It sometimes seems as though we sometimes get sidetracked from our own “paths” and start looking around to see if others are going forward… are doing their lessons… this is when we all get into trouble… we get sidelined…it is only when we are totally interested in learning our own lessons in life and are not attached in the slightest whether or not other people learn their lessons is when we can achieve our own individual realization.
I don’t think it is out of judgment that we start getting sidetracked… it is usually out of concern. But… we have to realize that each person does his/her own path according to their free-will choices. It isn’t up to us to decide for another person (unless asked, of course)….
The true test of this will come when we are in conflict with another person. The negative ego will want to teach that person a lesson. The negative ego cannot imagine not striking back and giving that person a piece of their mind. The negative ego cannot imagine being attacked and remaining silent. The negative ego cannot imagine turning the other cheek and just giving unconditional love. However, you are not your negative ego…. You are your higher self. So choose… higher road or lower road…
Summing up this morning… nope, it isn’t up to us whether others learn their lessons…it really isn’t our business…….. we really all have quite a bit to do just doing our own….
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, think I smell coffee a’brewing….. Close your eyes, take a deep breath… smell it??????
