Daily Om ~ People Who Don’t Get It

doi-1033When dealing with people who seem very unaware, remember that everyone must find their own way to awakening. You may be someone who understands the true nature of reality, perceiving deeply that we all emanate from the same source, that we are all essentially one, and that we are here on earth to love one another. To understand this is to be awakened to the true nature of the self, and it is a blessing. Nevertheless, people who just don’t get it are seemingly everywhere and, often, in positions of power. It can be frustrating and painful to watch them behave unconsciously. We all encounter individuals of this bent in our families, at work, and in all areas of public life. It is easy to find ourselves feeling intolerant of these people, wishing we could be free of them even though we know that separation from them is an illusion.

It helps sometimes to think of us all as different parts of one psyche. Just as within our own hearts and minds we have dark places that need healing, the heart and mind of the world has its dark places. The health of the whole organism depends upon the relative health of the individuals within it. We increase harmony when we hold onto the light, not allowing it to be darkened by judgment, anger, and fear about those who behave unconsciously. It’s easier to accomplish this if we don’t focus on the negative qualities of individuals and instead focus on how increasing our own light will increase the light of the overall picture.

When dealing with people who seem very unconscious, it helps to remember that every one must find their own way to awakening and that the experiences they are having are an essential part of their process. Holding them in the light of our own energy may be the best way to awaken theirs. At the same time, we are inspired by their example to look within and shed light on our own unconscious places, sacrificing the urge to judge and surrendering instead to humble self-inquiry.

    This post by DeepG-Glade gave me a wonderful perspective on living, seeing and sensing spirit in a world where many people did not grow up with those senses. She gave me a sense of confidence that I did not know I was lacking. Thank you Deep-Glade

  2. In my life I never pitied the ignorant. I only thought that I was odd. And I wished I could be more normal and care about the (seemingly) trivial things that were important to my friends and family. I did not have an aunt or grandmother or funny cousin that I could confide in. I was always the lone one in the room trying not to talk about the deep roots of thoughts and life. Trying my very best to blend in.

    Thank you for your post it is exciting that one day I might feel like your post and have that to work on! LOL

    Many blessings!
