True Inspiration

To ‘inspire’ comes from Latin inspirare – ‘breathe or blow into’ from in – ‘into’ + spirare ‘breathe’. The word was originally used of a divine or supernatural being, in the sense of “impart a truth or idea to someone”. (Oxford dictionary)

However, what matters in true inspiration is whether a person allows themselves to truly feel and open to what has been received, and then what they choose to make of it.

If what is shared by someone is lived, it requires very few words. There is no need to be understood, or to prove anything – there is no imposition at all. Without imposing, what is allowed in the relationship is a truth-full feeling of equality between people.

When we feel the connection with ourselves first, naturally we feel a connection and understanding with another and all others – truly feeling something is relationship, it goes both ways.

True inspiration is simply to naturally bring back equality and harmony within humanity and within our relationships — if the choice to be inspired is accepted by the receiver, there is a natural upward pull towards a shared equality in deepening awareness.

The greatest inspiration I have ever received was one of few words and the reflection, deeply felt when the resistance subsided, was that we are truly all equal. The deep love felt from this inspiration, and my choice to be inspired, is a commitment to also not live less than who I am. When I commit to living in this fullness, the reflection naturally becomes an inspiration when the receiver chooses to accept it, and so we evolve each other together, just by being who we are truly.

  1. Our abiltity to appreciate another’s reflection and be inspired by the values that they bring to be more loving and understanding is a great gift anyone can offer another, as it is through inspiration that we get to know ourselves as sons of God.

  2. It is beautiful to feel truly connected with ourselves, and from there to truly connect with another as there is an understanding that needs no explanation.

  3. Inspiration does come from the core of our being when we are presented with something that resonates with that potential we are not living in its fullness and is equally available in us all.

  4. “If what is shared by someone is lived, it requires very few words.” Something we absolutely know and live by when we are little. It is not the words as such that resonate with us but the living quality they bring.

    1. Yes, such a wake up call for those of us who are ‘talkers’! Perhaps I have not appreciated what I bring and have been justifying or trying to persuade all this time. It is worth considering because it would be very exhausting to go against our natural way.

  5. Well said Adele, it is how we allow ourselves to truly feel and be open to what has been received that determines the level at which we are able to embrace the offering that true inspiration brings.

  6. I am finally understanding what it feels like to be inspired and it comes from allowing myself the space to accept the reflection of inspiration that is offered by another, instead of descending into the ugly jealousy and comparison of the past. And I am learning that to allow myself to be inspired by another ‘is a natural upward pull towards a shared equality in deepening awareness.”. I am becoming more and more familiar with that gentle pull up from where I was to a place where we are both equal and where we both come to understand each other a little bit more.

  7. This to me is so clear, “However, what matters in true inspiration is whether a person allows themselves to truly feel and open to what has been received, and then what they choose to make of it.” This doesn’t fit with how we currently use inspiration in the world. We more make it about doing something better then we have seen someone else do and not actually truly feeling what we have seen or received. It changes the way I look at inspiration and that if in that moment I truly feel inspired then through the appreciation of that I am equal to what I have just witnessed and so no need to do or out do.

  8. I like the derivation of inspiration, the breathing aspect. For me there’s the sense that it is about breathing in the breath of God, literally ‘inspiring’ or taking in (as opposed to exhaling or expiring), and then feeling and being inspired to move accordingly.

  9. The tracing back to the origin of a word brings in a whole new meaning and opportunity to understand the world more.

  10. True inspiration comes from the reflection that is offered to another, for when it is lived in our bodies first requires no investment on our part for them to get it, just the appreciation of what has been offered as a gift from heaven.

  11. ” If what is shared by someone is lived, it requires very few words. There is no need to be understood, or to prove anything – there is no imposition at all. Without imposing, what is allowed in the relationship is a truth-full feeling of equality between people. ” This is so important for when one is living the true connection with theirselves , others feel this and see that they too have the possibility to re-connect with their true self and its a free will choice to do so.

  12. I am sitting with this connection between inspiration and breathing. It makes so much sense to me, it is almost as if I can feel that inspiration comes from sensing a pull. For me this is most likely to be a pull to love, to a feeling of ease and like I have come home. Seeing that in movement and lived regardless of circumstance is inspiration.

  13. Very true Adele – the most profound moments in my life where I have been inspired in such a way that changes my life, had very few words spoken. It was the feeling in my body inspired and activated by another who lives the truth I know and am seeking to return to — and this is not about the words but by what is embodied in another.

  14. ‘If what is shared by someone is lived, it requires very few words.’ So true Adele, our reflection speaks louder and is more powerful than any words we can say.
