Marie T. Russell's Daily Inspiration

The focus for today is:  I develop my sense ability

In a book entitled "Sense Ability", Doris Wild Helmering  tells the story of a man who enters a coffee shop, and who, ignoring the people in line for coffee, cuts to the front of the line demanding a coffee. The server gently tells him that she will be with him shortly. He waits a very short time before exclaiming loudly that he has better things to do than stand around waiting for coffee, and ignoring his wife, who is trying to calm him down, he storms out of the coffee shop.

He had no awareness of anyone else's needs but his own... not his wife who was embarrassed by his rudeness, not the server who he treated rudely, and certainly not the other customers who were waiting in line patiently for their turn for coffee.  He was completely tuned out of any awareness of sensing the other people around him. He was only focused on his own needs and desires.

Now, we may all have had situations in our life where we experienced anger or impatience with others and neglected their feelings at all. Opening up our sense ability allows us to tune in to the needs of others, and to empathize and work with them rather than against them. This is our goal... to become in harmony with those around us by being open to, and being considerate of, not just our feelings, but theirs as well.
