Tolerance

Tolerance is a great power. When we tolerate something or someone then it is as if we are holding back from reacting negatively in some way.

Normally when we react in a negative way, it is because we need to ‘prove’ something, need to be heard, need to show that we have some control etc..

In tolerating we let go of any temporary attainment  that we may receive: being respected, looking smart, getting our own way etc. We let go of all these false supports.

Not to tolerate means to give power to jealousy, ego, anger or any other vice. It allows them to emerge in a gross form. The basis of any vice is always something negative; something that will eventually cause pain and sorrow.

Each scene, word and action that manifests itself is based on a very complex set of circumstances that have gone before. I am not to know the ingredients that have been added so far. If I cannot add a positive ingredient to the mix, then it is better not to add at all. To understand this is to show tolerance. And to tolerate requires wisdom.

Reclaim your power of tolerance.

 

Om Shanti
