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. I love how you describe inspiration as a process of building, one person inspires another, and then that person inspires another and so on and so forth – like one block on top of another, so that in a way we are always helping each other individually build and evolve, but were also building something together. I’ve never looked at it that way before.

  2. Adele, what a stunning blog. The reflection of equality from another brings all that we allow to cover such truth to the surface to be felt and dealt with. Adele you said it beautifully when you said ‘when the resistance subsides’. For when the resistance to feel all these layers subsides we feel the exquisite truth that we are all equal and the reflection is us.

  3. ‘Truly feeling something is relationship, it goes both ways’. We don’t often stop to feel how we are in relationship all the time, regardless of wither we ‘think we are getting something in return, for we are forever exchanging energy.

  4. True reflections are deeply powerful and call us to a higher truth within ourselves, I love how there is a natural equality felt in every reflection, it is how we choose to respond or react to the reflection that allows us to accept we are the same in essence or to deny our true expression and live lesser than who we are.

  5. A beautiful reminder to continue to deepen our inner connection and express from our Livingness, knowing there is always more.
    “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”.

  6. ” True inspiration is simply to naturally bring back equality and harmony within humanity and within our relationships ”
    This is so true , doing this will stop the competition between people that makes people struggle with each other and therefore struggle with life.

  7. The power of movement is beyond what I have appreciated this far in my life. I can see very clearly how much weight I have placed on words and can now see and feel there is a vibration to those words that is different depending on if the person is living them in their bodies or not. If we live trying to influence then there is an imposition with that and a restriction of space to breath because the choices become limited by the restriction of the other person’s need to influence you. If we live without need to influence I can see that would be much more inspiring because it would leave space to breath our own breath and to make our own choice.

  8. Not resisting the true pull of inspiration that has been offered by another. As others have shared I feel the same in that inspiration for me is less about words and more with how the other is choosing to live their life.

  9. I agree, I am rarely inspired by words which are so often used to influence, manipulate or persuade. It is generally something less easy to define, a beingness that without words lets you feel everything that is there to be felt.

  10. ‘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’. Yep, words can be over-rated and often imposing. But reflections are silent, yet powerful, and have no investment in anyone getting it, and if we are open and not in resistance, we get to see and feel so much….

  11. I love the simplicity of this. There is no need to do anything special to be inspiring, just being ourselves is enough because we all have walked so far away from being ourselves that this is what we need to feel and see again.

  12. When we impart a truth from our lived experience the depth of truth is felt deeply within us all which our body recognises and responds to, as the energy of truth is already known and familiar. It is then our choice as to how we respond or react to what we have felt, depending on how open we are to connecting to the truth.

    1. So much of this is about the unseen and unheard and yet we have relied on our hearing and sight to determine what we feel to be true. We are ill-equipped to live in this way without conversations and blogs like this bringing a possibility to the table to be considered.

  13. To open ourselves up to be inspired by another is the most wonderful feeling. It feels as if we are being breathed into and as we are our whole being fills up and expands with a sense of joy and endless possibilities. It is a way that most of us don’t live as we tend to live in comparison to others and in doing so shut ourselves down from the opportunity to be truly inspired.

  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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. ” 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.

  18. 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.

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

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. “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.

  25. 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.

  26. 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.

  27. 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.
