Gossip is a mass practice in our society today, however, contrary to popular opinion it is not a harmless practice.
Words have great power. Gossip is a misuse of that power. And at the end of the day, the power of misuse hits but ourselves. Whatever we put out in our lives comes back to us. Gossip comes back to us like a boomerang.
Only people who don’t know what to do with their lives waste it in idle gossip. Someone who is sincerely on their Spiritual path is so busy serving others and developing his consciousness that he does not even have the time to think of others, let alone judge and criticize them.
People who gossip are afraid to look at their own stuff. They can’t be by themselves because they are afraid about what they could find if they indeed turned within. This is why they have to judge and criticize others in gossip in order to distract themselves from their own inner needs and reality. So disengage in gossip and be more conscious of the words you use.
The Integrated Ascended Master never ever engages in gossip! Gossip is only for victims and people with no self-worth who need to judge others to feel better about themselves.
