Always Seek Harmony and Enlightenment.
A Thought Adjuster Speaks - # 310
30th May, 2004
Dear one, your supplications to the All that Is are always heard, but do you really take the time to listen for an answer? In doing so, you sharpen your own listening skills, and these can always stand improvement, not just towards Me, but also towards all others you are engaged in conversation with.
True listening skills are extremely rare. Humans usually already formulate an answer in their mind while listening to the other speak, so that they loose more than half of what is really being said, which is the intent expressed between the words, for therein lies the true conversational meaning.
Think about the soul, which desires to express itself, and gets drowned out by the clamor of the world; the thoughts of the other, and the mundane and often profane conversations.
If you can master this part of conversation and communication, and really be present for the other participant, you will have been of loving service to that person, as she or he will sense your total acceptance and dedication as a true listener.
Mind you, most conversations are just surface babble, but with true listening skills - an art that is only to be learned through practice - the conversation can be guided to a higher level, which usually takes only a few words.
The best conversations to be had are those in which you allow Me to participate; meaning that you silently invite Me to be part of this. And, of course, you need to remember, that I am only a thought away. In remembering My Presence within you, and within the other person, the conversation can truly go to a much higher level, and to the greater satisfaction of both your souls.
Of course, you would always seek harmony and enlightenment, and not to lord it over the other with your supposed superior knowledge. The secret lies in the discovery of hidden needs, and where you can best be of service. In doing so, you yourself are also served, and both souls will resonate towards the Creator God in splendid harmony, which ripples out into the environment.
