GOSSIP LOVINGLY

“What you see reflects your thinking. And your thinking but reflects your choice of what you want to see.” A Course In Miracles

 “I will only see my and everyone’s best self today.”

Gossip does more harm than we can realize.
It hurts the victim but it also hurts the gossiper 
because it diminishes our power and makes us small.
And when we attack another, we attack ourselves.
It’s cause and effect.
If we want a loving effect, we must be a loving cause.

If we are addicted to gossip and simply cannot stop,
We can still change our minds about how we gossip.
We can gossip about our sister’s lovely spirit.
We can gossip about our brother’s holiness.
We can gossip about our willingness to be happy.

We can gossip about everything everyone does right
While we kindly overlook what we see as their mistakes.
In this way, we have turned gossip from something harmful
Into something that will make us instruments of peace.

And just as we attack ourselves by attacking others,
So do we Bless ourselves when we bless another.
So let’s smile and gossip only in kindness today.

When we become part of the solution, the problem disappears.
