Higher Ground … by Rev. Prentiss Davis
Have you ever been asked to take the “higher ground” when it comes to how you deal with the actions of others towards yourself? Well I have. It’s always been suggested by someone who hasn’t been affected by the perceived inappropriate behavior from others. How can they know how you feel? They can’t know your pain or the disrespect you’re feeling. Now you have one more thing to address, their suggestion in addition to the original problem.
Is it possible that the person making the “higher ground” suggestion sees your ability to rise above personality? Do they know that you are not ego driven, that you recognize that you are not an “I’m always right” person?
We all have within us all the Power, Love, and Peace in the universe. We must acknowledge that the “Allness” of GOD dwells within our “Wholeness” and it is just a mental command away.
The “higher ground” is and should be our normal ground, the ground where we walk and talk the truth of our being. The next time someone or some urge suggests that we take the “higher ground” directing us to demonstrate our Divine self don’t fight it. Just say Thank you, GOD. Peace
