“Know that people are doing the best they can from their level of awareness. Accept people for who they are and always be ready to forgive.”
Another great reminder to those on a spiritual journey.
I often get frustrated with humanity. The incessant judgement, the shallow conversations, and the unneeded cruelness. The way that people talk to and about each other. I am even a part of this, I will admit. But I do try. The fact is- everyone is on a different level of awareness. The key to compassion through frustration and annoyance is to understand that. Forgive easily- do not let ego hold you back from loving. I have a tendency to want to cut those out of my life that bring negativity. But the truth is, everyone is going to bring it at some point because it is your own self reacting to it. Forgive them for evoking it, forgive yourself for providing the mirror, and move on from it. There are lessons to learn from everyone and that is from every level or awareness, not just the one you are on or ones seemingly higher than yours. Accept and love.
I am going to put this into action immediately: to be more tolerant and understanding and loving.
