Embracing People’s Opinions

Embracing People’s Opinions

Not wanting to be affected by other people's opinions, the confused mind withholds love from anybody who seems to threaten its self identity. 
It relates from a desire to have its cravings fulfilled and leaves broken-hearted people in its tracks. 
But being affected by other people's opinions is only a problem when there is confusion about who/what is being affected, and for what purpose....
While the mind identifies itself as an individual amongst other individuals, naturally it experiences resistance to being affected negatively by the opinions of people and craving for being affected positively by the opinions of people. 
But the purpose of being affected by opinions at all is to help the mind recognize that the individual person is really an extension of awareness witnessing an individual perspective through the currents of consciousness; and that ALL apparently individual persons are extensions of the same witnessing principal. 
Unwillingness to feel the effects of being a separate individual is what makes the mind withhold loving kindness from other people...which is really an attempt to make its individual self comfortable within it's own separate illusion. 
But through focusing attention on that which is aware of other people's opinions, the mind is turned toward embracing the opinions of other people and appreciating them for the the gifts of awareness that they bring. 
Naturally, the mind begins to express more loving kindness toward people, and if attentions remains focused on awareness, it becomes impossible to make illusions of suffering for anybody. 
You are all that is! Don't be fooled by the illusion that people are either for or against you. 
No matter what appears on the surface, every interaction is between perspectives in consciousness, offering one another gifts of awareness.
Thank you for sharing your gifts! I love you!
