Try your best to be an observer to everything thats going on around you.
Try to look at everything objectively and view things from every perspective that exist in all of that situation. Can you see the bigger picture
without letting your personal emotions like anger, jelousy, or love blind you? Can you see whats really going on? Its not easy. Dont try to tackle
it head on or you will fail. There is a way to make it easier. The key is to have understanding. Forget about yourself and try to see everyone's
view, what they might be going through or feeling, and try to understand why they are doing what they are doing.
When somone is doing something that you agree with, its easy to understand what they are doing, isnt it? Try to see yourself in other people... The
more hardships you go through and mistakes you make, the easier it is to have compassion and understanding with others.
When you make a mistake, allways except it, and try your best to prevent it from happening again. This is not a weakness, this is STRENGTH.
Only you can decide if you made a mistake or not. Do you feel bad for something that you did/said? This is you telling yourself that it was
What one says is wrong another would say is good and that is ok.
Or do you feel bad because of what somone eles did because of you?
This is somone eles trying to control you and make you feel responsible, you are not responsible for what other people do!
You cannot control other people but, if you know you are responsible and feel bad, then you should consider what you did and if you truly were
responsible. If you detach your personal feelings, you will start to feel good or bad depending on how you deal with situations and people. Allways
listen and go by these feelings. Try to put your personal feelings aside and detach yourself, and allow yourself to see why this person is acting in
such a way. The truth is important, if you can find the truth in all things then you can never be controlled or told what to do.
Even the people that no matter how hard you try, do not have a shred of yourself in them. Understand that these people do not know what they do.
Its all about how you really feel, deep down, about how you handle life. How are we suppose to feel bad or good, unless we do these things? That is
why, when somone is doing something I think is wrong, I would understand that they do not know what they do... People have a tendancy to learn slow
and keep repeating the same thing over and over until they learn. How can you learn if you are unwilling to search to the root of your feelings or
even acknowledge them.
Its very important to have an outlet for your anger and other unwanted personal emotions. I find that writing down how I feel and whats bothering me,
really helps me get it outta my system. It needs to come out, try to think of a way to bring it out that you dont feel bad about after.
Come back after 2 or 3 days, when your feeling better and more objective and read what you put down and write down a reason for why this has happend
and if you dont know, do some investigation with a clear head.
"Allways act in such a way that you will feel good about, and that is following your truth"
If you ask yourself why you feel bad for somone who has hurt you, you are a good person and dont allow yourself to stoop to a low level. If you feel
bad, it must be wrong. Don't ignore these feelings. These are your markers around life and your way to the truth.
Dont go by what other people say, this is ignorant and you might not have the same view as this other person. But they will skew their opinion in a
way that you will beleive it.
Find out the whole story with an objective mind.
There are so many aspects of this and its such an individual thing. Dont hide behind your ways or your mistakes, if your doing this, thats a good
sign that what your doing is wrong and you know it. I'm not saying to go out a expose yourself, nor am I saying to go out and lie either. Im only
saying that you should listen to how things make you feel. There is no consciousness without conscience.
Dont ignore your conscience, those bad feelings are there to tell us that what were doing needs to stop. Once we stop and do things that make us feel
good in a way that our heart sings(consciousness)we will feel complete and we will fill that void that we all trying to fill with money, sex,
materials, war, ect. You can never fill that void with these things. You will still feel bad/empty and not know why.
The illusion is there to trick you into thinking that ignoring your conscience
and following your own personal feelings are going to make you feel good and complete, that is an illusion.(false) The only reason for having people
think this would be for control, which is an illusion too. This would cause a person to stop evolving.
Do not give in... and you will not be giving into the illusion.(dont sell out)
If you listen to your conscience and ignore your personal feelings, you will discover many things about who you are. Things will start to make sense
that didn't before. You will begin to see the illusion and the truth. Many things will happen and you will gain abilties and feel very good and
important, everyone is. You will feel fuller and it will be alot easier to detach from the things that you so feverantly hang onto now. Only
important things will matter at this point and you will continue to evolve.
