There are many paths to spiritual evolution. That’s no secret. The paths we appear 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 work for 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 really can suck. Humanity overall can be cruel and most everyone I know of at one time or another has blatantly gushed in my experience ” GAWD, this is terrible, but I must say i love animals a lot more than PEOPLE”… so, um, lets take a peek at this degree of reality, because frankly, I’ve been with this planet an excellent while now and I feel the same way… Exactly why is it, humans can LOVE animals so easier compared to person sitting next for them inside their vegan spinach yoga class? (I just made that up. Far as I know 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 achieve that and I’m no psych major or even minor. Most of us know that it’s more difficult to love thy neighbor over-all, because heck, we’re a DIFFICULT breed to deal with. I recently heard something thought provoking that an actor and humanitarian allegedly stated. It had been a quote along the lines he loved humanity but found it harder to like people. And lets give 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 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 while it is most commendable which our O. angels with this planet are here to exhibit us how things CAN BE, I still find a big gap somehow for making the leap to operating at that perfect inspirational 10 zone on a daily basis when I’m coping with the world at large. Lets face it people, we have just as much potential for operating in our higher selves at a perfect 10 automatically every day even as we do, winning the lottery. Maybe that sounded a touch too cynical so before someone stones me, I’ll rephrase: We must get real, get a grip, and take command of our personal lives. Sure, we zip outside of our limited consciousness zone for some hours once we read spiritually elevating books, Google O’s name, or watch a doctor from Oz tell us what folks have now been trying to inform us considering that the 60’s about lifestyle wellness. My point is… How many of us out there, REALLY switch off these Higher- self inspirational shows, or leave a Self Empowerment seminar and say “Hey!… I’m prepared to ascend myself into a new way of being”… correction… actually many of us DO say that in the heat of the moment while we’re pumped up and inspired. It’s AFTER that seismic moment has passed that people often 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 the self help groups and support groups still available due to human short comings. At least we’re creating jobs on some level. Don’t tell me I will be “plugged in” to raised thoughts. Needless to say 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 usually do my utmost best to inform the truth. You should too. You should be your true self and do your absolute best to not harm others even though you’re authentically pissed off, or in a murderous rage, or depressed beyond hope because humanity seems to have enable you to down when your favorite furry pet didn’t. You are able to own all those states of being and be strong within them… In this way you can put your head down in your pillow at night. You didn’t make the world more toxic. You merely 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 is 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 in your toxic ocean, at 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 in to the dangerous dimensions that accelerate once you try to obtain a live person on the other end of the device for handling problems with bills, credit cards, over charges, insurance bloopers or, heaven forbid, legal stuff? Really, all of us know that none people can afford to truly have a job anymore. We must be home full-time to take care of the over flowing paperwork and phone calls that demand our undivided attention, just to keep the household administration afloat. Its a painstaking decision to feed the 2 year old or lose your place 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 want to strangle the little old lady who’s been blocking the grocery aisle a long time, or you’re a therapist thinking you will need therapy, or you’re planning something diabolical for the intern who misdiagnosed your medical X-ray, or the only place you will find an inexpensive bereavement group in town is at the local veterinarians office… lets cope with it. You probably Don’t need therapy. You will need a vacation. And why should YOU be exempt from the same hellish frustrations that the remainder people are coping with every 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 a lot of the time. For 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 in our DNA to hold any longer agitation than many of us are driven to on a daily basis even though we’re being angels… my suggestion is to have back in our power and remember that WE have reached choice. I didn’t share my thoughts here to create more drama. I shared them to confirm you’re not the only one out there finding it simpler to love animals a lot more than people, in the event you thought you were what fans love anime review. There are more of us. However, do not WEAR your rage such as for instance a badge… figure out how to bask inside for a time, and notice it for what it truly is. It doesn’t own you if you let it. Your day will go no matter which way you determine to transform it notwithstanding the ATM machine eating your bank card again. I say, be bold, be pissed off, be disgruntled with humanity, love your pet parrot a lot more than your annoying neighbor, but ultimately, lets keep things in perspective shall we? You’re in control of you. And all of us have a horrible lot to be grateful for.
As a therapeutic suggestion, perhaps read an uplifting book when you become bed.. listen to your yoga teacher, have a green tea… punch your pillow out… but be grateful you’re still breathing and can vent. Strive to do a little better… Really. Be the larger person, love humankind on whatever level you can muster in the moment notwithstanding 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 will need to. Remember, what you focus on expands, so, plug yourself into something worthwhile and of course… be kind to animals. Wait a moment? I do believe I recently catapulted into my higher self…
