Why we have to abandon violence? Part I
The essence of the evolution of the individual is taking full responsibility about everything that is happening in our lives.
It doesn’t matter who provokes us, who triggers us, what they say or do. The only thing that matters for us from the evolutionary point of view is our reaction to the “trigger”. We are responsible for own actions and reactions regardless of who did what to us, or who said whatever. We can of course try to find excuses and explanations for violent reactions or other lower vibrational endeavours. What we have to know is that there is no valid excuse for being aggressive. Aggression creates aggression. Brutality is not to be excused.
Violence comes from fear. Although it may sound not real, but indeed violence is a reaction to fear. Fear of losing someone, of being misinterpreted, fear of loosing status, fear of death, fear of getting hurt, … For some it may start making sense. But in order to make sense, courage to accept that we may not be perfect, knowing that we’re most of the time behaving ,inappropriate has to be there.
When one automatically goes with the violent instinct, the situation most of the time degenerates and it may spiral negatively with very bad repercussions following.
Let’s say someone calls us idiots, and we decide to punish them for saying that, and we hit that person. No good thing can come out of that choice of you to become violent. Let’s take some potential consequences: person falls and dies- jail for the aggressor. Person falls and hurt themselves badly… Jail and/or vengeance from the victim who decides to strike back; the person hits us so hard that we die; a fight is born and both get really damaged and the enmity will be for ever, each time they’ll see each other will try to hurt one another; there a multitude of other similar scenarios and none of them is positive. Even let’s just say that you hurt him, and everything goes cold, he forgets, you forget and life continues like nothing happened, still the bad deed will be creating bad situations in your life because somewhere deep inside our being we judged ourselves for doing that.
But all the above situations can be avoided by knowing that you are not an idiot (or whatever the other person calles us) , but deciding to allow the aggressor to have their opinion. Anyway, You can bless(say something peaceful) him, you can just turn around and go, or you can say thank you, … Each of these choices will astonish the aggressor who subconsciously or not consciously was trying to provoke you but it will defuse the potential dangerous situation spirals up. So we always have a choice to avoid any problems, or to go with the old instinct of violence, which is pulling one down, lower and lower because one low vibration actions attracting more and more bad decisions and actions. The aware person can always change the way they are acting consciously.
