Unloving Habits
Published by Lorena Lucille on December 17, 2009 9:00pm.  Category: Self Observation

I have noticed several times over the last couple of years that I will respond lovingly to a person who is being unloving, mean, or disrespectful.  However, I don't realized until later that the person was intending to be mean. 


 


First, I think I should have said this or that in retort instead of that kindness!


 


Second, I think Why do I want to have responded unlovingly?  I am moving in Love automatically.  That's what I want.


 


It is an illustration of how a lifetime of unloving habits is a tool used by the ego to preserve itself.

ayadewA next step could be to become the other person, really feel why that person wanted to be mean.
I feel this technique can be applied to all situations which are 'negative'.

Lorena LucilleEverybody has his or her reasons to act the way he/she does. How many times are we misunderstood or thought, 'I really HAD to change lanes at the time, sorry.' It's more spiritually skillful to assume we just aren't privy to the causes behind someone's actions. And an extra boon if that understanding comes naturally and not because of logical analysis.
