“Don’t let the behavior of others steal your inner peace”
The Dalai Lama
The concept of love and unity is so simple — it’s essence is purely divine. However, as we move forward in Love and Unity it is important not to be shaken by the turmoil in other’s lives. We are not here to fix anyone, but simply love them through it — regardless of circumstance — casting no judgement.
As an acutely empathetic person it becomes difficult not to carry everyone’s baggage for them. I have learned, however, this just hinders the person you wish to help, and jars your sense of inner peace.
We know we must love ourselves first, and beyond this — as we move forward in our lives we must stay deeply rooted in our inner peace. while still empathizing with others. This may seem like a difficult balancing act amid the chaos that surrounds many of us at times.
Personally, I have found it best for me as I try to see another’s perspective/ feel their emotions to do the following: Approach with an open and loving heart. Help if possible, even a smile helps. Send love to the person/ people. Then let it pass through me.
Do not carry their emotional baggage around. As you stay grounded in your peace and self love — you begin to radiate love to all those you come in contact with. In doing this you are planting seeds of love and unity in the minds and hearts of others.
Jesus said: “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself”… Mark 12:30
This means beyond all differences, or judgement. We are not here to judge who is worthy of our love — we are here to LOVE — for ALL are worthy.
When we put these differences aside, and begin to love others not IN SPITE of their differences, but because their differences make them BEAUTIFUL and RARE like a jewel– we shall find our bliss.
