The Hardest Conversation To Have . . . !

The hardest conversation to have is with yourself! WHY? Because it is easier to talk yourself into something . . . that is not good for you. AND just as easy to talk yourself out of something . . . that is good! 

What do I mean by that? Well, look at self in the two senses or meanings. One is self . . . in the flesh, the identity of the individual created by God. The other self is the ego, the animalistic heritage each one of us has, the nature that can develop into a monster of selfishness, brutality, lust and so on. It is this self we struggle against everyday, in order to strengthen and free the spirit within us and help it to attain peace.

In one of the writings of  Abdu’l-Bahá it states, the wrong in the world continues to exist because people talk only of their ideals, and do not strive to put them into practice. If actions took the place of words, the world’s misery would very soon be changed into comfort. A man who does great good, and talks not of it . . .  is on the right path. The man who has accomplished a small good and magnifies it in his speech . . .  is not. 

Some people make announcements about the good they do, multiplying fine words together because they wish to be thought greater and better than others. Just to seek acceptance in the eyes of this world. Those who do the most good use the fewest words concerning their actions. These are the ones who do God’s works and obey God’s laws.
