For your consideration…….

Today’s message came in via a scenario that I have happen all of the time when I teach. especially small children. Invariably I will have a child come up to me and tell me that someone has said “mean” or “not nice” things to them. I was reminded of my response. I always draw their attention to their little ear lobes and have this conversation……

I ask them, “What is this?” They say,

“My ear.”

“Whose head is it attached too?”


“That means YOU get to decide and choose what to listen to. Choose to ignore those nasty comments. They are not worthy of you”

invariably, they pause for a second in thought and then run off content.

And so it is with adults. People say and do things to us that is “not nice or mean”. Perhaps it is blatant or maybe innuendos. We recognize them because our spirit feels the assault.

We are reminded today that we have control on what we “let in”. If it is not really us, if our authentic self does not recognize the words and/or action as truth, then we simply do not have to let it in.  Do not let what is not true in to poison our authentic self. We are reminded to choose to let only TRUTH into our soul.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.
