We set expectations and boundaries we expect other to keep and when they don’t we are hurt. The hurt we experience every day are the direct result of our own illusions we expect others to adhere to. No use in handing someone your entire existence and letting them take all they want, and then getting upset and hurt when they can’t appreciate who you are and toss you aside when they drank their fill.
When we make friends or are in love we become greedy and want to possess the other person, demanding more and more form them until they feel caged, and fight back. Then we wonder why….
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:1-13)
But what do we do, the opposite, and then we run around crying when the negative love we give others make them turn away from us.
This Bible verse has been in my mind for 2 months now:
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:1-13)
It is a verse I have treasured my entire life. This to me is how love should be, this is how I try to live my life. Through kindness, understanding and more; in my life I look at people and I see all of them, see how many is souls in pain lashing out at those around them, with their negative attitude their lies, the anger they direct at those they deem Unfit and unworthy. Wanting to punish, and make them do as they want….
That is not how I live my life, that is not who I am… I see the lies in people’s words, mostly they lie to themselves, I see the energy on their profiles and the energy they throw at others, but…
That is their life and their choices of being, if you want to hide behind a mask, which is a choice you make, I will not call you out on it. If you want to hide behind 20 different profiles in order to say “you can’t even see it” That is your choice.
So many times I talk to people and they tell me stuff and I look at them and wonder if they realise just how they lie to themselves and now to me. But it’s not my place to beat them up about it, life is about choices, and we are all learning the hard way here. Life is about love, and if someone’s illusions don’t work for me I smile and set up a shield. One day they will decide to remove that mask, but that is their place to decide.
In the last 6 months I stopped scanning peoples energy stopped scanning profiles, for one reason, Life is theirs to live, if they want to hide behind masks it’s their choice, if they want to create a lot of profiles, that is fine too. I love them enough to know that one day they will realise more than they do now and I am ok with that.
Love is more than us, and once we can be in peace in our centre, the world with their masks and illusions become visible.
