Listen to me !

i am older, i am wiser, i know - so just listen to me...

sound familiar ?  we were annoyed when spoken to thus and i am sure we annoy others when we say it..

let's look at what we are intimating with these words :

first and foremost, we are taking the "god" principal out of the equation and supplanting it with "me, me and only me "... what we know changes daily, so really, we don't know!  if we did, we would be happy ourselves, but obviously aside from the infinitesimal fleeting moments of non-misery that we assume is happiness, most of our lives are, well, not so happy .. we lack peace, contentment nor have we experienced silence - we are, instead, filled with fear, anger and doubt - so how much could we possibly  really "know" !

if anyone needs to be heard, it's that Universal Consciousness ( call it whatever you want as per your religion or lack thereof ) - herein lies the rub : do you know how to listen; can you yourself hear it ?  if not, don't preach what you don't know and if you do, what need is there to speak - for you know, all is the way it should be for it can be no other way.... have faith in your faith !

of course, it's easy to give advice ( no one ever asks " is that how you live ?" or " do your really follow what you are suggesting?" )   don't speak as words inevitably fall on deaf ears; Be the advice - live it, radiate it and let all those around soak it up and be drenched ...

if you are the one they need to hear it from, they will be directed to you and they will ask....

He alone knows.  He alone speaks ... be available to Him and He shall flow through you... if you are too full of yourself, you leave no room for Him.

so shut up and live well ...

  1. PSLAM 128
    Blessed are all who fear the LORD,
    who walk in obedience to him.
    2 You will eat the fruit of your labor;
    blessings and prosperity will be yours.
    3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
    within your house;
    your children will be like olive shoots
    around your table.
    4 Yes, this will be the blessing
    for the man who fears the LORD.

    5 May the LORD bless you from Zion;
    may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
    all the days of your life.
    6 May you live to see your children’s children—
    peace be on Israel.
