Simply understand that you do not understand. Many things become known when we open up to this truth. We can never know what someone else is going through or why they are acting the way they are. Look at all the wrong things people do under the pretense of understanding. When we can admit that we do not understand instead of creating a story in our own mind about why things are happening the way they are, then we can begin to attract the light of insight. We have become too attached to what we think we know and understand; from here, the door of intuition is closed and receiving insights of real understanding rarely happen.
How do you know if you really understand something? You can feel it in your body. This is not about going up into the mind. We must connect with the body and go down into the heart. There is no judgment, anger or retaliation and you will feel the truth through empathy, love and kindness. Know that until you know your understanding is not fixed it will change. This is why you always want to be in a state of not understanding. Do not be deceived by THINKING that you understand because your mind will tell you that you do.
Please know that we live in a world that is full of empathy, love and kindness. Look for this, focus on it and do not put your attention on the negative. Now I am not telling you to ignore what you see but you do not have to put all your attention on it. This will only make you fearful, sad and depressed. We choose the path we walk and so it is up to you. Remember to understand yourself first and then you will understand others. If we allow ourselves to go up into the mind and we listen to the carefully woven story that it creates, we lose touch with our body and the True-Self, then we react from the story instead of responding from truth. Know that our spiritual path is a journey of ever-deepening honesty with oneself. In addition, you get to choose how you respond to each moment. What will you choose today?
