The eyes reflect what the heart tries to hide,
Your thoughts won’t contain, although you fight,
Your concern for how I should fly my kite,
Is eating up the moments before your eyes.
Life is but a moment depleted,
So why focus on someone else’s misses?
Time is only moving forward,
Why not focus on your journey?
There are no secrets in life. A sincere smile shows a sincere heart. It reflects that a person has no qualms about what someone did or ought to do.
The words spoken behind someone’s back, a negative thought or dislikes cannot be hidden with a smile or a gesture.
It all shows.
There’s no magic about it. What you think of someone will show with your smile. What you told of someone will show through the one that you told it to.
Call it energy, vibes, juju … it’s all ways of how someone’s perception of another manifests and how the receptor experiences it.
Perhaps one solution is to not concern so much about other people’s lived experiences. Curiosity has a place. When curiosity becomes an obsession over what someone else is doing, you forget to live the very short life you have. Now you are not only meddling with the limited moments another has to experience life, but also wasting your own, on futile analyzations.
Ever wonder why faith causes so many problems in the world? It’s not so much the teachings of a faith but the application and interpretation of it that cause issues. Often times the application of faith is blatantly hypocritical when compared to the teachings.
Devotees are so concerned of how someone else is living their life that they feel the need to take on the role of a deity. Or, do they feel as if everyone must agree with exactly what they perceive to be correct in their minds? I don’t see an issue with someone’s firm belief that what they believe is right. However, when you impose that onto people and derive moral authority it becomes a problem. Spiritual practices do not have measurements or evaluation procedures. That leaves room for all sorts of things. If you can’t accept another human being based on their merits, I don’t mean the standards that you uphold to be worthy but simply for who they are, perhaps you need to reevaluate your faith.
Is it a spiritual practice at that point? Or is it a crutch that you need to define who you are in terms of who someone else is?
Part of the issue lies in hierarchical view points that dominate our society. Whether we like to admit or not, modern society in general, still operates under the pretense of importance that people attach to professions, qualifications and achievements. So instead of seeing the most obvious oneness, we are programmed to compare, dissect and position ourselves in relation to those we meet.
Ever thought what a human would look like to an alien? At a glance, an extra terrestrial would categorize animals based on their common characteristics. And all humans, regardless of color, race, gender or qualifications will be categorized under one generic umbrella.
If we need faith to feel good about ourselves in relation to another, I see very little value in that. A spiritual practice, first and foremost should nourish and sustain the individual practitioner. Next, it should create harmony and unity with everything around them. It should dissolve and dismantle illogical untruths that one accumulate as they grow up in a world with conflicting opinions and ideas. Of course one person’s practice alone won’t be able to make it happen. However, when someone is able to be comfortable in their skin, they will know how to deflect disagreements. When logic and reasoning cannot exist without conflict, silence is the answer.
At the end, truth shouldn’t require any justification. If it requires persuasion, think twice. If something is so true, wouldn’t it be undeniable obvious? Wouldn’t it be inescapably comprehensible? Is it fair for some individuals to understand it and not others, if something is true? Or is truth like mathematics? If so, wouldn’t it be math and not the truth? Can truth be relative? If that’s the case, what’s the point of enforcing laws?
