“If anyone tells you that a certain person speaks ill of you, do not make excuses about what is said of you but answer, "He was ignorant of my other faults, else he would not have mentioned these alone.”
Oh my, I do love this quote! Anytime we can laugh at situations where we would have cried or gotten angry in the past is a good moment. I try to forget about those people who throw daggers my way until it comes up in conversation at which time I have choices in how to respond. I choose to follow Epictetus and his thinking because the finger-pointing is so insignificant in the grand scheme of things. The saying “haters gonna hate” is what comes to mind and I give it no more thought. Anything other than this attitude can create an arena for disaster.
Dear Angels, I do not understand a lot of things people do in life nor do I need to in order to stay in my own lane. I have no desire to micromanage others in their life path. I just want to live in a world where we all get along. I pray for this every day.
Dear Ones, love has no time for anything than love. This is why you get sad or upset when anything other than love tries to invade your peace. Anything that is discord and judgment will not survive in your world as long as you focus only on love. If something does try to emerge, simply pause and ask yourself “how can I focus more on loving what is showing up for me?” The gossiper, the naysayer, the critic are all roles people are playing to show you a part of yourself that needs healing. This is not to say that you are any of that, but the characteristics are coming up for you to acknowledge and heal. Every human has the ability to show their shadow side at any given moment. Embrace it with love and accept your healing with ease and grace. Do not focus on the person holding the mirror – focus only on the reflection in the mirror.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to concern myself with only my own thoughts, words and actions and look deeply in the mirror.
