nature. In this way, we don’t need to feel silenced while at the same time creating unity with others for having not caused division between those we care for, respect, and love.
Once again steps in the word I write about all the time -- “perception.” Always such a tricky attribute because we are one-minded most times, forgetting that everyone does not perceive things in the same way we perceive. Our lives are so very different – upbringing, educational paths, personal relationships, careers, life ambitions, life experiences, religion, interests, biases, likes, dislikes – these and so many other attributes define who we are. Therefore, no two people can see exactly the same on every topic. But what we can do when speaking to others is always remember they first and foremost are a soul. At their purest form, they are love -- like you. We would not purposely want to offend someone who is love. If we can bring our conversation to a higher level, a message spoken in a voice of love and harmony, the less separation we cause between ourselves and others. Less separation means more willingness to hear another’s opinion. When we are open to other opinions, we are open to possibly to combining the resonating pieces of opinion with our own and creating a more harmonious way of thinking. Speak your peace, but speak in a way that brings discussion with an honoring of each other on a soul level.
