My morning visit to Face book brought me to this article written by David Cain. I have never heard of him and now I hope to follow his ‘wisdom’ around and see what else he has to say. I think this article is brilliant. I invite you all to take a read of it and let it settle into your consciousness.
MY FRIEND BOB AND HIS SWEET GIRL…
“HOw To Deal With People Who Frustrate You’.
Essentially, David is saying, in my words. Imagine all people, and I mean EVERyONe, especially those that bug the living bejesus outta ya, as enlightened beings here to share a lesson and teaching for you. It simply requires you to be paying attention and getting off your own ‘high horse’ of being right and paying attention to the lesson. Rather than let a situation and person make your day and moments ugly and negative; shift your attitude by seeing this as a opportunity to take charge of the moment and find goodness in the opportunity of enhancing your goodness for positive change. What lesson in the moment do you need to ‘Get’?
This is one of David’s quotes. mmmm.
“Only when you convince yourself that you know more than your teacher can you fail to learn.” DAvid Cain.
There’s no going back to that old grief
That big hurt I let you give me
It absorbed through all my pores
in the searing anguish of heart break
There’s no going back to that
And why would I? Why wrap myself
In all that fire that took my breath away
Blistered and raw from the inside out
We had no love of self with no love to give
Illusive we grieved our flesh together
HOpeful for love’s repent and histories lies
In the sweat and fraught of our joining
The difference now is that my heart is healed
Still soft and tender, un-scathed in my forgiving
And you were the greatest gift of all
In the knowing that giving of self is not to lose self
A vulnerable heart is not a weakness
And true love is found in the bliss defined
By the care in my own heart felt wisdom
Vast enough to gather love in all it’s gifts
