Forgiveness and tolerance

There is no end to emotions like hatred and acts of violence! Country after country, religion after religion, colour after colour, gender after gender,gender roles after gender roles,species after species! Where does it stop?

Is it really so hard for us to feel oneness? That we all are alive, we all need similar necessities like food,oxygen, clothes, a roof to live under and above all love?

We’re trying to get one up, by killing/hurting our own kind! And where do we think it’s going to take us? 

Watching this movie ‘little boy’ was an eye opener for me. I was left wondering, what could possibly be the way to bring this world, this beautiful world feel all the love? 

Where does all the hatred come from? I guess it comes from our egos, that expect the world to behave in a certain way. When our expectations aren’t met, the easiest option is hate! I wasn’t treated well, so I hate. My parents weren’t treated well so I hate. My country, my colour, my gender wasn’t treated well so I HATE!!

Is it really so easy to hate? To hurt others? Aren’t we hurting ourselves, our own kind, our own fellow ‘living beings’ ? 

Where does this post lead me? The only take away, capable of being acted upon,at least for me, is forgiveness and tolerance! I wish each one of us, all of us who are alive today, choose to tolerate one another, choose tolerance over hurt. If not all of us, at least me!

And believe me, it isn’t really easy! When someone you love judges you, I see a really big hole in my energy field draining me, and I see the person happily working on that emptiness to make it bigger n bigger. Can they help it? May be its their emptiness that just expands to our energy field😔😢

The weight of expectations we allow ourselves to carry – that’s the factor that needs to go..

If we can forgive and tolerate ourselves for every ‘wrong’ that we perceive we’ve done, I guess we can forgive any one and everyone else. Charity as they say, begins at home. All we need is to have a big heart to say ‘it’s okay you! You goofed up and it’s okay!’ Whoever the ‘you’ is..

Whether it is ourself or any one else. Doesn’t matter. What matters is the fact that, that ‘you’ is forgiven!!

John Lennon’s ‘imagine’ is something I ‘imagine’ too. I believe in it too. Il do my little to get there 🙂


Toxic personalities – what to do with them?

The effect that toxic people have on us is too contagious even to be observed ..

Even before you know, the toxic personality has passed on the toxicity and there’s a pretty bright chance that we may carry the chain reaction till some one brave chooses to do something about it!!

Have you met people who have no sense of appreciation about anything happening around them? They keep whining all the time, complaining , blaming??

  
Some choose to feel better about themselves by putting down the others around.. They may say mean things to you or about you behind your back and that is because they feel inadequate themselves..

These people seriously need way too much love than we think they do!! And I’m not being sarcastic here.

Their need for love gets manifested in the form of their toxicity!! When we are sick , we need to be taken care of, we feel like being loved.. And when someone does that we heal better

A toxic person is in a similar state!! Needs healing and love ..

If the next time we meet or interact with a toxic person, if we can step back and see the real cause of their toxicity – I will offer tons of gratitude to the universe for allowing me to see and share this lesson 🙂

How dare you?

‘ Do I look crazy here, to go on and on in the kitchen? Trying my best to come up with varieties that match everyone’s tastes, n then hear what’s just not enough to make this dish perfect? ‘

Is this all that you’ve got to say about me?

Hey hey hey… Just Pause!!!! Rewind a bit !!! Now Play!!!

Was that about you? or was it about the dish you made?

Yep!! The world is too fast paced & let’s admit  that we don’t have even a second to spare, to think n differentiate between the two! So much hurt inside of us, for something that has nothing to do with us- Lol..

Funny na!!

We attach so much value to all our beautiful relationships, knowing that they mean a lot to us, yet we fail to see this difference that can eliminate all the pain and anger !!

At work, which is now an integral part of everyone’s lives – My work = ME!! Criticism @ my work = criticism @ Me..

Haha ha -this work, which is not gonna accompany me any further than a few decades gets to be ME 🙂 Wow!!

What do I know about myself? Nothin I’m sure!! Else I wouldn’t have dared to equalize it with something as trivial as work..

I’m pausing everytime an arguement comes up, n checking with myself if its really me! N amazing, that I don’t get hurt when I see that its not even close to what I am 🙂

I never dare to insult myself now, with trivial stuff like this..

How dare you?
