Gossip Trap

Gossip is like a whirlpool in the ocean of consciousness, or it is like quicksand in the jungle of life. Whichever way of looking at it strikes a nerve, beware this most common enemy on the path to Joy.

Forgiveness is your protection from gossip, which basically means when someone starts to gossip you go into non-judgment mode.  You’re not agreeing with them or disagreeing; you don’t correct them, or disapprove.  You do your best to politely change the subject or walk away.  Sending them love is also appropriate, since what they really want is to feel better or to say that differently, it’s a cry for love.

Is there such a thing as positive gossip or inspirational gossip?  I believe there is.  Negativity comes wrapped in cute sheep skin, carrying pretty flowers, and covered in perfume.  Only later do you notice that you feel bad and in fact they have taken your energy.  Most of the purveyors of positive, inspirational gossip are well intentioned and do not even realize what they are doing.  Once again this is a cry for love, they are saying aren’t I cute, pretty, loveable?  And BAM, you come away feeling drained… because you were.

The bottom line here is how you are approaching life.  Are you looking for ways to give or ways to receive?  Do you look at life as “what’s in it for me?” or “what do I have to offer?”.  If it is the former you’ll be running into energy vampires all the time, because You are one!!  If instead you approach life saying “what do I have to offer?” or I have this to offer, how best can I do this, then you’ll attract positive and productive ways to contribute to the world.  Most importantly you’ll feel better.  The more you give the better you’ll feel too.  The only real way to know how you’re doing on the path is to notice how you feel.  Awareness is key on the Journey of Love (Joy, Peace, Love = God, Prime Creator, Great Spirit).

The High Road or The Low Road

There is a high road and a low road.  The high road leads straight to God and the low road takes the scenic route but eventually gets there.  It is important to understand which road you are on and to know you have a choice at any time to move to one or the other.  In fact many people jump back and forth between the two and get know where at all!  Jumping back and forth is like standing still because no momentum is built up on either path.  Choose a path and stick to it!

Now let us look at the paths so we know where we are.  The low road consists of actions of low energy such as gossip.  Just so you know: “Gos·sip [gos-uhp]  noun 1. idle talk or rumor, especially about the personal or private affairs of others: the endless gossip about Hollywood stars [or Political Candidates].” (Dictionary.com) (i.e. Political candidate tripped on the stairs today or He said so and so, how dumb is that?)  The low road has many characteristics of which most are the easy way out, serve only yourself or immediate family, and often feels really good, but only for a short while.

The High road by contrast is often riddled with pitfalls and risks.  It is all about serving others and can feel good or really bad.  In the end the feeling is wonderful, but this only comes after much effort and practice, often for years.  For example, instead of using gossip news is shared.  “News [nooz, nyooz]  noun  1. a report of a recent event; intelligence; information:” (Dictionary.com)  (i.e. Barack Obama was in Denver today for the Democratic National Convention.)

Other examples of the High road are caring for others, thoughtful actions, treating yourself well, and staying true to your principles.  Doing right despite what others are doing.  The high road is taken by yourself, but this does not mean you are alone.  It is a solitary path with great rewards.

Please be mindful of the path you are upon!  Stay aware of your actions and consciously choose the path which best serves you.  There is nothing wrong with taking the low road by the way, many do.  To learn more about this I suggest reading The Law of One Study Guide V.2 which is available free on the internet, just search the title.  I leave you with a prayer version of Psalm 1.

“Blessed are they

who walk not in the counsel of the wicked,

nor stands in the way of sinners,

nor sits in the seat of scoffers;

but delights in the law of the Land,

and on this law meditates day and night.

Like a tree

planted by streams of water,

that yields its fruit in its season,

and its leaf does not wither.

In all they do, they prosper.”
