Disclaimer: This is an opinion piece on how I choose to process the recent attacks in Europe. It's a perspective that is my truth.
Today I watched a talk show host start the conversation by saying; 'Why do they hate us?’ The topic of debate of course the recent attacks in Paris. They debated, I listened and then went on to make some dinner.
That opening statement however, didn't leave my mind. It didn't sit well with me and I knew in my heart of hearts, it wasn't true.
I have said before that one of the life lessons I learned was that when someone is mean to you, it’s a reflection of what's going on with them and not you. This is true every single time.
I my 20’s I had a fierce corporate ambition and today as I was thinking about this piece I remember that I have been guilty of gossip when others were doing better than me. I was though on them, I isolated them and didn’t show appreciation for their work. It had nothing to do with them, it was about how I perceived the impact of their success on mine!
In the end, my behavior didn’t stop their success or mine. But what it did was to leave me bitter, stressed and unsatisfied. And the joke, after a decade I would realize corporate glory was really not my idea of fun!
But how to justify this statement; ‘Why do they hate us?’
Is it really about us? Can it be that they are acting out? And why would any blindly follow anyone? What would it take to empty out what they know and accept and follow a purpose?
They have a purpose? Yes they do!
Having a purpose is good right? Yes. Then what?
Over the ages, as a collective we seem to have embraced standardization, one way of doing things. And we seem to lost practice of loved based tolerance.
Everyone on every side, at least from what I can see, is sympathetic to their reason and intolerant for anything else.
As conscious creators didn’t we come here to experience via the physical dimension? It’s easy to get caught up with the urgency created by big images that seem so present, immediate and wanting attention. It’s easy to travel the route of fear and negativity.
Tonight, I invite you to start thinking about loved based tolerance. Let’s focus our attention to creating vibrations and conversations that are positive.
Think of one thing / person that is different than what you expect. Write down three positive things that that thing or person contributes to life in general.
Here’s what I can think of for the Paris situation:
As I am, I encourage you to get caught up with the feel good type of energy. The best thing each you, my dearest readers, can do for the folks on either side, is raise your thoughts to the good that will come out of this.
Tonight, think on what you’d like the human collective to be.
