…resentment and criticism and blame on any level does not pave the way for beauty. It does not pave the way for love. It does not pave the way for compassion. It does not pave the way for forgiveness. And the world is desperately in need of forgiveness. The world is desperately in need of compassion and love.
We have to be willing to look at through other people’s eyes to actually release that judgment. The world doesn’t more judgment. It doesn’t need more criticism. You know I get… it’s easy to stay inside a box and it’s easy to look at and say that they are doing something wrong… that they shouldn’t be doing it that way whether it’s person to person… whether it’s Hollywood celebrities or whether it’s country to country with how they’re warring. It’s easy to look at and do that and then stay within our box and not make changes here.
Criticism and blame the moment we do that, we cut ourselves off from the answer because we say that… it’s all over there within and in that same breath, the moment, the moment we’re criticizing whether it’s our partner or whether it is what someone else is doing out there that we don’t know. The moment we criticize and that same breath we say that I’m okay. ‘Coz when we criticize another person we feel better about who we are. It’s a bit of a bullshit feeling better really.
We need to be able to walk in someone else’s shoes. We need to be able to see out from someone’s eyes because when we do that… when we have the ability and the courage and the willingness to do, we can say that you know… they are doing what they’re doing because of how they’ve been experiencing their life.
They’re responding given the world that they are living in… when we do that we can have compassion for where they’re coming from. And that is compassion. It is absolutely compassion that the world needs more off.
Everyone is stuck in the story of why they’re doing what they’re doing… whether it’s a relationship between a husband and a wife and these difficulties between the husband the wife… and they are criticizing the other person’s why they are not showing up in the way that they’re expecting them to.
Have you noticed how it’s easier to have way higher expectations for someone else then we actually do for ourselves? See, in that situation of that relationship… that marriage… having the high expectations for the other person and criticizing them and saying that they are supposed to be doing this a certain way and without actually really looking at it from your eyes and saying…. how’s the world showing up to them… how much I showing up to them. What are the circumstances that have been through in their life that’s having them be that way.
See, I believe that everyone is doing the piece that they have with what they’ve got. Like imagine if we actually looked out in the world and we really sort from that point of view… we really own the fact that people are doing the best with what they have even if they’re doing things that seems so heinous. What would that give access to…
A friend of mine, a woman from Australia who is a head and enlightened experience through when she was being right. She was lying on the ground being right, about to be murdered and she had this moment we are she looked at him and she said I forgive you. And in that moment, he clearly shocked said—Oh my God! I’m killing an angel, and he stopped. He later said that he was going to kill you and he realized how could he kill one of the angels of God.
Now, I don’t know what happened to you in this experience I had. I can’t even pretend to understand that experience for her but what I do know is that, there was some way she was able to see a greater grander picture of what was happening and to even see that he was, hey, in that moment, was possibly doing the best that he could with what he had and that might even my upset people. I can just imagine people typing right now have comments on this—No! How can you say that.
I just think that resentment and criticism and blame on any level does not pave the way for beauty. It does not pave the way for love. It does not pave the way for compassion. It does not pave the way for forgiveness. And the world is desperately in need of forgiveness. The world is desperately in need of compassion and love.
If you’re listening to this video, I don’t know what’s stirring in you, whether it’s stirring frustration or anger and it could well do or whether it’s stirring in you in the area of your life that you’ve been really holding into some kind of resentment, I invite you to look not just on your own eyes, on your own angle or your own frustrations of this moment, of this experience but to actually look at it and have the courage and the willingness ’cause it takes courage and willingness to look at it from the other person’s point of view. Where are they coming from that this is so, how they are just showing up and takes courage to tell you what is no point looking out into the world and thinking that the world needs to change. If we’re not willing to make the shifts in here. Have the courage!
