Do you have someone in your life who constantly presses your buttons?
Are you in conflict with some-one at the moment?
Does the state of the planet and the world around you disrupt your peace?
Who currently 'holds' your experience of peace in their hands?
Them or you?
Ok enough questions... but are you getting my gist? (Another question!)
On my recent survey, one of the main general causes for suffering in many of your lives was to do with 'the other'!
My boss, my partner, my family, the world, the government, those power hungry people! They have robbed me of my peace! Call the karma police!
Sometimes it seems that someone else is the cause of stress and discomfort in our lives.
I've tried to blame others in the past too. "Damn them why can't they just grow up, or shut up, or stop being rude, annoying and mean... then I can be happy and at peace".
However, this victim approach, seemed to keep attracting more and more of the same annoying and mean people into my life. "Oh poor me" I would say, "It's not fair!".
My life completely transformed when I decided to take full 100% responsibility for how I was feeling.
I realised that the deeply held pain, unresolved anger and violin playing unworthiness that was shoved into my socks while I was attempting to be cool with everything... it was a HUGE magnet for mean people to treat me unfairly and even lovely people to take advantage of me.
It was like I had an energetic neon sign above my head beaming... judge me, abuse me and blame me, I deserve it.
More importantly it caused me to see the world in general as mean and to be oversensitive and defensive to certain behaviours and treatment. Blame made the emotional buttons get bigger!
Oh dear time to face my emotions!
This realisation empowered me to finally discover peace within and not to look for it in my relationships and my circumstances.
All I needed to do was to face the emotional baggage that was being triggered instead of try and shove it back down and point the finger in blame.
I learned to see my highly charged reaction to any unfairness in others and in the world as a reflective mirror of what was unresolved within me.
The magical hologram of life... it is completely liberating to discover.
Of course I still see destructive behaviour in the world but I am less likely to take it personally or allow it to effect me deeply. It can only create waves on the surface of the deep calm peaceful ocean of who I am.
We are human and while in this body we will always be ruffled on the surface by life. Especially if you, like me, have an empathic nature and feel the world around you deeply.
True peace comes from listening to and letting go of pain so that we can see the present moment with pure innocent and loving eyes.
I personally couldn't manage to access my deep pain alone. I fluffed around for years trying on my own but would get restless and distract myself from going deep. I needed to work with experienced practitioners and powerful masters to get to the core.
So in my humble opinion I would say, don't waste your time blaming others and the state of the world... it traps you in a cycle of blah! Instead face the emotions that are being triggered and follow them to the core of peace.
