Have your expressions of Divine love fallen on deaf ears? Have you been criticized by some for the joy you are experiencing within? Do you feel guilty for having these wonderful feelings amid the dissension and strife that some others are experiencing? If you feel remorseful in any way then you are overextending yourself into what someone else is feeling.
Compassion is a good feeling but you must draw the line with where your empathy takes you. You have not been going through and experiencing what they have been through. As a matter of fact, your reactions to such experiences couldbe completely different than theirs. When you judge others for their reactions you too will be judged for yours. What is truly important is that you accept their reactions without allowing them to influence the way you react to your own set of circumstances.
Be who and what you were created to be by allowing the flow of God’s grace to create joy, peace and understanding in your entire being. Operate from that center of peace and bring that feeling of joy with you into each and every thought, word, action and deed. This is truly living in the Kingdom of God every day. No matter what anyone else experiences maintain your center of peace.
Most people cannot or will not see beyond what is readily apparent. They either ignore what is underlying or dismiss it as too much work. They would rather take someone else’s word for it than spend their precious time in ferreting out the truth. Their priorities are how they can satisfy their next selfish yearning or whim without regard to manifesting anyone’s Divine desires; even their own. When you pay too much attention to what your ego convinces you is important, you miss out on what you need to do to live a fulfilled life replete with success.
May you experience joy, peace and understanding by living in the love of the Spirit of God each and every day of your life! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
