Respect for all beings
Being friendly towards other beings is a nice thing, not because you have to be nice to all of the people, but only because you understand this creation is just a part of you.
Things that look “bad” or “negative,” are a part of this world. A creation we cannot understand the size of it – when everything exists in it.
Try to be in contentment with everything because it brings you more joy and maturity, even become friendly with your pain and see how it passes faster. The experiences that come to you are not coming by mistake to you.
It came to you because you came to learn with it something, otherwise, why should it arrive at you?
You are in this world to learn who you are, your true essence.
And to learn this knowledge, you better start looking at everything and everyone as a whole, one creation.
We are parts of the same one.
When you start seeing it like this, you don’t only see others as part of the whole but as part of you.
Then you can realize the meaning of Ahimsa – non-harming.
Keep the harmony between yourself and others, because they are part of you, and your actions affecting your energy and your atmosphere too.
This understanding can bring peace to you.
In the same time, the yoga tradition is saying clearly that you should be aware of the energy of people you are living and spending time with because it affects your energy too.
So accept the whole, and with it choose your friends well, the yoga tradition suggesting.
It is relationships, that teaches us something about ourselves.
And when you learn it you got the lesson you pass the test, and you move on.
Never complain or try to understand why things are working like that. You can, but it will not bring any fruit.
Better to be in acceptance inside of you, towards the whole picture, and bring positive energy from yourself as much as you can, and remember the divine (the bigger) picture. Look at everything as if it’s part of the divine one, and if you can’t? fake it until you make it.
The Bhagavad Gita is telling us:
(12.2): The Blessed divine god said: “Those who remember me daily, everywhere and every time, and always engage with me with devotion to me, with loyalty; complete faithfulness, and dedication, I see them as the best yogis.”
