Where’s the love?
Obviously, not everyone can agree with everything or everyone. We may not like everyone. It seems that’s human nature.
We think different. We act different. We look and smell different. That doesn’t make us stupid, bad, or wrong.
The next time you are tempted to call someone dumb, illiterate, an asshole, crazy (or worse), take a moment and BREATHE.
Do you even know the meaning of the negative names you’re calling someone?
One of my family members is functionally illiterate, which is different than being illiterate. He was a slow reader all through school and couldn’t spell very well. He can read well enough to get by, holding good paying blue collar jobs his whole life and running businesses.
No one should call someone illiterate who has an extremely high IQ, runs billion dollar companies, and holds the highest political office in the country. A person can be intelligent, yet prefer not to be intellectual.
Most Americans speak on a 4th grade level. When a politician (or other authority) uses doublespeak or legalize, the majority simply cannot relate. Thus, it takes intelligence to understand that and speak to people at that level to gain a majority of listeners (and followers).
I thought all of my “Love and Light” friends believe in unifying? Name calling is NOT unifying. There, I’ve said it.
And for Christians, one of the most used directives in the Bible is, “If my children,” “When my people,” and so on, do this or that. God’s children, God’s people are called to be unifying, to serve, to Love.
What you resist persists
Will we get mad at certain things or people? Probably. Everyone does from time to time. But to live a wholly vibrant and fulfilling life, self control (starting with mastering your thoughts and emotions), is your work. Let others be.
Consider these quotes of Neville Goddard:
Do not dwell on the imperfection of yourself or others. To do so, is to impress the subconscious with these limitations.
What you do not want done unto you, do not feel that it is done to you or another.
Every feeling makes a subconscious impression.
The dominant of two feelings is the one expressed.
Look at yourself. Are you perfect? And what is perfection about anyway? As I’ve written about before, expand your mind to find perfection in the imperfection. Life’s an art more than it is a science.
If you really feel stuck and can’t move beyond the low vibrational name calling, I suggest doing The Work, beginning with The Four Questions with Byron Katie: http://thework.com/en/do-work
From doing The Work years ago, I ascertained that for most it’s nearly impossible (and not our job) to absolutely know some particular thing is true.
I learned to watch and feel for the resonant sensations in my body when I believe certain things are true (vs. how much better I feel when I let go of my judgment about whatever it is and move on to better feeling thoughts).
Again I ask, where’s the love?
Think about the times you wanted something and didn’t know exactly how to go about it.
It takes breaking a few eggs to make an omelette.
Only the pressure of gravity over time can create diamonds in the rubble. We’d waste our lives waiting for it to happen, wouldn’t we?
Allow and share LOVE in all directions, north, east, south, west, above, below, forward, and behind. Unseen and seen. Past, present, and future. Indeed, in ALL directions for the benefit of ALL.
By its very definition, Love is unconditional. You can’t say, “I love you” and then get mad when your loved one does something you do not like. That would mean you only like that person when they meet your conditions.
You don’t know what’s best for everyone. Nor do you or I know everything. Honestly, none of us will ever know Everything.
For about a year my daily routine had been to bow my head with hands together while turning and thanking each of the four directions, north, east, south, and west for all gifts and knowledge received.
One day, I realized that I had been missing something.
Now, I put my hands together and stand in silent Gratitude for ALL, above, below, in front of, behind, unseen, and seen. For those who have lived, and for those who will live.
The gratitude and love I feel and send is unconditional. I must send it to those I disagree with, as much or more than to those I agree with, otherwise I am not growing or expanding my consciousness.
So, stop the name calling. It only reverberates back to you. And then you may be the one with egg on your face.
