A few weeks ago I picked up one of Walsch’s books and began to read the first pages. After I read the short list of the 25 core messages to explain the main message (in the title) I stopped reading. It was so inspiring and I my mind started spinning. Before I am reading on I want to share the flow of pictures and thoughts of some of those core messages which immediately filled me. Most of those core messages won’t appear new since we are talking about them over and over again. We all share them with our own words. Isn’t that an amazing proof that we are fully aware of God’s message? If you would like to read the previous parts, you can check out here part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5 and part 6.
“Your life has nothing to do with you.
It is about everyone whose life you touch and how you touch it.”
This one made me ponder a lot. We all know that we are not our lives. We only live a physical life which we create by the way we think, speak, and act (I wrote about this in part 6). But I actually thought that what we create is meant for us in the first place in order to learn from the consequences and experiences we make in the process. Now reading that my life has NOTHING to do with me but much more with those I encounter, made me think. I stepped back and looked at this statement from a distance for a while and all of a sudden I began to understand. The quote above felt like such a truth and still is but now I read it differently.
If I was the only person on this planet, if no other being was here with me – no people or animals, not even insects – the only interaction I had was the one with me. I would never be thrown off track or confronted with my own personality. I would not be pushed to improve or at least look at my behavior or question my opinions. Yes, I might be centered and never lose contact with my inner world BUT would that teach me anything? What would trigger my development? Would that be what I wanted to come here for?
I realized that only because of what others do to me, I am in motion (in- and outside). Only the way others touch my life makes me look at things differently and makes me discover more about myself because of the feelings I experience and the thoughts I think. Only the interaction with others helps me to develop. How I encounter life and watching how others encounter life inspires each other. So, in the first place, we come here to affect the lives of others in order that they discover themselves and make the experiences they planned to make. We truly come here to support each other with our presence, no matter what we do to each other.
“Your life has nothing to do with you. It is about everyone whose life you touch and how you touch it.” Isn’t that simply amazing? If we are aware of what this means we won’t take ourselves so damn serious. We are all here to love and be loved. What we do to others we do to ourselves. Even what we do to ourselves is an influence on others. Whatever I do sends out waves. Be the best for yourself, be the best for others. Sometimes we cannot avoid decisions to make which may hurt others but still do it with love in your heart and not with thoughts of revenge or resentments. As this core message wants to teach us, it is not what we are doing but how we do it.
You, who reads this, have come here to help me and all our brothers and sisters
and I thank you with all my heart.
In Love and Light
