Different Points of View
“Bringing a different point of view to any discussion will create waves, and may not make you the most popular person in the room. Everyone feels a certain amount of attachment to their point of view, to their perspective. They have arrived at it after having lived for so many years on your world and having made their observations of what is right and what is true. And so your point of view may ruffle some feathers. And that is all right, because everyone who has feathers that need to be ruffled must have their feathers ruffled, one way or the other.
It is not up to you to protect anyone from hearing something that might be upsetting to them. But it is up to you to speak your truth and to own it as yours. It is your perspective and that is worthy of being heard and expressed. You are not here to make everyone else comfortable by only expressing what you feel would be acceptable to others. You must be willing to take ownership of the point of view that you hold and to allow everyone else to hold theirs.
You are not going to be dissecting their point of view or telling them that they only think the way they think because that is what they have been taught or because they have been close-minded. That is not what we are advocating. We are not advocating being combative with others who hold different points of view.
We are simply asking your to state your point of view because we want you to give yourselves the acknowledgement and the credit and to consider yourselves as worthy of having a different point of view. And by expressing what it is that you believe, you have an impact on the world, even if you get only resistance from those who believe otherwise. You are still making an impact.
So if you feel something as a result of the backlash, as a result of their attacks, then by all means feel what it is that you are feeling and process those emotions on your own. Those emotions are your own, and if they are there as a result of something that someone else is saying, then know that they were always there and that you are simply allowing yourselves to access them in that moment. In some ways not speaking your truth is a way of protecting yourself as well.
And we want all of you to understand that living with others on your world means that there must be different perspectives and different points of view, and different opinions. And they must all be allowed to be. If you respect others for having their point of view and for being willing to express theirs, then they may decide to give you the same type of consideration. Of course, if you have feathers of your own to be ruffled, then they will get ruffled.
And it is so much more important for you to express and allow then it is to cover up and make sure everyone else in the room is comfortable, even if you are not. Be bold. Be the powerful beings that you are, and be willing to make the impact that you desired to make on your world before you incarnated. This will give you the sense of self that you have always sought after, and it will allow you to move into the role of teacher that you all inherently are.
Be aware of your opinions and your perspectives, and notice that they are there to give you a bit of insight to yourself as well. So when you express your opinions and your perspectives, pay attention to what it is that you are feeling about them. Allow everyone else in the room to do the same, and you can live harmoniously even though you all have very different points of view.”
