Different Lenses


As I progress on my emotional healing and spiritual journey, I am able to see the world through different lenses now.  I see my former enemies not as evil, but as sad characters in a play or movie.  In the past, I felt injured and hurt by these people, but now I see them as injured and wounded characters.  It is difficult to describe how people who hurt me earlier no longer are able to hurt me now.

I see their broken families and the aftermath of the destruction they caused themselves. Their spouses have moved onto other partners, their children have disassociated from them, and they are left to pick up the pieces of the destruction of their own creation.   Their former families move onto separate and happy lives without them.  I feel nothing but sympathy for the outcome of their lives.

This is karma at work.  Good karma is rewarded, and bad karma results in destruction.  In the past, I took pleasure in their failures and destructions.  Now, I only wish that they have learned their life lessons, and hope they turn their lives around.  When will we learn? When we hit bottom?  When we lose everyone we love?  When we lose everything?  These life lessons are hard, and karma can be harder.  Only we can change our karma, for no one else can do this for us.

  1. It is called empathy…it is the beginning of unconditional love 🙂
    The wisdom you have gained in going through and understanding your own journey, allows you to ‘see’ within another. And understand that those really hard encounters are all done with great love…for you.
    And yes, it is a long hard road, but how else would we appreciate and love ourselves.
    If it was just given to us, we would take it with a grain of salt, and not understood what it meant because we had not experienced it. It is like you explaining what it is like to walk on the moon. You would have an idea, but until you actually do, only then can you truly speak its truth.
    Experience teaches much.
    Great post, thank you for sharing 🙂
