I spent this weekend visiting friends from my past, and I see my past self within them. As I had done, they are still complaining about why people in their lives constantly make them unhappy and why they keep meeting the same kind of assholes. My response to them was that they want to change the people in their lives to meet their expectations instead of changing themselves.
The reactions from my friends are resistance. Why should I have to change myself when these people in my life are assholes? Because their behaviors are mirrored within you, and you will continue to attract the same people was my answer. If we don’t learn our lessons, the Universe will send yet another person to teach us the same lessons; thus, we live in this loop like seeing the same movie over and over again.
When we awakened, we realize that we are profoundly broken; we all are and it’s not a judgment because I am also. Once we acknowledge this brokenness within us, we begin to do the difficult and gut wrenching work of facing our demons and pain. Once we heal this pain, the demons will vanish, and so will the assholes. ~ Sahana (Copyright 2012 Kundalini Spirit with All Rights Reserved)
