Experiencing Reflections

by Shervin on September 16, 2013

One summer I took an Alaskan cruise with my wife. During the trip I met many people whose traits I admired (including the wait staff with their varied international backgrounds). I also noticed several people whom I did not want to be close to or sensed something was off about them.

We all have heard that what we see or feel about people (especially if there is a strong charge) is a reflection of ourselves. I am reporting to you what I experienced is not something out there about people, rather people reflecting something about me inside of me.

Next time when you reflect about other people (positive or negative), keep in mind that it may have nothing to do about them and is all about you, if you are willing to listen to the messages.

 

What You Experience

What a man sees and experiences outside is what he has within himself and may not be aware of.

This is what a man experienced himself through experiencing and observing people.

He experienced part of him over-indulging and feeling entitled.

He experienced part of him excited about his new choices and his new found courage.

He experienced part of him optimistic and joyful no matter where he was.

He experienced part of him gentle and caring knowing his days were numbered on this planet.

He experienced part of him motivated and hard working.

He experienced part of him trying hard to get more out of what he put in.

He experienced part of him seeing people as separate tribes of people.

He experienced part of him gentle and considerate so he would be appreciated and liked.

He experienced part of him occupied with lack and pure survival.

He experienced part of him trying to control events and outcomes.

He experienced part of him trying to be quiet so secrets were not verbalized.

He experienced part of him sticking to principles no matter what the cost.

He experienced part of him wanting to be close and loved.

He experienced part of him dedicated to family and being together.

He experienced being separated from his children in order
for his children to survive and to thrive.

He experienced part of him with many unmet desires and yet smiling.

He experienced part of him who was in a beautiful structure yet could not enjoy it.

He experienced part of him having a good appearance and yet hiding many perceived “flaws”.

He experienced part of him having to leave family and country to better his family’s lives.

He experienced part of him providing relaxation to others but not relaxed himself.

He experienced part of him angry at his mate yet could not express it.

He experienced part of him using fear and guilt to nudge others to do things.

He experienced part of him happy to connect with different cultures.

He experienced part of him proud of hardships he has gone through.
