Inspiration Is Not Insistent

Inspiration is something that is gentle and not demanding. It comes quietly, often suddenly, unexpectedly. It lingers for just a second, maybe less, and then it’s gone. It is for you to decide whether or not to act on it. 

You will always know that this is inspiration from divine sources, including the spark of divinity within you, because it will be an inspiration to do something that is good and kind*. Always and only that. 

So know this, inspiration is something you all have on a daily basis no matter what your circumstances in life but the reason I say it’s not insistent, it’s not demanding, is because it’s not part of the mind. 

The mind can be willful and demanding and urge you to do things that may not be benevolent or may lead to something that isn’t benevolent. So, it isn’t always that way but it can be. 

The will is demanding but inspiration is soft, it is gentle. It is a direct line from Creator and we are all a portion of that. I just wanted to remind you of this today because when inspiration is present it is an opportunity. 

If you can, write some notes. Say even some words out loud to yourself quietly so that you have repeated the inspiration. It may not be in the form of a thought, it might be a picture or something like that. Say a couple of words to yourself. 

If you woke up with the inspiration then have something by which you can say a couple of words or write a couple of words and then go back to sleep if you need to. 

Alright, just wanted to say that for today about inspiration. Goodlife


*Also known as benevolent.
