There are lots of paths to spiritual evolution. That is no secret. The paths we appear to aspire toward though as humans either evokes the opening of our heart-centered energies, or it seems we’re following some manifesto that feeds our chaotic ego. While I certainly appreciate poignant writers whose messages of inspiration move me to leave myself post-it notes on my desk each morning… somehow, I’ve gotta tell you… that airy-fairy stuff just doesn’t benefit me most days. As a sage mentor once uttered during our walk… ” The hardest lessons you’ll ever learn, are of the humankind, kind”… Yes,… no kidding Sage Mentor, People really can suck. Humanity overall could be cruel and most everyone I understand of previously or another has blatantly gushed in my experience ” GAWD, that is terrible, but I really love animals significantly more than PEOPLE”… so, um, lets take a peek at this degree of reality, because frankly, I’ve been with this planet a good while now and Personally i think exactly the same way… How come it, humans can LOVE animals so much simpler than the person sitting next in their mind within their vegan spinach yoga class? (I just made that up. Far as I understand spinach yoga classes don’t exist.)… YET.
Really now… You don’t need me to map out Psychology 101. We have most of the enlightened ones in the world here with us to do that and I’m no psych major as well as minor. All of us understand that it’s harder to love thy neighbor total, because heck, we’re a DIFFICULT breed to deal with. I just heard something thought provoking that the actor and humanitarian allegedly stated. It absolutely was a quote across the lines he loved humanity but found it harder to like people. And lets provide a well respected mystic and author his due when in one of is own famous magic books he states: ” Human kind are the sole animals in nature that strive to work against themselves ” Please rinse and repeat that sentence 3 times… Now, we’re getting someplace… A sneak peek into why we like animals more than the guy who shares our office space.
Animals love us unconditionally and perhaps that is the magic elixir. “The Secret Sauce” to paraphrase certainly one of my business mentors. And while it is most commendable which our O. angels with this planet are here to show us how things CAN BE, I still find a big gap somehow for making the leap to operating at that perfect inspirational 10 zone on a regular basis when I’m coping with the planet at large. Lets face it people, we have the maximum amount of chance of operating inside our higher selves at an ideal 10 by default every day even as we do, winning the lottery. Maybe that sounded a touch too cynical so before someone stones me, I’ll rephrase: We have to get real, get a hold, and take command of our personal lives. Sure, we zip beyond our limited consciousness zone for a few hours whenever we read spiritually elevating books, Google O’s name, or watch a doctor from Oz inform us what folks have already been trying to tell us considering that the 60’s about lifestyle wellness. My point is… How most of us available, REALLY turn fully off these Higher- self inspirational shows, or leave a Self Empowerment seminar and say “Hey!… I’m ready to ascend myself into a new way of being”… correction… actually most of us DO say that in heat of the moment while we’re pumped up and inspired. It’s AFTER that seismic moment has passed that we often regress back to our comfortable self- defeating or lazy habit-ed patterns.
Oh, give it a rest. Don’t get angry with me for sounding cynical. Think of all of the self help groups and support groups still in existence because of human short comings. At least we’re creating jobs on some level. Don’t tell me I will be “plugged in” to raised thoughts. Obviously I should… and so should you… but you’re still reading this short article, right? It’s because you understand I’m telling the truth. I usually do my utmost best to tell the truth. You need to too. Just be your true self and do your best not to harm others even when you’re authentically pissed off, or in a murderous rage what fans love anime review, or depressed beyond hope because humanity seems to have enable you to down when your preferred furry pet didn’t. You are able to own all those states of being and be strong within them… In this way you are able to put your mind down in your pillow at night. You didn’t make the planet more toxic. You only owned that you weren’t operating at that perfect 10 and that is surely okay. All of us get that. What no-one likes may be the toxic person who is unaware that they are spreading their debauchery everywhere they walk, talk and stop. When you KNOW you are in a lecherous mood, and recognize you’re wallowing in your toxic ocean, at the least others can laugh with you in your momentary folly of blind rage.
Lets tap into one more trending challenge. Do I EVEN need to delve into the dangerous dimensions that accelerate once you try to acquire a live person on one other end of the device for handling difficulties with bills, bank cards, over charges, insurance bloopers or, heaven forbid, legal stuff? Really, most of us understand that none folks are able to have a job anymore. We have to be home full time to look after the over flowing paperwork and phone calls that demand our undivided attention, just to keep your family administration afloat. Its a painstaking decision to feed the 2 year old or lose your place on the device after being on hold for 3 hours. So, if you’re a battle veteran thinking you have post stress because you intend to strangle the small old lady who’s been blocking the grocery aisle too long, or you are a therapist thinking you need therapy, or you’re planning something diabolical for the intern who misdiagnosed your medical X-ray, or the sole place you will find an affordable bereavement group in town is at your local veterinarians office… lets cope with it. You almost certainly Don’t need therapy. You need a vacation. And why should YOU be exempt from exactly the same hellish frustrations that the others folks are coping with every day? I can’t think of certainly one of my clients or friends that isn’t FILLED to the brim with credible, viable, justifiable reasons to be good and PISSED off all of the time. As for myself, I’m actually pretty clear thinking and grounded when I’m stunningly pissed off.
I’ve a possible alternative. While there is most likely not enough room inside our DNA to carry any longer agitation than many of us are driven to on a regular basis even when we’re being angels… my suggestion is to get back to our power and understand that WE are in choice. I didn’t share my thoughts here to generate more drama. I shared them to ensure you’re not alone available finding it simpler to love animals significantly more than people, in case you thought you were. There are more of us. However, do not WEAR your rage like a badge… figure out how to bask inside it for some time, and see it for what it truly is. It doesn’t own you unless you let it. Your entire day will go which way you determine to change it notwithstanding the ATM machine eating your bank card again. I say, be bold, be pissed off, be disgruntled with humanity, love your pet parrot significantly more than your annoying neighbor, but in the long run, lets keep things in perspective shall we? You’re responsible for you. And most of us have a horrible lot to be grateful for.
As a therapeutic suggestion, perhaps read an uplifting book when you turn into bed.. listen to your yoga teacher, have a green tea… punch your pillow out… but be grateful you are still breathing and are able to vent. Strive to accomplish a little better… Really. Be the bigger person, love humankind on whatever level you are able to muster in the moment notwithstanding all it’s shortcomings… There are a lot of exceptional humans available covertly blessing the world. Don’t waste more of one’s precious energy being pissed off than you need to. Remember, what you focus on expands, so, plug yourself into something worthwhile and of course… be kind to animals. Wait a minute? I believe I just catapulted into my higher self…
