Not knowing, they assume … thinking they know better than the experiencer, they become judgmental and cruel, lacking awareness that their behavior, which is based on ‘lack of knowing’, causes them to spew negativity.
So it is in the world.
Only when there is an awareness of how an individuals own actions and words affect the whole, and a conscious choice is made to be more kind, will things shift.
Fortunately, many people are doing just this.
Good people, who are adored and respected, admired for their successes, have this habit of judging without full knowledge. Some call it ‘leadership skills’.
Stepping back and simply observing, however, one begins to see the constant barrage of negativity coming from mouths. Good intentions, mixed with lack of empathy, really do no one any good. The ‘I know better than you’ mentality, I believe, is partially responsible for the state we now find ourselves in.
It takes a lot of courage, back bone, and a strong will to step away from this, and firmly plant the feet in our own awareness, moving forward as we know is best for us in any given moment, in a wide set of circumstances.
You know best … you know whether it is beneficial to your present ‘beingness’ and those who your life is touching. You know. You are much wiser than, perhaps, you have let yourself believe. Deep within you is an abundant flow of advice. No words are spoken there, yet the information comes through just the same.
Allow yourself the freedom to be YOU. In kindness love grows. In pain compassion is multiplied. An understanding is gained through your experiences which will benefit others.
Be gentle. The world needs gentleness. A healing must take place and it begins in your own mind. Nurture yourself with positive thought and affirmation. When you understand how wonderful you are, you will begin to see this sameness in those you see around you. Even when they are cruel … for truly, they do not know what they do.
