Conversations with God (via Christine)

I was tidying up after my youngest, who had just completed a huge project on the Egyptian Gods, (who, she tells me, are all inbred), and I stopped to have a look at the other side of the scrap paper she had written on. This is the poem I found:

Speak only in truthfulness. Act only in love
Live the law of love now and forevermore.
Give everything, require nothing.
Avoid the mundane.
Do not accept the unacceptable.
Speak softly, lest someone think you are merely calling for attention.
Speak gently, that all might know of love.
Speak openly, lest anyone think you have something to hide.
Speak candidly, so you cannot be mistaken.
Speak often, so that your word may truly go forth.
Speak respectfully, that no one be dishonoured.
Speak lovingly, that every syllable may heal.
Make of your life a gift. Remember always, you are the gift!
Be a gift to everyone who enters your life, and to everyone whose life you enter.
Be careful not to enter another’s life if you cannot be a gift.
When someone enters your life unexpectedly, look for the gift that person has come to receive from you.
Every person who has ever come to you has come to receive a gift from you. In so doing, he gives a gift to you – the gift of your experiencing and fulfilling who you are.

(Taken from: Conversations with God, an uncommon dialogue)
