We can’t always like everyone. Sure, I’d like to say that I do. But it would be a lie. Some people just rub me the wrong way. I’m sure you know what I mean.
“I wish I liked her more than I do,” I have said more than once this year.
“I think she might be losing it,” has also come out of my mouth when someone has behaved in ways I think are kind of crazy.
When this happens now, I try to look at what the situation is meant to teach me. What do I need to learn?
What I need to learn is how to look past the very human stories and connect instead with that person’s soul. When I make the effort to do that, what I see is the deep pain that’s buried inside and creating the dissonance.
Oh, how simple it is to love someone that we resonate with. And what a learning experience it is to send love and compassion to someone who we don’t resonate with or even someone who has hurt us. To look beyond the oh-so-human story to what’s going on side.
In the end, we are all one, right? As hard as it might be to see ourselves as being the same as the person we don’t like, at our core, we are. I’m trying to meet people more on the soul level and in that, I’m a work in progress.
Or, as a spirit guide said to me last month when it appeared for a quick message: “You’re in training!” and poof! he was gone.
That spirit was right: we are all trainees.
I try to remember that.
I’m a trainee.
