Trish Eadaoin Echluath: Val, to ignore someone spreading negativity is like ignoring someone starting a forest fire. If we stop them from lighting the fire, the forest can be saved. If you hear negativity you should gently remind people that it will bring them no good or satisfaction to spread it
Cat Bruce My Dear Friend.....I am reading and working on my spiritual path of healing and understanding. I am sharing my what I am observing in the human behaves as I am learning myself. No one can harm me with words of untruth if I do not gave them the power to
Cat Bruce Trish.....Take another step back. No need to speak at all. "Silents" is your power. Do not add into the negative but set back and watch whom shares the "Fire". They are the ones that really need help. They are the ones that need blessings to heal their pain. They are the ones that need to be heard for something to feel like they fit into something because they have nothing to be happy about themselves to share with the group. I feel sad for them and just watch what "Level" they are thought there words.
Madeline New: Indeed! Women are the worst about this, but I have met some real doosies that are male too! Even with my family members, I try not to entertain their games...
Trish Eadaoin Echluath:
There is great truth in what you say. But Silence is the double edge sword also has the power to hurt. To remain silent and allow the fire to burn will not bring blessings or healing to those who share the fire. It may only make the wound sting that much more or isolate the one in the middle of the fire. Offering to listen and giving understanding can heal. Sometimes asking why, will bring enlightenment not only to you, but to the person who needs healing. Perhaps through their pain they never thought to ask why. This is where Silence has great power, when you listen and let those who need healing enlighten themselves through their own words. Thank you for sharing your journey. I enjoy what you share and have found a lot of wisdom within it.
Trish: If someone calls you Bob and your name is not Bob then there is no truth in the word. But what you speak of in the emotion behind the words. If you take any words and take out the emotion due to they are untrue, then no need to correct the untruth. The pain is the power/emotion you gave to the words. When someone is in the "fire" they are not ready nor will they understand the root meaning of your questions to them. They will ask for help and understanding if they are done with being unhappy with themselves....they may never ask for help due to this lifetime they will never learn and will return again and again.......I am just an observer of the spiritual evolution.
Nathan Rethemeyer: The fire of gossip is a quick spreading blaze. It burns hot and fast. The fuel is often expended quickly. Any actions, whether joining into the fray or attempting to extinguish the flames is adding fuel. Those that join add wind to the sails of those who began the fray to begin with. Those who raise their voices in opposition merely make the original parties feel validated in that they were able to affect someone else, as well as get louder in defense of their original statements.
