For Those Who Create Pain In You
by Matthew Scott Donnelly
Well, mark these words that they had every bit of reason, from their point of view. When people are suffering, hurt or have some kind of pain chances are in that state of mind they will be drowned out by the pain. Those who are going through pain, are often unaware and the easiest thing to do in a moment of pain is to bring those around you to your level, sincerely the ego.
I can simply say this through experience, I have caught myself many times in the past feeling like if I hurt this person then I will bring them down to my level and make myself feel better. It wasn’t until a very short while ago that I finally recognized this “Feeling better because now that people are not feeling good” as an illusion.
An illusion is a false mind made object. Everything about it is made from the thinking-mind which creates ALL illusions.
The ego is a void within us that already carries the pain. What they said, you may know on a very deep level is not at all true, but it can very well trigger a level of pain within us that may be true and have nothing to do with what they said.
The key here is that, everyone has an ego in some way, shape, form or fashion. It’s always the goal of an ego to bite the ego out of someone else. It’s to play an egotistical game of war.
If the strength of your awareness remains weak, then what others say or do that can harm it will be quite easy. If the strength of your awareness is stronger than it will realize that nothing anyone can say or do will make you any less or any more than who I really am at the deepest level.
“Don’t let people talk down to you.”
This statement has been so often said by people that don’t want to see you get hurt. Even false love can create an illusion, because nobody can talk down to the real ‘you’. How could someone talk down to unconditional love? The only thing that stays constant in this life is who you really are, the experience present moment and love. And both the present moment and love are unfazed from anything external.
The realization of this true self is the true purpose on this planet and the more we let the clouds of conditioning dissipate the less others words will hurt us, and less effect outside egos will have on us.
Clarity happens when we begin to have pain over others and that pain brings forth to us mindfulness. by Matthew Scott Donnelly
