We all have a magnifying glass through which we view the
world. The events, the circumstances, the people that surround us. But the
thing is, we all have the illusion that we all view the world in the same way,
because “our view” automatically means it is the “norm”. We each have a
different lens, and thus a different view of the world, a different
interpretation to life events and a different perspective on all experiences
What we don’t understand or don’t agree with is usually
feared. But because fear is a feeling that contradicts our egoisms, we tend to
demean everything different to our own view. We treat it with contempt, spite,
even anger and dislike simply because we have a different “rulebook” of how the
world should work.
When it comes to people, we become hypocritical, showing a
positive attitude on the exterior but inside boiling with rage against them.
This is often the source of our negative behaviour towards people we dislike,
disagree with, or simply cannot communicate well with. it is the reason why respect
is not something that can be demanded but rather it is earned. We tend to
reciprocate the attitude and behaviour we receive.
Unfortunately, though, not everyone has the same heart as
us. Not even the same mind. Thus, it is unrealistic to expect that we’ll get
back what we send out. Because not all people have the same lens. And if it is
blurred, the world seems a little foggy and more pessimistic than we hoped.
We all get what we deserve in the end. So let’s try and be
kind even to the people we dislike or who treat us badly. Karma will take care
