Whew. Catchy title eh?
So here is the story that goes with it.
My Thanksgiving dinner started with 3 and ended up with 8. I was intrigued when a a friend of mine asked if he could bring someone. In 5 years I have not seen him in a relationship and wondered if his heart was jaded to this prospect. I was delighted to meet the woman he started seeing but much to my dismay 5 days later a post on facebook alerted me to some mishap.
When he came by 2 weeks later I asked about the post and if it meant they broke up.
You got it.
He said ‘I don’t want to talk about it.’
I said ‘Okay’ and totally dropped all interest about talking about it. We went on to neutral territory about his travels to other countries and then suddenly he started talking about it.
I was so honored that he choose to open up and let his feelings be heard and that he felt safe to do so with me.
But that is not my point in writing this.
I later came to the realization that because I had totally dropped the interest in him talking about it, he then felt the safeness of talking about it. I mean I dropped it from my mind, body, aura so completely that he did not feel tentacles reaching out to probe his mind saying “Oh, but, please, I really do you want to talk about it and I want you to talk about with me and right now.”
I have surrounded myself with wonderful people and want to believe that we are all on this path of enlightenment.
My experience on the bus today gave me a sad glimpse of hate and anger.
This guy got on the bus and obviously did not have money to pay. He kept looking in his pockets over and over and after 5 minutes of this nonsense I muttered (unfortunately out loud) ‘Oh, c’mon, this is ridiculous.’
The guy in front of me turned around and said ‘That’s right. These lowlifes should be shot. He then proceeded to rant and rave about how he wanted to take a gun and shoot all these street people. He said in New York you have to buy a year pass and if anyone tries to get on the bus without a pass the guards can shoot them. He was so full of hatred that I just sat there stunned. Should I run energy into his heart chakra? Would it do any good?
On the one hand I thought the bus driver was being overly patient and should tell the guy to get off the bus if he doesn’t have the fare. On the other hand I thought the bus driver was being very kind. It took me to the end of the bus ride to realize that there must be some rule about people coming on the bus and asking people for money for bus fare. Thus, some people come on and act like this guy did until someone offers to pay the bus fare just so the bus can keep moving. Hmmmmm. Well, it was an experience for sure.
