Volume 4 of "The Dialogues"
We are in a pivotal time in history. We are seeing the issue of prejudice and division making top headlines. Various hate groups are on display as we watched The White House under siege. My heart hurts for this country. You could say that I am a ‘highly sensitive person.’ I have high levels of empathy and compassion for others, and I feel things on a very deep level. It is one of the reasons I became a Clinical Social Worker.
As I wrestle with these recent events, I asked God to show me what messages from ‘The Dialogues,’ could give clarity on these issues. I was led to the following journal entry:
Prejudice is pride and injustice – channeled through self hate, and vile self arrogance. Break the chain.
Let’s address the issue of gossip. Do not speak of others in a harsh judgmental way. Only love, compassion, and self reflection. The origin of our thoughts is what disturbs the pattern of a loving space. Undo the self loathing, and all else will fall away.
People judge others as a reflection of their own inadequacies. Hate has to be personally experienced, for it to reflect and project onto others. Always start with self examination.
Cindy: So we have to examine this, if consciousness will elevate?
The Voice: People are all a universe within themselves. ‘This cosmos’ is the learning ground of the heart and soul. It is not “out there.” This is a common mistake - to see the world as separate from self. It is not. Cindy, tell people to look inward at their internal terrain – the landscape inside. What do they see? Have them do this exercise: Reflect… See… Draw it… Explain it. Eradicate the hate in your hearts. Siphon it up and release it. Release the hate of all the injustices you perceive to be true for you. This is useful information that needs to be excavated and examined.
Cindy: Why do some people need to experience violence and darkness? Or do they? Why is there so much violence and hate?
The Voice: Judgment is the root of all violence – all division – separation. This is why love is not more prevalent. Question yourself…Was this true? Is this right? Am I right? Is this the only way to see things? Place yourself in the other persons’ shoes.
Compassion is the key to combat the misunderstanding between the genders – the races – the young vs. the old. Seek understanding from others’ perspective. Empathy is a path to empowerment for all. Judging yourself as worthy, breaks down the walls of hatred.
Serve with an open heart – live humbly – speak softly – laugh loudly – think intuitively. Seek the expression that is in harmony with the Divine Sacred Spirit – unifying us all. Rise above the ordinary to embrace the extraordinary. Bring in love; push away hate. Love the beauty of your soul. Your internal state of affairs will reflect in the world beyond – spreading the same. Change the world in this way. Cindy ponder these things. It will magnify consciousness.
I have reflected on this teaching and I hope you will too. Change starts with each of us. Our thoughts, our beliefs, our actions have power far beyond what we can imagine. Raising our awareness of our hidden prejudices, self judgement, negative thinking is where we begin. Healing our hearts from emotional wounds, correcting our thinking, and loving ourselves, can raise us to a higher level of consciousness. From this place we will radiate love into the world.
