Ignorance in hurting people


 

 

Often we are not aware when we hurt someone
For we are so much busy with ourselves, not seeing
That our reaction has a hurting content
As a motto: “I come first…”

We are fast with prejudices
See things on the level of our ego
Too proud to admit when mistakes made
Leave the hurt one alone: “Not my business…”

There is fear to face the truth
That we were wrong, ego-oriented?
A chess-player cannot just see his own chess pieces
Needs to step into each other’s shoes

Only then we learn the “moves” of the other
Better to understand, better to react
Instead of adopting the position: “I do not care…”
So also no reactions – can hurt…

These thoughts packed in silence
Are like an arrow shot into the other’s heart…

  1. I really like the comparison you make to the chess player! It’s so true, you really need to put in the other person’s shoes and try to understand where they are coming from, and to listen to their hearts and the words that are not spoken.
    Each person is a micro-cosmos with their own feelings, fears, culture, and beliefs but we are all of the same essence, so let us find our common ground and celebrate our differences! In Oneness, Amira ❤ ❤ ❤

    • Thank you so much, my dear Amira for your great contribution respectively comment 🙂

      …yes and celebrate the difference in Oneness, the drops in the Ocean where we are all connected. The consciousness that we all feel: “to be” has the same source – we feel only disconnected due to our ego and mind – if we could remove this veil even for a moment, we would see and understand that we all are One.

      Thank you very much, dear Amira 🙂
      From heart to heart
