fear or Love

One of my main teachers in the Course is my best friend Kala, who does not study it, but demonstrates it  by her way of being. Today she told about a colleague in gestalt-therapy, who during a meeting had felt her buttons triggered and had reacted with becoming mean and bitchy. She found afterwards the place in her mind where she had been afraid of loosing and being less than, and had concluded that “this is always so – when we are bitchy or mean in any way whatsoever, it is always because on some level we feel vulnerable or crushed in some way.We are reaching out for help and understanding. There are no exceptions to this.”

Underneath any meanness at all lies the cry for love: patience – understanding – non judgment. Kala said that there was one other woman who said that there were exceptions to this – some people were just mean  all through.

And I recognized the need we/I have to blame and project.

But the beauty and peace that lies in knowing that there are no exceptions is awesomely beautiful

    If it is all a dream….
    And it is…….
    Then none – not one part –
    is real! It’s all projection!
    Good post, Nina!
