Did someone cut close to you when passing you? Did you give the finger or mutter to yourself, or out loud, your anger at that?
Consider this. If you choose to vent anger, there is something in you that cuts into people’s space and could be off-putting to others.
If you muttered to yourself, well, that person has some kind of issue going on; maybe they need to quickly get to a hospital for someone, or drank too much coffee before it got away from them…maybe they weren’t paying close enough attention, as happens to the best of us, and have no way to apologize…whatever it might be, there but for the grace of God go I.
Even if it was their oversized, large ego; don’t we all know by now, that ego makes up for an emptiness in the soul of not thinking we’re good enough? Send them unconditional love and hope they find self worth.
Now how many people actually stay calm and keep from reacting vehemently. If any of us allow something like that to mess with the inner sanctity we created, we’ll always be living our lives based on others. Hmmm. Wow. Aha.
When we lower to the other’s lower actions or word, we personally create the mirror image of that low frequency, to anger our self.
What may have just occurred we will never know the why but why would they try to hurt you or I, or frustrate us at the very least? Do they even know you? Probably not meant for you, personally; maybe the collective you of the world. If they haven’t learned to change and raise energy, it’s just random anger.
They don’t even know you. And the reason you decided they did what they did, with sheer confidentce that you’re right, probably has very little truth. But now you are living and creating an action from your self based on illusion.
So you have become the lower consciousness; lower than what just occurred.
Really? Me? I’m not that way. They started it. And you had a choice how to finish it.
Sometimes we simply react from superficial nasty thinking, which may lie lurking close by in your own heart. Ready to be right at someone else’s being wrong. Is that they only way we can be right?
Who are we trying to prove ourselves to? The person in the passenger seat? What if your reaction made them change their opinion about you? Little person for your ego-inclined heart? Or big person for your big heart?
I know which I’d be ‘turned on’ by. Not the ego. Anyone can hide behind ego. But it is the sexy big heart that I feel safe and happy with.
Did someone look at you the wrong way? How do you know they weren’t twitching? Or feeling ‘less-than’ in front of your fine self. Or feeling your dark energy which leads the way before you, and involuntarily responding to your dark heart?
Are you in the slow, middle of the road, or fast lane? Take the time to smell the roses as you coast along in what you perceive as the sweet life. Are you middle of the road; not committing to one way or the other, ready to go whichever direction you might feel at any moment, if things come at you from either side, though giving yourself wide space to be able to handle it all without being too fast to think before responding?
Or are you in the fast lane, whizzing by competitively, living only for the destination instead of being aware of a journey.; that other people are in your life too. Do you pass by precious life so fast that your mind quickly assesses with not-well-thought-out responses because you just want to beat everyone.
People can get hurt by your dust. Then you lose. Are a loser. Not really but you may feel that way if you trod over others and begin to notice the effect it has.
No matter where you are heading, be aware of your thoughts Now. In this moment. Before you criticize another, please look within and ask yourself, what in me brought that to me. For what reason, what in me keeps me from taking my own time to slow down and look at myself and how I mirror that.
Who is living only competitively, acting and speaking in only Me terms. Or cooperatively? Gee I got to see how fast that car is and how well it handles. I will get one myself and enjoy it without having to show off in a bully-like way.
Are you a show off bully, asleep at the wheel, or an awake, aware conscious person, part of the bigger whole, enjoying sharing the ride?
Perhaps stop from assuming and blaming. Arrive alive. Make friends on your path. You’ll attract more with honey than your bitterness.
That, right there, is the key. Now enjoy and blaze a new path for others to follow.
Life is what you make it. (I’ve made a new weekly class for You. Read below!)
