Surely you’ve heard the saying “grace under pressure”? One of my favorite quotes is by William Hazlitt: “Grace has been defined to be the outward expression of the inward harmony of the soul.”
When we are angry or in conflict often we are heavily invested in being right, and the more the argument evolves… the more virulent the energy becomes.
When I read energy, it is shown to me in terms of the strength of that energy. In other words, the strength of the energy is directly tied to its manifestation here in the physical realm. As above, so below.
What is grace? Webster’s Dictionary defines grace as both a noun and a verb.
Noun: unmerited favor, kindness undeserved.
Verb: to confer dignity or honor on or to add beauty to.
Grace is the very nature of existence. And ego is the shelter. You protect yourself, even against grace. Unknowingly, you create defense measures around you, you create an armor. The grace is available but you become unavailable – that’s why rarely it seems to happen ~ Osho
Grace is the ‘breath’ we take between anger and forgiveness. It is a choice to be silent, hold our tongue and open the door for peace to enter into a situation.
Angels naturally possess infinite grace, and many times the angels I work with will have to remind me to hold my tongue, think before I speak and simply be silent and listen to the person I am angry with.
Being heard even if we are not understood is very validating. It says to the other person, “you are important to me, what you are feeling and thinking matters to me”.
What you give you will receive.
Grace is also about dignity; it is about coming to the table to listen and learn. Where anger raises it voice and screaming is to be heard, grace speaks softly, and listens with compassion.
It takes two to argue. One person can open that space and allow grace to enter. Once the energy of grace is present, peace and forgiveness can flow into the space where anger was once dominant.
Often the most intense arguments are with the ones closest to us, the ones that matter the most. Is that person not deserving of your grace and mercy?
