I believe it is you and I who can find the deeper joys and meaning to life, true enlightenment if you will, when we respond from a place of neutrality or better yet LOVE, when confronted/challenged/tested by someone rejecting us, hurting us, pushing our buttons, etc. In these situations, the other person is not the adversary/enemy; our responding to situations where there is a lack of light in kind with anger, hatred, intolerance, etc. is the true adversary/enemy because this perspective keeps us from realizing our true nature, which is love and light.
So when you bump up against icky sticky confrontation, realize that you have the power to turn the exchange into one which you literally "rise above the situation". We've all heard that phrase, right?
Will you slip and fall along the way? Sure, but that's okay, too. I totally lost it this-past week and "made a mountain out of a mole hill". Should you or I look back at the way we've handled these situations in the past and beat ourselves up? Never!
Realize that when you look back on a situation and judge your actions/reactions you are literally judging someone else ... someone who didn't have the foresight to know the consequences of that reaction, as you now do. Learn from these mis-takes in the movie of your life and on the next take you'll hear "That's a wrap!"
