Inlakesh, I am you as you are me. Or I’m in you and your in me. How we view others is how we view ourselves, how we judge others is how we judge ourselves, but also how we love others is how we love ourselves.
If we could take a moment to look at what we are really upset about when we lose our senses with someone be them a close loved one or perfect stranger, what we might be able to perceive is the reflection of something in ourselves that we are seeing in them. Then when we are able to make this connection we can move forward to the forgiving stage, and then the real fun begins, are we able to forgive ourselves as easily as we forgive a loved one or perfect stranger. Or do we find forgiveness for ourselves easier? If we could all go through our days with the understanding that what we do to others we do to ourselves we might just turn this society around. Instead of laying blame we started to simply recognize the issue and collectively seek out solutions together with respect and love for each other then we would begin to see that respect and love coming back to ourselves from others. However the trick is to not do things with the expectation of receiving anything in return as this mars the intent of the service and when we do this we re-enter a judgement mentality of things. If we can approach our day to day life with true compassion for ourselves then true compassion will flow to and from others and true compassion is really love without expectations is it not? In doing things in this way we would eventually become less judgemental of others and ourselves and begin a stage of acceptance, tolerance and understanding, and the more we can accept, tolerate and understand others the more we would be able to accept, tolerate and understand ourselves. All are welcome here.
Also if anyone would care to open a discussion about anything please feel free, I am considering all of this as “Spirit Flow” I welcome any input from anyone.
