Omission is Aggression

Omission is Aggression

In recent days, thanks to some nourishing talks of forgiveness and emotions that I'm attending with a nice group of friends and countrymen, a concept that I used to take lightly has been haunting me: the indifference. When we think in violence, we immediately relate it with hitting, with hurtful words, with psychology that hurts ... rarely do we notice that indifference is an outstanding, quiet and very active participant in the crime. Ignoring someone is annihilating him, nullifying his existence.

When we are indifferent with another (person or animal), we are absolutely insensitive, void of any affection and compassion, besides injuring the other and perhaps – watch out - leaving an indelible mark on him ... and the news is that also in ourselves, since our inner growth is also paralyzed. We block the way to a gift of which we are provided: our sensitivity.

With this thought, I'm not urging to go to unnecessary extremes, such as standing up in the middle of the street and shouting "good morning" to everyone ... I only extend an invitation to think for a moment, in that or those who have been unnoticed for us and who at our single glance, a smile on our faces or a "hello", would provide a tremendous joy, a positive impact on them. In conclusion, I personally believe that this mode of violence, the indifference, is also present when we witness some cruel and unfair act and we stay inert, in the role of spectators or we pass (this, of course, while not putting ourselves at risk when trying to stop it). In the path of personal development, it is necessary to remove the mask of these silent and violent attitudes, which are often simply erroneous defense mechanisms, in order to extend our spiritual potential, avoiding or suppressing the process of evolution as human beings.

From here I smile at everyone, paying more attention to everything that went unnoticed before.

    Que lindo escribes Mone ! Con estás ideas, me pones a reflexionar, hay conductas de las cuales, no nos damos cuenta... y como comentas, tal vez nuestro proceder deje alguna marca en alguien y ni nos percatemos , sin embargo, hay una peor, no tener la apertura para evolucionar como buenos seres humanos! Te mando abrazos!!

  • Y yo te mando BESOS !! Gracias por leerme y compartirme lo que tú piensas y sietes a este respecto... Eso me alimenta mucho. Qué honor tenerte de lectora. Espero abrazarte pronto.

  • Shan, muchas gracias por leerme ! TQM !!!
