Within my space

I have often wondered to myself, if given a hypothetical scenario; would it be natural if I confront a person who is causing trouble to others, or if I approach a person who is in trouble without the person requesting for help?...or would it be unnatural if I just be and observe from afar and not interfering with what ever that is going on in that person's space?...I have often reminded myself this, whether I may be right or not, that if I approach the person causing or experiencing trouble, I think that I might be interfering with the natural experience the person might be experiencing. And since there is much more cause and effect rather than right or not, I probably would be altering the effect of the experience one is encountering or need to encounter if I do step in. So, question here is, would it be cruel to not take action when you witness a trouble? Still, in our complicated human world, some feel the need to do something about it because they feel a sense of protectiveness or responsibility. Some were also told to be ignorant for not doing something bout it. Nonetheless, it would be necessary to always check with our intentions first before we proceed to take the next step. Perhaps that must've been how the phrase begun "it's not my place to speak or do..." because really...sometimes the best thing to do is to just be.

Working in and out

To attempt not feeling hurt inwardly is to blame the outside.

To blame the outside, would also mean failing to work inwardly.

Failing to work inwardly would lead to feeling hurt within.

The answer would probably be, it is best to understand the context, the cause of the situation and the effects from what happened.

Work inward and outward. 

Let it go with forgiveness, and just be Love.

Cheek to Cheek

 "...If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also..." Matthew 5: 38-42

Perhaps they have gotten it all wrong. 

To offer your other cheek to be slapped does not mean that we are giving in.

Instead, metaphorically it means to offer loving-kindness continuously with understanding and awareness to the one who is unaware.

Or in other words, let's put an end to the vicious cycle so that it would not continue to propel into another negative experience again, and again.

Silent; seen as lack of self-esteem,
Silence as a sign of intelligence.
Silent; seen as lack of stance,
Silence as a sign of observation.

Silent; seen as timid,
Silence as a sign of boldness.
Silent; seen as opinion-less,
Silence as a sign of reflection.

Silent; seen as ignorant,
Silence as a sign of awareness.
Silent; seen as frustration,
but Silence as a sign of Love & Truth.
