There are many paths to spiritual evolution. That’s no secret. The paths we seem to aspire toward though as humans either evokes the opening of our heart-centered energies, or this indicates 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 really suck. Humanity overall could be cruel and most everyone I understand of previously or another has blatantly gushed to me ” GAWD, this is terrible, but I truly love animals more than PEOPLE”… so, um, lets take a look only at that degree of reality, because frankly, I’ve been with this planet a great while now and I feel exactly the same way… How come it, humans can LOVE animals so much simpler compared to the person sitting next in their mind 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 have most of the enlightened ones on earth here around to accomplish this and I’m no psych major as well as minor. Most 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 an 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 his famous magic books he states: ” Human kind are the only 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 the guy who shares our office space.
Animals love us unconditionally and perhaps that is the magic elixir. “The Secret Sauce” to paraphrase one of my business mentors. And although it is most commendable which our O. angels with this planet are here to show us how things CAN BE, I still look for a big gap somehow to make the leap to operating at that perfect inspirational 10 zone on a regular basis when I’m coping with the entire world at large. Lets face it people, we have the maximum amount of possibility of operating inside our higher selves at a great 10 by default each day once we do, winning the lottery. Maybe that sounded a bit too cynical so before someone stones me, I’ll rephrase: We need to get real, get a grip, and take command of our own lives. Sure, we zip outside our limited consciousness zone for some hours whenever we read spiritually elevating books, Google O’s name, or watch a health care provider from Oz reveal what individuals have now been trying to share with us since the 60’s about lifestyle wellness. My point is… How most of us out there, REALLY turn off these Higher- self inspirational shows, or leave a Self Empowerment seminar and say “Hey!… I’m prepared to ascend myself right into a new method of being”… correction… actually most of us DO say that in the warmth of as soon as while we’re pumped up and inspired. It’s AFTER that seismic moment has passed that individuals 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 ought to be “plugged in” to raised thoughts. Of course I should… and so should you… but you’re still reading this information, right? It’s because you know I’m telling the truth. I usually do my utmost best to share with the truth. You must too. You should be your true self and do your best not to harm others even though you’re authentically pissed off, or in a murderous rage, or depressed beyond hope because humanity appears to have let you down when your preferred furry pet didn’t. You can own dozens of states to be and still be strong within them… In this manner you can put your head down in your pillow at night. You didn’t make the entire world more toxic. You just owned that you weren’t operating at that perfect 10 and that is surely okay. Most of us get that. What no one likes could be the toxic person who’s unaware they are spreading their debauchery everywhere they walk, talk and stop. Once you KNOW you’re in a lecherous mood, and recognize you’re wallowing is likely to 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 have to delve into the dangerous dimensions that accelerate once you try to obtain a live person on another end of the device for handling problems with bills, bank cards, over charges, insurance bloopers or what fans love, heaven forbid, legal stuff? Really, we all understand that none of us can afford to truly have a job anymore. We need to be home full-time to look after the over flowing paperwork and 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 put 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 intend to strangle the little old lady who’s been blocking the grocery aisle too long, or you’re a therapist thinking you need therapy, or you’re planning something diabolical for the intern who misdiagnosed your medical X-ray, or the only place you can find a reasonable bereavement group in town is at your local veterinarians office… lets handle it. You most likely Don’t need therapy. You need a vacation. And why should YOU be exempt from exactly the same hellish frustrations that the rest of us are coping with each day? I can’t think of 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. Since there is not likely enough space inside our DNA to keep anymore agitation than most of us are driven to on a regular basis even though we’re being angels… my suggestion is to have back to our power and understand that WE have reached choice. I didn’t share my thoughts here to create more drama. I shared them to ensure you’re not the only one out there finding it more straightforward to love animals more than people, in case you thought you were. There are more of us. However, do not WEAR your rage like a badge… learn to bask inside it for a while, and see it for what it truly is. It doesn’t own you if you don’t let it. Every day should go which ever way you choose to transform it regardless of 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 in the end, lets keep things in perspective shall we? You’re responsible for you. And we all have a terrible lot to be grateful for.
As a therapeutic suggestion, perhaps read an uplifting book before you become bed.. pay attention to your yoga teacher, have a natural tea… punch your pillow out… but be grateful you’re still breathing and can vent. Strive to complete somewhat better… Really. Be the bigger person, love humankind on whatever level you can muster in as soon as regardless of all it’s shortcomings… There are certainly a large amount of exceptional humans out there covertly blessing the world. Don’t waste more of one’s precious energy being pissed off than you 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 do believe I just catapulted into my higher self…
