Release of others

 

Release of others through self-familiarity.

As I get more familiar with myself, there is a natural release of others from my expectations and shoulds.

There are several ways this happens:

I respond to my own images and beliefs, not to what others do or what life comes up with. I even trigger my beliefs through my stories of what is happening. And that’s how it is for others as well. I trigger my own beliefs. They trigger theirs. I take responsibility for my own choices and actions, aim at acting with as much kindness and wisdom as possible, and can be there for others. But how they respond and relate to it is their responsibility. Again, it’s their process and learning.

I recognize how my own choices and actions have innumerable causes, stretching back and out as far as it goes.  It’s the same for all of us.

I recognize how it is all innocent. I believe a story, and cannot help feel, think, interpret and act as if it is true. I take responsibility for a choice and action or not, depending on what I am ready for. And it all has innumerable causes. I can always find one more, and one more. What happens in this life is the local expression of the whole – the Universe and Existence as a whole. We are all innocent in this.

Finally, I may recognize and feel how it is all the play of awakeness.  What happens here – this field of experience – is empty (no thing) and full (appearances), and happens to no-one. And that’s the case for everyone else as well, whether there is the appearance of someone there or not.

And unless there is a clear awakening, or perhaps even then, it is a process. I can do to some extent, and more in some situations than other, and my aim is to move and deepen in this direction.

  • release others
    • we all trigger ourselves
    • we are all responsible for our own choices and actions (how we relate to situations, act etc.)
    • we are all influenced by/product of our past, infinite causes
    • it is all innocent….
    • what I see in others is what I know from myself, and I relate to it in others as I relate to it in myself (mirror)
    • the way I see others is as they appear in my own world of images, I relate to my images of them
    • it is all happening within and as the field of awakeness – empty (no thing), full (appearances), play (Self)
    • give others their freedom + our care, help when feels right out of complete selfishness (which includes empathy, compassion, care, wish for connection)

Release of others through self-familiarity.

As I get more familiar with myself and my own patterns, there is a natural and gradually more wholehearted shift towards releasing others from my expectations and shoulds.

There are several facets to this:

I respond to my own images and beliefs, not what others do or what life comes up with. I may be triggered by it (my stories of what happened), but what is triggered is my own beliefs. And that’s how it is for others as well. They trigger they own images and beliefs.  For me, it is my process and my learning. For them, it is their process and their learning.

I take responsibility for my own choices and actions, aim at acting with as much kindness and wisdom as possible, and can be there for others. But how they respond and relate to it is their responsibility. Again, it’s their process and learning.
