anonymous Giving The Freedom To Live - Accepting The Journeys Of Others June 20, 2007 10:54 AM

Each of us, in life, walks on the special path that the
soul is destined to undertake. Our journeys are very different and we
progress at different rates. The pitfalls and blessings we encounter are
unique, yet we are all learning and no one form of knowledge is more
important than any other. Even so, when we observe others, it can be easy
to pass judgment on their decisions and to assume their actions will
correspond with what we feel is right. But for every problem, there are a
multitude of solutions. Everyone makes mistakes and, while watching
others do so can be frustrating, it is important that you accept each
person's unique way of doing things. Giving others the freedom to act in
the way they feel are best without the fear of harsh judgments honors the
capacity for growth that all people possess.

            It is helpful to practice accepting others as they are.
Never judge the decisions of others based on the path you would have taken
because every person lives by different values and experiences.
Challenge is a universal concept, but we all deal with difficulties in our own
way. Give others the space to fail, but don't harden your heart against
their experience. It isn't wise to try and fix people or control
situations. You may feel compelled to intervene when difficulties arise, but
it is important only to offer guidance when asked unless the person is
involved in a truly dangerous situation or cannot act for themselves.
Failure to choose the right path or to make enlightened decisions is
simply another step on the journey. It is a means to experience and
wisdom. Letting go of the need to influence others does not discount offering
loving support and it does not mean that you need to stop caring. It
does mean stepping back, dissolving judgment, and gracefully allowing
others to live their own destinies.

            Giving others the freedom to blossom in their own journeys
gives you the freedom to take more notice of your own. You may not
condone the actions you see taking place, but your reactions will be more
loving by letting them be. And you will be able to focus on just being
yourself, confident that the path you take is as right, valid, and special as any other.
