Are You Really So Different?
I had an interesting week. Have you ever felt on the verge of a break through and then you were distracted by seemingly innocuous events? Well, on Tuesday of this week, someone hacked into my computer and sent an email to everyone on my email list. The email said I was in London, had been hit over the head with a gun, and could you send me money. I had to change my password and spent hours on the phone with AT&T and Yahoo, trying to get things back to normal. I lost contacts, current emails for the entire
day, and my Sent Items were gone. It did require me to spend a few hours doing unexpected cleanup work and replying back to the 60+ people who called or emailed me, time that I'd allocated to writing this newsletter, etc.
I did get a little annoyed at the end of the day when I was tired. But mostly, instead of feeling "put out" by it, I decided to look at it from the angle that people care about me. I also recognized it for the distraction it was, and I wasn't about to let it bring me down. I had several people tell me how angry this attack on me had made them, that it really inflamed them that people would try to capitalize on someone who is doing good in the world. They were evil and should be punished appropriately, etc. I do appreciate my friends'
concern for me. However, what should we take away from this? When we criticize others (even for much more drastic, seemingly justifiable, crimes such as Hitler-like behavior) we can't resolve anything at that level of thinking. It separates us and somehow makes us feel better, but only temporarily.
Because we are all one and connected, when we feel hatred or repulsion toward another, it only worsens the situation instead of adding light to it. We actually feel worse. This person who hacked into my computer must really need money. He must be living in fear and desperation, and so he's being punished severely as it is to live in that kind of hellish mind. Our anger only exacerbates the situation. Don't fall prey to this type of thinking. Take the high road. Any time you see someone doing some abhorrent behavior, instead of getting angry, say a quick ho'oponopono prayer, "Whatever part of me created the suffering that I SEE or PERCEIVE in _______________, I love you, I'm sorry, please forgive me, thank you."
You are saying this to yourself, not because you created the situation, but because you are perceiving it in such a way that causes YOU to suffer. If you judge and resent others for their "bad" behavior, you are actually part of it then. If you want healthy relationships, you must let go of the belief that you are different from others. In actuality, you are the same. You are meant to learn something from those who trigger you.
