The “if you don’t treat me right, I wont treat you right” mindset is the root cause of ALL of the problems we encounter and observe around our environment and world. Also the assumption that a fellow human isn’t treating you right therefore, you will not treat them right.
It makes sense to give to people what they give to you. It’s a tit for tat world afterall. It also makes sense to adjust your attitude accordingly i.e. if a person treats you with respect, you treat them with respect, and if it’s otherwise, you reciprocate same.
Are you like this? Do you feel free? Is your heart at peace? Is your head cool and relaxed? Can you move freely? Are you among the billions of people who deceive themselves? Living an unhealthy life of selfishness and self-centeredness and feeling indifferent?
Well, it’s not an healthy way to live. Somewhere deep down, ‘inside the depth of your innermost heart’, you know. You have chosen to ignore it to the point where it seems non-existent. Just the way you had chosen to ignore it, you can choose to notice it. Funny, 95% of humans live in a state of self-love, also 95% of humans have some form of health issue or the other. Just look around you. The world will become worse if we, individually, don’t make conscious effort to love others, especially when they don’t deserve it. The more we focus on ourselves, the more problem we cause in the world.
I have the desire to change the world positively and I ask myself, “Emiel, what can you do to change the world? You are just one person!”. Following the desires of the world can become quite attractive, especially after considering that you are just one person out of the approximately eight billion people in the world! Wait, you are just one person out of the approximately 8, 000, 000, 000 people in the world! Lol. Well, here is how I cheer myself up.
- First you are not the only person trying to make a positive change in the world.
- I am to focus more on giving myself out than I am on receiving from people.
- The people with the bad habits are the ones who need the most love.
- And I have received so much love already, I should be able to give out as much as I have received.
- And that’s only a few reasons…
Self-centeredness is the Devil’s way to blind the masses. Love is God’s way to open the eyes of the masses. Please love others. Please please please please.
In other to love others successfully, you have to be assured that you are loved. Nobody else can give you that assurance…only your creator…and if you think in the beginning there was nothing and then all of a sudden, for no reason whatsoever, this nothing exploded somehow and then a lots things came out from this nothing…(smh) I don’t know…but for you who know you have Creator, who know how much your Creator loves you that He was willing to die for you…oh wait, He did already! If you know and believe this and you allow yourself to enjoy His love, you will be able to love others too, especially when they don’t deserve it
