Day 10 of 29 Days of Spiritual Messages.
Today’s little gem of a passage comes from Mahatma Gandhi.
Let’s see what shiny shards of wisdom we can gather for our spiritual growth.
“A ‘No’ uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a ‘Yes’ merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.”

Saying no when we mean no is about reclaiming our power. As we say yes to meet someone else’s requests or demands when our hearts are screaming no, we give up our power to that person. Each yes to that person is a no to us. This opens the door to anguish, anger, resentment or total submission, and we lose our self-respect.
