Expectations and Vulnerability

When you get angry and have a grievance against someone for not doing or acting the way you want, they feel that unconscious burden of expectations that is being placed on them. Because you are reacting from fear and an illusory view, they often react from the same, trying to cast off those expectations. This is not an authentic interaction. An authentic interaction is one where you get to the root of what is going on and you are able to discuss with the other person why you are acting or reacting in a certain way --- and they are able to do the same. It doesn't mean that immediately changes the way you act or react, but shedding complete Light and honesty as to your motives provides an immense space for God to enter and healing to occur.

This is a world of illusion, and it is exacerbated by all the falsity we are fed through the media and advertising. Come to know thyself by being fully willing to look at your motivations, your defenses, why you do and say the things you do. Be willing to be vulnerable and admit those things to others and they will surprise you and often do the same. Even if they don't, you have created healing for yourself and you have planted a seed in them.
