There is a system behind life, it’s really simple. We have access to wisdom within all of us. Our well being isn’t dependent on anything outside of us. Our thoughts come and go and they fluctuate, we don’t need to pay attention to them. Our consciousness, which is our understanding, goes up and down. The more we understand, the less frustrated we are. When there’s a lack of understanding ie when we don’t know why a person is behaving the way they do, then we feel the need to defend ourselves.
As our understanding grows we understand where people are coming from. We can see that they think their circumstances are causing them to feel the way they do. When we see that, it brings compassion rather than judging people for being in a bad place. We have compassion and understanding why their experience is happening that way. Now there’s a light that’s being shone not just on your own but on other people’s experience too. A light of awareness. The only thing that covers up that light is personal thinking, that identification with who we think we are, which essentially is our ego.
