Become Blind

become_blind

If I see someone’s weakness it is as if the soul becomes infected.

My vision will focus on that weakness as the basis of their personality. Then everything else that follows – my thoughts, words, actions and feelings – will be coloured by that.

They are the ones with a weakness and yet it is me who creates and holds the waste thoughts and negative feelings within the self. I then nurture these types of thoughts of feelings by re-asserting the existence of the weakness. I ‘feed off it’ and thus enable it to grow and set up home within the self.

Whether they are right or wrong, doing something good or bad, why should that control the thoughts and feelings that I experience?

I need to make myself blind to the weaknesses of others, not just to be able to maintain healthy relationships, but
to protect my own inner self from being ‘infected’ and infectious.

Don’t become ‘infected’, become blind to the weaknesses of others.

 

Om Shanti

Relationships

Relationships are such a central part of our lives. The happiness they give is reflected in the quality of the lives we live.
They can also be a very clear mirror for us in seeing what is lacking within the self.

When we interact with others we often focus on and magnify the things that are wrong with them. Seeing just one defect in another often causes us to change our manner of interacting within a second; with our speech, attitude and actions. We immediately stand up and challenge their defect with our own weakness. What we do is to allow the defects of another to make us forget our own virtues.

People have many virtues but often we focus on their one defect. It takes time and practice to change this. But the key is, even on seeing their weaknesses, to hold on to your own virtues and use them. The nature to ‘challenge’ within relationships has been the cause of much sorrow and it inspires the vices to take control.

There is no need to challenge the weaknesses in others. Recognise your virtues and use them.

Om Shanti
