There’s No Talking To Some People
Most people believe in their persona, and nothing else.
Persona: the character presented to and perceived by others. A role, a mask, played by an actor.
We hide behind a persona, a self image, in a belief that whatever we think is how we are. This persona is merely an adopted programme that has become precious to us, and so we protect our baby through hope and fear. Every single thought that we hold on to in our mind – whether negative or positive – creates the sort of world we persona-lly live in.
The problem is that this persona, this self, is not easy to shake off. We are stuck with our chosen script, and so we cannot leave our stage. Talking to some people is impossible because it is we who have to learn their lines in order to allow them to perform. And it’s a very short play!
If we go off script (their script) we are met with blank looks, and people wander off, looking for another actor to play with.
We are actually living in different dimensions! There is a view that there are beings all around us, in other dimensions beyond our visual spectrum, but we only have to recognise what we are seeing in our own visual dimension – and we are not all on the same wave length, are we?!
Compassion is the ability to tune in to others
for a short while.
It’s only a short while because, given a chance,
they will return to the stage as soon as possible.
“Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.”
