Someone who hurts you – a rare and precious treasure ❤

“To meet someone who really hurts you, is to meet a rare and precious treasure. Hold that person in high esteem, and make full use of the opportunity to eradicate your defects and make progress on the path. If you cannot yet feel love and compassion for those who treat you badly, it is a sign that your mind has not been fully transformed, and that you need to keep working on it with increased application.”

– Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

This is an interesting view on how to see your difficulties. Everything can be of value and everything can inspire you to become stronger as a person. You can find value in everything that happens to you – including the behaviour of others – especially those who treat you badly.

Those who love you and always approve of you and what you do don’t teach you to love unconditionally. They are just easy to appreciate and love because they act in loving ways. But those who behave in deterimental ways, they are your true inspirers and teachers of unconditional love and unconditional happiness. If you can find your way to love again and to feel happy again – even though they did this awful thing now you are free. You don’t need them to behave in ways that please you, in order to feel pleased. What an empowered gift! ❤❤❤

Don’t push against what feels bad, love what feels good

There is a beautiful and valuable difference between looking at what you don’t like and trying to make it go away and looking at what you do like and apprecating it.

Both of these perspectives are focusing your energy but one of them blocks you from reaching your highest potential and the other one allows you to become who you truly are and reach your highest potential.

Would you really spend so much time complaining about insignificant things – or big world events – if you knew you are actually hurting yourself and your body every second you do something that fuels your negativity? Probably not. But it is a habit, a habit most people are so used to practicing it feels like the normal, natural and expected way to react when things go wrong. 

Sure you can let negative things bring you down for a moment, and you can allow yourself to feel what you feel. But you CAN, little by little, tune yourself into a more general, loving and benefical way of focusing. 

You are of true value to others, yourself included, when you remain centered in your emotional balance and you see the value, the beauty, the good aspects and the potential for change, solutions and improvements in every situation.

Everyone has beauty, goodness and love within them – if they have acted in hateful ways it simply means they are blocking themself from being who they truly are with their negative perspectives. If you push back in anger, you do the same thing. You don’t rid the world from hate and fear by more hate and fear – the answer is love, unconditional love.
