Inspiration for the Week - Loving Others in their own Chosen Path

The Gabriel Message card for this week: 

Loving others in their own chosen path is setting the energy you want in your world.

This is the only Gabriel Message that is relating to other people. In essence however, it is a Golden Rule teaching. We know that it is important that we treat others as we would like to be treated. Archangel Gabriel is saying that when we do this it sets energy into motion that circulates through our lives so we receive what we give.

When I think of how I want to be treated and how I would truly love to treat others, I am attracted to the Buddhist concept of Loving-Kindness. When I imagine giving love, it is loving-kindness that is really underlying that desire. In many ways it simplifies everything when I use the attribute of loving-kindness as my focal point and basis for all relationships.

One of my heroes is H.H. The Dalai Lama. Being born on his 10th birthday is one of my only claims to fame. I love his humility, his humor and especially his wisdom. In A Policy of Kindness, he says:

An affectionate disposition not only makes the mind more peaceful and calm, but it affects our body in a positive way too. On the other hand, hatred, jealousy and fear upset our peace of mind, make us agitated and affect our body adversely. Even our body needs peace of mind and is not suited to agitation. This shows that an appreciation for peace of mind is in our blood.

Another relevant quote from this amazing man is on my refrigerator:

If you see yourself in others, who can you harm?

These are powerful motives to love others as they are and allow them to choose their own path in life. Most of us have a number of stories about those we have tried to change to our way of thinking. Even though it rarely works, it has not stopped us from giving it our best shot.

I want to remember that the most kind and loving way I can relate to others is by allowing them to be who they are while respecting their choices in life. This may mean that we cannot stay together, but for our soul's evolution that is the most perfect thing that can happen for the highest good of all concerned.

We are also being reminded that what we do for ourselves and for others affects the world. So for the sake of the planet and for our own happiness, may we remember that Loving-Kindness is the power that improves our Health and Well-being and sends the presence of the exalted states of Respect, Compassion and Peace into the world.

Divine Presence:

May the Light of your Love shine through me into the world and into all my relationships with others. May I give others the respect and the kindness they deserve for all their choices in life. May I allow others to live as they choose and may I have the courage to do the same.

And may I remember how important it is to give myself the same loving-kindness that I offer to others so that Peace can prevail on Earth. Thank you God and so it is.

The Gabriel Messages #10

Loving others in their own chosen path is setting the energy you want in your world.

Dear One,

When you love others and allow them to follow their own chosen path, it awakens the energy of compassion and acceptance within you. This energy fills your heart and permeates your world. It allows you to receive this same energy from others, which can give you a sense of freedom to be all you can be.

At times the chosen path of others may seem destructive to you, and it is not the energy that you would choose to be around. In these situations, often the most loving thing you can do is allow them to follow their chosen path, and you must give yourself permission to follow the path which is in your highest good. This may even mean never seeing them again.

Set the energy you want in your world by awakening your consciousness to all the good available to you. It's a matter of choice. Attune yourself to only that which you would have in your life. Release the need to be right. Close your mind to the negative thoughts that threaten your happiness. Moment to moment, make the choice to live in the Light of True Love. This is being a true bridge from Heaven to Earth. Making the choice for love allows you to be in the world but not of the world. When you make the choice to love others as they are, you pave the way for a mass awakening of Love on the planet so all may be free.

Receive Love, give Love and be Love. With this loving energy as your intention, remember your Message from Archangel Gabriel for today:

Loving others in their own chosen path is setting the energy you want in your world.
