Suffering brings certain reactions in the individual, either suffering due to our own ignorant choices or some subconscious conditioning programming our deep personas, and these reactions manifest violence most of the time, explosive, irrational, and prejudiced, because these are reactions based on fear.
Fear comes along and the mind alters itself by the dark presence of it, and so this mind distances itself from clarity, harmony, love, deeper understanding; consequently, this mind, overwhelmed by fear, seeks security, it says, “Before somebody else hurts me or judges me in any way, I’ll do it first to them.”
Obviously, this mind is absurd and ignorant, without any rationale, it can only see the image of fear and suffering it has built; and so, it overtakes the whole being, which brings tension to the body, sicknesses, and patters of fog in the higher thinking process.
This mind, this individual is lost, and it is of great value to try and understand the psychology in his reaction; not put up with it, but not fall victim of his manipulation and violent reactions either. Oftentimes it is better to walk away to keep our own peace of mind.
Fear has a way to overwhelm the mind of a person, just like fog overwhelms the pure air of a fresh evening near a beautiful lake. And this fear hides behind pride and heated, violent patterns of thoughts, crooked views which change the whole structure of the human being, at a point where the same fear, the same irrational and explosive persona takes hold and guides the person’s interactions. But for your own sake and growth you must put it out of your mind, forgive and forget, move on, choose to not let it affect you. Change your thoughts, work on something else, drive yourself to an inspirational, more productive task instead of dwelling on frustrating or angry thoughts towards what happened in the past. Ask yourself: Who is in control here…?? And what kinds of thoughts will help me move on…??
It is certainly enlightening to see the truth of it and understand the mind in this process, because in our daily lives we might be interacting with these persons; so, to avoid to get sucked into their dramas, and often perhaps to help them see this, is a great trait to master and practice to better walk the path of our lives.
“Don’t Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz; Mexican author of Toltec spiritualist and neoshamanistic texts.
