There are times when we have to consciously decide not to take away someone’s perception of the magical nuance of life.
Life is full of magical moments - moments that enamour us to life; moments that allow us to experience that part of ourselves that simply creates passion in our existence.
Almost the entire worldly societal structure is currently functioning because of one set of reasons only: and that is that everything in finance, economics, business and the way we live is based in GUILT and LACK (thus FEAR).
We are made to feel GUILT that we do not do something that “everybody else” is contributing to.
We are passionately told by most media that we LACK something and are thus not whole. (The Jones’s thrive on this..)
So when your friend or partner comments that they have been shocking everybody the whole day (zzzzztt) and that it was actually quite a scream – let them realise themselves, later, that is was probably because they have built up a lot of static electricity because of the synthetic carpeting in the office or because they were wearing lots of synthetic clothing that day- it is not your right to take away their moment of magic. Don’t add to GUILT by having to be right – and don’t add to the fear of LACK because you have to set the record straight – because you have to be right.
There are times when “setting the record straight” is called for – but many times it is not necessary for you to do it.
So the question is not really about taking away the magic…, but if you can resist the temptation to let others know that you know what’s RIGHT!!
If you cannot resist bursting someone’s bubble just because you have to prove to them that you are right and that you know what’s what, then you are falling into emotional immaturity…, and all you are showing yourself is that you need to prove to yourself that you know what is supposedly right or that you are good enough or rich enough or experienced enough or knowledgeable enough…..
…all you are proving is that you are not good enough for yourself.
I am not saying that one must live in a fool’s paradise, but to live gracefully is so much more fulfilling than always being right.
All the best until next time,
In love and light,
