“Listen to the inner light; it will guide you. Listen to inner peace; it will feed you. Listen to inner love; it will transform you, it will divinise you, it will immortalise you.”-Sri Chinmoy
Who are you being at the moment? Your words are a reflection of what is manifesting within you, it is a reflection of your thoughts, your heart-or lack of connection to your heart. Is your response calm and inviting? Or are you reacting out of hate and bitterness? One response comes from within your heart, a centered state of being; the other comes from your ego, a disempowered state of being.
I can stop and listen to another person’s words and see what their point of view on life is, but most importantly, about themselves. It amazes me at how much life is a reflection of what is happening inside. There are words which will harm some, and others who are immune to them, same words, different realities.
A person can be yelling all sorts of profanities and insults at another, but if the other person is at peace with themselves and the world, none of those words will harm them, yet the person doing the yelling will feel the effects of those words which they attempted to harm another with-in essence it’s like a bullet ricocheting off a wall and hitting the shooter.
I am you, you are me.
