Coexist

There have been many times over the past few years when my mother has been attacked by those who do not believe as she does. There is no reason for this to happen. We are all on very different paths during our incarnation. There is no reason to argue or attack others because they do not agree with you. There is no reason to be cruel to one another.

We had the very fortunate opportunity to discuss this a little bit with someone who does not believe as my mom does. This person was very kind and loving about it. The person was merely curious about what it is that we believe and read a couple of blog posts. She then made a couple comments and asked a question. When she said that she really did not agree, she did so in a very kind and loving manner. She was respectful of my mom’s right to believe as she wishes.

This is the way all of our interactions should be with each other. There is never a reason to be nasty about it. Those who feel the need to do so are those who are not secure in what they believe. They need others to agree with them to validate them. This person appears to be secure her in her beliefs because she did not try to convert my mother back to Christianity. This is truly living your faith.

I want to make it clear that this does not just apply to Christians. It applies to everyone of every belief system. This is also meant for Spiritualists. The reason this is so is because Spiritualism is based on the premise of acceptance.When you admonish one another for what you believe, what you eat, how you live your life, then you are straying away from this premise. None of these things is what is important in the Spiritual life.

You must work on yourself and let others work on themselves in the manner that is appropriate for them. One shoe does not fit all. When you have worked on yourself you can then help others with an open mind, kindness, and compassion. This is not an evangelism mission to get people to see things your way. We have our own separate paths. What is right for you may not be right for someone else. This is as it should be.

Do not force your beliefs, your lifestyle, your diet, etc. on anyone else. This is not for you to do. Acceptance is for you to do. – John
