Every single one of us is fighting some sort of battle in our lives. Whether it’s with another person, within our own hearts, or just within a situation in our lives. Not one of us is any better or any worse than somebody else.
With that said, I think if we all just offered one another some basic human kindness, there would be a lot less fighting and a lot more love. I’ve offered 3 easy things you can do that truly can a cause a ripple of love on this planet.
1. Be more compassionate. The important thing to remember about compassion is that it’s not just about feeling sorry for another person. It’s about doing something that can help relieve somebody’s suffering. It’s not about taking pity on someone, but rather allowing that emotional stirring within you to motivate you to take action. Even if that action is just understanding, kindness, and a prayer. When we can have compassion for others, ultimately, it brings us all together and allows us to recognize that we all are truly ONE.
2. Be more patient. In this technological age, everybody is so used to getting what they want within one touch of a button, that they forget that humans aren’t machines. We can’t expect one another to just get over something within an instant, or do what we want as soon as we desire it, or for people to even be who we want them to be because we need something from them right then and there. When we realize that we all have stuff that we are working through and that we wouldn’t want someone to rush us through our emotions, then we can give others the same patience and respect that we would want. Allow people their own time and their own space to process their own lives, so that eventually they can show up in the world happy with who they are. Pay attention to your life and allow others to pay attention to theirs. Be patient not only with others, but especially with yourself.
3. Be more understanding. If we all would just take the time to listen to one another and try to understand where they are coming from, then we’d be able to let go of our grievances a little easier. We’d be able to forgive easier, love easier, and respond more kindly. I know it’s difficult at times when someone isn’t being the nicest to us, however, if we just take the time to understand that perhaps there is something that is going on in their lives that is making them a bit edgier, angrier, or short-tempered. There isn’t one of us that hasn’t reacted poorly in a situation and all we wanted was for someone to just let us off the hook by understanding us a bit more.
At the end of the day, we all desire love so much and some people just don’t know how to simply say that they are hurting, they need to be loved, they are feeling ignored , or they simply could use a hug. The truth is, because so many don’t know how to express this, they end up acting out in ways that aren’t always so “enlightened” because they are disappointed and frustrated that they aren’t getting what they need. We all have and have had rough times and all we have wanted is someone there to be more compassionate, more patient, and more understanding.
Let’s try to do that with others and you will see how what you put out there comes right back to you. This world can be tough at times from things outside of our control, but what is in our control, is the way we treat, react, and love others. We are spiritual beings having a human experience here and it’s time we start BEing and acting like the loving beings that we are. If we can do that, this planet truly will be altered and there will be a lot more joyful and loving beings walking through this world.
