Occasionally on this site, a post attracts the angry. Mention of a teacher someone has an issue with or a subject that pushes someone’s buttons. Recently, a 6-year-old quote got someone going.
The irony of the issue raised is the nature of the Internet – something I’ve written about on my other blog. The more comments about a subject you make on-line – positive or negative – the more traffic you drive to the site. This is because the search engines that drive traffic are attention driven. Nature works the same way too.
If you make efforts to discount or attack something, you actually make them stronger. What you battle gets bigger. I’ve seen this demonstrated energetically as well. When you resist someone’s energy, you amplify it. Let go of grievances and go for solutions.
“I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.” – Mother Teresa
This is a great key to spiritual progress. Do you wish to live in grievance or in peace?
Let the laws of action take care of your former tormentor. What goes around, comes around. The more someone lies, the less they will be heard. And the more someone steals, the more they will lose. The more anger they express, the more they will be surrounded by it. Your job is your life. Give that your attention and watch it grow.
