Each soul that incarnates has its own destiny, no two are alike. We hold within our personal blueprint, the map showing the way to the signposted moments, places, meetings and events that are intended to trigger choices pushing us further along the trail towards who knows where and who knows what, but what is assured is an adventure that by itself causes the soul’s growth.
We are born into a set of predetermined circumstances that serve to provide the early lessons we wish to learn about ideals and values, often known as tradition, or “our lot in life,” basically family and ancestral karma which we then have the choice to submit to or break free from. First we must recognise that there is actually a choice.
From the outside looking in we can easily judge another, rightly or wrongly, because they appear to be different in some way from us, not necessary at first glance, I’m not talking about race, age, size, gender etc, I’m speaking more to the way people behave and to those values and ideals they hold dear. One person might value wealth and worldly status as a measure of their success and another might value family and friendship.
We must seek always to understand what drives another, what they value and why they have chosen the path they have. When we stand in judgement of them we project our own conditioning and belief system upon them and inadvertently diminish their worth in our own eyes.
When you seek always to understand, you open your heart fully to new information, you ask questions and take on the mantle of the Seeker, you open to hearing the truth of another and to discovering where your similarities lie. When you seek always to understand, you give the gift of respect because you honour first the unique soul and its chosen path, which may not be what you think it is. Their choices may not be what you think they are and their hopes, dreams and intentions may not be what you assume… The more open you allow yourself to be in search of understanding, the more open they are likely to be in sharing their vision with you… and the more surprised you might become by what you find. You never know, you might even have the same mission in mind… after all, that soul that incarnated with a blueprint holding the map to the signposted moments, places, meetings and events, just like yours, drew you together to learn something…
How will you do that if you already believe you know everything you need to about the miracle that stands before you?
Seek always to understand.
More later… x
