We are all the same when it comes to our emotions and our range of reactions to those emotions. We are all baptized by the fires of life as we live and have our spirits refined by it. It becomes a matter of whether we want to see others as monsters or as people and they will view us the same in turn. Not right away, because people become cemented in their paths and lines of thinking and it takes effort and is often painful to yourself to help them through it. This is always true, though not always easy to see for what people have made of the world. You have to take into account that what other people give you is their own projection and not just an echo toward you or your choices. There are echoes and then there are reactions, but the echoes are stronger. The way our minds work may be different, but we tend to come to the same results as others regardless when it comes down to the results. This shows similarities in how we think even if we don’t fully understand it. We only remain different due to our influences in life as we grow and to understand that is to understand that you are no more or less than each of those people out there still lost and confused; in fact it sounds like you might still be lost and confused, yourself. You’d be any single one of them if you had lived their life; because they became what they became personality-wise based on their influences and their own individual talents. Your talents could raise you to the same heights, but with your own flavor. When someones perception is negative, you have to work harder to break through it with love so they can see the value and strength of it. All of life is a fight and equal for all people. It becomes how you go about facing that fight. ~ Christopher Brown
What you hate in others often exists in yourself. Those that don’t agree need to take a closer look. I had to and its not very pretty. ~ Paddy Barrett
We are all mirrors, some mirrors are clear and clean and some are foggy and mat. Try to meditate on this and discover the truth for yourself.
