Impartial About All

Recognizing the unity of all life,
one sees his own Self in all other beings.
This allows one to be impartial
about all things.

  1. It’s usually ‘easy’ for me to be impartial, yet – as with Sue’s comment- others sometimes are all but indignant that I can be neutral regarding another’s actions. Sometimes I can find a wise reply, and othertimes a reply seems to make it worse. Then they throw me off balance because they are upset with me/my choices/silence/words or that I didn’t ‘side’ with them… Ah, tis hard at times, but that’s just the devil at work behind the scenes, and we can’t let him win!! …

    • It does happen I can’t deny this Lisa. It is rare thank goodness.
      It’s not a dream, even if it seems like one. This is a great and beautiful day, smell that air!

      • i sat with a person from asia today while traveling on the bus; ‘ben hur’ was the movie, and at times i cried a bit in those graphic scenes…. i said to him that we’ve evolved so much w/technology yet we still repeat the same conflicts.. only with more advanced weapons. we talked about how nice it would be if the world had no borders… — we had both been into colombia and were on our way back into ecuador…

        eventually the balance will be where the kind ones outnumber the not so kind..

  2. A wonderful and wise Quote.. One I try to do, not always am I successful in detachment. or in being impartial, for we are human with human flaws and this is part of our make up and experience to master.

    But I see the need for it more and more as we allow the flow to guide us.. When I speak to others of trying to do this, they take is as not caring.. This couldn’t be further from the truth..

    It means none judgement, and that all things have purpose, and all things have opposites in order for us to experience.. And we can not totally fathom the reasoning behind certain experiences some have to endure..

    Nature teachers us this daily as one only needs to walk in a garden, and see how everything survives..

    I hope you have a wonderful week dear Eddie..
    Hope that you will understand my not catching up with your many great posts over the weekend and towards the end of last week..
    I had to have my own time out away from the world of News and technology. As we embraced our family time..
    Love and Hugs dear Eddie
    Sue ❤

    • To become non-judgemental in all things is quite an achievement, but it is attainable. Patience is the first requirement and it may rule other lessons as well. Regarding this Dreamwalker, you never
      need explain how busy you are to me. It happens to us all. Bless your heart.
      thank you so very much with love and blessings, Eddie

      • And I thank you and know that dear kind Eddie, but you are one of my oldest friends here in blog land.. so just out of courtesy I wanted you to know I am so appreciative of your own kind support.. And likewise, I know we are always here for each other..
        Love and Blessings my good friend.. Enjoy a perfect day.. I know I am now going to xx 🙂
