Sensitive Talk – Insensitive Action
December 5, 2018
Talk can be cheap! Many people in all walks of life ‘sell’ what they are going to do or even have done, leaving behind smoldering, unintended, smoke and mirrors without their ‘follow through’. Broken promises made to allow the ‘promisor’ to feel good about their intentions are the ‘modus operandi’ of many. Don’t let broken promises become a habit. False prophets or snake oil babblers?
In basketball, when you take a shot at the basket hoop, you and teammates immediately go into action to follow up and determine that the ‘gesture (shot)’ is followed through. Same is necessary for integrity of positive words especially in regard to promises of action. There is a German word that is fitting for those that make empty promises. That word is ‘dumkopf’ meaning stupid, a dumbhead, or just plain disingenuous. However, as much as ‘trust’ is not something you can apply to the ‘insensitive action’ person to follow through, you can take a positive view, and at least trust them to not follow through on their words . . . at least with any consistency.
An important part of the spiritual path is to be aware or mindful of all, and with empathy and compassion for others. Always take the positive approach even with those who are unreliable, and don’t be attached to a preconceived outcome that they indicate. The true person of the heart is reliable to meet their agreements, and will do the best to correct them if falling short. The path of consciousness meets challenges to provide an opportunity to sharpen positive qualities within such as forgiveness, empathy and compassion.
Always may the winds of time, blow hope and positivity with peace and kindness your way. To really love anyone and those in general, particularly those invisible and far away as God or Jesus, needs each to have deep, calm ‘self love’ first. Millions of years have passed with humans in some form. Now is the time to pay back for the time it took for each of us to be here. Toss the curtains of peril aside and use any prior damages to catapult to higher realms. All obstacles must be removed and let go of, including negative perceptions that are limiting inner growth and realization.
Un-trap yourself! Life need not be a trap from truth, love, and freedom! There is no end… and the beginning hasn’t really started yet. Always be ready … set … and GO! The moment is now!
