Most humans respond much more strongly to negative than they do to a positive event. No matter how hard we try to look at the bright side of life, a piece of bad news, malignant gossip or fear-inducing information is a lot easier to run with than good news.
We also react to someone else’s bad behavior much more strongly than pleasant conduct. Case in point is my own experience, directing fine art galleries some years ago. Ten clients would be nice and easy to please, but if the eleventh person was having a bad day, that is the one that would get my attention the most. Since that time I’ve gotten a lot better at being able to tune out drama resulting from low vibrational frequencies, but it remains close to impossible not to be adversely affected from time to time.
Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine ~ Anthony J. D’Angelo
We can ignore negativity, or in a more enlightened scope, not give energy to it, but so many people thrive on it, that unless we choose to live in a protected bubble, it’s the way of the world. From messy family quarrels or rude behavior when out and about in public places, all the way to the horrible, brutal wars that have been fought since time immemorial. Every bit of it is and has been based on human reactions to slights, hurts and trespasses.
Granted, sometimes we feel we would like to fight against injustice and oppression. The desire to be free is also a natural aspect of human nature. Those courageous folks who stood by their ideals and convictions in the face of danger have helped make our world a better place. Sometimes there is no other way to stop an unacceptable situation than by interrupting it using any means possible. We owe a lot to those brave warriors.
As our paradigm shifts, and we enter a new focus of reality and relation to time, we must also shift our focus away from dwelling on the past and getting stuck there. We can accomplish this by cultivating a deep sense of gratitude that we have come this far. Life is still a mystery, but most of us have learned some things we know are true. We can look at the pain and sorrow of what happened then, and say with confidence, “I have survived, or indeed, thrived!”
He who has so little knowledge of human nature as to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition will waste his life in fruitless efforts ~ Samuel Johnson
We can look at the unconscious person we just encountered, and understand where they are coming from. It is a place we have no intention of going, and we must not give them our permission to continue to behave irresponsibly in our presence, but we can see that they are trapped, and perhaps offer them a way out of their negativity. They may take us up on that offer, or it may incite the anger of resistance in them. Either way, their reaction doesn’t matter. The only thing that does matter is where we are coming from. That place makes all the difference in the world.
