Truth and Justice

Posted on: April 13, 2010

I was reading the book “The Four Agreements” the last two days. I am on the Second Agreement, don’t take things to personally. Ok I do take things personally especially if I am involved. If something is not right, I take responsibility. The answer to this is do not take it personally, well I wonder about this type of thinking.
I understand that I should not take things personally when someone has a bad day or tells me something about myself that they think is wrong. I understand the truth that all people have their own opinions and ways to do anything. for any given issue, item, problem, or anything else for that matter, there are many ways to get to the same outcome. Too bad more people do not think of it that way. They have the “It is my way or the highway mentality” Is that really truth or justice for that matter? Well it is right in their mind and there is no arguing, or is there? Should we take this seriously or not?
I was actually taken by surprize when I read the following:
“If you have a need to be abused, you will find it easy to be abused by others!” Now I understand this to a point, say if a person is abused and then marries and continues the pattern. What I don’t understand in this statement is that it implies that there is a need to be abused by the abused and the abuser just fulfills that need. This is like saying come hurt me I love it….crazy….
I do like the idea that if you don’t take things personally, you will not be bothered by those untruths or injustice that has come out from others in your life. It is their issue and not mine, even if they have hurt me from the depths of my soul. (Well that one will take a few days or weeks to discern!) Keeping my heart open and not letting anyone hurt me by their actions, deeds, or words is truth and justice truly in action. Kind of like the posted picture of my daughter, unencumbered, free, heart loving, not taking things personally, loving her life, being confident, loving, caring, strong and wonder filled.
