We can go through life ignorantly and act like we know it all, refuse to acknowledge the opinions of others.. but then again where does that get us? 😧 More than half of us claim to be spiritual/religious yet we're going about it all wrong. We swear allegiance to all the morals and values that have been drilled into our heads, and as a result we fail to recognize the one thing that truly matters, the importance of having an OPEN mind.. It's about being "teachable" and all you Bible /torah /Qur'an bearers should be knowledgeable of this..
Teachable people approach life with an understanding that they can learn from anybody regardless of that person’s state, status, or situation in life. To have such a spirit involves humility, and humility keeps the door open for knowledge and truth to find a true place in our hearts. You must transcend your #EGO !
People who are teachable have a great desire to learn on a daily basis.
I try to learn something new every day that can help me become a better person. Not only do I read and watch videos constantly, but I try to find the truth in common, and ordinary situations.
If you intentionally look for ways to grow in your faith, the universe will supply the venues for you to find truth.
Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of #listening when you would have preferred to talk "If you can’t be silent, you will have nothing to say.”
These type of people are able to find opportunities in every situation; even, and/or, especially, in adverse ones. Those with a teachable spirit see adversity as an opportunity to do something better. I certainly do not want hardships and trials in my life; but I have come to realize something about adversity: when it shows up, I welcome it with open arms because I know I have much to gain!
Some of the greatest and insightful moments in my life have come from random people who's unbiased opinions all invested into my spiritual growth. Surround yourself with people of wisdom, EXPERIENCE , and spiritual insight.
You don't know it all, its okay neither do I.. 😉
She told me that she was afraid of the darkness. That her mind was playing tricks on her and she was scared what her mind would say next. She didn't believe me when I told her she was strong, instead she looked down and a tear made its way down her cheek. She didn't come here for advise, she wasn't looking for a hand out, she was looking for someone to listen to her pain, to feel how much her heart was hurting. She explained the battle between herself and this darkness. She knew that feeling sad wasent her norm, that bed time lullabies shouldn't consist of tissue, red eyes, and many nights creating rivers of tears. But she simply didn't know why. She has been lost, and looking for a way to shine light in places she fears. She lets you know that it's not so dark and scary when others are around, because she just wants to hear the heart beat of someone else instead of her own #mentalhealth#darkness#listening#feeling#thoughts#searchingforsupport#itsokaytoaskforhelp#blackandwhite#mindgames
I got a couple of Gil Scott-Heron CD's, and today I drove to work listening to Winter In America. On the way back the song H2Ogate was playing, and lyrically it's quite astounding (or alarming, prescient, worrying, or whatever) how a song/spoken word piece can be seemingly as relevant today as it was back in 1973. Change a few names and this could've been released yesterday.
All these pieces, broken and scattered
In mercy gathered, mended and whole
Empty handed but not forsaken
I've been set free.
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I am found
Was blind but now I see
I can see You now
I can see the love in Your eyes
Laying Yourself down
Raising up the broken to life...... #revival#listening#amazinggrace
I know you love me
More than you want to
Your heart is holding
But desire burns all the way through
Ask me to leave politely
But you really don't want me to
My heart is holding
But desire burns all the way through
Its kind of fucked up that we both lie about the same thing
I know somewhere you're really listening.... x @clintsoman & @rameshdembla --- miss Karo 🦋 #listening#love#freedom
This is a time for expansion, incredible growth and healing for so many people. It seems so many people are shedding what no longer fits for them, healing deep wounds and looking directly at their shadow work.
I'm also seeing so many people stepping out and allowing themselves to be seen and having their voices heard.
It's all extremely exciting!
However, I also know the first step before any of that happens is to love ourselves as we are before we will be able to transition into what our higher vision is.
If we don't love who we are, we will never be able to step into a higher vision of ourselves.
You came into the world 🌎 as the perfect You. You are exactly as you are meant to be and a necessary part of the whole.
When we remember that, we can then step in to whatever larger vision we hold for ourselves!
