Strive to be an angel in life
BEING an angel means to think, feel and act like one. Such a person, while interacting with others, will see the uniqueness of each soul, accepting them as they are and, at the same time, appreciating their virtues.
Humans, on the other hand, tend to have a critical vision that seeks faults in others. When we focus on what we think is wrong in others, our feelings quickly turn negative and there is no space for compassion or understanding.
Angels don’t do this. Even when they see a defect in someone, they understand that every soul has its own story and is suffering because of its weaknesses.
With empathy, they give that person love and support and inspire the person to change.
When angels see someone suffer, they don’t quote the law of karma or announce that the person is getting his just deserts. Instead, they provide succour and heal the pain of the sufferer.
Angels don’t dwell on anyone’s past, and knowing that everyone has the potential to improve, they assist them regardless of who they are and what they have done.
While doing all this, angels do not expect acknowledgement or applause. They do what is needed and move on, happy that they were able to serve.
They also don’t let others become attached or dependent on them, for they are aware that they are instruments of God, doing His work in this world.
