Do you notice everyone is doing their own things all the time, and yet what they are doing does not cross the path of another? It is as if there are numerous circuits moving around on earth yet there is no one circuit that criss crosses with another. Yes, you may say there are many a times when an action of someone has an impact on another’s life and because of that the direction of what should be is shifted. But this meaning could only occur with and when our limiting way of looking at things comes from should and should not. There is a bigger Balance that none of us can see and we always have the meaning that “if only things should have been otherwise” – yet, that is a lie – delusional, if I may add, as “should be” is only an engagement of thoughts, of war within, and not what truly happened.
Would it not be wise to point out that when one is affected by what is outside, it is the inside that is causing that inner discomfort, and not vice versa. We are all actors having people around us as crews. And these crews too are actors in their own rights having people around them as their crews too. There is a splendid numbers of movies being scripted at all within one moment, at one place, at one time, to each their own. We are all living in our own world of our consciousness, our own perception, our own feelings and our own imagination. We thought we are all communicating with each other. But the truth is that we are only communicating with ourselves. On the level of form, our conceptual communication is real and tangible but when we get closer to reality we are being awakened to the reality that we are all living a dream of our own, albeit unknowingly.
We have never communicated with anyone. When we hear something from outside, what is within each of us – our own conditioning of ideas and views – meet what is out there and the process of assimilation within takes place. Hence when the mind is ignorant, what it process comes from ignorant and results in an experience of ignorance. Where and when there is wisdom, what is being processed comes from the space of vastness and openness as wisdom has that potential of expanding further what is already there. Ignorance only has the nature of seeing things narrowly and hence constantly missing the mark of what is exactly potentially awaiting.
Thus in truth we are not criss crossing another’s path; rather we are merely a catalyst of triggering what is within another – for if there is a cleaning slate within another, trigger meaning becomes meaningless. We can figuratively speak that our presence in another’s life serve as an awakening or of a deeper slumber, depending whether ignorance or wisdom is present in that person at that point in time. On the same note, people around us are also potential for us to grow or to stay stagnant. When we see this truth, life becomes more meaningful as it is no longer about getting more or getting somewhere but rather here in the now of what is being experienced for undoing to take place, for forgiveness to release what we are still holding on to, for wisening up to Truth.
