There are many paths to spiritual evolution. That is 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 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 know of at one time or another has blatantly gushed if you ask me ” GAWD, this is terrible, but I truly love animals a lot more than PEOPLE”… so, um, lets have a look as of this level of reality, because frankly, I’ve been with this planet an excellent while now and I’m exactly the same way… How come it, humans can LOVE animals so much simpler compared to the person sitting next to them in 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’ve all the enlightened ones in the world here with us to accomplish this and I’m certainly no psych major as well as minor. All of us understand that it’s more challenging to love thy neighbor over all, because heck, we’re a DIFFICULT breed to deal with. I simply heard something thought provoking that an actor and humanitarian allegedly stated. It was a quote across 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 his 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 certainly one of my business mentors. And whilst it is most commendable that our O. angels with this planet are here to exhibit us how things CAN BE, I still look for a big gap somehow to make the leap to operating at that perfect inspirational 10 zone on a regular basis when I’m coping with the entire world at large. Lets face it people, we have the maximum amount of possibility of operating within our higher selves at a perfect 10 by default every day once 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 grasp, and take command of our own lives. Sure, we zip beyond our limited consciousness zone for a few hours whenever we read spiritually elevating books, Google O’s name, or watch a doctor from Oz tell us what folks have now been trying to share with us since the 60’s about lifestyle wellness. My point is… How most of us on the market, REALLY turn off these Higher- self inspirational shows, or leave a Self Empowerment seminar and say “Hey!… I’m prepared to ascend myself into a new means of being”… correction… actually most of us DO claim that in the warmth of the minute while we’re pumped up and inspired. It’s AFTER that seismic moment has passed that individuals have a tendency to regress back into 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 available due to human short comings. At the very least we’re creating jobs on some level. Don’t tell me I would be “plugged in” to raised thoughts. Needless to say I should… and so should you… but you’re still reading this article, right? It’s because you understand I’m telling the truth. I usually do my utmost best to share with the truth. You should too. You should be your true self and do your absolute best to not harm others even when you’re authentically pissed off, or in a murderous rage, or depressed beyond hope because humanity seemingly have let you down when your chosen furry pet didn’t. You can own all those states to be and be strong within them… In this way you are able to put your face down on your pillow at night. You didn’t make the entire world more toxic. You only owned that you weren’t operating at that perfect 10 and that’s surely okay. All of us get that. What no one likes may be the toxic person who is unaware they are spreading their debauchery everywhere they walk, talk and stop. When you KNOW you’re in a lecherous mood, and recognize you’re wallowing in your own toxic ocean, at the 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 once you try to get a live person on the other end of the phone for handling problems with bills, credit cards, over charges, insurance bloopers or, heaven forbid, legal stuff? Really, we all understand that none folks can afford to truly have a job anymore. We must be home regular to look after the over flowing paperwork and telephone calls that demand our undivided attention, just to keep family members administration afloat. Its a painstaking decision to feed the 2 year old or lose your place on the phone after being on hold for 3 hours. So, if you’re a war veteran thinking you’ve post stress because you wish to strangle the little old lady who’s been blocking the grocery aisle a long time, or you’re a therapist thinking you’ll need therapy, or you’re planning something diabolical for the intern who misdiagnosed your medical X-ray, or the only real place you will find an affordable bereavement group around reaches the local veterinarians office… lets deal with it. You almost certainly Don’t need therapy. You will need a vacation. And why should YOU be exempt from exactly the same hellish frustrations that the remainder folks are coping with every day? I can’t think of certainly one of my clients or friends that isn’t FILLED to the brim with credible, viable, justifiable reasons to be good and PISSED off all the time. As 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 within our DNA to put on any more agitation than many of us are driven to on a regular basis even when we’re being angels… my suggestion is to obtain back into our power and understand that WE have reached choice. I didn’t share my thoughts here to create more drama. I shared them to verify you’re not the only one on the market finding it easier to love animals a lot more than people, just in case you thought you were what fans love. There are many of us. However, do not WEAR your rage such as for instance a badge… learn to bask inside for some time, and see it for what it truly is. It doesn’t own you until you let it. Your day will go which ever way you decide 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 in the long run, lets keep things in perspective shall we? You’re responsible for you. And we all have an awful lot to be grateful for.
As a therapeutic suggestion, perhaps read an uplifting book when you become bed.. tune in to your yoga teacher, have a green tea… punch your pillow out… but be grateful you’re still breathing and have the ability to vent. Strive to accomplish a little better… Really. Be greater person, love humankind on whatever level you are able to muster in the minute notwithstanding all it’s shortcomings… There are always a large amount of exceptional humans on the market covertly blessing the world. Don’t waste more of your precious energy being pissed off than you’ll need to. Remember, everything you concentrate on expands, so, plug yourself into something worthwhile and of course… be kind to animals. Wait a moment? I think I simply catapulted into my higher self…
