I'm finding social media more and more difficult to digest--unless it comes to me as an empowering and nurturing spirit.
Pay attention. If you are imposing or forcing your will and preferences on others, physically or otherwise, you'll never move forward in ANY formidable way. That's what I'm told. Anger, jealousy, judgement, frustration, pain, and suffering are ALL reserved only for those who are awaiting their own personal karma.
You will get everything you want. Then, you'll pay for it by experiencing your willed imbalance to the universe by feeling. So, it is easy for me to hope and pray the everyone gets whatever they want.
To those who feel a desire to ask others to give of themselves more than they feel comfortable doing, they will do so by holding that imposed karma until there comes a point in your life when you can handle its return. If the view looking back, over your shoulder is broader than what you see in front of you, I beg you to stop and figure out the cause of your blindness before things get worse. At some point, you'll realize you've been digging; that's why you can't see forward. Change your direction, or you'll end up begging for someone to throw the dirt back on top of you.
I, personally, would give my own eyes in exchange for others to see their own power to create, in others, the pain we feel when we search our own hearts. The hell I have been through hasn't been "other people" as many others perceive JeanPaul Sartre's words. What he meant was more aligned to what I explained: our Hell is the vision of the pain each of us has created, displayed in the eyes of others around us.
Once I stopped speaking and typing to others, I finally heard something--myself. Afterwards, my guilt and penance drove me to sacrifice. After forgiving myself BY welcoming judgment and karma upon myself from my past, I found peace.
How do I DEFINE peace, you ask? Easy. MY peace came when I ended my life, happily. At a specific moment in my life, recently, I was able to kill my "self." I was able to destroy the idea that I COULD be alone and have privacy. I stopped WANTING privacy--in my conscious and subconscious thoughts, words, and actions. I stopped expecting or wanting others to weigh themselves down with anything about me. That's when I finally felt, almost exactly, what I have seen in the eyes of others in my life. I found clarity in exchange for confusion and frustration. I asked for it, so I got it. Thanks be to God, I survived.
Now, the only thing that makes me uncomfortable is watching others impose their judgment/will/preferences/etc. on others. Whenever I see one person who even LETS anyone even perceive their words, thoughts, or actions as harmful to others, I stop and pray for your survival. God help you if you allow your own pain to be felt by others--even if they are wrong or "evil." Spoiler alert: you may have to redefine "help," depending on your attitude. God's help towards spiteful attitudes are rarely matched by our human strength or resilience. It's not your job to judge others, only His.
The only thing that matters to me, now, is knowing that I don't have to hurt or judge others anymore. My life is only equal to the amount of light I can bring to others. I owe nothing, which allows me to give everything. My Heaven lies in knowing my point of balance. Knowing balance is the only way I will be able to truly "see" the direction I need to shine my light.
