We are Hurting Each Other
Like most everyone else, I have been watching all the happenings lately surrounding the U.S. election for President of the United States.
After actively, and even aggressively, following every minute event regarding the election process, I began to truly notice all the vitriol that was being spewed toward those with differing points of view, and it was coming from both “sides”.
I had switched “sides” myself a while back because I was convinced that my new group of choice, was not a hateful group, but instead was compassionate and only wanted the Highest Good for All.
Well, I have discovered that I was wrong. Yes, this new “group” seems to be on the side of Love and also looks toward our future with a positive mindset, however there are still many in the group who behave obnoxiously and vehemently, toward those in the other group.
I was hoping that given how often the word Love is used within my group’s discussions, that they would “practice” that Love outwardly also, when addressing those who do not agree with them.
Now, I am not saying that one needs to be using “lovey-dovey” words with others who disagree with you, however I cannot think of one “good” reason where using words that are hateful, degrading, and very personal in nature, can help the ultimate “cause” for Good, in any way, shape or form. In fact, I believe that those negative words actually hurt one’s cause, and can result in irreparable damage.
Case in point...think back in your own life to a time when someone else called you a “name” that bothered you greatly inside, and even hurt. Did that experience cause you to like that person more? Did you feel Love for that person because they called you a hurtful name? Were you more open to hearing more about that person’s opinions and perspectives?...on any topic?
My guess is that you would be answering “no” to those questions. I know my answer would have been “no”.
However, don’t we, as a spiritual collective for humanity, experience those earlier “lessons” so that we won’t repeat them later on, and use them to then hurt someone else? Aren’t we supposed to be better than those who hurt us, or are we just going to spend the rest of our lives here on earth, continuing to “teach others a lesson” just because you had to experience that very hard, humiliating, lesson?
I have personally lived a very tumultuous life...as many others have also. However, I like to think that I have learned from those emotionally hard experiences, and I do not wish to inflict those painful feelings on anyone else, even my worst enemy, during the rest of my time here, because I can acutely remember just how much it hurt me. Why do we need more hate in the world?
So, since I can’t cause anyone else to effect change in their life if they don’t truly wish to, the only thing I can do right now, is to send Love to all those who are hurting others because they also were once hurt, themselves.
I do believe, with all of my heart and soul, that sending Love to others helps, in a collective sense, and I will continue to do so for as long as I live...and I would love it if others would join me in this offering...and maybe, just maybe, we could shower all of humanity, with Love. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful feeling for all?
Blessings upon each and every one of you! Love and Light, Losha.
