There are lots of 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 it appears 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 could be cruel and most everyone I am aware of previously or another has blatantly gushed if you ask me ” GAWD, this is terrible, but I must say i love animals significantly more than PEOPLE”… so, um, lets take a look at this degree of reality, because frankly, I’ve been on this planet a great while now and I feel the same way… How come it, humans can LOVE animals so much easier compared to the person sitting next for them within their vegan spinach yoga class? (I just made that up. Far as I am aware 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 around to do that and I’m certainly no psych major or even minor. All of us realize that it’s more difficult to love thy neighbor total, because heck, we’re a DIFFICULT breed to deal with. I simply heard something thought provoking that the actor and humanitarian allegedly stated. It had been a quote along the lines that 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 only real 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’s the magic elixir. “The Secret Sauce” to paraphrase among my business mentors. And although it is most commendable which our O. angels on this planet are here to exhibit us how things CAN BE, I still find a big gap somehow to make 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’ve the maximum amount of potential for operating within our higher selves at an ideal 10 by default each day even as we do, winning the lottery. Maybe that sounded a bit too cynical so before someone stones me, I’ll rephrase: We must get real, get a hold, and take command of our personal lives. Sure, we zip beyond our limited consciousness zone for a couple hours whenever we read spiritually elevating books, Google O’s name, or watch a doctor from Oz inform us what individuals have been trying to tell us since the 60’s about lifestyle wellness. My point is… How most of us on the market, REALLY switch off these Higher- self inspirational shows, or leave a Self Empowerment seminar and say “Hey!… I’m willing to ascend myself into a new way of being”… correction… actually most of us DO say that in heat of the minute while we’re pumped up and inspired. It’s AFTER that seismic moment has passed that individuals tend to regress back in 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 self help groups and support groups still in existence as a result of human short comings. At the very least we’re creating jobs on some level. Don’t tell me I will be “plugged in” to raised thoughts. Of course I should… and so should you… but you’re still reading this informative article, right? It’s because you know I’m telling the truth. I do my utmost best to tell the truth. You need to too. You should be your true self and do your best never to harm others even though you’re authentically pissed off, or in a murderous rage, or depressed beyond hope because humanity seems to have let you down when your favorite furry pet didn’t. You can own dozens of states to be and still be strong within them… This way you are able to put your head down in your pillow at night. You didn’t make the planet more toxic. You merely owned that you weren’t operating at that perfect 10 and that’s surely okay. All of us get that. What no one likes is the toxic person who’s unaware that they’re spreading their debauchery everywhere they walk, talk and stop. Once you KNOW you’re in a lecherous mood, and recognize you’re wallowing in your toxic ocean, at the very least others can laugh with you in your momentary folly of blind rage.
Lets tap into yet another trending challenge. Do I EVEN need to delve into the dangerous dimensions that accelerate when you try to obtain a live person on the other end of the device for handling problems with bills, bank cards, over charges, insurance bloopers or, heaven forbid, legal stuff? Really, most of us realize that none people can afford to truly have a job anymore what fans love. We must be home full time to take care of the over flowing paperwork and telephone 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 are a war veteran thinking you have post stress because you want to strangle the small 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 real place you can find an affordable bereavement group around is at the local veterinarians office… lets deal with it. You most likely Don’t need therapy. You’ll need a vacation. And why should YOU be exempt from the same hellish frustrations that the rest people are coping with each day? I can’t think of among my clients or friends that isn’t FILLED to the brim with credible, viable, justifiable reasons to be good and PISSED off the majority of the time. In terms of 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 room enough within our DNA to carry any longer 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 in our power and understand that WE have reached choice. I didn’t share my thoughts here to generate more drama. I shared them to verify you’re not the only one on the market finding it simpler to love animals significantly more than people, just in case you thought you were. There are many of us. However, try not to WEAR your rage like a badge… figure out how to bask in it for some time, and view it for what it truly is. It doesn’t own you if you don’t let it. Your day will go no matter which way you choose to change 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 significantly more than your annoying neighbor, but ultimately, lets keep things in perspective shall we? You’re in charge of you. And most of us have a horrible lot to be grateful for.
As a therapeutic suggestion, perhaps read an uplifting book before you turn into bed.. pay attention to your yoga teacher, have a green tea… punch your pillow out… but be grateful you’re still breathing and are able to vent. Strive to do a little better… Really. Be the bigger person, love humankind on whatever level you are able to muster in the minute regardless of all it’s shortcomings… There are always a lot of exceptional humans on the market covertly blessing the world. Don’t waste more of one’s precious energy being pissed off than you need to. Remember, what you give attention to expands, so, plug yourself into something worthwhile and of course… be kind to animals. Wait one minute? I do believe I simply catapulted into my higher self…
