There are lots of paths to spiritual evolution. That is no secret. The paths we seem 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 can definitely suck. Humanity overall can be cruel and most everyone I understand of at once or another has blatantly gushed in my experience ” GAWD, this is terrible, but I truly love animals more than PEOPLE”… so, um, lets have a look at this degree of reality, because frankly, I’ve been with this planet an excellent while now and Personally i think the exact same way… How come it, humans can LOVE animals so easier compared to person sitting next to them inside 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’ve all of the enlightened ones on earth here around to do that and I’m no psych major as well as minor. All of us know that it’s more difficult to love thy neighbor total, because heck, we’re a DIFFICULT breed to deal with. I just heard something thought provoking an actor and humanitarian allegedly stated. It absolutely was a quote along the lines that he loved humanity but found it harder to like people. And lets give 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 compared to guy who shares our office space.
Animals love us unconditionally and perhaps that’s the magic elixir. “The Secret Sauce” to paraphrase one of my business mentors. And while it is most commendable our O. angels with this planet are here to show us how things CAN BE, I still find a big gap somehow in making the leap to operating at that perfect inspirational 10 zone on a daily basis when I’m coping with the planet at large. Lets face it people, we have the maximum amount of chance of operating in our higher selves at a great 10 automatically each day once we do, winning the lottery. Maybe that sounded a touch too cynical so before someone stones me, I’ll rephrase: We must get real, get a grasp, and take command of our personal lives. Sure, we zip outside of our limited consciousness zone for a couple hours when we read spiritually elevating books, Google O’s name, or watch a health care provider from Oz reveal what people have been trying to tell us considering that the 60’s about lifestyle wellness. My point is… How many of us on the market, REALLY switch 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 many of us DO claim that in the heat of the moment while we’re pumped up and inspired. It’s AFTER that seismic moment has passed that people have a tendency to 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 the self help groups and support groups still in existence due to human short comings. At the least we’re creating jobs on some level. Don’t tell me I should be “plugged in” to higher 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 do my utmost best to tell the truth. You ought to too. Just be your true self and do your absolute best to not harm others even though you’re authentically pissed off, or in a murderous rage, 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 dozens of states to be and still be strong within them… In this way you are able to put your head down on your own pillow at night. You didn’t make the planet more toxic. You just owned that you weren’t operating at that perfect 10 and that’s surely okay. All of us get that. What no body likes is the toxic person who’s unaware they are spreading their debauchery everywhere they walk, talk and stop. Whenever you KNOW you are in a lecherous mood, and recognize you’re wallowing in your own toxic ocean, at the least others can laugh with you in your momentary folly of blind rage.
Lets tap into an additional trending challenge. Do I EVEN need to delve to the dangerous dimensions that accelerate once you try to get a live person on another end of the device for handling problems with bills, credit cards, over charges, insurance bloopers or, heaven forbid, legal stuff? Really, we all know that none of us are able to afford to truly have a job anymore what fans love entertainment. We must be home full time to take care of the over flowing paperwork and calls that demand our undivided attention, just to keep family members 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 should be a battle veteran thinking you have post stress because you want to strangle the little old lady who’s been blocking the grocery aisle too much time, or you are a therapist thinking you’ll need therapy, or you’re planning something diabolical for the intern who misdiagnosed your medical X-ray, or the sole place you’ll find an inexpensive bereavement group around are at your neighborhood veterinarians office… lets deal with it. You probably Don’t need therapy. You’ll need a vacation. And why should YOU be exempt from the exact same hellish frustrations that the others of us are coping with each day? I can’t consider one of my clients or friends that isn’t FILLED to the brim with credible, viable, justifiable reasons to be good and PISSED off a lot 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 probably not enough room in our DNA to hold any more agitation than the majority of us are driven to on a daily basis even though we’re being angels… my suggestion is to obtain back to our power and understand that WE are in choice. I didn’t share my thoughts here to produce more drama. I shared them to ensure you’re not alone on the market finding it better to love animals more than people, in the event you thought you were. There are many of us. However, try not to WEAR your rage like a badge… learn 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 day will go which ever way you choose 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 more than your annoying neighbor, but ultimately, lets keep things in perspective shall we? You’re in control of you. And we all have a terrible lot to be grateful for.
As a therapeutic suggestion, perhaps read an uplifting book before you turn into bed.. tune in to your yoga teacher, have a green tea… punch your pillow out… but be grateful you are still breathing and have the ability to vent. Strive to complete somewhat better… Really. Be greater 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 on the market covertly blessing the world. Don’t waste more of your precious energy being pissed off than you’ll need to. Remember, that which you give attention to expands, so, plug yourself into something worthwhile and of course… be kind to animals. Wait a moment? I believe I just catapulted into my higher self…
