#PoeticTuesday

Do You Really Think You Know?

It’s so easy to judge someone
From your restricted point of view
But there’s a hidden iceberg
Behind what you think is true

You don’t know all the circumstances
Nor how these people feel
You don’t know where they come from
And what they do not reveal

It’s not your business to define
What’s right and what is wrong
Or what someone can handle
If they are weak or strong

Actions and reactions are
Two different pairs of shoes
We direct our own ships and
Get what we need to continue the cruise

In Love and Light

Erika, well said my friend. We don’t know all the circumstance, especially when the person telling the story is giving you very biased or untruthful version. It takes two to have a communication problem. Keith

Every opinion is just an opinion. It may give us additional perspectives on something but it barely is the only truth. As you said, when it comes to clarifying something between two people, it might not work when there is a mediator in the middle. Thank you, Keith!

I am no exception. And yes, it is hard for others to understand one BUT it makes those, who are hiding their feelings, more understanding and less judging regarding others. Thank you, Gail πŸ’–

Being quick to judge will always likely bring about the wrong conclusion. Understanding comes through awareness and that comes when we are made aware. A very insightful poem, Erika.

Most definitely not dear lady. We judge merrily because we don’t respond to their particular fear…but we all have our own. Until one day I finally saw and understood mine…and within that understanding I now have an empathy and compassion for all others…because I now see what I was within, in those others. Even to the point that I can understand murderers, child molesters and just each and every one of us in those many strides. Each has a purpose, their purpose, so that they can see, as I did, and understand one thing only. That within them is a self doubt that tests them, an inability to love themselves because of that self doubt and projecting that very heart to all. This is a journey to find that understanding. It matters not of how it is built, but of why it is built…and in that understanding that self love will be found, that one when finally understood will show unconditional love by that very act of understanding ourselves and letting that pain and fear go. To understand those conditions we place on ourselves within those self doubts, will give us an appreciation like no other when we finally see them for what they really are…a very loving guide to that unconditional love we have ever searched for, that love we think is ‘out there’ but is gently waiting within to be discovered in this journey…and set us free. So beautifully, lovingly free ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

You are touching a very delicate yet so profound point here, Mark. No one acts without a greater purpose behind. Everything that happens through someone connects past and future. It affects everything in the way that lets karma speak and teach. The victim, as well as the perpetrator, are following their plans. It is hard to accept but right in that lies the path to awareness. Amazing that you are mentioning this since I already scheduled a post for next Monday that talks about this.
Thank you very much for your insightful and deep thoughts, Mark πŸ’–
