We come to understand ourselves through relationships. People change, and they change us, whether it is family, friend or foe. Whether they love us or hate on us, we are creating an energy exchange between each other! The bell has rung! The class has begun.
Not all of us see it that way, after all, you might be thinking, “I AM NOT ‘THAT”…But…When you get, annoyed, irritated, or just filled with so much love for that person, you are an expression of the other, like it or not. We can only be tripped up by something or someone we have experienced in ourselves, that we subconsciously recognize, or why else would it bother us, or bring out the love in us.
You see me, I see me, but the two shall not always agree, we are either too busy resisting, or we are bathing in the love we feel for each other. Either way, we are vibing.
Each of us has a different image of ‘ourselves’ in our minds. There are prejudices, expectations, beliefs, and preconceived notions, not to mention; great and not so great experiences others have with us. But…We are having these experiences together because we are in each other, we are seeking out the familiar parts of our healed and unhealed selves.
We experience ourselves from our interior castle. Based on what you know or believe about yourself; that is how you will receive others, as I too will see myself, and you, based on my own agenda of beliefs. There is something in each of us that we are resisting, why else are we irritated, conversely, why else do we feel so much love for the other?
knowing this can takes some of the pressure off to be a certain way, because every person you meet will ‘see’ you differently, ‘define’ you differently, regardless of what you do, and who you actually are in your own mind. What is most important; is how you see yourself even with the information that is shown to you. You can accept or reject.
All you can do is you; that is… what is authentic, what you believe to be your truth about who or what you are. The more you shapeshift who you are so you will liked, accepted, loved just kills the essence of you, and the other.
We are all inherently pure beings, learning about ourselves, with each other. What a privilege it is to share ourselves with others; The yellow brick road of accepting what is; loved, and free. To live in peace.
Everyone you meet is your mirror. Like it or not!
The challenge; people don’t WANT to see their own challenging thoughts reflected back to them. That means they might have to change their POV, and/or take a closer look at themselves. It can be scary noticing ourselves in others. I think that is why people become so negative when you come up with an idea, a way of being, it might challenge them. Or, things just got stirred up, and they are not even sure what to do with that part of themselves or you for that matter.
The good news; Everyone that irritates us is another opportunity to look deeply within ourselves, and them. Every person we meet in life is showing up at the ideal time in our lives to reflect something we need to heal and/or understand within ourselves. We can only love and accept others to the degree that we love and accept ourselves. As we focus on our light within, we bring out the light within others.
Bottom line; We are never the same over time or minutes. People may have one experience with us years ago, and in their mind, we’re the same person, when that’s not the reality for us or people that know us today. Let us love those who show up in love because it is all about love. Even if it rubs us the wrong way, at least we are getting polished.
We see what we want to see. But if you look deeper, you will see yourself in the other. In La’Kesh, I am other you!
